The Rideau Canal is a chain of beautiful lakes, rivers and locks extending 202 km from Kingston, at the east end of Lake Ontario to Ottawa, Canada's capital city. Completed in 1832 by the British, this historic waterway with its 45 locks and 19 km of canal cuts is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site carefully maintained and operated by Parks Canada. Parks Canada has also designated the Rideau as a Canadian Heritage River. For more information on the Rideau Canal please check the links at the bottom of this page.

Springtime Plus Cruises offer an extra day of sightseeing and an extra night of accommodation for the same fare.
Spring cruising on Canada's historic waterways is just plain delightful. Days are normally warm and sunny. Evenings are long and only as darkness settles in do insects appear, but by that time passengers are enjoying comradeship in the lounge. The colours and smells and sounds of spring are truly a festival for the senses.
The itinerary changes from year to year so look for details in a current schedule. These annual Springtime Plus Cruises have become the most popular of all our cruises so book early and welcome aboard.
