It's that time of year again: That time when all you want to do is get outside and see as many beautiful, fall leaves as possible. But when you feel like you want to kick back and relax, while still taking in the view, there's no better thing to do than go on the Kingston 1,000 Islands Cruise.

Located just three hours from Montreal, Kingston is a great town to visit.

Not only is it a university and college town (Queen's University, St. Lawrence College and Royal Military College), but it's also got incredible restaurants, art and history.

In fact, did you know that Kingston was the original capital of Canada?

It's also located in the stunning 1,000 Islands of Southern Ontario.

The Kingston 1,000 Islands Cruises offers a range of cruises and experiences, like the Waterfront and Sunset Cruises.

Each offers a breathtaking tour of the Kingston waterfront and focuses on the history of the city.

And, of course, you'll get some incredible fall views. As we get to October, the colour will be at its most vibrant.

Tickets are $30 plus tax in the week and $35 plus tax on the weekend. The tours run until October 12.

There's is also a full bar with wine, beer and other alcohol for purchase onboard.

Capacity has been limited to just 50 people, which is a quarter of the boat's usual operation.

The team also has a list of COVID-19 protocols to ensure the health and safety of passengers and crew.

While you're there, you can check out one of the trolley tours, too.

In particular, the Ghost & Mystery Trolley Tour takes you on a beautiful drive with some gorgeous fall scenery, then stops at places like the Cataraqui Cemetary, the famous Kingston penitentiary and Rockwood Asylum, an abandoned asylum from the 1800s.

Perfect for Halloween and spook-lovers. If you dare...

Whichever and however you take a tour of Kingston, you'll absolutely love it and will already be planning your trip for next fall.
