Ports

Kingston is a city located on the eastern end of Lake Ontario. The city has a long military history, the evidence of which is easily visible. Take a walk and visit Fort Henry, an old fortress that was first built in 1813 and later rebuilt in 1836. They have a sunset ceremony you must see. Also visit the beautiful Sydenham Street United Church built in 1856.

Toronto is an international centre of business, finance, art and culture. Toronto is also widely known as on of the most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
When you are here, why not take a trip from above the sea to under the sea and go visit Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. Or take a trip to Toronto Zoo and feed the animals there. And if the weather is not the best you can take a tour at Art Gallery of Ontario.
