OTTAWA YACHT TOURS

SAILING SINCE 2014

Somewhere in between the items on the long list of life's to-dos, there exists a small sliver of time. Yet it's this part that, while tiny in comparison, takes up the most room in our hearts and memories. At Ottawa Yacht Tours, we understand how vital this time is to you.

TWO GREAT YACHTS

There’s no doubting the fact that yachting is both glamorous and exclusive. Owning, let alone riding on, a yacht is an experience relatively unmatched in the world; it is - quite simply - exciting.

AMAZING SIGHTS

If you’re searching for some of the most exciting views in Canada's National Capital Region, set your naval compass on one or our spectacular yachts. The city, and the water, are spectacular from one of our bows.

Professional Crew

We offer all you could imagine and more. Our crews are unfaltering in attention to detail, unrelenting in the bid to become better, and entirely committed to offering the complete service.

Discover new places

Be our nautical tourist and discover yachting in the core of Canada's National Capital Region, on water, in the heart of the city, and be surprised, surrounded by greenery and the distant city skyline.

People About Us

Incredible Sunset Tour Experience

Thank you! From the moment I arrived at the dock to the second I waved goodbye I felt like a VIP! The sunset views were spectacular, the food was delicious, the friendly and attentive crew totally enhanced my experience. Can’t wait for my next tour and to dance into the sunset on your beautiful yacht!

Perfect Date Night

Amazing Yachts and friendly crew. Absolutely the best boat tour on the Ottawa River. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. No better way to spend an evening with an unbeatable view and great company; a romantic sunset yacht cruise was our perfect date night. There's no doubt we'll be back on Ottawa Yacht Tours every summer.

A great night

Absolutely loved our experience with Ottawa Yacht Tours. It was a great night for our friends to spend the evening on the river and watch the sunset. The team was so professional and friendly and really made sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great time in Ottawa!

Always a 5-star event

Another fab evening with Ottawa Yacht Tours. I've been booking OYT for team building, social media nights, and for personal reasons. Erik and his team always make my guests feel welcome & at home; he even tries to learn everyone's first name. Each tour is exceptional; we've done morning, afternoon, and sunset tours. Consistently top-notch service, our requests are met without any hesitation, from cheeseboards to a live DJ event.

Fantastic tours

My husband and I have taken several tours with Ottawa Yacht Tours and they have all been fantastic! Erik, the owner, is genuine, knowledgeable and most importantly, a great host. We had great conversations and were able to visit some of Erik's favorite places and must-see tourist attractions along the Ottawa River, including unparalleled views of the Parliament Buildings, Fairmont Chateau Laurier and the waterfalls. We highly recommend Ottawa Yacht Tours and look forward to our next visit!

We reserved spots on the boat for my birthday, group of 5 girls..had an amazing time, we were well taken care of and Eric went the extra mile to make my day exciting and special. Very friendly and great communicator. You can tell they accommodate to the customers’ needs and that makes a difference. The scenic view from the water was amazing too. Having another pick up location in Ontario eventually would be ideal, however the walk on the bridge on our way back went well. Thanks for everything. Definitely will recommend. 🙂read more

Great service! Very accommodating! We celebrated a birthday and they let us bring the helium balloons and helped us with pictures and everything we asked for. The boats were very nicely decorated and clean.read more

Eric and Gen were amazing hosts! My wife and I arrived mid week for the lunch cruise. To our surprise we were the only guests booked for the time slot. With today’s fuel prices we anticipated our cruise to be cancelled…or rescheduled. Instead, they took us on a first class cruise…with a personal touch…on one of their luxurious yachts. BTW lunch was great, and the company even better. Bravo!read more

The absolute best time today with Eric and crew on board his stunning yacht. From the moment Eric greeted us to the moment we said goodbye, we received a five star experience. The lunch was gorgeous, the service was spectacular and the whole tour was worth every cent. We rarely do the same tour twice, but we will be back 100%.read more

I was invited to this tour through a work place reward program. I was happy to accept the offer, but admittedly had no idea about the experience I was about to have. The service, the boat, was above expectations. The experience of viewing the Ottawa River from a different, luxurious vantage point was what really made this trip memorable. Something any tourist, or proud citizen of Ottawa should experience.5 Stars all day.read more
