our Approach~~~

While there are other bigger and more commercial boating experiences available to visitors and locals to the Ottawa Region, Ottawa Yacht Tours offers a smaller, intimate and more personal experience unmatched by any other. You’ll feel like a good friend or just part of our family when you come on board and hang out on the water with us.

our Story~~~

There is something utterly therapeutic, we’ve discovered, and unmatched about lounging, on a yacht, under way on water, under a warm sun, on a hot summer day, gently rocked by endless waves while listening to good music, and with a cold drink in hand, thinking about nothing and just being in the moment. This is meant to be shared.

This yacht is like a floating summer cottage, a home that happens to navigate on the beautiful Ottawa river. We adore meeting new people, making new friends, and enjoy sharing this space and the amazing experience of navigating the river and seeing the beauty of Ottawa.

Erik the captain


I strive to keep the yacht in immaculate condition. I’ve lived in the National Capital Region for 36 years, and navigated the Ottawa-Gatineau river for 6 years. I’m fluent in English, et en français, mature, responsible, and eager to give you an exiting tour on my yacht. I have had an Ontario boating licence for 6+ years.

Self-Proclaimed Beach bum

I have a passion for water and vitamin sea! Born and raised in the National Capital Region, I have travelled the world and am always excited to meet new people. Fluent in English and French, I can also muster a bit of Spanish if needed. I am always proud to show my city to visitors. Ask me anything during the tour, it will be my pleasure to answer you.
