What people are saying about Harbourfront Centre

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 170 reviews

Booking was very smooth and easy and you can cancel the day before for a full refund which is great especially that the weather sometimes is unpredictable. The boat itself is a good size and cruise is about two hours - very clean and the servers are very nice and professional - the food is good and it’s an open buffet style with salads, veggies , rice and fish & chicken and dessert, coffee & tea. You can go as many times as you want - they also take your picture and you can purchase it at the end of the cruise

The food was great, seating was comfortable, experience overall very good. The only negative was confusion over exchanging voucher for ticket per instructions - no one ever showed up at the dockside kiosk, even after calling upon arrival to confirm. Staff on the ship figured it out but could have been smoother.

An excellent option to get to know Toronto at your own pace. It gives you an overview of the main places and attractions in the city. A totally walkable route with good footwear.

We actually ended up doing the island tour because the downtown tour was cancelled. Our guide Terrance was amazing.

Great views, great food and great staff! Lovely cruise, only wish it was a little longer.
