The Deal

  • C$16 for a 90-minute cruise aboard the tall ship Kajama for one (up to C$27.06 value)

Guests will board for 30 minutes on a restored 1930s schooner and embark on a 90-minute excursion on Lake Ontario, for a total time of 2 hours. During the tour, passengers can break from gazing at scenic views of the Toronto skyline to help deckhands raise and lower the sails or spin the helm, and the ship’s crew sets off a cannon to mark the middle of each tour. This Groupon is valid for one adult, child, or senior admission. View the departure schedule.

Great Lakes Schooner Company

The Kajama's white sails billow in the wind as its sharp prow cleaves the waters of Lake Ontario. The three-masted, gaff-rigged 164-foot schooner casts the same striking silhouette as it did 85 years ago during its first incarnation as a trade ship that sailed from Spain to Norway. Today, Great Lakes Schooner Company has restored the German-built schooner to its maiden-voyage splendour. Though they've preserved the boat's 1930s charm, they also retrofitted the Kajama for its daily tours with such amenities as a licensed bar and galley where cooks bring selections from their menu of pub fare to life. Additionally, the 96-foot three-mast Challenge boasts a full-service bar, and the 78-foot motor-yacht Obsession III — complete with spacious salon and retractable roof — provides public dinner cruises and private charters for almost 200 guests.

Customer Reviews

Great time. Crew was very friendly and helpful. We had two blind people with us. Crew took time to explain the running of a sail boat to them. Enjoyed the sea songs!!!

It was a really nice cruise, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Nice to be able to help with the raising of sails, hear the shanty songs and such. It's also really nice that they allow you to take snacks on the trip with you. Downside - The beer was ridiculously expensive, and the photograph they very quickly snap of you when you get on the boat is the one that is for sale later on the cruise - which in our case was a terrible photograph. Had they taken more time to produce a better quality photograph, I probably would've bought it, even though it was quite expensive as well. Overall, we had a lovely time, it was nice to explore the ship and enjoy the picturesque views of Toronto Harbor and the lake.
