|The beauty of the Ottawa is its size. Big rapids and warm water all summer combine to make the Ottawa Canada’s top rafting and kayaking destination. Running through an island paradise of 175 islands, the Ottawa boasts rapids, waterfalls, sandy beaches and spectacular rock formations all in isolated splendor. This whitewater archipelago features a variety of paddling challenges with two exciting and very different channels: The Ottawa’s MAIN CHANNEL is a straight forward rock ’em, sock ’em BIG WATER run. You’ll challenge the MAIN’s towering waves and giant hydraulics with an experienced instructor at your side. It’s a fantastic opportunity as you tackle the biggest whitewater east of the Colorado. The tight and technical MIDDLE CHANNEL is an ideal setting for a completely diferent experience. You’ll have the time of your life as you zig and zag down this challenging run under the watchful supervision of our caring instructors.|
The competitors at the recent World Championships held on the Ottawa echoed what we have been saying for almost 25 years... "the Ottawa is arguably the best freestyle river in the world". All the attributes for making the Ottawa Canada’s top rafting river make it the world’s top freestyle kayak river. Where can you find waves to rival Lava Falls, holes as big as Crystal, a waterfall to test the ’hairiest’ of boaters and water as warm as the tropics...
