    Toronto Harbour/Islands Yacht Charters - 39 Foot Cabin Cruiser!

    James and Johnny were amazing hosts! I rented the yacht for my birthday party and it was the best day! We all had so much fun and felt that 3 hours was a perfect amount of time on the water. James had all the supplies on the boat as advertised (ice, cooler, cups, Bluetooth sound system etc) and there was plenty of space on the boat for 10 of us comfortably. I would definitely recommend this experience to others and hope to do it again next summer!
