Ottawa Boat Cruise strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. We have invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that our boats are made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
How to book your tickets:
Ottawa Boat Cruise gives free access, to the companion of a disabled person aged 5 and older who requires assistance.
The closest parking would be the National Arts Centre parking (paid parking).
For access via the National Arts Centre, guests could get a car very close via this route shown below from Elgin Street and then along Lawrence Freiman Lane. Distance 400 m.
Alternatively, if you went by wheelchair from Elgin Street into the front entrance of the NAC, past the coffee shop and down the elevator, it will bring you out onto the upper terrace of Lawrence Freiman Lane from which you could travel down the ramp and connect to the canal lower terrace.
