During the sunset you get a great view of the city and the floating ice makes for a unique experience. Going to the top of the ferry gives you the best views, be careful of ice on the floor.

Its a nice way to get a few great shots of Old Quebec from the water. Other than that, if you wanted to explore Levis, its easier to drive your vehicle over, park and explore.

very cool to go across and watch the ferry break up the ice. Saw a few boats portaging. Amazing to see these guys running across the ice and then jumping back into their boats. A tip. At the other end you have to take either a bus or a taxi. It is a huge hill you cant walk up it.... More

Take the ferry over to Levis to get a magnificent view of Old Quebec dominated by the Chateau Frontenac. It will also give yoou an idea of just how strong the current is in the river - especially if there are still ice flows on it.

The river was almost completely frozen so taking the ferry was quite the site to behold. Amazing to travel through all that ice, and the views were spectacular! $6.70 for an adult round trip. Takes about 10 minutes or so to cross. Not much to see in Lévis in the other side. Well worth the price for the view and... More

the ferry is clean , cheap and on time. great way to view the old city from afar. the only draw back is there is nothing to see in Levi , the port area is kind of dull . It does have great stairs for you to climb if you are on foot , good for working up an appetite,

For a nominal fee you can cross the St Lawrence and looking back catch those magnificent classic views of the City of Quebec. In summer a pleasent round trip, in winter get ready for the coldest ever experience as it crosses through the ice.

Watching this thing break through the river ice was very cool and worth the trip. It was quite surreal.
