What you'll do

No one else in Ottawa offers this. June 6 to Sept 27, 2020, every Sat & Sun, 2PM and 4PM departures, weather permitting, only 10 spaces per tour. We'll meet at the Port de Plaisance Jacques-Cartier, east of the Alexandria Bridge, Quebec side. Look for the yacht with a red canvas top. Bottled water available as needed. A glass of wine is offered. Alcohol may be consumed on Quebec side of river. You may bring your own beverages and/or snacks. The ride will be gentle to give you ample time to enjoy the scenery and sights. Ottawa you’ll discover looks spectacular from the river. We’ll navigate the Ottawa River, under various bridges, past marinas, and see the Parliament Buildings, Rideau Canal locks, Chateau Laurier, Museum of History, Prime Minister’s Residence, Rideau Falls, Rockcliffe Park, and blvd Jacques Cartier… before returning to the Port. Life jackets are on board but not normally worn. Stand or sit in the back stern (with the captain), or sit on the front bow and dangle your feet over the edge while holding onto your drink and the railing - the view and ride are amazing both ways. Two departure times: 2:00PM, or 4:00PM. Duration: approx 1hr-30min. Instagram: @OttawaYacht; Facebook: facebook.com/OttawaYacht.

I’ve lived in Ottawa for 36 years, and navigated the Ottawa river in the heart of downtown Ottawa for 6 years. I’m fluent in English, et en français, mature, responsible, and eager to give you an exiting tour on my yacht. I have had an Ontario boating licence for 6+ years.
