About
One of Québec’s best-kept secrets and one of the most spectacular view of the Old Town. Located at the heart of Old Québec City, the ride (one-way) takes about 12 minutes. During summertime, discover the marked bike paths located on both sides of the shore: Corridor du Littoral (Quebec City) and Parcours des Anses (Lévis). In winter, the mouvement of the ice on the St. Lawrence River is truly impressing.

This is a fun way to cross the St Lawrence. Lévis is a good place to turn around, walk a bit then return on the ferry. Gives a good photo app of Quebec City

Great fun! One way ticket about $3.50 per adult (less for seniors and/or kids). Ferry runs about every 30 minutes and it takes 12 minutes to reach the other side. We walked around where the ferry docks and had lunch at the micro brewery, Corsaire. Good food and beer. Bus available to upper part of Levis - but may not be worth the effort unless you have time to kill. Walked back via the red stairs.

During the day we rode one of the main tour boats up the Saint Lawrence to Montmorency Falls. But at night we took a short ride on the Levis Ferry for photos of the Chateau Frontenac. Absolutely stunning.

We enjoyed taking the ferry on a clear day. It’s just so easy and accessible and a nice ride to see the suburbs of Levi across the St Lawrence River. We stayed on Levi for about 20 minutes and hopped back on the ferry. When you’re on Dufferin terrace looking over the St Lawrence River, you’ll see a Ferris wheel lit up at night. We were wondering what that was; it’s on Levi. Cool to see the views of Old Quebec from the water. It took about an hour round trip including our time on Levi.

The ferry only takes about 12 minutes and is comfortable with great views. The problem was that there was nothing to see when you got to the other side. We walked up an extremely steep hill to walk down a main street and back down to the ferry terminal and that was it. About 45 minutes total on Levis.

Was recommended the ferry by a family member who had done the same trip because of the amazing views of old Quebec and the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. I was quite disappointed, I felt the views were nothing special and the weather was perfect, clear and sunny, the ferry to the Toronto islands was better.

The ferry departs every hour on the half an hour to Lévis and on the hour on the way back.

Once at Lévis I was told there is a park and places to eat and drink. The park was okay and there was only one cafe which was very expensive.

I felt quite bored and wanted to go back.

Adult return ticket was $7.40 which you can purchase at the ferry terminal.

So glad I made time to take the ferry to Levis and back. For $7.50 round trip, it's a fun and affordable way to see the city from a different vantage point. I did not get out and explore Levis, but in the summer it looks like there are some nice parks and areas to walk around there.

Reading old reviews, it looks like the ferry used to run every half hour but currently it is every hour. The ferry from Quebec to Levis departs on the 30 and the ferry from Levis to Quebec departs on the 00. I recommend taking the 4:30pm ferry over and catching the 5:00pm back, if you are here in the winter because it coincides with the sunset. The actual ferry ride is about 15 minutes and you can't stay on the boat, you must disembark at Levis. So I just got off, waited in the terminal for 10-15 minutes and then walked back on.

You can reserve a ticket online in advance but it wasn't near full when I went. I just showed up at the terminal a few minutes before and bought my ticket at the desk.

At the terminal and on the ferry, there are vending machines in case you want a drink or a snack.

It is a commuter ferry and when I went I think I was the only tourist (or at least, no one else was taking photos and most people chose to sit inside because it was cold!).

Riding this ferry in the winter is a really unique experience because you can see and hear the ship makes its way across the chunks of ice on the river. There is nothing like it!
