What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Paul's Boat Lines, Ottawa, Ontario

The Paula D is ideal for an excursion. You have the opportunity to see the beautiful landscape of Ottawa, and relax and enjoy a nice cold beverage on the large upper deck.
In addition, on the lower deck, our passengers will find our canteen and our bar (with permission to sell alcohol). The cruise offers a spectacular view of the city and allows you to see the river as it was used long ago: as a highway to transport resources. You will also see the natural beauty of the region that captured the imagination of the first European explorer Samuel de Champlain.
