One of the best things to do in Montreal. Wet, wild and wonderful! Jet Boating the Lachine rapids is not only a local tourist attraction, but a symbol of the spirit, history, fun and adventure that make Montreal a world-class tourist destination. Quite possibly the world's greatest city boat cruise tour!

If you're in Montreal during the summer, don't miss this wild ride on one of the jet boats of Saute-moutons. Imagine a rollercoaster ride that lasts 30-some minutes and add to it the wettest you've ever gotten in a water park. Thrills and shrills and A LOT of water ! Our group was entirely composed of 40-somethings and we had... More

This was a great time. The rapids are awesome. The ride is a blast. The instructors are funny. All in all this was just a great experience. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five, recognizing that what I'm about to say is anecdotal, is that the windup is way too long. They have you get there... More

Well organized, reasonably priced (200 Cdn for two adults and two kids aged 7 and 10) and loads of fun. It is simply an exhilarating, wild ride through class 4 and 5 rapids. Our boys loved it!

Went there with my family. We sat in the front row. UNBELIEVABLE EXPERIENCE! The adrenaline rush and feeling how powerful the water is. It was an incredible experience. A must when in Montreal! Staff is super friendly and funny. Totally worth every penny! GO DO IT!

As it was our last day in Montreal we wanted to do something memorable and this certainly was! All the advice about bring a change of clothes was so true as we were soaked! It's truly amazing and you can't imagine that these rapids exist on the river. We loved it!!

You get soaked, but it's super fun. There was a bachelorette party on the boat so it's good for groups too. Good for kids too. It's a type of ride where all ages will have fun. Just make sure you bring extra clothes because you'll get soaked 100%! You also get a bit of history on the ride.

I mentioned this to my husband while planning our vacation and once I did, I knew we'd be participating. The preparations are fun and the guide does a nice job of going over the safety as well as having fun with the participants (and helping them relax a bit). We went on a beautiful sunny August day with warm water... More

I must say that this is one excursion where you get 10 times the amount of what you expect. It is completely safe so don't worry. The Lachine Rapids are caused by the St Lawrence River narrowing from 7Km to 1Km, going downhill, and rocks. You will be shocked and amazed. It is a high energy ride. They do a... More

It's a wild ride as you whip around the rapids and get very very wet!! Definitely a unique experience which one should try when coming to Montreal!

Weather was beautiful, nice and warm and this attraction is a definite must in Montreal. The preparations were adequate and the ride itself was uneventful until we reached the Rapids. The water was really coming in, almost like being out of the boat.. The waves completely soaked us and we couldn't stop laughing. . ! Great fun for all ages.... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
