About Mariposa Cruises

Proudly operating since 1987, Mariposa Cruises is Toronto’s largest hospitality cruise operator with a fleet of six uniquely-styled and well-maintained vessels. Offering Toronto’s most comprehensive cruise schedule, Mariposa Cruises hosts private events, sightseeing tours, public Brunch, Lunch and Dinner Cruises, as well as Sip & Sail and signature special event cruises on Toronto’s waterfront. Our commitment to creating quality guest experiences has remained consistent with thousands of events and millions of happy guests later. Our team are friendly, focused professionals who are passionate about the guest experience and their part in making it so.

In August 2018, Mariposa Cruises was acquired by leading US Cruise operator Entertainment Cruises, the nation’s largest dining and sightseeing cruise company with a fleet of 53 ships in cities that include: Alexandria, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Gananoque, National Harbor, MD, Norfolk, VA, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, D.C. and Weehawken, NJ. Entertainment Cruises’ expansion into Canada includes Mariposa Cruises in Toronto  and Gananoque Boat Line on the St. Lawrence River.  

Our shared commitment to extraordinary experiences and relentless focus on quality is a great cultural and commercial fit for our business. We continue to operate under the Mariposa Cruises brand and remain headquartered at our home base in the heart of the Toronto Harbourfront at the Queen’s Quay Terminal Building.
