Designed for both tourists and locals alike, a cruise around Toronto’s waterways is the perfect way to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. View the Vibe has got all the deets on why you should celebrate life in the 6ix with a cruise around the lake.
As Toronto’s largest hospitality cruise option, featuring 6 vessels including the Northern Spirit, Mariposa Cruises has a boat that fits your needs. From mid-sized charm and comfort, to a more intimate cruise with a touch of class, the possibilities are endless. The Northern Spirit is recommended for larger groups because it boasts 140ft and three spacious decks, while Rosemary, the 64ft yacht is perfect for hosting your more exclusive social functions.
All 6 vessels are serviced and Coast Guard Certified, keeping your safety a top priority. The cruises have been voted one of the top attractions in Toronto, and have been recognized as one of Ontario’s Best Touring Experiences. Just remember to bring your sea-legs because that Toronto wind can kick up the occasional swell.
Choose from a variety of different menus aboard Mariposa Cruises including lunch, dinner, cocktail hour, and weekend brunch. Whether you’re celebrating one of the many milestones of life, or just unwinding with colleagues after a long work week, enjoy a meal alongside the iconic Toronto skyline. Each vessel is equipped with buffet-style meals prepared fresh (or an appetizer menu for their Sip & Sail Cocktail Cruises), and fully-licensed cash bars.
Mariposa Cruises also offer a number of themed menus, ranging from holidays such as Thanksgiving and New Years to upcoming seasonal options like Fall Colours and Winter Wonderland. For a better look at what each menu offers, click here.
One of the major selling points of Mariposa Cruises is the fantastic view of Toronto’s iconic architecture that we’ve grown to know and love. By day, you’ve got yourself a scenic view of Toronto Island, buzzing and full of life. And by night, the sky opens up to award you with an unmatched scene of sparkling lights. For those of you who are new to the city, it’s a great way to check out all that the 6ix has to offer, while Toronto residents can enjoy experiencing their home from a different vantage point.
Mariposa Cruises are designed to be fun and relaxing for everyone. We’re talking weekend brunch with the entire family, or dinner dates with that special someone in your life. The vibe onboard is extremely welcoming and accommodating, and standing on the deck of a ship cruising around Lake Ontario just can’t be beat.
