Cruise down Canada’s waterways on a 1.5-hour tour that sets off from the Jacques-Cartier Pier at the Old Port of Montreal. Enjoy panoramic views of the area as you go, and catch sight of Montreal Olympic Stadium, Clock Tower, the Montréal Science Centre, Jacques Cartier Bridge, and Habitat 67.
What to Expect
Meet for this cruise along the water at Jacques-Cartier Pier in the Old Port of Montreal. You can pick from four different departure times, so depending on which time you choose, make sure to show up about 30 minutes before that time. Boarding is 15 minutes prior to the departure of time, and seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please note that Bateau-Mouche is a smoke-free environment.
Bateau-Mouche offers exclusive tours on water inaccessible to other boats. Moreover, thanks to its flat bottom, Bateau-Mouche allows for smooth sailing, bringing you closer to the splendor of the St. Lawrence River and its coastline. 
Enjoy panoramic views of the Olympic Stadium, Clock Tower, Biosphère, Jacques Cartier Bridge, and Habitat 67. This cruise is guided by a local guide who tells you interesting facts along the way. Snacks and bar service are also available on board (additional costs).
After your boat cruise, get dropped back off at the Pier with the rest of the day to enjoy even more Montreal.

It is a big and luxurious boar and since it was a hot day need to stay inside the lower deck which missed from photo opportunities. But the staff and guide were good. It is hardly an hour cruise and not 1.5 hour as mentioned.

We really enjoyed our 60 minute your. It was great to see Montreal from the water and to learn some of its history. The tour guide did a great job and there were some wonderful photo opportunities. Highly recommended!

We took an hour long sightseeing cruise and sat below deck to take advantage of the air conditioning on a very hot day. The cabin was cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, the din in the cabin was deafening. Although the commentator was shouting over the microphone,...More
