The Tour

The best boat tour in town

Our professional and friendly crew will guide you along the way. Your captains will be there to provide you entertaining, insightful, and informative information about everything you see!

To start you will get a close look at Toronto's bustling Western Harbour front. Then across the harbour you will enter the lagoons of the Toronto Islands and get right into the heart of the islands, seeing historic Hanlan's Point, the Island Yacht Club, and the woodlands of the Island Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary (keep your eyes peeled for a variety of local birds and wildlife, including beavers and white tailed deer!). Further into the islands you will see its serene park space as you cruise along Long Pond, a functioning race course at many times throughout the year.

At this point in the summer months we will make a brief stop at our dock on the island where you have the option of getting off and exploring the islands on foot for yourself. If you choose to get off simply come back and hop on any of our tour boats as they stop throughout the day.

If you choose to stay on board, the trip will resume right away, at which point we come back into the harbour and cruise along at the perfect vantage point to take the best picture of Toronto's skyline you can find. You will hear all about Toronto's famous buildings such as the CN tower, the Skydome, and our many skyscrapers. As the boat takes you eastward you will also see Toronto's functional industrial harbour, including a fully functioning sugar refinery. Finally as we head back you will see the eastern shore of Toronto’s waterfront where you will see the City ferry docks and some of the luxurious waterfront condos.

As we come back into our slip, you should have some great photos on your camera, and some great memories of your visit to our city!
