Ottawa Tiki Tours is the national capital area’s newest and coolest floating bar experience and it’s coming mid-May to the Ottawa River.
Imagine taking a relaxing tour up and down the Ottawa River on a Hawaiian style Tiki Hut with you and a bunch of your buds. Whether it’s just hanging with friends or taking a romantic cruise, or a School Group Heritage Excursion, Ottawa Tiki Tours is one of the coolest ways to get out on the water!
And of course it wouldn’t be a tiki bar without the fancy beverages and snacks. Aboard the floating exotic bars you can enjoy beer, wine, sangria, specialty drinks and specialty coffees along with virgin specialty drinks. There is also an assortment of salty snacks.
Operations are currently set to manage the Tiki Cruises just east of Ottawa in city of Rockland, Ontario. Both vessels are scheduled to debark from that location, but there are negotiations with The National Capital Commission to have a debarkation point somewhere downtown. Owners Mike & Gaby are open to working with other marinas along the Ottawa and Rideau rivers for the potential placement of a 3rd boat.
This floating Tiki Boat is the best way to experience the beautiful Ottawa River. They will be offering an amazing experience aboard an exclusive and unique 20′ x 20′ custom built Tiki Boat. Passengers will be envied on the water as they cruise the time away sipping drinks, listening or singing karaoke to their favourite tropical tunes!
The motor-run vessel accommodates up to twelve guests (and two crew) and is equipped with fully functioning washroom facilities, Bluetooth speaker, bar stools, flat screen TV, karaoke system and all necessary safety equipment. Passengers are invited to bring their own food and enjoy our selection of cocktails as our First Mate serves up a selection of Tropical drinks or other beverages. Our captains are all small vessel certified and licensed by Transport Canada.
Covid has taken its toll on travel, so their philosophy is, “If you can’t make it to Hawaii, we will bring Hawaii to you!”. Many living in the Ottawa Valley don’t have a boat but want to be on the water, or they simply want to try something new. Ottawa Tiki Boats will scratch that itch.
