Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Alexandria Bay, NY
Alexandria Bay, located on the south bank of the Saint Lawrence River, lies near the Thousand Islands Border Crossing of Canada and the United States. While Alexandria Bay has a relatively low population during the winter months and has no colleges, the late spring, summer, and early fall seasons bring an influx of vacationers and avid boaters. Boat tours are available of the bay and river area daily. Every August, 10 days are devoted to “Bill Johnston’s Pirate Days”, a town-wide festival that features professional performers acting out pirate battles and a “siege” of the town by the “Pirate of the Thousand Islands.” The festival is also educational, with many groups providing galleries, displays, and informative presentations of the weapons and ships used during the Golden Age of Piracy.
