Parliament Hill is all well and good, but this summer, there’s an even better reason to visit Ottawa. (Assuming, of course, that we’re able to travel.)
Floating tropical party bars.
Yes, you read that right. A company called Ottawa Tiki Tours has created a fleet of floating, grass-roofed huts that will cruise the Ottawa River until October. A “first mate” bartender on board will shake up tropical drinks, and guests can order snacks, bring their own tunes and/or pay for drone footage of their 90-minute adventure.
Of course, all of this depends on how the pandemic plays out, but if things go according to plan, Ottawa Tiki Tours will depart from Rockland and downtown Ottawa. Cost is $60 per person, and you need at least two people to make a booking. Ottawatikitours.com
