Showboat in Toronto

See the CN Tower from the boat


The CN Tower is one of Toronto's most famous attractions. It is the tallest building in Canada and towers over all the surrounding skyscrapers by many meters. When driving through the city, it can be seen from many places. But best of all, as we discovered during our stay in Toronto, you can see it from a boat, or from the offshore islands of Lake Ontario, which can only be reached by ferry from the Toronto Docks. Three of the tour tours, of which you the CN Tower From the boat, we want to introduce you here:

 

The Oriole in the Port of Toronto

Boat trips from the Toronto Docks

At our Stroll along the waterfront of Toronto We see very different boats at the docks of Toronto on Queens Quay: among them are elegant yachts like the Capt. Matthew Flinders, the Mariposa Belle sternwheeler, the smaller tour boat Rosemary, the showboat that reminds us of boats cruising the Mississippi, or the Oriole, which also resembles the riverboats in the American South.

All of these boats include Mariposa Cruises, which offers several excursion cruises: Brunch Cruises, Lunch Cruises and Dinner Cruises, always with food and great views from the lake back to downtown Toronto and the CN Tower. Which ship is used depends on the number of passengers. You ask the best, if you buy the tickets, which boat does the tour.

  A sailing trip on Lake Ontario from the Toronto Docks

A few steps further along the waterfront, past the restaurants on Queens Quay, is a tall ship at the pier: the Kajama. It's something special, with a three-master, which looks particularly impressive when the sails are taut, crossing Lake Ontario. It feels a bit like going back in time when seafaring was still a real adventure.

The tall ship cruises on the lake for one and a half hours and offers great views of the city center and the tower of Toronto. A great experience!

By ferry to the Toronto Islands

We do not have time for a boat trip with one of the historic ships during our stay in Toronto. Instead, an event will take place during our Travel Blogger Conference on Center Island, which, as the name suggests, is on the middle island of Ontario Lake. We can get there by ferry, which runs at regular intervals between the Toronto Docks (near the Westin Hotel) and the islands.

Since we spend a long time on the island and take a walk there, we enjoy different views of the city center and the CN Tower. A cheap and nice way to see Toronto from the lake.

Which of the three trips is the most beautiful? That's hard to say, they're all different. But they all have one thing in common: a wonderful view of downtown Toronto and the perfect view of the CN Tower.
