Holiday & Christmas Parties

Whether you are planning your office holiday party, a pre-Christmas celebration with friends or are looking for a unique holiday season excursion with your family, Mariposa Cruises selection of holiday season packages, special events and festive holiday party cruises offer the perfect yuletide backdrop to your holiday merriment.

Discover a majestic winter wonderland when you come aboard with Mariposa Cruises this holiday season. There’s something magical about cruising the Toronto Harbour in winter and rediscovering the city after she has been blanketed in snow or adorned in ice. Nothing quite compares to seeing the magnificent Toronto skyline lit up like a Christmas tree as you cruise along the Toronto Harbour at night.

Our ready-made holiday party packages look after all the details for you, complete with festive holiday party décor, full-buffet menu and DJ. Choose between hosting a private holiday party with our Winter Wonderland packages (lunch or dinner) or have us tailor a holiday party specific to your needs. You can also come aboard our regular Holiday Dinner Cruises,  Santa Cruises, Santa Brunch cruise or ring in the New Year aboard our New Year’s Eve Gala cruise.


Our Winter Fleet

Mariposa Cruises operates two vessels during the winter months, the Captain Matthew Flinders and the Northern Spirit. Both cruise ships offer warm, spacious interiors perfect for entertaining large groups and functions and can accommodate for over 300 guests each. Each vessel is fully heated and equipped with full sound systems, full service kitchens (galleys), fully stocked bars and is tastefully appointed with festive holiday décor to accommodate all of your holiday party needs. Our award-winning catering and hospitality is unmatched on the Toronto Harbour. Coupled with the distinctive Toronto city views – a holiday season cruise is an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
