NEXUS - Some Questions for Cruising USA

I am a Canadian citizen living in Toronto. Next summer I plan to cruise right around Lake Ontario starting in Wilson, New York and head west along the south coast returning to Canada near the Thousand Islands.

A posting in another forum suggested that if I didn't have a NEXUS card that once I landed in Wilson and did a video phone check in that I would have to do a phone check in from every port I stay at. This seems to be a huge pain in the neck.

Also, if I have a NEXUS card and my wife joins me on the boat while I'm in the USA and she clears US customs at a border point, will I have to report her presence on the boat to Homeland Security?

Any subject matter experts out there? I've already scoured the internet so I probably need help from someone with personal experiences.

Regards,

Allan
