Surf, Turf, & Sail

Foodies on Foot and Gone Sailing Adventures have teamed up to bring you Toronto’s best private sailing experience and foodie feast. We promise not to go all Gilligan’s Island on this 3+ hour tour. Join us for 2 distinct foodie adventures as we view the city in a way seldom seen by most, on a private yacht.

On August 12, join us for an interactive experience as you learn to sail, or, if you prefer, to just sit back and go for the ride. We depart at 7:00 PM and return around 10:00 PM. You can do as much, or as little, as you like, as Captain Howie takes you through a sailing 101 and you learn what it takes to sail a private yacht. After we learn to sail, we will set anchor and indulge in a delicious feast curated by yours truly, featuring some of our favourite food in Toronto.

Join us on this delicious foodie experience. Tickets are $125 plus HST for the Learn to Sail and $150 plus HST for the Full Moon Cruise, and, include sailing on a private yacht (maximum 12 people), a sailing lesson, food, and non-alcoholic beverages.

Kiss and Def Leppard

Two of the hardest rocking bands, Kiss and Def Leppard, are not shy when it comes to rocking out.
Kiss can really pack a punch with their hard driving music “I Love It Loud,” “Rock and Roll All Nite,” and
“Lick It Up.” Pyrotechnics are a nice scorching touch to their shows. They have been entertaining audiences
since the seventies and there doesn’t to be any stopping this band!

Since “Photograph” and “Rock of Ages” Def Leppard have remained a mainstay in the world of rock. They have gone on to produce such classics as “Love Bites” and the audacious “Pure Some Sugar on Me.”

It’s fun, educational, and a great way to spend the day indoors – not to mention it’s free for everyone!”

Blue Rodeo

Alt-country darlings Blue Rodeo are a gem from the Great White North. They have never let up since they released
that unparallelled classic in “Try.” “Diamond Mine” was a stellar hit which kept them on the same trajectory.
“Lost Together” was hauntingly beautiful. Their music resonates with all age groups as it is both warm and contemplative. Vocalists Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are two of the best Canada ever produced.
