This boat trip was the first thing we did after arriving in Quebec and provided a great introduction to the city. The commentary was fascinating and delivered in both English and French. There was plenty of seating indoors and out. I believe drinks and snacks were available for purchase but I was too busy enjoying the sunshine and beautiful views... More

This was an enjoyable 90 minutes and well worth the fare. tickets can be obtained at the ticket booth on the pier, or by reservation online in the busy season. A costumed guide speaks in fluent French and English, taking you through all the sights throughout the harbour and up the St Lawrence with a great view of Montmorency Falls... More

Interesting trip from Quebec up to mont monrency falls. Boat clean and comfortable with good views. Interesting commentary from a guy in fancy dress! Recommend. Buy tickets from tourism office or from booth close to port Beware. It will be busy if a cruise ship is in port

We took the Zodiac trip from Baie Sainte Catherine during the last week of September. It was great. First we saw a large pod of grey seals. Then we saw numerous minke whales. Then we saw dozens of humpback whales, and on the way back, at the Saguenay estuary we saw several belugas. The weather was cold but fantastic. Bring... More

We booked through our hotel for the 1.5 hour river cruise from Quebec Old Port to view the Montmorency Falls and part of the Ile d'Orleans. The voucher was easily exchanged for tickets at the operator's booking office near the boarding point. The vessel has plenty of open and covered space and as the weather was good, we selected a...

Took the 1.5 hour sightseeing cruise aboard the AML Louis Jolliet from Chouinard Pier in Quebec City. It was a sunny, breezy day and so nice to see Quebec City from the water! Cruise had food and drinks available for purchase, but we passed on these options, as we just had lunch before boarding for the 2pm cruise. Commentary was... More

Hubby booked this along with our Grey Line via our tour of Quebec City. Nice short cruise through the river. Good drinks and great tour guide. Make sure you try the whisky maple syrup drink, it certainly made the trip more fun. Love the history and relaxing warm trip on the river.

In 1.5 hours, you can get a great view of the city and the river that made it what it was. The view of the falls is spectacular and seeing Orleans Island made us want to stay another day just to explore. The boat and crew were just right. The professional narration was excellent and food and beverages were readily... More

First of all, we purchased the VIP Tickets which gave us window seats for dinner which did offer a great view. Only problem..the dining deck slants toward the water which was a bit uncomfortable....nothing they can do about that. The food was OK with marginal appetizers, a good main course of steak and lobster, followed by a real average dessert.... More
