Boating in Toronto Harbour

Ferries, kayaks, frigates, sailboats, canoes and even fireboats have sailed around Toronto Harbour for hundreds of years. Prestigious yacht clubs have ensured the gentrification of boating in Toronto, but community boat clubs continue to teach the public to sail safely for a reasonable price, enabling all Torontonians to enjoy a day on the water. Ferries compete with water taxis; sailboats jockey for position with kayaks and rowing shells – summer in Toronto would not be the same without boats in the Harbour.
