We enjoyed the Ottawa river cruise. Well done presentation, friendly staff, nice views of important buildings in the area, great opportunities for photographs.

This is one big river, to just look upon it, allows you to feel its power, it’s imposes itself on you, like no other river I’ve ever seen.

We took the river taxi from the War museum back to Ottawa, right near the locks, as we initially crossed the river using Alexandra bridge.

The river taxi is very small, under 15 people can sit and stand and is very easy to run when the water is calm.

The fee was low too and we got great views towards both Gatineau and Ottawa and the driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.

I happen to follow the river from Montreal to Ottawa and down to Kingston.

It's really beautiful and massive in Quebec.

Jet skiers in Ottawa, it didn't like clean in Ottawa but people seems to enjoy the river tours.

As the sales person recommended, we went for the sunset cruise, which was the last scheduled cruise of a day. It shows sight seeing from the river, which was so different from on the ground.

The guide points out all the spots with short story in both English and French, but they offer other language's tape if you wish.

It was a magical view when the sun started to go down.

クルーズ会社のセールスのお兄さんに薦められて、サンセットクルーズにしました。
水の上からの観光は、陸のものとはまた違った光景です。

ガイドの方が英語とフランス語で観光スポットの説明もしてくれますが、他の言語のテープも用意されているようです。

日が暮れ始めると、その景色は素晴らしかったです。

Do not miss this great water ride from the Bytown Museum dock in Ontario to the Museum of History dock in Quebec. The captain is friendly, knowledgeable, and a treat to all of his passengers. At $5/ride for children this is the best value in town!

I went there in the sunset and it was so beautiful to view the bridge from Rideau Canal. It memorized me about my mother country with Long Bien bridge.

Unbelievable, always wanted to skate on the radeau river.. So many Kms of ice that are maintained by city staff. Food and warm drinks along the way and even live music when we were there...
Fun and exciting for all ages. Yes lots of people however because it's so long and wide you can still skate leisurely, or can pick up the pace.
A must for Ottawa in winter.

There's a new marina on the Ottawa River called the Ottawa River Club, They have gas, a private beach, restrooms and the service is incredible. They're located near the Cumberland/Masson ferry, or between Rockland and Petrie Island marinas. Definitely worth it to stop and refuel and say hi.
