I boarded Mariposa's Northern Spirit ship the for a themed dinner and sail party. The company has a legion of flotillas, six in total, and in varying sizes to accommodate large or intimate parties.

There's a shadow over the Oshawa Harbour as well, a darkness and a rot. Oshawa is the only city on the Great Lakes with no boat access to the water.

Waterkeepers do the work that we do to help people like you -- so you can turn on your tap, catch a fish, or plunge into the lake without fear. Our rules are simple: It should never matter how polluted your community already is. It should never matter what kind of economic clout you wield. It should never matter how many political allies you have. Lake Ontario is yours, too.
