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…)
My name is Kyle Larkin, and over the course over the summer I’m going to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the work the officers of Mariposa put in throughout they year as we gear up for another action-packed season!

When a coworker mentioned a recent date night she and her fiancé had had out on the Toronto Harbour, it piqued my interest. A three hour tour, complete with dinner, drinks and dancing sounded like the perfect way for my boyfriend and me to celebrate our two year anniversary. (more…)
Whether it’s due to plans falling through or rainy weather, it seems that I never get a chance to see fireworks on Canada Day weekend. So when I had the opportunity to book Mariposa Cruises’ Fireworks Cocktail Cruise, I jumped all over it. (more…)
An evening we will cherish in our hearts for a while was our 6th anniversary on the Oriole. It began with a warm greeting at the dock, which by the way is an entertaining district all on its own. Having arrived a bit early, afforded us the luxury of wandering the area and taking in the full atmosphere of the waterfront – which is kind of a happening scene! The ship itself was a charming sight. It reminded me of a classic steam boat, with its rustic, nostalgic appearance. I adore anything historical, so my eyes darted all over the vessel imagining each corners story or past. (more…)
I was recently invited aboard Mariposa Cruises’ the Oriole to test out their new Toronto Harbour Tour app during a Scenic Harbour Tour. The free interactive app is the first of it’s kind in Toronto and provides an easy to follow narration as you tour all the wonderful sites the Toronto harbour has to offer.
I love this app for many reasons!
After a long day at work, you can find me doing one of two things:
1. Snuggling up in my onesie watching The Bachelorette.
2. Catching up with girlfriends over a glass of wine.
With the official start of summer just around the corner, I figured it was time for a change and invited my best friend to Mariposa Cruises’ Sip and Sail Cocktail Cruise.
