Additional Information

Embark on a 2-hour nautical journey, exploring the harbour and proceeding to the lake via the west channel. Keep an eye out for the world’s shortest commercial ferry. There’s also an underwater pedestrian tunnel linking both sides for those in a rush to catch their plane.

True lovers of sailing will appreciate the stirring winds and gentle waves of Humber Bay and Lake Ontario. Most weekday evenings offer a spectacular display of local sailing club races.

Sailing to the south of Toronto Islands, we traverse the Eastern Gap, showing you the thriving community of roughly 260 homes occupied all year long. Don’t miss the sight of summer cruise ships docked in the port, journeying from Quebec City via the St. Lawrence Seaway to Green Bay, Wisconsin on Lake Superior.

Our course culminates along the Toronto shoreline, featuring urban beaches like Sugar and HTO Park, waterfront condos and hotels, Toronto’s marine fire station, and the iconic CN Tower.

Magical! - The crew was wildly over-qualified and regaled us with fantastic stories of sailing the world. They had blankets for my daughter when she got cold and made my motion-sick mom comfortable in the back of the boat where it's less bumpy. Definitely follow all the instructions they give you in the emails leading up to your trip.

I will do future trips with Gone Sailing Adventures when I go back to Toronto. - There were awesome views of the water and skyline. JC and Donna were the crew, these folks made you feel like family that you like to share time with. I cannot say anything negative, the whole experience was enjoyable and worth the money.

Excellent sailing experience - The shared sailing experience was excellent. The captain and crew member were very accommodating and knowledgeable about the cruise and surrounding Toronto waterfront area. Friendly staff, on sail drink options, and a safe environment made for elevated experience with the Gone Sailing Adventures Luxury Yacht Charters company. Looking forward to enjoying another sail soon!

Incredible experience - The crew was super kind and the view was amazing. The best part was when we sat sit in front of the boat with comfy blankets, playing our own music with the bluetooth speaker as we watched the sunset - truly unforgettable and a must-do in Toronto. I wish we had a bit more privacy/space though as we were often interrupted to be offered drinks (even though we stated we did not want any) or take photos that we did not really ask for. I told JC who gracefully took the feedback. I would still recommend anyway
