Upper River Expedition
Kingston to Upper Canada Village and Return
4 nights, 5 days
Our Upper River Expedition is tailor-made for those passengers who want to experience the full beauty and history of the Thousand Islands. Your cruise vacation will depart from Kingston, Ontario to cruise and thoroughly explore the picturesque Thousand Islands before continuing east past Brockville. Cruising downriver past Prescott, you will encounter the first lock in the St. Lawrence Seaway system at Iroquois, Ontario. The Seaway Control Dam here stretches from the Canadian to the American side of the St. Lawrence River and this dam regulates the water depth throughout the Seaway to Montreal. Beyond Iroquois, as you journey towards Morrisburg, Ontario you will pass over the “Lost Villages” of the Seaway en route to historic Upper Canada Village.
Highlights of this Cruise: This cruise is an excellent chance to witness opulent summer homes, scenic bays, and intimate island passages. With additional stops at the 1000 Islands Heritage Museum in Gananoque, Fulford Mansion in Brockville, and Fort Wellington in Prescott, this cruise vacation is full of the colonial history of Upper Canada and the Thousand Islands.
