Welcome to Making Waves Boatel

Boatel = Boat + Hotel

CLOSED FOR THE WINTER – Re-opening June 1, 2015

Book now for 2015 June 1 to October 31, 2015

There are many hotels in Toronto but there’s only one Boatel. Often described as the most unique bed and breakfast in Toronto, the Boatel offers a great family vacation holiday, a romantic weekend getaway, or a refreshing change for business travelers. Wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and enjoy gourmet breakfast aboard your own private yacht, surrounded by a postcard view of downtown Toronto and the harbour. Please have a look at our photo gallery.

Wherever you are on Making Waves Boatel you will definitely have the enjoyment of relaxation, sunning and watching the sights around you in the comfort of this floating hotel at Toronto’s most sought after waterside location. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you feel relaxed and your troubles easy away. You will almost forget you are in downtown Toronto because the waterfront with its walking path and Music Garden is an oasis in the city, and the boatel is docked in the heart of it.

The boatel, featured on, is the closest bed and breakfast to the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, and the new Ripley’s Aquarium, so sightseeing is a breeze.  Visit the many attractions, and enjoy shopping and great restaurants – all a short walking distance away. Or, if you prefer, hop on the streetcar to Union Station for full access to city transit or TTC.

Our business travelers love the easy access by train from Union Station or via the Billy Bishop Island Airport with direct flights by Porter Airlines to many Canadian and US cities. Business travelers can book the whole boat for business meetings or enjoy easy access to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for conference travel. Why stay at a conference hotel when you can stay at our boatel?

Important: Making Waves Boatel remains dockside during your stay as you enjoy the access to downtown Toronto’s harbourfront. We would be happy to make arrangements for an afternoon or evening dinner cruise aboard one of the cruise boats in the harbour.

Languages spoken: English and French

We offer gay-friendly bed and breakfast accommodations.
