Took the ferry at sunset on a beautiful clear day. The view was great. Cost for round trip was less than $7. If you want to relax for an hour or so, try the ferry.

The boat trip was lots of fun, though they ought to do something on the Levis side to make it a bit more tourist-friendly. The views of Quebec City from the river are spectacular.

When you don't have anything to do, you can always take the ferry to the south shore and come back. It gives you a great view of the Upper Town, the Frontenac Castle and all that is so pretty in Québec.

Lovely relaxing ride into the city from Levis. Parking is reasonable and lots of it. Great pics as you cross the St. Lawrence river. Do this!

As we were staying in Levis, the ferry was used twice a day, every day during our trip. So by the end we were bored with it! Despite this, you have great views and the staff are friendly.

The ferry cost about 10 dollars plus tax to ride. The boat is clean and gives a nice view of the city of Quebec. Unless you have business, live or go to school on the other side, we saw absolutely nothing. So, we did not get off the boat and just rode it back.

Leaving every half-hour from Québec City, the ferry to Levis is a very economical way to see both cities from the St. Lawrence River, especially on a sunny day with cruise ships berthed nearby.

Taking a trip on the ferry to Levis is an inexpensive way to get a fabulous view of old Quebec. There is not much within walking distance on the other side but there are a couple of nice cafes by the dock.
