About Paul’s Boat Lines

Paul’s Boat Lines Limited is Ottawa’s premiere sightseeing venue. We are proud to offer quality sightseeing cruises on the Historic Rideau Canal as well as on the famous Ottawa River.

Paul’s Boat Lines was founded by Paul Duhamel in 1936. Since that time, cruising with Paul’s Boat Lines has been a part of the Spring, Summer and Autumn Ottawa experience. We have been pleased and proud to entertain and host families and groups from all over the world. We offer tourists and residents alike a cruise along Early Canada’s original highways, the waterways which helped shape our nation. On both the Rideau Canal and the Ottawa River Paul’s Boat Lines maintains it’s tradition of presenting unique views and friendly, personalised service.

With three boats specifically built for the Rideau Canal and a large double decker boat built for the Ottawa River available for sightseeing and charter cruises we are sure to have something for everyone.
