What you'll do

THIS TOUR MAY HAVE RESTRICTIONS DUE TO COVID.

No one else in Ottawa offers this.

Only available 5 Wed & Sat nights in mid-Aug 2021 (Aug 14, 18, 21, 25, 28 - TBD), weather permitting, up to 12 spaces per tour.

This tour books full and early, if interested, don't delay.

We'll meet at Marina Jacques-Cartier, across the street from 895 rue Jacques-Cartier, Gatineau. Bottled water available as needed. A glass of wine is offered, not sold. Alcohol may be consumed on Quebec side of river. 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. After navigating to Rideau Falls, we’ll head back to anchor near Alexandria Bridge to watch the Casino Lac Leamy international fireworks and listen to music synchronized to the fireworks. After the show, we’ll return to the Port. 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.

Fireworks usually start around 9:20PM. Departure: no later than 8:30PM. Duration: approx 2 hrs .

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.

What an amazing experience! Viewing Ottawa by night was incredibly special and the fireworks made it over the top. Erik was terrific and I am looking forward to booking again with friends.

This was my first Airbnb experience and it was awesome! The hosts were really nice and paid attention to our safety while also having fun with music and chatting. The music was relaxing, so was the slow cruise tour. Was quite a few people but still not too crowded. Everything went well, would definitely recommend :)

I don’t think there are words enough to explain just how incredible this experience was. It was everything and more than we could have expected and ERik and Gen were consumate professionals and some of the warmest hosts we have ever encountered. This is the ONLY way to see the fireworks. Thanks so much Erik and Gen, it was really great meeting you and sharing in this experience. Cheers!
