Who's On Board?

September 2019 Multimedia Le Boat

This Friday, September 20, Le Boat will be featured on the PBS tourism show TravelScope with host Joseph Rosendo. Returning for its 11th season, TravelScope follows the travelling adventures of Rosendo and his wife Julie. Tune in this Friday as the Rosendo’s take a captivating trip along the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rideau Canal, aboard one of Le Boat’s premier Horizon cruiser.

“Taking a chartered Le Boat vessel down the Rideau Canal is a glamping experience,” commented Rosendo. “Everything’s supplied for you and you can experience the canal’s natural and cultural riches at a leisurely pace.”

“Le Boat makes it easy for people to boating vacation out on the water.  Our luxury houseboats are like floating condos and are easy to drive!  Renting our boat is just like renting a car, except there is no license or experience necessary,” said Le Boat’s Marketing Manager, Lisa McLean. “Our team provides an in-depth instruction to the boat crew and teaches vacationers everything they will need to know to driving the boat, moor and navigate the waterways.” 

“Le Boat also provides suggested itineraries so you can discover and enjoy Canada at your own pace,” added McLean. “It is truly a great way to discover Canada’s beauty from the unique perspective of a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are many stops at local villages and towns along the Rideau Canal that offer their own unique activities and shopping experiences.”

Le Boat’s episode on TravelScope was filmed during Le Boat’s first fall season and showcases the highlights of the picturesque, Rideau Canal. You can follow along as the Rosendo’s cruise through idyllic surroundings, discover fascinating culture, historic sites and indulge in authentic Canadian cuisine.

Since filming, Le Boat has expanded their fleet of premier Horizon cruisers to 20 boats, with a planned four more boats arriving in 2020. Le Boat has also added a second base at Seeley’s Bay . The addition of this well-located base will give visitors the chance to discover even more of the Rideau Canal.

Le Boat’s episode on TravelScope airs this Friday, September 20, 2019 (check your local listings for show times)  and can be seen on PBS stations nationwide as well as streaming on Amazon Prime Video in November.
