Activity description

Spend two hours aboard a luxury yacht to discover the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau from the Ottawa River!

Departing from the Jacques-Cartier Marina, near the Lady Aberdeen Bridge in Gatineau, you will have the pleasure of taking a boat tour on the Ottawa River. Separating Ottawa and Gatineau, as well as Ontario and Quebec for several kilometres, this waterway will allow you to see from a new angle various points of interest in both cities: the Parliament Buildings, the Alexandra Bridge, the Château Laurier, the Rideau Falls, etc. From the open deck of Ottawa Yacht Tours' luxury yachts, you will experience an incredible scenic cruise on the Ottawa River!

To make this boat cruise even more memorable, why not have it at noon, with a meal prepared by a local caterer? The Gatineau-based craft brewery À La Dérive has designed 3 custom sandwiches full of fresh ingredients, served with homemade chips and non-alcoholic beverages especially for this cruise on the Ottawa River. A great way to enjoy your time on the water!

If you wish to visit Ottawa and Gatineau in a different way, or if you simply wish to spend a pleasant moment of relaxation on board a high quality boat, this cruise on the Ottawa River will leave you with unforgettable memories!

So book your Ottawa River cruise and discover the points of interest along the river between Ottawa and Gatineau!
