Air conditioning and air cooling

When the temperatures soar, our cabin air cooling system can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Air cooling uses canal/river water to produce cool air which is blown out through vents.


Please note: This is not the same as air-conditioning which can achieve lower temperatures and has a thermostatic control. Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

Boats are absolutely perfect for enjoying the Rideau Canal with family. Staff was great! The Horizon boat is extremely well designed; lots of room and easy to operate.

This is our second rental this year. Service was excellent. The boat was ready in time. The only thing I wish was done are the beds. It is confusing to sort out what's in the bag. I know this is due to COVID. So I hope it will not be a problem next year. Plenty of room for us (we were supposed to have 6 people but ended up with only 4), so we had plenty of room. We like the way the shower partition work.
Dear Gilles, Thank you for taking the time to write a five star review and thank you for coming back for a second trip in such a difficult year. We are so pleased you enjoyed the experience both to Portland and now this time to Merrickville. We also hope that we are able to make the beds again next year but will bring your feedback to base staff for their attention. We look forward to welcoming you onboard again soon. The Le Boat Team

absolutely the best. Really, no issues from the beginning to the end. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it. We were able to get a lower price by changing our schedule to mid week pick up
