Keep it Breazy on a Boat

These last few weeks in Ontario have seen record temperatures all around, and we’re melting away! Here’s an idea to beat the heat: chill out and relax with a cruise around our many wonderful lakes. With these boat tours, you can discover city skylines or remote backwoods, all by water!

1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises (E. Ont)

Mariposa Cruises & Toronto Harbour Tours (GTA)

Soak up some sun and explore a waterway that is drenched in history. The 1000 Islands and St. Lawrence are an essential part of Canadian heritage.

With a wide range of boats for both public and private touring, you’ll have your pick of how to see the bright lights of Toronto from Lake Ontario.

Lady Muskoka Cruises (Cent. Ont)

M.S. Kenora (N. Ont)

This 300-passenger vessel has full food and bar service, along with a play area for the kids. Relax with a cold beer and enjoy the famous cottage view!

Marvel at the rugged wilderness of the Canadian Shield from Lake of the Woods—Ontario’s second largest inland lake.

Whether it's a body of water in your own backyard, or a lake far away, boat cruises and tours in Ontario are the perfect way to cool down and enjoy the summer heat. For more great suggestions, visit our Boat & Train Excursions page.
