Full description

Admire Toronto from the water and watch the city go by from your table on a harbor cruise. Step outside onto one of the outdoor observation decks to snap some pictures, take in the stunning views, and enjoy the fresh air. Select from three unique cruise and dining options.  Be greeted by the Captain and crew as you step aboard the boat at Queen's Quay West in downtown Toronto, where the ship's photographer will capture the moment. All vessels offer interior deck space with seating, outdoor strolling decks, dance floors, full-service bars, restrooms, and panoramic views.

Once on deck, your host will greet you and escort you to your table. Relax and admire unobstructed views of passing landmarks like the Harbourfront Centre, CN Tower, Sugar Beach, the Redpath Sugar Refinery, and the historic Gibraltar Point Lighthouse.

Savor a market-fresh buffet-style meal (either brunch, lunch or dinner) that is freshly prepared onboard daily. The dinner cruise includes music provided by an onboard DJ.

Enjoyed the cruise, although it was a bit chilly. That's the chance you take when you go in November! Make sure you dress appropriately and it's all good! Because it was November there weren't many guests, which was also good because we had a table to ourselves and there were no line ups for the brunch

Welcoming and friendly staff, fine regular dining. Tea and coffee are free of charge, any pops or alcohol drinks are listing on the drinking menu with a price. Food are homemade style, with acceptable taste. However we found the tour on water itself could be improved with some explanation or guidance lecture.

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
