Harbourfront Centre continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation regarding the COVID-19 virus. For the health and safety of all our staff and our volunteers, our patrons, supporters and the community, and in line with the advice and guidelines of Toronto Public Health, we will be closed to the public until further notice.
Our fleet is in great shape and has all the required safety equipment. We have a varied fleet of both sail and powerboats. We rent bareboat to the public with recognized credentials, or equivalent boating experience. Our smaller powerboats require safety training provided by our knowledgeable staff. Alternatively, for those without experience we can provide an instructor to sail or drive the boat for you.
For any rental which requires experience please fill out the Boating Resume form online.
How To Rent With Us
To rent a boat, you must be over 21 with a current driver’s license or over 18 with a Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC); our knowledgeable staff give a full safety briefing on all rentals. Ask our staff on how to obtain a PCOC.
