Even though bungee jumping was first invented in New Zealand, the heart-stopping feat has spread across the globe, including the Ottawa region, where visitors can plummet off a crane into Morrison's Quarry.
Considered one of the wildest bungee spots in the world by Travel and Leisure, this jump allows daring participants to get a little wet - as by the time they reach the bottom about 200 feet below, leapers are gently dunked into the cool water.
Great Canadian Bungee provides this particular jump, which is only open to people over the age of 18. While visitors may think that bungee jumping is dangerous, the chances of getting injured are miniscule - the only hard part is mustering up the courage to leap off the platform.
Located just 20 minutes north of downtown Ottawa, Morrison's Quarry is simply stunning, with turquoise waters akin to the Caribbean and vertical cliffs.
