It’ always exciting and a pleasure to pick up guests landslide and bring them across to the Island. Here are the directions.
I have a slip at the Toronto Island Marina. To get to the Island you can take a TIM Tender or I can pick you up, and drop you back, at the little inlet (boardwalk ) the just behind 65 Harbour Square along the edge of the water. In which case you don’t need to take the Toronto Island Ferry or TIM Tender to the island.
Parking along the waterfront can be a hassle so typically people take the TTC Subway or GoTransit and get off at Union Station and walk one block west along Front Street then turn left on York Street and walk (about 7 min) south. You will cross Queens Quay W Street and wait just behind 65 Harbour Square at the edge of the water.
These Google Maps should help with directions–it’s easy.
PLEASE be on time at the pick-up spot! Ideally, show up 15 minutes earlier. The challenge is that I can’t actually tie my boat to the dock and wait for you. If you’re late I’ll have to keep circling around to avoid busy boat traffic until you arrive.
Prior to hopping aboard, I will slowly motor up to the water’s edge, come to a full stop, hop off the boat and dock it safely using my body weight and a few lines. At that point it’s safe and easy for you to hop aboard.
