We enjoyed the reasonable trip across to Levis just before dusk, climbed a lot of stairs and a hill, had ice cream and returned to see the lights of Quebec City from the water. It departed on time and was not crowded.

Spend an hour and get the best view of Quebec City. As a senior, my fare was $6.50 round trip. A single person with a car is $8.00, one way. The ferry leaves from the Quebec CIty side of the St. Lawrence every 30 minutes. You can ride the ferry across and right back. (You do need to exit at... More

$3.35 per person per way. Leaves every 30 minutes. Great view of Quebec City. Great bike path as you get off the boat. Go west for 15 km until you reach Pont de Quebec, cross the St-Lawrence river and ride back to Quebec City along the river on the wonderful Champlain bike path.

Nice way to travel to see old Quebec city. Just park on the Levis side ($8.00 all day) and walk on the ferry ($7.00 per person return) Awesome view of old Quebec city and beats the hustle and bustle of trying to find parking in downtown Old Quebec city.

The Levis ferry is an inexpensive way to see Quebec from the water (around $13 for two round trips). If you want any kind of description of the city or history, this ferry is not the way to get it. It's strictly transportation across the river and back. We did not take any time to explore Levis - not sure... More

An inexpensive way to take a boat ride across the river - and back again. Good way to take pictures and enjoy the view!

It's under $14 Canadian to get two adult tickets round trip. The ride took 15-20 minutes each way and we got off and right back on at Levis. Why do it? It gives you a great perspective of the walls and battlements and also some great photo ops AND it's a welcome relief from the crowds jostling you and the... More

This short 20 minute ferry ride is an absolute must to do in Quebec City. It just happened to work out for our travel plans to do it on the way out of the city, but even if you were in town I would go and walk on the ferry for the ride, I think it was two or three... More

It seems like most people get on this Ferry and back to see old Quebec from the water. This is what we did and it was well worth it. It's a short ride, easy to do with kids and a very inexpensive way to catch some great photo ops. It's a big ferry that can take cars if you're looking... More
