Attention lake-lovers and sea-faring pooches! My humans found a great new dog-friendly activity for the whole family!

Docked directly behind the Harbourfront Centre building on the Toronto harbour, you will find the Tall Ship Kajama. (you can find a map link below). For this of you not from Toronto, Toronto Harbour is a bay on the north shore of Lake Ontario, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is a natural harbour, protected from Lake Ontario waves by the Toronto Islands.

Kajama is huge from my POV

So, when I say the whole family, I mean dogs too! Yup, the Tall Ship Kajama lets all us fur-balls aboard. So, this is one super cool play day that my humans and I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommended.

Although it is dog friendly, it is definitely more human friendly, if you know what I mean. During the 2 hour cruise, your humans can buy a wide range of reasonably-priced beer and wine as well as bar snacks and soft drinks. I asked about dog treats, but sadly their were none :(. They did have water for me, which saved me from having to jump overboard…I guess.

The cruise was 2 hours around Toronto harbour (30 minutes boarding and 1.5 hours sailing). My humans had a fantastic time and I was definitely the centre of attention! I found it really relaxing (I snoozed in the moments I wasn’t being adored), especially since the noise and vibration on a sailboat is minimal, and my humans said they enjoyed the view and atmosphere on the boat.

Tickets are $26.99 for adults, and pets go free! There is a group discount available for 20 people or more and sometimes there are also Groupon deals available (my humans felt the cost was worth what they paid). Cruises take place from May – October, but September was the perfect time for me – not too warm but still a lively crowd on the ship. I can’t wait to go again next summer!

I am always up for new adventures, so if there is somewhere you think I should check out, just let me know and maybe you will see your review in Blue’s Corner!

Also, bark out your comments, if you dare.
