Customer Reviews:

"Yah, do the Wild's a blast" Rachael V, North Bay (August, 2014)

"Took the one-hour WildCat today with the kids and my 70 year old mother. The speed of the boat combined with a strong breeze made for a very refreshing ride...a nice break from the humidity! Everyone enjoyed the cruise...even my mother who wants to come back next year for the two-hour Wildcat cruise!" - Steve M, Ottawa (July, 2014);

"We had a thoroughly great time on this cruise today and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys speed, and scenic views. The crew were courteous and very helpful as was the office staff handling the bookings. Overall, this boat is no "pussycat" and it moves!" - Vernon H, Kingston (August, 2013 via Trip Advisor);

"This event was one of the highlights of my summer....The WildCat offered an exciting ride with comfort. The waves made the ride all the more enjoyable! The staff were very polite and were open to everyone's questions. My family and I learned so much on the tour, and got to learn a bit of information about the islands and their history. The view was amazing; you could see all of the attractions and islands, especially the old castles. It was an incredible experience, and my family and I hope to go again another year!" - Gabrielle H, Prescott (July, 2013 via Trip Advisor);

Why take the WildCat over the traditional cruises?
The WildCat travels at an average speed of 36 to 38 mph so it is able to cover much more distance than the traditional cruises which travel at an average of 10 mph. Simply put, that makes for a more complete Island experience as you see much more of the Islands. The 1 hour "Singer Castle Express" Cruise makes for a convenient short-term cruise and covers over 20 miles of the Islands, including a view of famous Singer Castle and historic Crossover Island Lighthouse, all the while travelling in the shadows of ships plying the main Seaway Channel! The speed of the boat and its open-air cockpit create a fun experience for passengers of ALL ages! So, choose the WildCat for your 1000 Islands experience!

Is it a scary ride?
No, imagine doing 45 mph in your car? It's just a little more exhilarating over the water and very refreshing on a hot summer's day. By no means are we the fastest boat on the River, the WildCat is just the fastest tour boat in the 1000 Islands.

Why does the WildCat cost more than the traditional cruises?
Well, to be perfectly honest, speed costs money but we assure you that our WildCat Cruises are worth every penny! If this is your first visit to the Islands, why not see them in style? If you've been to the Islands before, you've probably never seen the Islands like this!

Do I need a Passport?
No, the boat does not stop so, no passports are required

Does the boat stop to visit the Castles?
No, the Castles are in the U.S.A. and Brockville has no Customs facilities to clear returning passengers.

What should I bring?
A good attitude, sunscreen and hat, a light rain jacket. Don't forget your camera! It's always cooler over the water, especially with speed so, please dress according to the weather. Bring cash for beverages and snacks; no credit or debit cards accepted on board.

Will I get wet?
Unlike other adventure experiences, including Whitewater Rafting and Jet Boating, our WildCat Cruises are not designed as a "get-wet" experience although we do get some spray depending on the sea state and prevailing winds. Rain is always a possibility too.

Is there food and beverages available on board?
Yes, the WildCat offers a licensed beverage (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and snack service at your seats during low-speed segments of the voyage. Cash only as there is no credit/debit processing available on board.

Are there washrooms onboard?

Will I see anything at that speed?
The high speed segments are across open stretches of water. The vessel slows at the main attractions for commentary and photography.

Is the boat wheelchair accessible?
No, due to the vessel's design limitations.
