Alexandria Bay Cruise Port, NY

Frederick Gilbert Bourne, the 5th president of the Singer Sewing Machine Co. built the 5 story, 28 room Singer Castle designed by Ernest Flagg. The castle containes secret passatgeways, an underground tunnel, a turret dragon, towers inspired by "The Towers" from "woodstock" by Sir Walter Scott.
There is plenty to see here before your cruise, and ample Alexandria Bay Cruise Port Parking available.

Just for starters, there is Singer Castle, which  was a private residence for 100 years, the castle was opened to the public in 2003. The hour tour took us through the Great Hall, Library, Dining Room, Breakfast Room, Terrace, Drawing Room, Bedrooms, Turret Master Bathroom, Guest Rooms, and 4th floor dormitory. Views from the rooms & secret passageways were impressive. Original furniture, drapes, floor coverings were pointed out by our guide. We walked through t he Castle Greens, Squash Courts, Ice House, Pergola, & Rose Garden.

Geoge C. Boldt, millionaire proprietor of the Waldorm Astorial Hotel, built a full sized Rhineland Castle on Heart Island in 1900. The family shared 4 summers on Wellsley Island while 300 workers, stonemasons, carpenters & artists built the six story, 120 room castle with tunnels, a power house, Italian gardens, a drawbridge, indoor pool, and dovecote. In 1904, Boldt telegrammed the island & stopped construction because his wife Louise died of dysentery. Boldt could not image his dream castle without Louise; he never returned to the castle & the project was never completed.

There is a surprisingly good selection of Alexandria Bay Cruise Port Hotels so you can set up your park and sail  booking and maybe even enjoy a nice tour of Millionaire's Row before your cruise.

If you drive up to the thousand islands area and you do not have a boat then a good way to see the islands, the river and the waterfront is from the deck of a tour boat.

Uncle Sams Tours has been providing tours for at least 40 years. They give you a great selection of tour choices depending on what you want to see, how much time you have and how much you want to spend. They range from a 10 minute shuttle to Heart Island to a one hour loop around 20 islands to a 3 hour dinner-is-served tour of both the American and Canadian channel islands.Prices range from $7 per person for the shuttle (both ways) to the $40 per person dinner tour.Kids' tickets are two-thirds the price of adults.

There is convenient parking near the docking area. Part of the parking lot is paved and part is gravel.
Kids will get a captain's license after they have a chance to handle the big steering wheel on the captain's deck.
Private tours and group tours can also be reserved. Phone for reservations and information.
