What you'll do
No one else in Ottawa offers this. Four times a year only, exclusive on these summer holidays: June 24, July 1, Aug 3, & Sept 7, only 10 spaces. per tour. This tour books full and early, if interested, don't delay. Weather permitting. We'll meet at the Port de Plaisance Jacques-Cartier, east of the Alexandria Bridge, Quebec side, and next to Portage Champlain Yacht Club. Look for the yacht with a red canvas top. Bottled water available. 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 and marinas, and see Ottawa sites, then anchor by Upper Duck Island. A catered lunch will be served with some of the Ottawa's best deli sandwiches and platter food - you won't be disappointed. You'll be able to dip in the river at a sand bar. We'll then make our way back 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 and dangle your feet over the edge while holding onto your drink and the railing - the view & ride are amazing both ways. Departure time: 11AM. Duration: 4 hrs. Instagram: @OttawaYacht; Facebook: facebook.com/OttawaYacht
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.
