We went on the 7:30 sunset cruise in order to see Toronto during the day and at night. This was the perfect time to do this! The staff was friendly and fun. The ship didn't exactly "sail" and that was a bit of a disappointment. The views were fantastic and being out on the water was delightful! It got cooler... More

Hi ctwaternut – Thank you for providing TripAdvisor with this helpful review and we are pleased that you had a fun time aboard Kajama. We just wanted to note that Kajama does sail whenever weather permits, which is everytime time arrrrrr, it just sometimes may not feel like it due solely to the sheer size of the vessel. Thanks again... More

I had a groupon for this attraction so I decided to take my friend as a graduation gift. We went on a cool day. On day it was nice, but on the boat it was very windy and cold so make sure you take a light jacket in case. I was looking forward to the crew singing songs but the... More

Hi Missy Y – Thank you for taking the time to provide a thoughtful review on TripAdvisor. We are happy you enjoyed the cruise even though we unfortunately did not meet all your expectations. Kajama offers an alternative to a guided-tour, but typically our crew is more than pleased to answer any questions regarding the sights and the ship and... More

I took my mother here for a delayed mother's day gift. She enjoyed it just because it was a tall ship. I found it kind of boring. Last year we were on a different tall ship and they sang, and got more passenger participation. This ship was just interested in getting you on board and making you spend more money... More

We bought a groupon and our whole family(grandparents, kids and grand kids) went on the 530 pm trip. It was wonderful. The service was great. The food was yummy pub food. The pirate song, the cannon shot and the raising of the sails were nice touches. It was a quiet trip--no tour--that allowed us to enjoy the sights and the... More

We joined one of the night cruises - House of Dust's Full Moon Midnight sail party on July 12. This was an amazing experience! about 200 ppl dressed up in pirate and other costumes, dancing for trance-house-kinda music, sailing under the full moon, enjoying the fantastic night view of Toronto! the experience was phenomenal! Strongly recommend to try this adventure... More

Hi SS and AD – We are so happy you enjoyed the House of Dust’s Full Moon Midnight Sail onboard Kajama. This cruise is hosted by a client and is always a crowd favorite, and sell-out, for all the reasons you listed! Toronto by night is simply breathtaking and those views can be enjoyed on all our popular evening cruises... More

We purchased these tickets on Groupon and saved quite a bit of money. It was a nice day and the boat ride was real nice. It was a fun thing to do while in Toronto. We took family that was visiting from Alberta for the day. They have food and drinks on the boat. It was expensive. There are seats... More

I got a groupon deal online for a 2-hour cruise on the Kajama. I booked this cruise because my special needs son made a wish for a ship, so I saw this deal and thought it would be fabulous to take him for a ride on a real ship. I even made reservations at a downtown hotel so we could... More

Hi Buffoll – We are truly sorry that Kajama was not available for the day you had thoughtfully planned with your son aboard a “Pirate’s Ship”. It is correct that we do rent out the Tall Ship Kajama for private functions on occasion; however, we do also clearly indicate, on our online booking page and ticket, when the 96’ Challenge... More

A very relaxing way to spend a summer day! Views are incredible and I truly felt I was on a mini-holiday while sipping my wine and taking it all in! The crew seems to love their "summer gig" and it shows - very friendly and always checking to make sure everyone was being looked after. What I also particularly enjoyed... More

We took our preschooler and infant son and we all had a good time. I would suggest getting in queue earlier than the boarding time to get a seat, and especially if you have a stroller you need to park on board. We didn't do that, but people were very kind to offer up their seat. The food was a... More

We purchased four tickets for this cruise on Groupon and saved a good amount. Definitely get the discount tickets. We took our ride on Canada Day, so the area was quite busy, but there was more to do in the area while we waited for our time to board. The schooner ride was slower than we expected, but it was...
