Start your day by cruising the rideau Canal. The Rideau Canal cruises will take you back to 1812 when the plan for the construction of the canal was introduced!
The Rideau Canal is a chain of beautiful lakes, rivers and canals winding 202 km from Kingston, at the head of Lake Ontario, to Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.
Our cruises will let you discover the wonderful Rideau Canal, from Dow’s lake to the Ottawa River. Be surprised by the richness and historical landmarks that will offer our cruise!
In 2016, Rideau Canal Cruises began offering sightseeing cruises on the popular Rideau Canal. Visitors can discover the region, its history and rich cultural heritage while cruising on board a brand new electric vessel.
Our North America’s largest 100% electric passenger vessel is the only one of its kind.
As part of the great Ottawa Boat Cruise family, we have over 30 years of navigation experience on the different waterways of the region. Our experienced team will answer your questions and ensure your safety during your trip.
Then, Haunted Walk Ottawa will share some of their favourite ghost stories from the area and lead you by lantern light to haunted spots.
Finish your day by exploring the stories of an evolving city and its residents from the early days of Bytown to present-day Ottawa with Bytown Museum.
