There is no better way to experience the beauty of the St. Lawrence River than from the bow of a boat. The spray in your face- the wind in your hair- its a feeling like no other. The magnificence of the sparkling water, set off by the picturesque islands, offers a potent reminder of why the 1000 Islands has long been the choice of vacationers from around the world. Take off and try tubing, head out on water skies. Explore the islands, and stop for a quick swim or picnic.
Be sure to bring your own boat. Clayton makes it easy to get your boat into the water. The village provides a public launch and docking at many points along the river including a 200-foot floating dock complex in front of the Village.
Clayton also has a number of well-equipped full service marinas where you can buy gas, supplies, dock for the evening, or rent watercraft ranging from kayaks to canoes and small fishing boats to houseboats to pontoon “party boats”.
If you don’t have your own boat, you can enjoy the guided pleasures of a boat tour aboard a double-decker tour boat. The scenic vessels leave Clayton throughout the day, and travel beneath the 1000 Islands Bridge to near-by Alexandria Bay and its romantic Boldt Castle, and around the islands into Canada. You’ll view the extraordinary island homes built by the privileged of yesteryear especially along millionaire’s row, and learn about Clayton’s colorful past filled with bootleggers, pirates and local “river rats”. Perhaps you would prefer a private, personalized tour where you can try a day of “rivering” with a local guide on his private boat. With just your own friends and family aboard, your tour can be as personalized as you like.

Develop, produce and commercialize docks and modular floating systems that are adapted to the needs of our clients all over the world, while participating in our partner’s development!
20 years of continuous growth and success. Our company is now known as a world leader in engineering, manufacturing, distributing and installing modular floating docks. And it’s only the beginning!
Candock Riverbay is located in the beautiful Thousand Islands, in Chippewa Bay, NY, directly on the St. Lawrence River. We are a family owned and operated business that has been in the cottage rental and marina industry for over a decade.
As owners of residential and commercial waterfront properties, we have extensive experience with many different types of permanent and floating docks. After dealing with permanent docks that were extremely expensive as well as uncomfortable to get on and off with season water level changes and floating wood docks that did not hold up to the elements and needed constant maintenance and repair, we began searching for alternative docking solutions. We wanted a dock that was maintenance free with no boards to seal, stain or rot, adjusted with changing water levels, easily assembled, stable, aesthetically appealing and ecologically friendly. After walking on a section of a Candock, we knew we had finally found what we were looking for! Best of all, because of its modular nature, if you want to make your dock wider or longer or change configurations, you can do so easily.
As a distributor and installer of Candock, we are proud to sell a product that we not only believe in, but have personally invested in. Whether you are looking for a small floating dock for your residence or have a large scale commercial job, we would enjoy the chance to talk about your project and see if we can provide a docking solution that would fit all your needs. From anchoring your dock, to ramps, to low freeboard docks and PWC ports, Candock has solutions to make the most out of your waterfront.
