Old Port of Montréal has so many activites to do. Suggest you rent a bike and just bike around. Than take the ferry with your bike on the Longueuil Ferry and take the bike trail. Just beautiful and its an excellent adventure.

I found the Old Port of Montreal and Old Montreal blended....but one adds equally to the other. They have done a good job of making the waterfront accessible to the public and drawing people down there. Parking is good; there is a lot to do; acitvities for the kids; on water activities available also. It's worth the trip

We spent time in the shade along the water at the picnic tables. It's difficult to find sandwiches for takeout. And you really have to search for classic, European style supplies: cheese, bread, wine, olives - we brought ours from the outdoor market - but if you can, eat lunch at the tables. It's lovely.

We ended up there while we explored Old Montreal and it was one of those attraction we have not heard about and were reay impressed and happy that we've seen it! We also did the ferry to the island and it was great. Not expensive, so affordable and we really enjoyed the atmosphere in St. Helene! Worth a visit :)

This is almost as much fun as the far more expensive river cruise we took. Clean and nice. Immediately adjacent to Vieux Montreal.

If you live on the south shore (and not only) this is a great ferry ride, inexpensive, not too long and not too short, you leave the car in parking lot in Longueuil and go downtown for a stroll or visit an attraction without the car or traffic. A great idea is to stop on St Helene island, half way---... More

Good for a walk. Nice points to stop and drink a coffee, attention for the SPA. It's a such nice experience, just book one day before and enjoy the experience. I visited in winter, so the hot outside pool was an amazing experience.

It was an extraordinary day my family and friends. So many souvenir shops, restaurants and many other interesting places. It is worth to spend the whole day in this wonderful place.

I enjoy strolling park-like Ile St.-Helene and the remaining Expo sites, and taking pictures of the Montreal skyline, then boarding the ferry for the short but sparkling trip across the St, Lawrence to the Old Port. I stay on the south shore when I visit, come half-way on the Metro, enjoy the park, then ferry over. Relaxing, inexpensive way to... More
