“Wonderful ”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

It is lots of fun to go on this ferry ride. Only problem is the long waiting lines and the ferry gets packed really fast. We enjoy taking pictures from inside the ferry because of the scenic Toronto landscape. The ferry ride to Centre Island and back is fun for the whole family.

“Great views of the Toronto skyline”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

The ferry service is a cheap and pretty basic service to the Toronto Islands, used as much by locals as tourists.

The view of the Toronto skyline from the ferry is worth the modest fare on its own. Try to time your trip back at dusk for sone stunning views of the CN Tower and Rogers Centre lit up.

The islands themselves also have some reasonable attractions and beaches, so it is worth spending some time exploring the islands themselves.

“One of the better attractions in Toronto”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Let's face it folks, while Toronto is a lovely city, there really isn't too much to see or do there for tourists. Wondering around the major attractions takes a day at most, and if you have the time, the Toronto Islands are certainly worth a visit. It's a great day out, away from the city,

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Firstly, the Islands were far more worth the trip than I imagined after reading about them in guidebooks!! The ferry service was good and efficient. The views of downtown Toronto were incredible and I would have paid the fare just to get the million photos that I took!!

“Good views of city”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Nice little ferry service through Toronto's Islands in Lake Ontario. The ferry stops are seasonal. Great views of city especially CN tower with the top in the clouds. Very simple on board but staff are friendly.
