Tours and Tickets by Le Bateau-Mouche au Vieux-Port de Montreal
Cruise the St. Lawrence River and see Montreal from the water on a sightseeing boat from the Old Port. Montreal can be clogged with traffic during busy hours, but trading ground transport for a river cruise avoids those crowded streets and sidewalks. You’ll have great views of the Montreal waterfront, spotting the Jacques Cartier Bridge, Montreal Olympic Stadium, Habitat 67, and other sites along the way.

It was a hot day and the boat was hot inside...it got cooled down at the end of the voyage. No commentary was given and that was a bit disappointing! We were expecting some commentary to enhance this so called sightseeing. You decide for yourself if it is worth your money.

My family and I had a wonderful time. The onboarding was easy. We had a good view from the side of the boat and my kids enjoyed it. They serve drinks inside and some snacks. It's a good way to leisurely see Montreal from the St. Lawrence River.

This is NOT a sightseeing tour, it's a mini boat cruise. The boat goes out into the river, past the amusement park, past a bunch of shipping containers and back to the port. There was no commentary or anything. The drinks were watered down. I'd do one of the canal boats next time for actual sightseeing.

Terrible. Tickets are expensive - it was $150 for 4 of us - and there is no commentary during the cruise, notwithstanding the fact that the website indicted that we would enjoy the "comments of the tour guide", so we had no idea what we were seeing. When I complained afterwards they said they had decided not to have a tour guide because of COVID, which makes no sense because they had lots of people serving drinks (the focus of the cruise seemed to be selling drinks). Also doesn't explain why they didn't use taped commentary, or a URL link, or anything so that we knew what we were looking at. (We had to Google descriptions of what we were seeing to try to get some information about them.) They should have warned us before we bought tickets that this was a do-it-yourself cruise. Also the COVID protocols were terrible - they asked if we had masks before we boarded but hardly anyone was wearing them, and the staff said nothing, nor were there any mention of masks in the safety announcements.
