Toronto Boat Cruises - About Us

Mac and Carolynne Makarchuk have been successfully operating Toronto boat cruises since 1984. They commissioned the Aurora Borealis in 1983 from a boat builder in the Port of Nanticoke. Always civic minded and conscious of helping those less fortunate than themselves, the Makarchuk's chose the Port of Nanticoke in part because jobs in the area were scarce then and a high percentage of skilled labour was unemployed. During the 1.5 years that it took to construct the Aurora Borealis, many skilled Canadians enjoyed gainful employment. The Aurora Borealis arrived in Toronto in 1984, and since then she has been operating private charter, public, and shared Toronto boat cruises on Lake Ontario. The Makarchuks have done many fund raising events for local charities aboard the Aurora Borealis in support of the community and that glorious tradition will continue.

Although the Aurora Borealis is still owned by Mac and Carolynne Makarchuk, the marketing is now under the purview of 416-CRUISES. The Aurora Borealis underwent minor renovations last year, with more to come prior to the start of the 2009 season. She will be shipshape before the first guest arrives. We look forward to welcoming you onboard one of the Aurora Borealis' spectacular Toronto boat cruises. With elegant and luxurious amenities including heating, air conditioning in the main dining room, beautifully appointed washrooms, fully equipped kitchen, and a sky dome style retractable roof and panoramic windows on the upper deck, the Aurora Borealis is an excellent vessel for entertaining. Her spacious surroundings can accommodate up to 235 guests. She is available for corporate events and personal functions in addition to public and shared Toronto boat cruises for festivals and special events, and regularly scheduled sailings.

This season book a private charter or buy a ticket on one of the Aurora Borealis' public cruises. The 416-CRUISES staff looks forward to welcoming you aboard.
