Ports

Windsor, Canada, is a city in the province of Ontario, on the banks of Detroit River. It’s the southernmost city of Canada. Take a stroll down the waterfront to admire local art and the skyline of Detroit, on the opposite bank of the river. Grab something to eat in one of the many place of Olde Walkerville Neighborhood and don’t forge the Dieppe Gardens. For culture enthusiasts there are many museums and galleries.

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.
