Cruise the St. Lawrence River and see Montreal from the water on a sightseeing boat from the Old Port. Montreal can be clogged with traffic during busy hours, but trading ground transport for a river cruise avoids those crowded streets and sidewalks. You’ll have great views of the Montreal waterfront, spotting the Jacques Cartier Bridge, Montreal Olympic Stadium, Habitat 67, and other sites along the way.

Contrary to some reviews I read we had a very nice time. Service was fine. Narration in both French and English was clear an informative. It’s true there’s not a huge amount to see but it is industrial pier area after all.

Montreal is weird in that the river is right there without many ways to see it. I recommend this boat tour if you like boats, seeing the river for an extended time in a comfortable way, and learning about the city. Logistics were very easy...More

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 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

There are parking garages within walking distance, and one parking lot where you can pay hourly. I would buy tickets in advance. We waited in line and ended up having to sit in the sun on the top deck in 100-degree weather.

We were outside on the top deck. But downstairs it looked pretty nice; it was a pretty well-outfitted boat, so I would be surprised if it wasn't, especially since people host weddings and all kinds of events on it.
