What you'll do

THIS TOUR MAY HAVE RESTRICTIONS DUE TO COVID.

No one else in Ottawa offers this.

May 26 to Oct 10, 2021, every Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat & Sun, 2PM and 4PM departures, weather permitting, up to 12 spaces per tour.

We'll meet at the marina across the street from 895 rue Jacques-Cartier, Gatineau, Quebec (parking available behind that address, in a large parking area that is accessible from the west end of Jacques-Cartier). Look for the yacht with a red canvas top. A selection of beverages is offered. You may bring your own drinks and/or food. 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 marina. Life jackets are on board for everyone if needed. Stand or sit in the cockpit (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.

Two departure times: 2:00PM, or 4:00PM. Duration: approx 1hr-30min to 1h45min.

I am the captain and owner of a 38.5’ long and 12’ wide SeaRay Sundancer yacht that is in immaculate condition. I’ve lived in Ottawa for 37 years, and navigated the Ottawa river in the heart of downtown Ottawa for 7 years. I’m fluent in English, et en français, mature, responsible, and eager to give you an exiting tour on my yacht. For summer 2021, I will have my Small Vessel Operator Proficiency license and Med3A certification.

Erik and Gen were wonderful hosts and made the experience even better than expected! They were very accommodating given our last minute booking and the weather conditions during the the time we had originally booked. The drinks provided were great as well. All in all, our group would give them 10 stars if we could! Very unique outing with beautiful sunset views, would recommend to anyone looking for something different and fun to do while visiting the Ottawa/Quebec area.

Eric and Jen were super awesome hosts. The three of us are from Ottawa but have never had a boat ride along the river. It's a spectacular view! We loved it so much we are returning with friends on the last weekend Eric has his boat on the water.

Truly a wonderful experience! Me and my boyfriend have always wanted to go on a private yacht tour, and we finally came across this amazing opportunity. Eric and Jen were great hosts, they made us feel comfortable and assured we had a great time. I highly recommend this private tour for anyone looking to enjoy a beautiful evening on the Ottawa river, and watching the sunset!
