Trip just goes up and down the seaway and sees little. Money perhaps better spent on the cross Ferry at a fraction of the price. Time better spent looking at other attractions.

We enjoyed a private boat ride with Yves, departing from the port area and going as far as Montmorency Falls, past Ile de Orleans. We learned much of the history of the area from him. A great way to spend an hour or two.

We booked a private cruise with Yves while in Quebec City and had a great time out on the water. Yves was very knowledgeable about the city and the history of the river and surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see Quebec City from a different perspective.

If you are ready for a REAL boat ride on the river, we HIGHLY recommend your booking a trip with Yves Cossette and his RIB. We booked a private ride this morning and it was the highlight of our 4 days in Old Town Quebec City. You will never again be satisfied with being part of the herd of folks... More

Our entire party of 7 rated this among their favorite portions of our visit to Quebec City. Yves took us out in his Zodiac to show us Montmorency Falls, Orleans Island and the skyline of Quebec from the St. Lawrence. It is the best possible way to see it. Get yourself signed up for this fantastic experience!!!

We enjoyed an excellent trip on the St Lawrence River this morning in the sunshine. Yves, the owner took us to see the Quebec City Skyline and stopped to allow us to take photos. He also took us to see Isle of Orleans and the Montmorency Falls which were very picturesque due to the beautiful autumn colours. The Falls drop... More

We made arrangements only 2 hours before our scheduled excursion as the weather was perfect. Once on board the roomy Zodiac the proprietor ....our captain was extremely knowledgable and conscious of lumpy water where ever it occurred. His knowledge of the waterfront etc was far reaching and we had a great trip. If you like being on the water and... More

We enjoyed a private tour on a sunny Wednesday morning and found a great way to see the city. Yves was very friendly and took us up and down the river in the zodiac, a small but very stable boat which allows great access to areas you wouldn't be able to see without having your own. His knowledge of the... More

Our 11 yr old daughter chose this activity and it was a great idea! Yves gave us a private tour with a great monologue about the history of the St. Lawrence including some interesting sites along the river. We visited many different spots and he was able to answer all our questions. Fun time with the family, great trip!
