Toronto Islands and Ferry Service Are Reopening

Prior to using the ferry, every visitor must do the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19 and if they do not pass the assessment, they should not board the ferry. Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will be undertaken on the vessels after every trip.
