Air cooling and air conditioning

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.

The Horizon ís a cleverly designed and very impressive boat, but they would be so much nicer if they were maintained better on the outside. Great place, great people.

A staycation to remember. Rest and relaxation, family time, dinners, games, teatimes, drinks, walks and cuddles. WE LOVED IT! From the beginning Lisa was so helpful. She made sure we were comfortable in every aspect of using Le Boat before we went off on our own. Everything from unloading our car into the wheeled carts to filling our space was super simple. The boat had everything we needed to cook, clean and be comfortable. We had a rainy day and the 9 of us never felt like we were on top of each other so the space is laid out very well. Some things to consider bringing are bricks and starter gas to take advantage of the grills at the locks. A scouring pad for easier dishes. Remember your fishing rod, swim noodles, movies and of course all your board/card games. The Rideau Canal is easy to navigate, but you do need to follow the signs. Keep in mind that all the small towns close early so if you need supplies get to port during daytime hours. I would do this again in a heartbeat. Spacious. They layout was great for 9 of us.

Each time I had to be in communication with the base in Smiths Falls, I was always greeted with such kindness. Chris was very helpful, kind and courteous. When booking my trip over the phone, Helen was fantastic, knowledgeable and helpful in addressing all my questions and concerns. Great experience, even if you are new to boating. The orientation, plus videos you are provided with on their website, make it more comfortable to navigate the boat and explore the Region.

What a great group to work with. The boats are in perfect shape. The team that greets you trains you and runs the operation are all wonderful. This is a great experience and during covid a great safe way for a family to have a wonderful time together. The boats despite thier size are very easy to pilot and the Rideau Canal locksmiths are very helpful. Great boats and mother nature will not disappoint with the scenery. Easy to pilot - fully loaded 'yachts'. Enjoy what the Rideau has to offer. Can't wait to try this in Europe
