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.

We took the ferry, pretty cheap, across the river. We got some awesome shots and stopped in for a beer at their local brewery.

Thank you for your comment travellingsinclairs! In winter, it's totally another experience with the ice forming on the river. We hope to welcome you again :)

Every half hour, for about 11 bucks (2 adults in a normal size car) you can cross the St-Laurence River from Lévis to Olwer Town Québec. It takes about 15 minutes and if the weather is good, it gives the best photo ops. When we...More

It is very well organized. The ferry goes back and forth constantly, so the wait is not long. The ride itself is short. The only downside is when you arrive in Old City, there is usually traffic once you disembark..

The best deal around. We took an evening ferry to Levis simply to disembark and board again for the ride back. Great views of both shores. Fantastic late summer weather allowed a jacket-free return trip and the breeze off the water was welcomed.

We stayed in Levis and the ferry was a very easy way to get into the Old City. Schedule is frequent, cost is minimal, and you get a great view going either direction.

We stayed at Place d'Armes, a boutique hotel across the street from the Chateau Frontenac. If you walk down the steps to the bottom of the escarpment, the ferry arrives and departs right there.

A google search of the ferry shows prices from $8.40-$16.50 depending on the size of your vehicle. That includes the driver but I believe each additional person in the car pays. Google will lead you to the website for a more... More
