What To Expect

Choose a departure time that fits your schedule then make your way to the Thousand Islands Heliport. Meet a helicopter pilot for a short safety briefing and itinerary, then climb into the helicopter, which can accommodate up to three passengers.

Keep your camera ready while flying above the St. Lawrence River and the Thousand Islands Bridge, and cross into US airspace to see the Boldt and Singer Castles, grand, Gilded Age landmarks built with turn-of-the-century fortunes.

Look down at the pretty Manhattan Group islands, and hear about the many ships that have gone down in the Thousand Islands fierce storms and howling winds. Catch a glimpse of the pretty Sisters Island Lighthouse, and begin the return trip to Thousand Islands Heliport, where this tour concludes. High-definition footage of the flight is available for purchase.
