Toronto Island boathouse

Besides biking and walking, another good way to explore the Toronto Islands is by human-powered boats! A nice thing to do on a summer day is rent a canoe, pedal boat or kayak and have a leisurely paddle to explore the peaceful lagoon and open waters.

The Toronto Island lagoon is a great habitat for aquatic life, and over 35 species of fish have been identified. If you're lucky, you may see turtles, herons and nesting swans.

You'll find blue-painted Boat House rental along the lagoon, just east of the formal garden promenade as you walk from the Centre Island ferry dock in the direction of the beach.

Canoes can take up to three adults or two adults and two children. You can rent either single or double kayak.

If you're thinking of renting a boat, try to get there early in the day to get your pick of boats.

Canoes and single kayaks are $29 for one hour, $74 for three, including HST. Tandem kayaks are $37 the first hour.
