Life on the Water at Heritage Harbor Ottawa

Heritage Harbor Ottawa offers a world-class deep water marina, amazing boating amenities, and scenic waterfront properties just 90 minutes from Chicago, in the heart of Starved Rock Country.  The gorgeous Illinois River provides an incredible backdrop to our amazing resort.  Boating, kayaking, fishing, canoeing…just a few ways to explore our incredible slice of Heaven.

Grab a kayak or canoe and create your own tranquil tour around the marina, taking in the spectacular scenery.  Or board a boat and enjoy fishing, water skiing, tubing, sightseeing, or any number of other boating activities.  Don’t have your own boat, kayak, or canoe?  We have daily rentals available. 

Make new friends, reconnect with family, relax, have fun!  There are 32 acres and 76.5 million gallons of water in our marina, just waiting to be explored.

Paddleboard, Kayak, and Boat Rentals

Heritage Harbor Ottawa partners with Quest Watersports for paddleboard, kayak, and boat rentals.  All rentals are launched from our protected, low-traffic, 32-acre marina.  It’s a great spot for beginners to get a feel for boarding or kayaking.  From there, riders may venture out to the Illinois River and enjoy 12+ scenic miles between the Marseilles and Starved Rock locks. For your convenience, our staff will transport the equipment to the marina launch site for you, and retrieve it when you’re finished.

Quest Watersports also offers boat club membership!   Imagine your choice of premium boats, whenever you like. Better yet, NO boat loan, NO maintenance expense or hassle, and NO storage or trailering. Just choose a boat online, pick a time to go boating, and that boat will be ready and waiting for you at the marina.
