May 25-26, 2019


Kick off your touring year with a two-day outing on the beautiful Rideau Lakes.

Experience rowing through the four dramatic locks at Jones Falls, locks with the highest lift (almost 60’) of any station on the Rideau.

And visit the spectacular arch stone “Whispering Dam”, so named because people standing at either end of its 360’ wide structure can communicate quite well! So … watch those secrets!

Good food and warm hospitality will be provided by the old-fashioned Hotel Kenney.  Accommodation rates are based on double occupancy, and include the American meal plan of one lunch, one dinner and one breakfast.

So … please join us for this early season tour!
