The only way to get to and from the Toronto Islands is by ferries operated by the City of Toronto, leaving from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, or private water taxis leaving from a separate dock. The Ferry Terminal is located in the heart of downtown Toronto and is very easy to get to.
There are three different pedestrian ferries that take visitors to three different locations: Ward’s Island, Centre Island, and Hanlan’s Point. The ferry ride is approximately 15 minutes. All the islands are connected to each other and visitors can walk or bike from one to another. You can bring your wheelchair, your bike, your pet (leashed), and your strollers on the ferry, but no cars allowed.
At this time, tickets can only be purchased online in advance, and are not available for sale at the ferry terminal.
What is the Ice Winter Schedule please?
Is the Hanlans Point ferry operating? The last two times I visited the islands this site told me the ferry was operating and when I got to terminal it was not.
The Hanlan’s Point ferry was not operating earlier in the summer due to high lake levels, but it has been back in operation since early August.
Are the ferries working for people living on the mainland and just want to go to the islands for a walk ???
Toronto Island Park is currently closed. Ferries are running to Ward’s Island only, for the residents who live there. The ferries to Centre Island and Hanlan’s Point are not operating.
Are the Toronto Islands currently open for the public?
Yes. With limited amenities.
Can a non resident ferry to Wards Island ? If not now, when. Thank You !
There is no residency check to board the ferry.
Can non-residents of Ward’s Island take the ferry there? In this comment section there are two conflicting replies.
Is this schedule correct during COVID?
Yes, the schedule has been updated to reflect the new times.
How do I cancel my tickets for tomorrow?
Is the ferry to Ward’s Island open on the weekend?
Why is the summer Hanlans ferry last trip back to city so early, when the spring and fall schedule show much later?
The spring schedule was never implemented due to COVID-19. The fall schedule here is from 2019 and will be revised at the appropriate time.
I want to go irland, I want to know that for return what’s the time come back up to 11 PM or 7 PM?
Why is the last ferry boat to the City from Hanlan’s Point so early. 4:15 pm is awfully early especially if one wants to have a BBQ or enjoy the clothing optional beach ? Wouldn’t it be too much to ask to have a last ferry boat departing Hanlan’s at around 7:30 or 8:30 pm ?
Hello, The schedules to the Toronto Islands are not clear after September 20. We will b in Toronto on September 26 and would like to go to Center or Ward Island. Can you tell us of the schedule for the 26th. Thank you, Gary Conrath

when does fall schedule 2020 begin

Can I go to the island?
Is there a certain age to take the ferry one without an adult
Once you have booked your ticket for a certain day, can you take the ferry to the island at any time during that day?
Can I refund a ticket that is not used? I accidentally purchased an extra adult ticket for tomorrow.
