Frequently Asked Questions

What if someone gets seasick easily?

The waters on Lake Ontario are generally light with only moderate waves during the summer. Relatively few people suffer from some sort of nausea while sailing Toronto waters.

The one part of sailing out of our control is the weather. Toronto has a very moderate climate with sub-tropical weather during the summer; rain is usually light and/or only temporary (20+/- minutes). We do offer a number of weather protection options to insure your investment is secure and your day on the water is perfect.

Like anywhere in the city, parking is a premium. We have a number of paid lots along the waterfront and have linked to the Waterfront BIA parking map so that you can spend less tme finding parking and more time relaxing on your private yacht with us! The attached link shows all of the public parking lots and parking garages at on the waterfront. Please also consider public transit, walking or cycling to get to Toronto’s Waterfront!

Sailing in Toronto is an outdoor activity! During your sailing experience you may be exposed to sun, wind and cool breezes. Be prepared and this will make your yacht charter much more enjoyable. We recommend wearing sunscreen and a hat. Additionally, we recommend having layered clothing; a base cool layer, warmer middle layer and waterproof outer layer. The temperature can be much cooler during a breeze and when the sun goes down. To enhance your Toronto sailing experience, all of our boats are barefoot only.

How big of a group can you handle?

Our yachts our licensed to carry between 8-12 guests. For larger groups, we use multiple yachts in a flotilla experience. We can service groups up to 90 guests.

We have a yacht friendly menu prepared fresh from our galley. Due to the variety of food requests, we offer catering as option to our standard charter. Our food service team includes cullinary students from the top Ontario schools and is something many guests rave about after their event. If you have a special request just ask.

Alcohol consumption is subject to Ontario Regulations. Our sail boats are licensed by AGCO and offer both beer & wine for purchase. Guests are permitted to consume beverages at all time while on our yachts.

I am continually amazed at the power of first experiences.

I cherish the opportuniies in seeing first time sailors embrace their experience. It’s a rare and beautiful thing to facilitate and share in someone else’s moment of awe.

I consider it a privilege to offer our experiences, to be a part of our guests’ first ‘wow’ moments while sailing. There’s something deeply fulfilling about watching the joy and surprise unfold as they discover its unique beauty and power.

I invite you to join my crew, to see the world through a new lens, and to rediscover the wonder of exploration.

Fair Winds,

Captain Howie Colt

YOUR SAFETY IS AT RISK

When considering chartering a yacht in Canada, we know you have many options. Some of these options look super exciting and at ridiculously great prices. Recent trends in the industry have opened the door for many unqualified individuals to purchase boats and offer charter services to the unsuspecting public. It’s easy to create a website and even easier to just list a boat on sites such as Facebook Marketplace, Kijiji, Getmyboat, Boat Setter and many others.

Unfortunately, many of these operators are NOT licensed, insured or qualified to accept your trust on the water.

In order to be licensed and insured a number of items MUST be in place. Listed are just a few.

  • The operator must be licensed by Transport Canada with a commercial license known as either:
    – Limited Master under 60tonne.
    – Small Vessel Operators Permit (SVOP).
  • The name of the vessel must be visible on the stern (back) or the registration number beginning with the letter “C” must be visible on the side of the vessel near the front. Boats with a registration number beginning with “ON” are not licensed for passengers.
  • If the vessel is under 12m (40’) it should participate in the Transport Canada Small Vessel Compliance Program and display a “Blue Decal” and have corresponding certificate.
  • If the vessel is over 12m (40’) or carries more than 12 passengers, it MUST BE INSPECTED by Transport Canada and have an inspection certificate on board.
  • All vessels must have commercial liability insurance and coverage specifically for the number of passengers approved to be carried on board.
  • The vessel must comply with commercial safety requirements beyond recreational standards. Many of these illegal operators do not have the proper training, carry proper safety equipment, nor do their recreational boats meet the design/construction requirements of a commercial, passenger carrying vessel. These illegal operators try to stay under the radar of Police/OPP/RCMP/Transport Canada by:
  • hiding the name of their vessel by hanging items over the stern
  • not letting you know where they will have you board until just before the start of your charter.
  • pick you up at a public park (where docking is not permitted).
  • suggest to you that you are friends of the owner/operator out for a ride and not a paying customer.
  • allow you to drink alcohol while the boat is underway (illegal-same as a car) but tell you to hide your bottles etc.
  • insist on a cash transaction or part of it as a way of defrauding the internet listing company.
  • Make you sign a “Charter Agreement” just before you board without giving you details of the document beforehand.

    Over the last few years there have been a number of deaths and even more accidents resulting from these types of operators. Be safe and know who you are getting on a boat with. All licensed operators should willingly display their credentials, and most are members of the Passenger & Commercial Vessel Association (PCVA).
