Evening dinner cruise on the St. Lawrence River, Montreal QB

Our dinner cruise in July was an excellent experience, with a very fine cruise and dinner, with music. The cruise duration was 90 minutes with great scenery.

We enjoy dinner cruises in any City we visit and this one did not disappoint. We were a group of 9 and were seated in the front of the boat where the views were excellent. The cruise took us past landmarks, an amusement park, several beautiful private residents and a breathtaking sunset. Our meal was very good, which is sometimes... More

We had a great trip to Montreal overall, but the boat tour was the only disappointing thing. The service was great, and the staff friendly, we just didn't find it all that exciting relative to other activities in Montreal, it was expensive, and finally there just isn't that much to see while on the river.

This company has a beautiful boat! It's also a cafe, so it has drinks and food. We did not partake in that as we had eaten in advance. There was a tour of 50+ seniors on the boat at the same time as we, and about 3 smaller groups. The narrator, Rachel, was bilingual and did all her bits twice,... More

This attraction has the same name as the boat trip down the Seine in Paris but don't let that fool you. Of course, I didn't expect it to be like Paris, but I have taken boat tours in may cities in North America and Europe they have always been nice. There is absolutely nothing to see on this Montreal Bateau... More

The basic river trip is for one hour. There are also dining and firework opportunities at fixed times. The boats are comfortable with two inner decks and a small outside section on top. There is not as much to see on the St Lawrence as on other Canadian water experiences but nevertheless the informative commentary lends a lot to the... More

Last night we had a gourmet meal on this boat. Unfortunately, it should be in the restaurant section as well as the attractions section. The night cruises are specifically for dinner (you can't see much at night). We had the gourmet select menu which consisted of six excellent courses, there is a reasonably priced wine list. The staff treat you... More

The day started out overcast so we thought we would take a boat ride. Definitely do the 1.5 hrs! Well worth it. They serve drinks and food. The rude it self was great. Really enjoyed learning about parts of Montreal we don't see forum land. I highly recommend this tour!

The boat was surprisingly a smooth. It wasn't choppy at all which is nice for a motion sickness prone person. There were very friendly waiters always around. The service was fast but expensive. There was a bilingual commentary. It was painfully obvious that English isn't her first language but great effort and you can fill in the blanks to understand.... More

This area of old Montreal was setup nicely for special events. Unfortunately we traveled just after nye and nothing was happening except the ice skating. Cool space. Great views of the old city and the river. Nice park. Bet it would be amazing in warm weather months. Would be fun to grab food and sit out by the river to... 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.
