1000 Islands Addiction Rehab offers a range of activities for our patients to relax, rejuvenate and heal. Boating, in particular, can be as fun as it is therapeutic especially in the gorgeous 1000 Islands region. Explore over 1800 islands from the peace and luxury of our cruise boats featuring everything you need to sit back and enjoy the warmth of the sun and serene beauty of the St. Lawrence River.
What You’ll See
On your boating excursion, take in these historic and fascinating features:
Boldt Castle: Built by American millionaire George Boldt, construction on this impressive mansion began in 1900 and continued until 1904. The castle is open to tourists from May to mid-October.
Millionaire’s Row: Lined with mansions and yachts, this idyllic section of the river offers gorgeous views that have inspired artists, musicians and authors for centuries. The river, and this area in particular, supports a wide range of wildlife. A peek into the forests could reveal a majestic elk and other larger animals.
Whales: The St. Lawrence River is home to several species of whales including the Mink, Humpback and Blue. These large but graceful creatures roam this area and visitors often report seeing them arcing out of the water or hearing them calling to each other.
Shortest International Bridge: While not really an international bridge at all, the space between the land masses that make up Zavikon Island still presents a beautiful sight. This area got its name due an urban legend that the larger island is in Canada while the smaller one is in the U.S. However, they are both in Canada and are connected by a short footbridge.
Other Activities to Enjoy on the St. Lawrence
The St. Lawrence is beautiful from our non-stop cruise but you can also enjoy other water activities like kayaking, fishing, swimming and sunbathing. There are also tons of islands to explore.
