Another throwback post to Toronto! Now, I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE Groupon for fun activities to do in new (or re-visited) cities. They can also be a lot of fun for locals who want to try something new and interesting, but don't want to invest too much into the activity.
For Toronto, we met up with a friend from Korea, who lived in Vancouver, and moved to Toronto (and is now back in Vancouver again) who we try to see regularly. She is always down for just about anything new, so we took a tall-mast boat tour of the Toronto harbor!
The price was pretty decent ($15 or so per person), the tour lasted an hour, and they had music, fun activities, food and drinks available for purchase, and some great views of the Toronto skyline. There are sunset tours, and a dinner tour available as well, but this basic tour is the cheapest option available.
I don't know if they have any more groupons offered, but the website for the company is http://www.tallshipcruisestoronto.com/ and its a great way to feel like a pirate for an hour!
|Thar she blows! The beautiful ship in the Toronto harbor|
|View of the CN Tower from the boat dock-or maybe the boat? I don't remember|
|How pretty is this boat?|
|View of the skyline, not far out|
|That's better, right? A nice view of the Toronto skyline, early afternoon|
|Don't forget that Toronto has an island!|
|The weather got a little grey and windy away from the protected harbor|
|A little bit of fog, but no rain|
|A vanity shot of the CN tower. She looks so pretty!|
