About Empire Sandy

Tall Ship Empire Sandy Events is a Toronto-based tall ship that specializes in hosting beautiful weddings and special events along the picturesque Toronto harbour. With more than 30 years of experience celebrating weddings on the ship, they are well versed in customizing your special day so your waterfront wedding will be stress-free and wonderful.

Facilities and capacity

At 200 feet overall and 11,000 square feet of sail, the Empire Sandy offers the unique experience of sailing aboard an authentic Tall Ship. Sails are hoisted as the ship departs and the wind is harnessed to propel the 740 ton Empire Sandy along Toronto’s scenic waterfront.

The Empire Sandy is Transport Canada certified to carry up to 275 passengers and can comfortably seat 160 guests below decks. There is nothing in the world that compares with standing on the deck of a Tall Ship, a warm breeze on your face under a canopy of stars and billowing white canvas.
