3. Ottawa: Sunrise Yacht Trip & Historic Sites with Breakfast
Board a luxury yacht at dawn, just minutes before the sun rises over Ottawa, Ontario’s stately second city and Canada’s capital. Set off on the calm Ottawa River, enjoying views of iconic buildings and national historic sites lined along the shoreline before heading to ByWard Market for breakfast.
Find your spot on the open-air back deck of luxury yacht Dolce Far Niente to watch the morning sun cast its glow on the river, city, and surrounding landscapes. Learn about Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, where the country’s Gothic-style buildings on the river are home of the Parliament of Canada.
Gaze at the 1912 Chateau Laurier’s limestone turrets and masonry, which are reminiscent of a French chateau. Then, as you cruise alongside the Rideau Canal, imagine ice skating on this UNESCO World Heritage Site in winter when it becomes the world’s longest skating rink.
Continue taking in the views on this excursion that travels to Rideau Falls, a pair of cascades that rise 36 feet nearby its namesake park, which was established after the Second World War. Look across the expansive Ottawa River to imagine the provincial boundary with Ontario’s neighbor, Quebec.
End your luxury yacht tour on dry land in the city at ByWard Market, a bustling destination with restaurants, cafes, and local vendors. Settle in at Zak’s Diner for a hot breakfast composed of a set menu of dishes such as pancakes, bacon, and omelets, complemented by juices, tea, and coffee.
