What you'll do

No one else in Ottawa offers this. June 6 to Sept 27, 2020, every Sat & Sun evening, weather permitting, only 10 spaces per tour. We'll meet at the Port de Plaisance Jacques-Cartier, east of the Alexandria Bridge, Quebec side, & next to Portage Champlain Yacht Club. 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 & sights. You’ll discover a spectacular view on the river, especially during & after sunset. We’ll navigate the Ottawa River, under bridges, past marinas, and see the lit-up Parliament Buildings, Rideau Canal locks, Chateau Laurier, Museum of History, Rideau Falls, Rockcliffe Park, and blvd Jacques Cartier before returning to the Port. Life jackets are on board but not normally worn/needed. Stand or sit in the back stern (with the captain), or sit on the front bow & dangle your feet over the edge while holding onto your drink & the railing - the view & ride are amazing both ways. June 6-July 19, 7:30PM to 9:30PM. July 25-Aug 9, 7:15PM to 9:15PM. Aug 15-Aug 23, 6:45PM to 8:45PM. Aug 29-Sept 13, 6:15PM-8:15PM. Sept 19-Sept 27, 5:30PM-7:30PM. Duration: approx 2hrs.

I am the captain and owner of a 36’ long and 12’ wide SeaRay Sundancer yacht that is in immaculate condition. 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.
