Toronto Islands Tour

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

Come row with us from the Hanlan Boat Club to the Toronto Islands for a BBQ/Picnic with a beautiful view of the city.  If the weather cooperates and we get going early we may be able to row around the outside of the islands, but otherwise we head for the sheltered inside routes.  Either way, it is always a popular and well attended tour.  We always have a safety boat in attendance to make sure all goes well, and to carry provisions.  Water and juices are provided but feel free to bring additional beverages if desired.  The safety boat will transport them to the BBQ.  The tour usually sells out so please submit your registration as soon as possible.  If you have any food allergies please let us know and we will attempt to accommodate.  If your club is not a member of OAR there is an additional $10 registration fee ($55 total).

  • 9:45 am      –     Leave dock and travel out to the islands to assess route
