The Pleasure Craft Operator Card grants boaters of power-driven vessels to steer freely through the waters.

Harbourfront Centre Sailing and Powerboating
A performance by avant-garde musician Philip Glass; pottery and glass-blowing workshops; year-round boat rentals—though eclectic, all of these things are regularly scheduled at Harbourfront Centre. Perched along a 10-acre stretch of waterfront, Harbourfront Centre sets the stage for live music, dance recitals, family-friendly programmes, and boating. In providing such a wealth of activities, the non-profit organization seeks to celebrate a variety of cultures while helping visitors artistically express themselves through photography, dance, or creating self-portraits out of sailors’ knots.
