“An informative break.”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

Located in Old Montreal this cruise is a great break if you need a little trivia and a perspective for what to do next. The guide was informative and conducted the tour in French and English, although a bit more information came out in French. The staff is friendly, the lower level is covered and air conditioned while the top is open during the day cruises and you can get some great photos. As anything tour related, it is not inexpensive so if you are good with a map and know exactly what you want to do you can pass.

“A most pleasant cruise”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

If you are touring Old Montreal, take a break and enjoy a 60 - 90 minute tour of the harbor on this lovely vessel. The glass roofed boat has air conditioning on the lower desk where you sit at tables and enjoy a variety of beverages and snacks. The narration in English and French is informative and the scenery is lovely.

This thing is such a waste of money. There's nothing to see except a fun fare in the middle - ie. You get to see other people having fun - and cargo boxes.

Btw the evening one lasts TWO and a half hours,so maybe the reviewer who said it was amazing (and lasts 3.5h) was from the company?!

“Nice break on the water.”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

This was a nice break from all the walking and sign seeing around Montreal. The tour was about 90 min and unfortunately I missed a lot of what was said because I was hanging out in the back of the ship by the engines and taking photos. But the boat ride was great and entertaining.

“Friendly staff, good food and great music = wonderful evening cruise”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

My husband and I along with another couple spent the evening on the Montreal Bateau Mouche for the dinner and jazz cruise.

Every person we encountered were friendly and helpful. The ship is surrounded by glass windows so you can see both sides of the ship as you tour the St. Lawrence. The food was very tasty and the jazz portion of the evening was also very enjoyable.

The chairs are a bit uncomfortable after 3 hours but this was very minor. We all had a very pleasant evening. I plan to play tourist in my city again next year!
