Guests hop aboard the WildCat boat and embark on a two-hour high-speed adventure tour into 1000 Islands. Cruising at speeds up to 45 mph, riders enjoy such sites as Singer Castle and historical St. Lawrence lighthouses as the background is filled with the sounds of classic rock music or the captain’s narration at various points in the tour. As visitors purchase a cold drink or snack at the bar, wildlife becomes visible nearby, showing off their feathers and impressive worm collections.
1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises
When Captain Andy boarded his first ship at age 17, he had no time for sightseeing—the young merchant marine was too busy hauling iron ore, road salt, and coal to factories along the banks of the Great Lakes. Maybe that's why Captain Andy now takes such delight in whizzing past idyllic islands at 45 mph in the newest addition to his fleet, a Wildcat catamaran. Though an adrenalin rush accounts for some of the Wildcat's appeal, Captain Andy is most pleased that the boat's speeds can help him expose passengers to even more island attractions during his informative and entertaining tours.
A native Ontarian, Captain Andy touts the Brockville waterfront as one of the most accessible and diverse in the world, and happily points out his favourite waterfront parks for picnicking and fishing during his trips. In the same vein, his cruising company offers seven diverse tours that incorporate adventure, theatre performances, and local sightseeing to help riders experience all the wonders of the area by water. The seasoned sailor also recognizes the advantage of helming his smaller ships; their compact size not only ensures more intimate tours and more time with passengers, but allows them to duck into the region's narrow channels where larger boats and determined icebergs can't follow.
