THE NEW WAY TO TiKi
RELAXING WATER TAXI
Tiki Taxi is excited to announce a brand new way to travel to the Toronto Islands. Instead of a direct trip over to the islands, you will enjoy the long route over. Stop for photos, learn about the history of the islands, and see Toronto from a new perspective.
Each hour-long Private Taxi ride will drop you off at your choice of Centre Island, Hanlan's Point, or Ward's Island. This will allow you to experience the things on the Islands your captain tells you about on the ride over.
Complimentary return tickets will be given to each Private Taxi rider, valid for a return from Centre Island or Hanlan's Point. If you would like to return from Ward's Island, return tickets may be purchased at a discounted rate of $10 per person (applied at checkout).
The Toronto Islands are a special place for many, including our Tiki Taxi Captains. Each has spent years working, living, (or both), on the Islands. Along your ride, your captain will entertain you with historical and personal stories about the Islands. Private Taxi is a unique experience in the Toronto Harbour, offering quality time on the water and the chance to have a first-hand experience on the Islands for yourself.
Named after the Hanlan family, the Western-most point of the Toronto Islands is home to beautiful parkland, a clothing-optional beach (and a clothing-mandatory one), and the location of Babe Ruth's first home-run! Along your journey you'll pass Billy Bishop Airport, the oldest existing lighthouse on the Great Lakes, and also the Island Yacht Club. Stop for a photo in Blockhouse Bay to get a great view of the skyline before being dropped off at the Hanlan's Point ferry dock.
Centre Island is home to many activities on the islands. Grab a bite to eat at The Upper Deck or Toronto Island BBQ & Beer Co., rent a bike to cycle through the islands, or visit Centreville amusement park. You can also rent kayaks and canoes on Centre Island and walk through the gardens on the way to the Centre Island beach. Look over Lake Ontario from the pier and experience the most happening destination on the Islands.
North America's largest automobile-free community can be found on Ward's Island and Algonquin Island. There are a total of 262 houses and 675 Torontonians who call the Islands their year-round home. You'll be able to stroll through the community and admire the beautiful houses and gardens. Grab a bite to eat at The Riviera or Island Cafe, and you can even visit Toronto island SUP for a paddleboarding adventure.
