All Aboard

by Bill Delingat

Fall has just arrived with the first ‘Full Harvest Moon” in over 20 years; this tops off a record breaking heatwave that occurred across Canada and a summer with lots of events and excitement for locals and tourists alike in Toronto, Ontario.

One of the jewels of our city is our Harbourfront, the Islands and the boating, from sailboats, tall ships to the ever popular day tours: Toronto has them all.

One of the most popular is the Mariposa Cruises, the jewels of our harbourfront. Mariposa Cruises (Lines) was incorporated in 1987,with the purchase of The Mariposa Belle, adding it to the beginning fleet of The Rosemary. Canadian owned and operated, Mariposa Cruises next acquired the spectacular Captain Matthew Flinders and sailed her from Australia to Toronto in 1989. In the early 90’s- The Showboat,Tthe Northern Spirit and The Oriole were all added to Mariposa’s current fleet of six uniquely styled and well maintained vessels. Stability, quality, customer service and excellence are the foundations of Mariposa Cruises - the leader in the hospitality cruise industry.


When it comes to parties or events on the water “Get Invited” an online event planner is # 1 on the “high seas”. This year “Get Invited” celebrated it’s 46th cruise with Mariposa Cruises, holding a record of over the past 20 years with a June and an August party cruise.

The owner and creator of “Get Invited.ca”, Joel Gusto is no newcomer to the marketing world; he is the man behind the first “electric beach” in Canada, “Sunbanque Island Tanning”. Gusto says “I started the boat cruise around the islands for promotional purposes, but over the years it’s become the private party on the lake It’s a great way to get away from the city for an afternoon, and a chance to meet new and interesting people.”
