Toronto Dinner Cruises - 2016
Public dinner cruises are made up of individuals and small groups who would like to cruise, but do not want the expense of a private charter. It is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the views of Toronto's Harbourfront and islands.
The following dates have been scheduled for the 2016 season. All cruises take place on Yankee Lady III moored at 259 Queens Quay West (behind the Radisson Admiral Hotel/Police Unit) unless otherwise stated.
"On behalf of my group that attended the boat cruise Saturday night, we would like to say THANK YOU. Rain and all we had a fantastic and memorable night. Thanks for your help reserving the tables for us, we had a fantastic night."
Reservations required; Please note we add 15% gratuity and 13% HST to all ticket pricing. For more information or to book, call 416-868-0000 or email email@example.com

Frequently asked questions about our Public Dinner Cruises
As many of our guests have never cruised before, we thought we would answer many of the questions that we often hear.
Are our tickets refundable?
Tickets once purchased are non-refundable. However,if you decide at least 48 hours prior to your cruise that you would like to change dates, we may certainly do that for you. There will be a surcharge of $10.00 per ticket. If you are unable to make your cruise you may certainly give your tickets to another person.
What if the weather forecast calls for rain?
We cruise rain or shine. There have been very few occasions over the last 30 years that have stopped us from cruising. If we were to cancel a cruise for any reason, we would be in touch and let you know.
Is there reserved seating?
Yes. However,from time to time, there will be no reserved seating. This will be indicated on the website under the description of the cruise. Reserved seating means you will have your own table for the meal. Please note there is no seating which we would call "intimate" if you are seeking a secluded corner for two!
Is there food?
Yes, with every cruise we provide a meal. Details are listed on this website. In general we provide one of our popular buffets. They are not "all you can eat" buffets; we serve one healthy portion per person. You will be provided with a meal ticket upon boarding the ship.
How should we dress?
One should dress as one prefers; we suggest smart casual. While our ships are carpeted, we suggest ladies wear practical footwear (not 5 inch stilettos) Perhaps a sweater or jacket for cooler evening breezes would be beneficial.
Are children allowed?
Yes. Some boat companies do not allow children. We do, but some cruises are not children oriented (e.g. late night), while others are (daytime). We'll tell you if we think a particular cruise is not appropriate. Children's rates will be noted.
Are your ships wheelchair accessible?
Yes and no. While our gangways are tailored to allow wheelchairs access to the ship, our washrooms and other decks are accessible only via stairways. See our page on accessibility.
Do you have group rates?
We do not offer group rates for our open dinner cruises. However, if your group is over 30 people, you may wish to consider a private charter. Please see our cruise packages for some great deals.
What if I miss the boat?
If you arrive late and the boat has left, you may call the water taxi service to bring you to the ship. We suggest you give yourselves plenty of time to get downtown and find a parking space.
May we make special requests?
If you are celebrating a Birthday, anniversary or other special event, you may certainly call the office to inquire about prepurchasing a cake, a bottle of wine, balloons, etc. We would be happy to assist!
Are reservations necessary?
To cruise on one of our open cruises, it is necessary for you to prepurchase your tickets in advance. Tickets may not be purchased at the dock as we have food based on the number of tickets sold.
Are we allowed to smoke on board?
As of January 1, 2015, there will be no smoking on any open public cruises. On private parties, it will be up to the discretion of the charterer whether smoking will be allowed on the outside, uncovered decks. The new law pertaining to outside patios is a provincial law for bars and restaurants. We are considered neither by the AGCO, and we are federally regulated.
