A new eco-friendly boat tour program will offer a unique cruising experience for tourists and locals along the downtown portion of the Rideau Canal.

The locally built, state-of-the-art electric boats will host daytime tours and other special events. The first boat, The Queen Elizabeth Dr., will begin operations in time for Canada Day. The second, The Colonel By, will be launched in time for the 2017 season.
