Cruising the Ottawa River or the Canal Rideau is a relaxing way to take in some of Ottawa's must-see sights. Established in 1936, by Paul Duhamel, Paul's Boat Lines offers a 90-minute cruise on the Ottawa River that departs from the Ottawa Locks and takes you by points of interest such as the Parliament Buildings, the Museum of Civilization and the Prime Minister's Residence. The cruise on the Canal Rideau takes 75 minutes and departs from the Conference Centre. Along the way you'll see the University of Ottawa, Lansdowne Park, the Experimental Farm, Dow's Lake and more. Boats depart daily from two locations: Hull Marina and Ottawa Locks.
