Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with this Groupon.
$69 for a Two-Hour Mini-Powerboat Rental ($155.94 Value)
The most accessible craft in Harbourfront Centre's rentable fleet, the Paradise F13 requires no prior boating experience. The sleek craft seats two adults, and fuel is included so that aquatic explorers can fully tour Toronto's waterfront. Boaters must carry a cell phone at all times so that the centre can reach them if needed.
In a natural wharf provided by the Toronto Islands, Harbourfront Centre offers avenues to a world of unbroken horizons and wave-splashed winds. Along with education and licensing services and boat rentals, the knowledgeable navigators curate special events, such as a swashbuckling Tall Ships festival for Canada Day and annual voyages to prove the harbour is round.
Power- or sail-boaters with appropriate licensing and a completist's perspective on panoramas might pursue membership for multiple voyages. With rental options for all experience levels for power- or sail-boats and even yachts, Harbourfront Centre Sailing and Powerboating provides a sense of freedom otherwise accessible only to boat owners and their boats' wise-cracking GPS systems.
