This lovely Ottawa River cruise offers the finest views along the waterway. With departures from the Hull Marina in Jacques Cartier Park and the Ottawa Dock, located at the foot of the Ottawa Locks, this one and a half hour boat trip is the most thorough tour available on the water.
The vessel Paula D, is ideal for an excursion of this type. You can relax and enjoy a hot or cold beverage on the large upper deck and on the lower deck you will find a nice snack 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.
