My grandson and I took the Uncle Sam boat tour out of Alex Bay to Singer Castle. The young man doing the River tour on the ride up and back was a little corny but informative; we sat on the upper deck, where he stood, so it was easy to hear him.
On Dark Island we were in a group of about 12, and we found our tour guide, Casey, to be very knowledgable, even though it's his first summer doing Singer tours. He spoke well and had lots of good information to share. We really liked the guided tour as opposed to just wandering at Boldt Castle - we felt we learned a lot more that way.
The boat stopped at Boldt Castle on the way back to Alex Bay; we didn't really have enough time to spend at Boldt Castle before hurrying home for dinner with the family, so if I were doing this again, I would do the morning Singer tour and then spend more time exploring Boldt Castle.
If I had to choose one or the other to do again, I'd say Singer, hands down. Loved the informative tour.
