Where will we go on the Boat?

Depending on the length of the tour, we like to cross the harbor and take a leisurely cruise through the picturesque channels of the Toronto Islands. From there we leave the harbor, head towards Ontario Place and out into Lake Ontario. As we re-enter the harbor, you will enjoy unique views of the city skyline. If the seas are too rough, we will not subject our guest to the swells, and we’ll stay in the sheltered harbor (where there is still plenty to explore). While onboard, please consult with us  for the best options.

What should we bring?

First of all, a great attitude is required before getting on board. Remember that you’re about to head out for a few hours with great friends in a unique setting. In addition, consider bringing along the essentials listed below:


  • sunglasses
  • beverages of your choice (preferably in cans, they cool faster and don’t tip over as easy)
  • snacks
  • cups, plates, napkins and cutlery
  • ice and a cooler to put it all in

Temperatures are usually a few degrees cooler on the water than on shore, so dress appropriately. If you do feel chilled or hot, the cabin below is heated/air conditioned and offers respite from the outdoors. ​Temperatures on Lake Ontario are very unpredictable. While the temperature at the dock might be 28 degrees celsius, two miles offshore it could be in the low 20’s. This is especially true in May and September. Soft soled shoes, such as tennis shoes or deck shoes are extremely important. Hard soled shoes will scratch and leave displeasing marks on the boat deck that are hard to remove.

If anyone in your group is prone to sea sickness, it may be a good idea to bring anti-nausea medication.

For those who would like to go for a swim, remember to bring a swimsuit.

Is fridge available on the yacht? So I could stock my beverages!

Yes.  We do but its small. We always recommend to bring your own cooler as well. So that you can move it and store all your drinks at one place only.
