"Visitors can walk the gangway to search the nooks and crannies of the port, bow, starboard and stern. Visitors can learn the history and secrets of each ship, meet the Captain, and discover everything there is to know about the world on the water, all on a guided tour - offered subject to availability. Visitors can participate in a free boat ride with HCSP or slide and bounce the day away in HTO Park East on an inflatable Pirate ship! The Toronto Fire and Marine Station 334 or Police Marine Unit will be open to help visitors gain a better understanding of water safety related to leisure activites. Visitors can also have their picture taken with the roaming pirates who might just have a sword duel, and if brave enough, a piece of treasure could be theirs!"
HTO Beach also had a giant blow up pirate ship that the kids could play on.

Construction of the Queens Quay roadway continues to mess up the area and construction is not supposed to finish in time for the Pan Am games, but it is getting close and the streetcars are back on the tracks.
