Great trip...personally challenging (but safe) paddling in different conditions, plus history, geology, and awesome scenery and food!

Kayaking the 1000 Islands was a wonderful program. The area is lovely, the town of Gananoque is charming, and our group leader did a great job. We had varied kayak itineraries and learned the history of the area. Each day was fun and I'm so glad I participated in this program.

I had always wanted to see the Thousand Islands of the St Lawrence River. Seeing those islands from water level with time on islands and Boldt Castle was remarkable. A trip of a lifetime.

This is a terrific program for people who enjoy all-day kayak trips in a very beautiful waterway area, with one of the best kayak outfits anywhere. The comfortable accommodations were conveniently located near the waterfront and the historic downtown. I enjoyed all the activities & highly recommend the trip.

I just returned from "Kayaking the 1000 Islands" and HIGHLY recommend it, if you like kayaking. The guide of the group, and the kayaking guides were Excellent, accomodating differences in ability, so that everyone felt included...( and the Fine Weather helped...)

This program has the potential for 5 stars if you like kayaking. We were the first group and there were some bugs to be worked out, foremost among them a "plan B" for bad weather. However the scenery in this region is gorgeous and the outfitter, 1000 Islands Kayaking, is great.
