What you can expect
June 6 to Sept 27, 2020, every Sat & Sun, weather permitting, only 10 spaces. 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 as needed. A glass of wine is offered. Alcohol may be consumed on Quebec side of river. You may bring your own drinks 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/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 times available: 2:00PM, or 4:00PM. Duration: approx 1hr-30min.
