The Centre Island ferry is running again. The TIM Tender is now on the reduced Fall Schedule and runs hourly on weekends (on the hour to the island, on the :45 return).

TIM Tender

The preferred means to get to TISC is the Toronto Island Marina Tender. The dock is located at the foot of York Street, just east of 207 Queen’s Quay Terminal. It's just a short walk (or brisk run!) from Union station.

Board at the "Toronto Water Taxi" dock next to Sobey's, and take either the Island Mariner or P&P 1 (pictured below - note that the dock is shared with water taxis and other tenders/marinas)

Once you have arrived on the island keep to your right and follow the asphalt path right to our clubhouse.

Fees & Schedule

The tender runs every 30 or 60 minutes during the sailing season. The schedule changes at various times during the year. Follow the tender on Twitter, @TIMtender, for schedule changes and updates.

There is an one-way $7.00 (weekday) or $10.00 (weekend) fee* to take the Tender. TISC members are entitled to discounted bulk tickets (8 for $24*) or a Individual Season Pass ($170*) available at the Marina office. Visit the TIM website to see current pricing (* 2016 prices)

Centre Island Ferry

The Centre Island Ferry departs from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, located at at Bay & Queens Quay West. The entrance to the ferry terminal is on the south side of the street, just behind the Westin Harbour Castle hotel. 

Tickets can be purchased on site or online. Note that there is often a long wait on weekends.

Once you have arrived on the island, keep to your right and follow the asphalt path to to the Toronto Island Marina and keep following it to our clubhouse. The ferry back to the city is free.

TTC / GO Train


It's a short, 10 minute walk (or a shorter run!) from Union station to either the Tender dock (via York St.) or the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal (along Bay St.). 

Via LRT 

Take the 509 LRT from Union or Spadina subway stations. 

From Union station, the first stop Queen’s Quay, is closest to the the Jack Layton ferry terminal. Take the ferry to Centre Island.

The second LRT stop at Queens Quay Terminal207 Queens Quay West / Harbourfront Centre is closest to our Tender dock. The stops are usually announced.


There are a number of parking lots close to the tender dock/Harbourfront Center.  However, downtown parking is at a premium, especially if there's an event. Rates often increase when there's an event downtown, and are subject to change at any time without notice. And, parking lots have a tendency to turn into condos.

Some lots in the area include Harbourfront Center (north and south of Queens Quay), and underground parking off Bremner by the Air Canada Centre. Or try a website like to locate parking.

Note that several "popular" lots are now closed, including the Green P lot at Lakeshore and Bay St and the lot at York & Bremner. Did we mention that the TTC is only a 10 minute walk away?


The Martin Goodman trail along the waterfront takes you right to York Street (for the tender) or Bay Street (for the ferry). From the downtown core, use the bike lanes along Simcoe or Bay St.
