I’ve taken you aboard the Hamilton Harbour Queen and the Hamilton Waterfront Trolley this summer – now it’s time to take a ride on the Hamiltonian Tour Boat!

This local gem is a 12-passenger boat which began operations in 2003. Open daily for tours throughout the summer, grab a ticket and hop on for about a 45-minute ride around the scenic Hamilton Harbour. Along the way the captain points out interesting facts and sights, recounting the harbour’s history.

There are so many contrasting views from the boat, all of which make up our unique city. Spanning nature, recreation, and industrial facets of Hamilton, you will see the canal connecting to Cootes Paradise, Royal Botanical Gardens, Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, part of the Canadian National Railway, the Hamilton skyline, Stelco, Skyway Bridge, HMCS Haida, and more.

It’s a relaxing and enjoyable ride to kick back and feel so close to the water and the gorgeous sights of nature. Wave hello to rowers out practicing or to spectators watching from the shores of Pier 8.

All aboard!
