What people are saying about Ottawa

I rarely write reviews but this was really cool! My husband and I tried this and we enjoyed it! It was a very interesting experience with this Hawaiian style boat, very relaxing! Captain Cris and his assistant Bobby are very nice and friendly. We would not hesitate to encourage our friends to try this cool adventure.

This is an excellent trip and different way to see some of the sites in OTTAWA. Captain Mike is very informative of the history of the sites on the river and gets very close to them in this unique boat and his first mate is a great bartender!

So much fun! We went at 10:30pm so had the nighttime view which was beautiful. Enjoyed having some drinks along the river. Was great weather so 1.5 hours was a nice amount of time on the water. Loved every minute!

Friendly, fun and efficient crew. Great views of the city and a good length of tour.

Amazing hosts, great strangers, I recommend this highly!
