ALEXANDRIA BAY — Since opening its doors to tourists May 11, attendance at Heart Island’s Boldt Castle and the Boldt Yacht House on Wellesley Island has declined by 7 percent up through July compared with the same period 2012.

But visitation at the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority-owned tourist attractions appears to be recovering. Over the first 11 days of August, 2,842 more visitors — a 13.4 increase from 24,430 visitors in 2012 — toured the Boldt facilities than last year, according to operators who hope this trend continues.

The castle operates daily through Oct. 20, and the yacht house is open until Sept. 29. The annual Wine Festival and Farmers Market on Heart Island is Sept. 21.
