A Floating Feast on the Rideau Canal



EARLY for a boating vacation on Ontario's Rideau Canal, a 202-kilometre waterway that extends from Ottawa to Kingston. Le Boat, a boat-chartering company founded in 1969, has expanded into Canada, focusing on the historic Rideau Waterway. From their main base at Smiths Falls you can pick up your deluxe cabin cruiser and explore North America's oldest continuous­ly operated canal system. While dining under the stars with a meal created in the cruiser's fully equipped kitchen is an unforgetta­ble experience, you can ramp up the food fun with stops at places such as CC's on the Rideau, a woodbeamed waterfront restaurant at Rideau Ferry, or Scheuerman­n Vineyard and Winery in Westport, where you can enjoy a wine tasting, snack on wood fire pizza or opt for their weekend wood grill menu. They'll even pick you up near the marina if you call ahead. By Carol Perehudoff. www.LeBoat.ca
