      Private Unique 32' Big Beautiful Mark Twain Boat In Toronto - Can have 8-10 persons and Sleep Up To 6 Person!!!

      I rented the boat for my birthday and invited 4 of my girlfriends. We had an incredible time. The captain was incredibly polite and prior to meeting him, he was very response and communicative, always replying and answering my questions. We stopped over at centre island and had a BBQ! We were able to enjoy the beautiful city view; with its city lights lit up at night, it was breathtaking!
