You can't beat seeing the sun set on Toronto's skyline.

There’s something special about Toronto in the summertime. The patios are buzzing, there are loads of activities to participate in and locals and tourists alike are all too happy to soak up those precious few months of hot weather. It’s also the best time to take full advantage of being next to Lake Ontario and getting out on the water and seeing Toronto’s impressive skyline from a different angle.

The rooftop of the boat is where live music happens and it's the best spot for Instagram-worthy moments.

To get the ultimate Toronto summer experience book yourself on one of Mariposa’s Sip n’ Sail harbor cruises around the Toronto islands and the shoreline of the city. Picture sipping on a cool cocktail (we’re thinking a classic gimlet will do the trick) and nibbling on summer-esque mini lobster rolls, gorgonzola stuffed dates, creamy artichoke dip and sweets while the sun sets on the city. Throw in live music (on the night we attended we were treated to east coast tunes) and you not only have the perfect Instagram moments of Toronto but you’ll also have the best Periscope opportunities too.

Finish off your cruise with a fully lit-up city.
