A 1968 photograph of Joel Dombrowski shows him as a small boy, peering over a guardrail at Niagara Falls. Awestruck by the crashing waters, he looks as if he's trying to taste the mist. Exciting that sense of wonder in others would later become his profession. Today, Joel escorts first-timers through Niagara Falls State Park as a popular tour guide. He draws upon his training in journalism, experience as a standup comedian, and a lifetime obsession with history to share the story of the park with wit and elegance. For more than 10 years, his approach⎯merging stray historical facts with compelling anecdotes and comical accounts of waterfall lore⎯has made experiencing the Niagara landscape doubly memorable for his tour companions.

During all four seasons, The team at Toronto Adventures smuggle urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley and Copeland Forest, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron.

Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail. Toronto Adventures also offers adventure bus trips, dogsledding, stand up paddleboarding, hiking, and sailing.

Lovingly recreated to emulate the riverboats that paddled along Lake Ontario in years past, Jubilee Queen's eponymous ship first wet its hull in 1986. More than two decades' worth of rays have since bathed the sweeping sun deck, which sits above a dining room lined with linen-covered tables. In the galley, the Queen's chefs whip up dishes suitable for any event, from full-course meals to buffets peppered with international cuisine, all of which are prepared fresh in a fully equipped kitchen onboard. In the cabin, a fully stocked bar keep guests' sea legs limber as they dance to the tunes of a live DJ amid views of the Toronto skyline and the distant shadow of the lighthouse haunted by the spirits of burnt-out bulbs.
