Let us recommend a pontoon boat rental – details below
Cruising on the water is a lovely tradition along the Rideau Canal.
While we no longer offer scheduled boat tours, we do recommend a pontoon boat rental from Brown’s Marina located right at Chaffey’s Lock. The pontoons have covers to protect from the sun or light rain and come equiped with ifejackets and all safety equipment provided as per Transport Canada safety regulations.
Charters with a Captain can be arranged by calling all Rideau Tours at 613-583-4783 for more details.
Rideau Boat Tours – Suggested cruising routes
The 3 LOCK EXPERIENCE
Nature & Heritage Discovery of Chaffey’s, Davis Lock & Jones Falls
We recommend a full day for this route which can includes a 1 hour stop-over at Jones Falls to explore this spectacular lockstation featuring the “Whispering Wall” Stone Arch dam, Blacksmith Shop, Sweeney House Museum and visitor centre. Please note that Jones Falls is challenging for guests with mobility issues as the terrain is steep & uneven.
Think about ordering a Gourmet Picnic for $35 per person from Wendy’s Country Market or bring your own picnic on board.
The 3 LAKE LOOP
Indian Lake, Clear Lake & Newboro Lake
Explore these three lakes and visit the Newboro Lockstation. If weather permits you can stop for a swim at the sandbar on Clear Lake. We will be pleased to show you where this is located on the chart (map).
FALL COLOURS of the Rideau
Pontoon boat rentals are also avalable in the Fall. Come explore the Rideau in the Fall when the lake are a little quieter but featuring an added touch of colour. The locks operate until Canadian Thanksgiving.
