This is a great option for seeing Montreal's shore by boat. The one-hour trip is long enough and there are pretty good food options on the boat. There was a guide who was funny and knowledgeable who gave info in both French and English.

While walking in Old Montreal we decided to go check out the boat cruises. Fortunately, one was scheduled to leave in 60 minutes so we bought a ticket for the one hour cruise. The young man working in the ticket booth should have been the first sign that this would not be the best cruise of our lives. He didn't... More

The cruise was decent, although it seemed a bit short. Really only 50 minutes since it takes time to board and offload. I was able to get good city skyline photos. The food and drinks prices are terrible. Menu showed $4 for a lemonade but it's $5.29 after tax and included tip. Not worth it as it had too much... More

We had booked the 3h panoramic dinner cruise . The website is crap, and I could not chose the date for my reservation online . I Had to call , to book. We were four, and ordered one of everything. Chicken, beef, salmon, and vegetarian. The boat itself is beautiful, and the tour very nice . You can leave your... More

Booked the 1.5 hour trip leaving at midday. There wasn't a huge amount to see along the Montreal waterway and for the most part what little commentary was provided wasn't memorable. If you are just looking for a beer and some food while chugging along on the St Lawrence this might be for you, but don't go if you hope... More

I had hoped this would be more like the Bateaux-Mouche on the Seine in Paris. Although the boat was similar, by the time we boarded, the small deck was full, so we ended up inside under the glass roof on an extremely hot day. The beverages are served by waitstaff, so there's a gratuity on top of the expensive drinks.... More

I went yesterday with my husband and baby and they seated us in a nice table with space to put the baby seat and they were very helpful and of course the view was amazing.

We did the afternoon cruise. I enjoyed it but it is not an exciting experience if that is what you are looking for. It is relaxing and gives a different perspective. We sat on top at first but it got too hot so we went below in the enclosed area and it was fine. You can see just as well... More

If you go, line up very early as there are only a few seats on the top deck. If you fail to get those, you must sit downstairs which is overly air conditioned and extremely noisy. The audio for the tour was terrible - we could not hear a thing which was very disappointing. I suggest that the company invest... More

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
