This is a great introductory video of the Thousands Islands.
I love this video! The Thousand Islands RiverQuest by Helicoptor.
For the full effects of the movie view it in Full Screen (then click escape to bring you back to this page).

Here is a link for additional beautiful photos and information on Boldt Castle. You can also see some pictures that were taken before the renovation began:
Boldt Castle Visitor Information
Note: Ticket prices listed on the above link does not include the cost of the tour/cruise boats.
If you wish to visit the Castle without taking one of the scenic cruises you can travel to Wellesley Island and follow directions to the Boldt Castle Yacht House. You can purchase a package to the Yacht House and Boldt Castle and a round trip shuttle service is included in the price. There is additional docking for private boats as well at the Castle.
New Guinea Impatiens appeared to be the most used flower on the island this year. But that changes from year-to- year.
I like how they landscaped around the rock formations.
I think this might be one of their trial gardens where they test plantings to see how they look together.

The Castle is reached by boat only. It was a little overcast on our ride over to Heart Island.
