Mariposa Cruises has hosted private charters of all kinds. Our charming ships are first class venues, tastefully decorated, fully licensed, have full-service kitchens/galleys with a dedicated culinary team, indoor and outdoor promenade decks, dance floors, CD/MP3 sound systems, and are versatile and spacious enough to accommodate groups and functions from 20 – 575 patrons.
While most private charters apply for an entire vessel, we can also charter an individual deck for smaller parties and functions.
From theme parties and birthdays to Bar/Bat-Mitzvahs and anniversaries, private charters can be truly spectacular with Mariposa Cruises. We offer special group rates and discounts, full catering services, a wide range of menu options, and an extensive libation list that includes beer, wine, spirits and specialty cocktails. Mariposa Cruises also provides audio-visual equipment, podiums and microphones. Professional DJs are included in on all of our private charters. We can recommend many entertainment options for your function, from hired entertainers to Indoor Games and casinos; as well as provide assistance with services ranging from themed events to decor and flower arrangements.
Best of all our ships are located in the heart of downtown Toronto with easy highway access, plenty of parking, 5 nearby major hotels, TTC service and a short walking distance from Union Station, CN Tower, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre and many other Toronto attractions.
“I will definitely cruise with Mariposa Cruises again in the future. Throwing a 300 guest party seemed hectic, but my guests had an excellent time and everyone could not stop talking about the night. It was an amazing experience and I will definitely be back soon.Thank you Mariposa cruises and the Northern Spirit staff for throwing an amazing engagement party for my 300 guests!! We absolutely loved our experience and I would do it all over again.”

“Thank you and all of the crew at Mariposa Cruises for our surprise birthday party for one of our partners. We had such a wonderful time and such a great experience on the Rosemary. The size was perfect for our party and very comfortable. Our firm has never had a boat cruise outing and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The crew took very good care of all of us and were extremely attentive to our requests. What a great experience. Thanks again for everything!”

“The cruise exceeded my expectation, The boat was very roomy and had 3 levels that we could enjoy, the food was excellent, the crew was great and took very good care of all of us. And the sunset and the city view is the one that could be only experienced from the water. The party was great and my daughter will remember her birthday for the rest of her life.”

“What a huge success!! Just wanted to extend my thank yous to everyone at Mariposa Cruises for making my parents 50th Anniversary party a great event. I cannot begin to express what a real gem Konul was. She was more than 110%. I truly know I would not have gotten through it without her. Not to mention the rest of the staff as well as your attentiveness leading up to this. All of our guests did not know what to expect and truly appreciated how it all came together. They were totally comfortable, enjoyed the ride and the hospitality. Thank you again and I look forward to recommending Mariposa Cruises to my family and friends.”
