My friend (a Toronto local) and myself (tourist) took this trip and both enjoyed it! It's a great way to see some of the city from a different angle as well as soak up some tall ship atmosphere helping to raise the sails... crew were good. Overall good value for money - we'd both go again!

It is my first and I loved it, I love my TO and love ships. If you have a chance it's a wonderful experience, they let you participate in stuff. There's actually a place to order food and drinks including alcoholic drinks.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city like Toronto and enjoy the wind in your face, the sun on your back and a glass of Chardonnay in your hand, then do try the Tallship Cruises at Toronto Harborfront. Enjoy the spectacular views from aboard a traditional Tall Ship Kajama or Cruise Ship... More

I thought I would give my two sons the experience of a Tall Ship cruise. We enjoyed it, however we were disappointed that 'the captain' did not introduce himself nor explain the history of the various sights around Lake Ontario to make it more interesting. They had fun helping put the mast up!

We purchased 4 vouchers from Groupon that were expiring at the end of Sept. We booked to take friends that same week. Unfortunately, it was raining and very windy so we called to see if we could receive a credit for the following season. A hard no with no option but to use them because we had already registered.

I went on the Kajama cruise to bring my sister out for her birthday. We really enjoyed ourselves. We were able to sit around and enjoy the beautiful Toronto skyline. The one negative thing I almost had experienced there quickly turned around. We had ordered food and it hadn't come out for almost an hour. But they quickly came over... More

Bought tickets from Groupon and it was well worth the price. Even without the discounted price I would say this is a great way to enjoy the Toronto Harbour/Waterfront area. The staff was friendly and entertaining, the drinks affordable. Loved the firing of the mini cannon. Really great time.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
