All of Mariposa’s boats are docked around the building at 207 Queen’s Quay West at intersection of York Street and Queen’s Quay West.

Unexpected traffic delays can occur in the GTA at any time, so please give yourself ample time to arrive. There is pleasant indoor space in the stunning Queens Quay Terminal Building if you arrive before boarding time. We regret that we may not be able to hold the ship for latecomers for our dining and sightseeing programs where other ticket holders are anticipating a scheduled departure time.

All of our vessels are docked on the east and south sides of the Queens Quay Terminal building at 207 Queens Quay West (at the foot of York). Facing the water from the street, our six boats are docked on the left side of the building (Rosemary, Klancy and Captain Matthew Flinders, and directly behind the building, Northern Spirit, Showboat, Oriole.
