cntower_flindersFollowing a summer of record high temperatures and booming tourism in Toronto, Mariposa Cruises looks forward to an exciting new season of Fall Cruising. Like New York and Chicago, cruising in Toronto continues right through to our popular New Year’s Eve Gala Cruise on December 31st.

Autumn is a wonderful time to cruise Toronto’s Harbour. The days get shorter and evening falls sooner.  Dinner Cruises at this time of year are the best time to experience the spectacular harbour lights. Canadians love to get behind the wheel and drive around the countryside at this time of year to take in the spectacular fall colors and the crisp autumn scented air.  But if busy Toronto life doesn’t afford you a chance to escape, don’t worry—the best views are from the water, anyway.  It’s so easy to climb aboard a Mariposa vessel from the foot of Toronto’s downtown core, and enjoy a few hours of scenic dining and breathtaking fall foliage.


Brunch Cruises are available every weekend throughout September, and every Sunday between October 1st and December 18th. Dinner Cruises are a truly unique experience in the autumn, with scheduled sailings available through to December

This autumn we have plenty of cruise opportunities on the Harbour.  Get onboard this Thanksgiving weekend with a special Thanksgiving Brunch Cruise on October 9. Perfect for out-of-town guest entertaining or when you want someone else to do the cooking and clean-up while you relax.  We’ve teamed up with our friends at Steam Whistle Brewery once again for an Oktoberfest Dinner Cruise on October 8th, featuring a Bavarian feast, floating beer garden and lots of Oktoberfest fun.  Read our guest experience from 2015  for a look at last’s year’s Oktoberfest Cruise.



Private Events get a break this fall with special cruise packages.  Whether you’re planning a corporate event or private function we special packages for groups between 20 and 500 guests when they book a cruise any weekday or weekend afternoon by October 31st.

Featuring flavorful seasonal dishes like cumin scented eggplant with cilantro and pomegranate, glazed autumn root vegetables, seasonal soups and warm apple cider, our Bountiful Harvest Autumn Package lets you design your own menu.  Choose from a delicious array of starters, main courses, sides and desserts for your private event–all at a great low price.  Our Fall Colors Special offers a choice of two mains—Carving of Cherry Glazed Roast Pork or our traditional AAA Roast Beef Carving stations, starting at only $46.95 per person.

It may seem far off, but the time to start planning for holiday parties is now.   Make your Holiday Party a magical evening your guests will always remember.  Our Holiday Season Cruise Packages include all you need for the perfect celebration.
