One of the most important things we do at Mariposa Cruises is share the Toronto harbour cruise experience with young people. We traffic in shareable moments and set the stage for new friends to make foundational memories. Our staff aboard each of our unique ‘floating’ networking platforms strives to create the perfect place for young adults to start lifelong friendships. Cruising the busy harbour opposite the biggest city in Canada is thrilling at any age, and watching the shoreline grow more distant while being ensconced in the excitement aboard ship impacts young minds and empowers them to visualize infinite possibilities on their own horizons.

If only our boats could talk, the stories they could tell of couples who met and fell in love, young students who came on a class trip, a corporate milestone celebrated onboard…they could boast about hosting dignitaries, sports legends, Stanley Cups, celebrities & movie shoots. There are stories of birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, company events, proposals and weddings. There are stories from so many who came to us from all around the world and visited our city of Toronto. Over the last 30 years, our fleet has welcomed over 3 million guests and while our boats can’t speak, they do tell our story. (more…)

From industrial port to metropolis, Toronto’s harbour has come a long way.
If you haven’t visited Toronto’s Harbourfront in over a year, you’re in for a surprise. An extensive three year revitalization project (completed in June 2015) has transformed Toronto’s waterfront. Queen’s Quay West is now completely accessible by car, public transit, on foot or by bicycle, with lots of great public places to frequent and enjoy. Tourism is also up this year: Big events, a low Canadian dollar and really great weather have all contributed to an increase in visitors.
If you spend a day on Toronto’s waterfront, you’ll notice a multitude of activity on the lake. (more…)
