Staycation in Ontario

There isn’t a better time to enjoy the hidden gems of Ontario

Even as Ontario begins to re-open, restrictions remain on international travel and vacations. After more than 15 months of lockdowns, social distancing and a lack of events or attractions for families, the travel bug is itching to be scratched! It’s the ideal time to get out and discover what Ontario has to offer.

City Cruises in Canada operates three boat tour operations in the Niagara River and on Lake Ontario:

  • Niagara Falls — Consistently rated as one of Canada’s top visitor experiences, the Niagara City Cruises Voyage to the Falls is an iconic adventure. Get deep in the mist and hear the thunderous roar of the Niagara River as it comes crashing down over the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. This tour gets you as close to the Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls and Horseshoe Falls as you can safely get.

  • Toronto — Play tourist and get a view of Toronto unlike any other. Come on board for a few hours of unbeatable Toronto views and culinary excellence. Whether you’re looking for dinner, brunch, or drinks, you’ll enjoy first-class service, fresh air, and can soak up the sights and sounds of the city’s waterfront. With market-fresh ingredients and stunning views of Toronto’s iconic skyline, a dinner or brunch cruise in the harbour is a special dining experience. Take a 45-minute picturesque cruise through the inner harbour and Toronto Island Lagoons with the striking Toronto skyline as your backdrop. Or escape the routine after-work ritual with the Sights & Sips Cruise featuring music, a fully licensed cash bar and a menu of delicious appetizers.

  • Gananoque — The point where Lake Ontario empties into the St. Lawrence River is a unique archipelago known as the 1000 Islands. Take a one-hour tour through the narrow channels of the Admiralty and Navy group of islands and see cottages that have been in the same family for up to six generations. Or you could relive the danger of sailing the Great Lakes with the Lost Ships of the 1000 Islands Cruise that brings events and stories back to life.

“These tours at each location is a memorable experience,” says Mr. DiMaurizio. “Together, they’re an excellent package of what makes Ontario a great place to live and visit. As the economy begins to re-open, there has never been a better time to see what we have in our own backyards.”
