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.

was a good

Didn't enjoy much as the weather pushed us inside the cabins from our deck seats. the trip was informative and bistro served good dishes for satisfying the hunger pangs on a river.

Fast and Fabulous
Jul. 2020
It is such a pleasant experience for our family as we travel to Levis often to visit family there. We either drive or ride our bikes which is even more fun! there is a water splash park right near the Ferry terminal with Food trucks so we can come for an early dinner before heading back on the Ferry.

Awesomely cheap fun
Jul. 2020 • Family
Family with 2 toddlers. They loved the ferry in the open deck. Short ride (less than 10 min) and Debark/embark easy. Only gripe was when disembarking (all passengers must per maritime law), is there “really” a need for passengers (especially with reduced mobility be it handicap, strollers etc) to descend upper platform to lower deck and then do loop to arrive at same spot? Why can’t there be a machine scanning return tickets OR especially during covid, a dude or dudette with a scanner. Didn’t like this experience.

Plenty of hand sanitizers onsite.
I would NOT come to QC city and miss this fun ride.

Been a while

I used to live in old City and work south shore: I was taking the ferry twice a day to commute, either in bicycle or car, depending of season. I recommend all tourists to take the ferry since you get a better view of old Quebec on the south shore. Takes 15 minutes to cross the River in each direction and cost 8 CAD $ for the trip.

Gives you appreciation for the ice canoers
Feb. 2020
We took the ferry to Levis and back the morning of the ice canoe race during Carnaval. (By noon it's out of service because they moor it on the Quebec side and people pay to watch the race and drink.) Crunching through the ice flowing on the river, especially closer to the Levis side, makes you appreciate how difficult it must be to complete the crossing - and some teams do it several times! Beautiful view of Quebec in the snow coming back.

A highlight of our trip
Dec. 2019 • Couples
We visited over Christmas and taking the ferry across the River was a highlight of the trip. It was cold but really cool to watch and hear the ferry break through the ice. It was mesmerizing! Beautiful views of Quebec City also. The round trip took about 45mins-1 hour. We timed it right so we only had about 5 mins before the ferry left. You can find the price and times on their website.

Beautiful view!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
This was my favorite part of the trip! Such an easy way to get some amazing views. We went during winter - it was extremely cold (because we stood outside the whole time) but definitely worth it. We went at sunset which was the perfect time. It’s easy to get to, and the ferry runs every 30 minutes until well into the night. We used the ferry just for the views, and it was easy to get off and then back on when we reached the other side.

River crossing
Feb. 2020
Ferry every half hour during the day. Easy to use. Crossing only takes about 10 minutes. We stayed outside to appreciate the magnificent river. Have to get off the ferry at the other side - you can't stay on the boat, but you just go back through the turnstile to re-board.

Ferry to Levis
Jan. 2020
Levis was a big disappointment -- there's really nothing of interest in the town -- but the ferry ride over through the ice floes on the St. Lawrence was terrific, as is the view of Quebec from the water. If I had it to do again, I'd simply take the ferry over and back. Suggest you stand on the bow and experience the noise of the cracking ice and the view from there.

fantastic view of the city
Dec. 2019
The weather was raw and cold but the sun was out making the view of the city just what we wanted. We were amazed watching the ice on the river as well. Definitely worth the trip back and forth.
