MEET THE CREW – Reservations Agent Anne Yetman

Meet-the-CrewAt Mariposa Cruises we strive to exceed expectations and provide our guests with the highest levels of quality and service. It’s what sets us apart from our competition and why we are recognized as Toronto’s best recreational cruise by Consumer Choice Award and voted one of the top attractions in Toronto by Trip Advisor. It would be impossible to achieve this without the dedication and hard work that each of our team members exemplifies. For this reason, we want to celebrate our team members and let you get to know them a little bit better.

This month we would like to introduce you to our Reservations Agent Anne Yetman.

Summer Sizzle – Date night on the Toronto Harbour

Mariposa Cruises’ guest Graeham Magee recounts his date night as a newlywed aboard the Captain Matthew Flinders for the Summer Sizzle Cruise on the Toronto Harbour.


Summer-Sizzle-Cruise-facebookCaptain Matthew Flinders sacrificed his freedom to become the first to circumnavigate Australia and discover it as a continent.

How to plan a Luau Party the Mariposa way

Hot summer weather is often a short-and-sweet memory for Canadians. That’s why it is so important to make the most out of our summer months. One of the best ways to celebrate great summer weather is by throwing a luau party.

We’ve hosted a number of luau themed parties and cruises over the years. It’s a favourite theme among many of our charters, not to mention we throw a pretty good Luau themed dinner cruise every August.

My significant other and I decided to toast to the end of summer with Mariposa’s Luau Cruise on the Toronto Harbour. It was the perfect night to say goodbye to summer and ring in September.

From the start, a beautiful luau dancer named Olivia, who placed lei’s around our necks, greeted us. My boyfriend was particularly thrilled by the idea and thoroughly enjoyed that experience.  (more…)

80s & 90s Retro Dinner Cruise

On a sunny and bright Friday evening, my girlfriend and I attended Mariposa Cruises’ Retro Dinner Cruise on the Toronto Harbour.
