Some of the best sightseeing in all of Canada is located along Kingston's waterfront. The 1000 Islands have attracted visitors from all over the world from the late 1800's onwards. Fly over the small cottage islands of the Admiralty group featuring Napoleon's Hat, Wanderer's Channel, the Bateau Channel and the Nakomis Lodge.

Boldt Castle was started by George C. Boldt, millionaire proprietor of the world famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New Your City. He set out to build a full size Rhineland Castle in Alexandria Bay, on picturesque Heart Island - for his wife Louise. However, she died before it was finished, so he abandoned the project completely and left it to ruin. Recently restored, Boldt Castle represents an example of the elegance of a by-gone era as seen from the best vantage point - the air.
