Toronto Islands and Ferry Service Are Reopening
The City of Toronto is resuming limited ferry service to the Islands starting this Saturday June 27. The ferry service has implemented a number of COVID-19 precautions, developed in consultation with Toronto Public Health, to protect passengers and staff.
• Ferries will operate at 50% maximum capacity.
• Ferry tickets will be limited to 5,000 per day.
• Tickets must be purchased online at www.toronto.ca/ferry (no tickets at gate).
• Passengers will be required to wear non-medical masks or face coverings.
• Visitors are encouraged to travel at off peak times (avoid 9:30am-12pm, 3:30-6:30pm).
• Washrooms on the ferries will be closed (Island washrooms will be open).
• Hand sanitizer dispensers will be available.
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.
Services and amenities that will be open at Toronto Island Park once ferry service resumes include washrooms, splash pads, a first aid station, Franklin Gardens, William Meany Maze, some food and beverage outlets and disc golf.
Other Toronto Island Park public and commercial amenities on the Island including Centreville Amusement Park, park playgrounds and boat rentals will remain closed as required by current Province of Ontario emergency orders. Prior to this reopening, ferry service was still provided to Wards Island for Island residents only.
