For the ultimate way to spend an evening this summer, you can go on a magical Fireworks Cruise in Ottawa! Instead of trying to watch the fireworks above the crowds, you can get the best view of the fireworks this July and August aboard Capital Cruises.
Ottawa is lucky to have so many firework shows in the summer including on Canada Day and the Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light show in August. For the most spectacular, unobstructed view, you can enjoy Ottawa's fireworks cruise on the water!
This July and August you can book an evening cruise on Capital Cruises along the Ottawa River. Aboard the ship, you can enjoy live music, and seeing the fireworks light up the sky. Get ready to party aboard the cruise with your friends, as there will be a live musician, a full-service bar, and an open-air deck top giving you the best possible view of the fireworks.
The fireworks cruise is surprisingly very affordable! The regular price of the 3 hour long fireworks cruise is $28 a person and takes place on August 10, 14, 17, 21, and 24. Compared to the seat prices for the Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light show it is only $3 more, but instead of being stuck in your seat, you can dance around and enjoy cocktails too.
Still not sure what you are going to do to celebrate Canada Day this year? For the ultimate Canada Day party, you'll want to book the Canada Day fireworks cruise on July 1 which is $65 a person.
