Ottawa Waterways

In addition to the historic Rideau Canal which disects the entire region, Eastern Ontario has an abundance of lakes, rivers and waterways.  While still in Ottawa, Rideau Canal and Ottawa River sightseeing boat cruises present the sights and sounds of the capital from a different perspective.  Travel 1¼ hours east to Cornwall to Creg Quay Marina for evening dinner on the St. Lawrence River.  Cruises along the impressive St. Lawrence River are offered at numerous towns along Highway 401 (or follow scenic route Highway #2).  Select Brockville, Rockport, Gananoque or Kingston to be the base for a scenic boat cruise, varying between 1-3 hours, in the St. Lawrence River and 1000 Islands region.  Other must-see attractions along this route are Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, and Fort Henry in Kingston.  Both spots situated on the banks of the St. Lawrence River will give your clients a glimpse back in time to the military and community life of the 1800ís in Upper Canada.
