Summer schedule: Guests will be picked up in New York and New Jersey in the early morning. From there we will travel north to the Thousand Islands (U.S. side) where we will take a Cruise Tour of the area. As the name indicated, the Thousand Islands constitute an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada-U.S. border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario. In addition to taking in the scenery, passengers on boat tours can learn of the history of the region, which was once home to pirates and bootleggers, and enjoy views of some famous spots along the way such as the the mysterious Deer Island, and the famous Boldt Castle mansion on Heart Island. Also, we will see a "shortest international bridge in the world" on Zavikon Island. We will back to hotel for rest in the evening.
Winter schedule: During winter schedule, when thousand islands cruise closed for the season, this tour will go to Secret Cavern, located in upstate New York. A 103-step staircase with various layers of limestone deposited faithfully by the prehistoric ocean is the only way in or out. Many of the caverns in this area were formed largely during the last Ice Age about 38,000-14,000 years ago. "For thousands of years mineral laden water has been precipitating on the walls, ceiling, and floor of the caverns, leaving behind great deposits of golden calcite. When these deposits hang from the ceiling like icicles, they are called stalactites. When they build up from the floor, they are called stalagmites. And when you see calcite dripping down over the walls or covering the rocks, that is called flowstone. " – You will have a wonderful time with all the views mentioned! We will back to hotel for rest in the evening.

Maid of the Mist
Old Fort Niagara
Departure from the hotel in the morning, we will go to explore Niagara Falls, NY where we will take Niagara Falls In-depth Tour and take the famous Maid of the Mist boat ride (closed in winter and will be replaced by Jet Boat). Afterwards, we will go back to the pick-up points in New York in the evening.
Niagara Falls In-Depth Tour - This interesting and exciting tour includes two popular attractions: the magnificent natural wonder - Niagara Whirlpool State Park and the U.S. historic landmark - Old Fort Niagara. The Niagara Whirlpool’s greatest depth is 125 feet. It is estimated the whirlpool formed approximately 4,200 years ago by the upstream erosion of the Niagara escarpment by Niagara River. Old Fort Niagara is a rich historic landmark; it spans more than 300 years. Its commanding presence on the great lake caused it to play a critical role in the French and Indian War, the American Revolution and the War of 1812. The gorgeous Lake Ontario lies behind the Fort.
(Summer Schedule) - It’s the combination of height and volume that makes Niagara Falls so beautiful. More than 6 million cubic ft. (168,000 cubic meters) of water goes over the crest line of the falls every minute during peak daytime tourist hours. This famous Maid of the Mist ride gets passengers as close as possible to the Niagara Falls! The Maid rides right into the mists thrown up by the roaring cascade as the Niagara River tumbles over the edge of the falls. And back to New York.
(Winter Schedule) - If you want your trip more memorable and refreshing, you definitely won’t want to miss the excitement of playing in the whitewater rapids by JETBOAT on the Niagara River. Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours operates a fleet of custom-built vessels designed to the latest innovations in marine technology. The boats use a triple turbo diesel water jet system for propulsion and steering, a design that creates incredible reliability and safety in the turbulent whitewater rapids.
