Looking for a tropical way to experience the Ottawa River? Float on a Hawaiian-style hut while enjoying great scenery and drinks with friends.

Cruise down the Ottawa River on a boat built to look like a Hawaiian palapa hut, with a thatched roof and wooden bar that seats 12 people. Sit back and enjoy the views of downtown Ottawa and Gatineau while sipping on cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages, and nibbling on light snacks such as chips and pretzels.

Ottawa Palapa Tours has two vessels, Lilo and Moana, departing from the wharf at Jacques-Cartier Park in Gatineau, just across the river from Ottawa. Cruises last 90 minutes and the company also offers charters and corporate or full-day rates. Hold your bachelorette or bachelor party, sunset cruise, family gathering, team-building event, or wedding onboard—they even have a licensed wedding officiant available!
