When I stayed with friends in Ottowa, they took me on a lengthy trip down to Niagara Falls.
En route they promised me a wonderful afternoon on the water.
Well it was just that, I had never heard of Ganonoque and the Thousand Islands, but I was in for a treat.
The picture here shows the friends having a snack in Ganonoque Town. It was a shame we did not have the time to explore further than an eatery, but time was against us.
The town is 90 miles from Ottowa and 179 miles from Toronto.
May 2005 back in the Thousand Island area please check out my album of these islands
Here the map shows you the routes that can be taken on the boats.
There are 3 hr cruises, 1 1/2 hr cruises and a 1 1/2 hr. evening sunset cruise, Obviously times are seasonal.
Tel. 613 - 382 - 2144 for information.
There are over 1,700 islands on this scenic stretch of the St. Lawrence River.
On one of the islands you are able to stop and visit is Boldt Castle, the unfinished dream of a penniless immigrant who became the millionaire owner of the Waldorf Astoria, New York.
The castle was a gift for his wife, who died before it was completed.
Boldt's personal chef, Oscar, created Thousand Island salad dressing as a tribute to the region.
- Pros:Pretty scenery
- In a nutshell:A lovely cruise on a lovely summers day
