Cruises and guided tours
Follow in the footsteps (or paddle strokes) of 17th century French explorer Samuel de Champlain, and discover our region from the water. Our local fleet includes the world's most Zen taxi: the completely silent, electric-powered Aqua-Taxi, which shuttlesbetween the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau and the wharf of the Ottawa locks. Enjoy a 360-degree vision of peace and beauty! Entertain friends on a happy-hour cruise aboard an aqua-limo, observe the flora and fauna of the Ottawa River wildlife refuge from an airboat, or party down on an old-fashioned steam-driven paddle wheeler. And for a unique land-and-water sightseeing experience, tour the National Capital Region by amphibus! You can also explore Outaouais by helicopter, by double-decker bus, or even by Segway. Champlain would be amazed!
