Here's Exactly When You Can Start Partying On The Toronto Islands This Summer

We know that winter feels like in just ended but summer is really just around the corner, it is May now after all. 

And of course with summer comes day trips around the city with all your friends, and one of those ideal locations is about to open for it’s full summer schedule later this month. 

That place would be the Toronto islands, where the ferry’s will switch from their spring schedules, to summer.

So, when exactly does this happen? 

And what does it mean if you’re looking to make a trip to the islands in the summer months? 

The change will happen on May 16th, and we all know that when the islands open that’s basically the start of summer in the city.

What this means is that the ferry’s will be running later and more often from the islands.  

For example, right now the ferry from the Hanlan’s Point dock on the islands stops running at 6:15 p.m. 

With the summer schedule that time extends all the way until 10:30 p.m. which is so much better for a day trip seeing as you won’t need to leave just because it’s getting dark.

The ferry’s will be running the summer schedule all the way until Sept. 10, so you have plenty of time to take advantage of the islands this summer.
