Seeing Toronto and the Islands at night adds a whole new twist to a beautiful city. Only minro downside was the boat is inclosed and one couple decided to stand infront of the only non window (windows are slightly curved so not perfect for taking photos) impaired space and take photos all trip. Not allowing anyone else a chance and the crew said nothing.

I love the Toronto Islands. I grew up exploring them and still enjoy wondering amongst the parks as well as the old houses in Wards Island. These cottages were build starting in 1867 and when the city tried to take them back in the 1960s some of the community fought to stay. Today the tiny cottages are restored and painted colourfully and the vibrant residents live there year round. There is a small school for the kids - what an idyllic life they must have! There are no cars on the islands and it's the largest car free zone in North America. You can get to the islands via a ferry, then travel around on foot, bike or rollerblade. There's still an amusement park for the kids and some hints of the grand events that once took place. Babe Ruth even hit his first professional home run here in 1914 when a baseball stadium was located at the site of the current Toronto Island Airport. Be sure to visit the beaches, the pier and the communities on Wards and Algonquin Islands. Take a picnic and some friends and I guarantee you'll enjoy yourself.

This was cancelled, took the morning harbour cruise instead. Well spent hour on the Inner Harbour with spectacular views of the Toronto skyline. If you've time at your disposal, hop off on one of the islands and have a wander.
