Took this tour on a Sunday morning. Boat was pleasantly quiet with good commentary and gave great views of the Toronto skyline. We got off at Central Island and had a lovely walk through the wooded and floral gardens. It was the end of the season but there were enough food and drink kiosks open at reasonable prices and plenty... More

The staff who manned the desk greeted us warmly & were very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour & the amazing Toronto skyline on such a beautiful sunny day. There was the opportunity to...

A great way to get some brilliant pictures of the city from a new perspective. Planes landing pass just, and I do mean just, over the boat. We cruised on a sunny afternoon with the windows open and basked in the relaxing harbour area. After downtown it was beautiful. Well worth the cost but great fun if you have the... More

Enjoyable informal tour of the harbour which included a trip across the water to centre Island where you could get off and return again later if you wished. Reasonably priced and gave a basic but informative description of the Toronto skyline.

The harbor tour was fantastic and a great way to capture pics of the city. The tour guide was hilarious with her off the beaten path humor and she was very knowledgeable about the history of the city, wildlife etc. My wife and I had a great time!!

Reasonably priced for a 45 mins tour of the harbour with opportunities to take photographs and get off at Centre Island if you want. The "guide" we had was very informative with a great sense of humour.

We didn't have a lot of time to explore during our stay in Toronto, so decided this day trip would be a great way to fit in a couple stops. Our tour guide was very charming and funny, the wine tasting was fabulous, the falls were stunning and the trip on the Hornblower was an unforgettable experience. Niagara-on-the-Lake was quaint...

While we were skeptical at first, we were quickly proven wrong. The guide was great, very informative and entertaining! And the ride around the islands was beautiful and a really nice way to spend an hour and see an area of Toronto I normally wouldn't. Lots of great photo opportunities of the skyline as well. I highly recommend this tour!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
