Important Ferry Information:

Your Wanderlust 108 Ticket does NOT include a ferry ticket. We recommend you pre-purchase your ferry ticket here. You MUST have a printed copy of your pre-purchased ticket to board the ferry. Those without printed ferry tickets will be required to re-purchase at the ticket booth at the ferry docks. Pre-purchased ferry tickets will only be valid between 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM on Saturday June 27 2015. We will not be able to accommodate refunds for forgotten tickets or pre-purchased ferry tickets presented after 10:30AM.

The Jack Layton Ferry Terminal is located at 9 Queen’s Quay West, Toronto, Ontario, M5J 2H3. You’ll find the ferries at the foot of Bay Street at Queen’s Quay West, just west of the Westin Harbour Castle hotel. Enter the Ferry Terminal via the walkway between the Westin Harbour Castle hotel and the Harbour Castle condominiums.

Normal travel time by ferry to and from the Toronto Islands is about 15 minutes in each direction. We recommend taking the 9 or 9:30 am ferries. The arrival time of these ferries will give you plenty of time to check your bags and participate in the pre-run festivities before your “mindful triathlon” officially starts.

On Saturday, the high in Toronto is expected to be 19° C, with a low of 15° C, and there is a chance of rain and wind. Bring your hoodie or a light jacket and a raincoat. The triathlon will go on rain or shine. If there is lightning we’ll postpone until we have been in the clear for 30 minutes.
