Enjoy a cruise on the Ottawa River from May through October and—depending on the itinerary you choose—admire the sunset, thrill to fireworks or learn about Ottawa's history.
See Ottawa from a new perspective with Capital Cruises. Since the company's Empress of Ottawa has two enclosed decks and an open-air one, you can take in the view in any weather. Other on-board amenities include washrooms, a licensed snack bar and ample seating. During the picturesque journey, onboard staff share live commentary in English and French, and audioguides are available in seven additional languages. On sunset cruises, you can add a buffet dinner package to your ticket.
Board at the Ottawa Dock next to the Ottawa locks of the Rideau Canal (below Parliament Hill and the Bytown Museum), or at the Gatineau Dock in Jacques Cartier Park.
