We have used the ferry on previous trips and although there are plenty of quicker water taxis, we used the ferry again. It cost under 16 dollars return for two which is good value. The ferry takes about 20 mins to cross and run frequently...More
We went out by one route and returned by another. A great way to see the island and some good views of Toronto on the way out. Not expensive and frequent service. Can get very busy, but there is plenty of room on-board.
I used the ferry during Festival of India. It was quite the crowd especially when returning from the island. It is hard to follow the queues, but they are pretty meticulous in watching the numbers to ensure a safe trip. Good experience.
Prompt, reasonably-priced and clean, the ferries depart regularly for one of the three stops on the Toronto Islands. You can easily walk from one island to the other so it’s easy to take the ferry to one stop and return from another. Return fare was...More
Great way to get a return trip to Toronto Island and all for under $8 return.
We were down at the waterfront early in the day and bought tickets to be used later on. So glad we did as the queue to buy tickets was...More
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.

The island and the ferries are open all year long as people actually live there. The bicycle rentals, restaurants, the amusement park etc close at the end of September. It is a beautiful, free (except the ferry fare) to visit at anytime of the year and look back and view the city of Toronto from another angle.

Yes, there are several snack bars and restaurants on the Toronto Islands. At Hanlan's Point, there is a snackbar at the dock and also the Mermaid Cafe, near the beaches and tennis courts. Both serve hot dogs, sandwiches, soft drinks and a variey of beers. There is are a couple of snack bars on Centre Island, as well, including a Shopsy's Deli stand. On Ward's Island, there is a slightly more formal restaurant called The Rectory. The Queen City Yacht Club has a fine restaurant at its facility on Ward's Island, but I believe you must be a club member or guest of a club member to dine there.
