different experience than anything else I've tried. Diane and Ted were
wonderful hosts. If you are visiting the Toronto area, I definitely
recommend for the personal and unique experience."
"It doesn't get better than this. Diane and Ted are such personable, caring, attentive and helpful people. You would be privileged to share their Boatel with them and come away with an experience of a lifetime! I had my tea each morning on the lower deck watching the CN Tower and the beautiful walkway and boats along the water. Feeling very grateful and blessed!"

"Diane and Captain Ted are great
hosts. I felt right at home immediately upon arrival. Boatel is in a
very convenient location to everything downtown. My cabin was cosy and
well-appointed. The common areas are very spacious and there are several
outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the views. Diane provided a variety of
great information about the area, local attractions and festivals. The
view of the Canada Day fireworks can't be beat."
"We felt welcome. Diane and Ted are most gracious hosts. The location is great, especially if going to a concert or a ball game at the Rogers Centre. Transit is very handy too. The Boat is clean and comfy. Will definitely make plans to stay again in the future."
