The City of Toronto resumed its public ferry service to Toronto Island Park, as permitted by Transport Canada.
The ferries will operate at 50 per cent maximum capacity, with a number of COVID-19 guidelines and procedures in place to protect passengers and staff, developed in consultation with Toronto Public Health.
Visitors should purchase their tickets ahead of time. Tickets are only valid for the date selected at the time of purchase. Additional staff will be on hand at the ferry terminal to assist visitors with these new requirements.
Passengers will be required to wear non-medical masks or face coverings. Signage and markers will be visible at the terminal to help visitors with physical distancing while waiting in line. To reduce crowding, visitors are encouraged to travel outside of peak times.
The busiest time for travel from the terminal to Toronto Island Park is between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., and between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. for the return trip. Visitors should plan their ferry trips outside of these times.
Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will be undertaken on the vessels after every trip. Washrooms on the ferries will be closed, however hand sanitizer dispensers will be available. Washrooms at the terminal and at Toronto Island Park will be open.
Visitors should self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and should not board the ferry if they have symptoms.
