Wondering if I can get any Ontario whaler trips going. Late June early July for a trip up and down, Kingston to Ottawa, Rideau canal is the first I would like and probably will do. It will be a camping trip for me but lots of accomodation along the way. Interested?

Is much of the canal designated a no-wake zone?

Hi Dave, there are some parts with no wake but I'm not sure how much. There are lakes between the 25 locks with the longest stretch between locks of 24 miles. It could be a 3 days trip just pushing through but I will probably take 5 so I can do some fishing and tour a couple towns. There is a good site at Rideau-info.com

JimH did a write up on his trip on the Rideau Canal back in 2007. That would be an excellent source of information.
