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.

Buy Toronto Island Ferry Tickets

Unless you want to stand in a very, very long lineup at the Ferry Terminal, please purchase your tickets in advance, online.

  • As tickets are only required to travel to the island, the price is effectively for a round trip. Traveling from the island to the mainland does not require a ticket.
  • Tickets can be purchased with Visa, Mastercard, & American Express, with the addition of a cash option being available at the Ferry Terminal
  • Purchased tickets are valid for any day at any time until December 31 of the year they were purchased
  • Ticket prices:
    • Adult — $7.87
    • Youth (15-19) & Senior (over 65) — $5.16
    • Junior (2-14) — $3.80
    • Infant (under 2) — FREE
    • Monthly passes (only available at the Ferry Terminal, not online) are available for frequent travellers
