“Remic Rapids”
Review of Ottawa River

Ranked #1,076 of 4,653 things to do in Ontario
Attraction details
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Art along the river. At the Remic Rapids along the Ottawa River Parkway you can see the balancing rocks. It is different every year. A wonder along the parkway.
Visit near sunset for some great photos.
A must see a little off the beaten path, 5 minutes from the War Museum.

in Ottawa, both canal and river trips are offered for visitors for a boat trip. take the river cruise and not the canal , in the canal you see nothing some embassy and an expensive house and a deserted stadium. dont take it. the river cruise , which is few dollars more is much better.

tips: please buy token for bus fare from designated shop if you insist to use public bus as mode of transportation. as you insert the token in the machine in the bus wait until you get the ticket to be used for another bus within 1 hour. its more cheaper.
half a day trip can cover almost entire Ottawa.

This was advertised as a fun way to see historic downtown Ottawa.. It is a bus that drives around downtown Ottawa and then drives right down into the Ottawa river and floats down the river a ways Wow it was hilarious. If you have ever watched Seinfeld and seen the episode where Kramer does the real Peterman tour you will appreciate this tour. The guide had a boom box on which he played random songs to match the scenery at times bursting into song and telling the corniest jokes. We loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting beautiful Ottawa. It was one of the highlights of our visit.

We were worried after reading the reviews posted, but that made our experience on the Dinner Cruise a pleasent surprise! Staff was more than friendly and the food was what you would expect for a catered meal on a boat - it's a boat, not a full scale restaurant! A lovely way to spend a hot evening on the water.
