Cruise Closer to Home

Post date: Author:

As an avid cruiser, have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the captain of your own ship? Wonder no more, as Le Boat let’s you rent your own houseboat for an overnight river cruising holiday, with no boating license or experience required. Just come aboard and staff provides you with a demonstration of everything you need to know before you set off on your boating adventure.

Long treasured in Europe, but relatively new to Canada, Le Boat lets you embark on an exploration of the Rideau Canal River this summer. Discover the beauty of this 202 km chain of lakes, rivers and canals that wind from Ottawa to Kingston and pass through many charming small towns along the way. Cruising with Le Boat let’s you customize your own itinerary, allowing you choose when and where to port.

With two bases located along the Rideau Waterway, you can either start midway between Ottawa and Kingston in Smith Falls, or closer to the south end of the river in Seeley’s Bay. Both options allow for plenty of adventure, culture and pristine nature. You even have the option to add a road trip before or after your cruise to near by destinations, such as Montreal, Toronto, and Niagara Falls.

With many of us choosing to stay closer to home this summer, a weeklong cruise with Le Boat is a great way to have a relaxing holiday while maintaining health and safety practices. Bokings made before Jun 30th will save up to 25% on cruises of the UNESCO Rideau Canal that depart in June, and savings of 10% of departures between July-October for any trip duration. If being the captain of your own ship this summer is something you're interested in experiencing, contact Jen Craig to learn more about prices and availability.
