No Place Like Ottawa – Boat Tour

Tickets may still be available directly through the cruise website.

See a side of Ottawa that most people never see.

The best way to see the national capital region since 1936!

This Ottawa River cruise offers the finest views along the River with departure from the Ottawa Dock, located at the foot of the Ottawa Locks and Chateau Laurier Hotel, this 1.5 hour tour is the most thorough tour available on the water.

The Paula D is ideal for an excursion. You will have the opportunity to see the beautiful landscape of Ottawa while relaxing and enjoying a nice cold beverage (cash bar) on the large upper deck. The lower deck features a canteen and bar (with permission to sell alcohol).

The cruise offers a spectacular view of the city and allows you to see the river as it was used long ago: as a highway to transport resources. You will also see the natural beauty of the region that captured the imagination of the first European explorer: Samuel de Champlain.

Bring sunscreen and dress appropriate to the weather.
