Whether you are with family and friends on a private cruiser, or celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party on a bigger yacht, spend the day at one of Ottawa's most popular beaches, Petrie Island !! The Island offers sandy beaches, great swimming, tanning, outdoor activites, canoeing and motorized water sports($). If you're into Caribbean, the summer festive period offers great music, succulent food and tropical drinks. Along the way enjoy the historic sites and fascinating views of the Ottawa River. Depart early from the Ottawa NCC public dock at 9:30am and return by 6:30pm. Use the dinghy to transport from the boat to the beach. Take an umbrella and sun lotion with you. Don't forget your towels and your cooler. The services of the Captain and crew are available for hire on boats over 30' for the day.

Ottawa River including Petrie Island and Music on the Beach
A nice leisurely, relaxing boat cruise down the Ottawa River with a visit to Petrie Island Beach….What an amazing way to spend a Sunday! Lunch on the boat, beached on the Island, water, sun and then a live DJ playing on the beach topped off the day! Captain Moe is a great host and tour guide OR is happy to just disappear into the background and let you enjoy a nice peaceful cruise with family and friends. And who can complain when a live DJ is playing amazing music on the beach! Then a BBQ dinner on the boat before returning to the dock. Who can ask for anything more! I highly recommend Captain Moe’s beautiful yacht for a day, night, weekend or even a week long adventure!!! [TripAdvisor.ca Ottawa Yacht Tour August 2015]
Amazing Time !
We rented Pashmina for a Canada Day bachelorette and had the best time ever!! We went down river and anchored next to an Island. We had our drinks and music and went swimming. We returned to the dock to watch the most amazing Canada Day fireworks closeup ever seen. Captain Moe and his crew were both so nice and helpful and really went above and beyond to make everything PERFECT! If you are thinking of renting this boat DO IT-you won’t be disappointed! It’s the best one! We wanna go again!! Thank you! 😀 [Tripadvisor Ottawa Private Yacht tours. July 2017]
