We truly enjoyed our private zodiac tour with Captain Yves. Since we had visited the Falls the previous day by bike, he recommended and we booked the 90 minute tour west to the bridges. The weather was perfect and Captain Yves was very knowledgeable about many aspects of the geography, economy, history and current events of Quebec City. Great way... More

We took the tour on the zodiac. Was the first time in this type of boat. Very stable. The captain was a wealth of information and history. So pleasant Took us where we wanted to go. Never rushed us. We learned so much about the history of Quebec City. Recommended for all ages. Great trip.

We decided to do this tour spur of the moment and ended up on a private tour with just three of us. The water conditions weren't great (windy and choppy) but we still had fun visiting the falls and seeing Old Quebec City from the water. The owner and guide was terrific. Very friendly and full of information and historical... More

Learned of this Excursion from Trip Advisor, thank you. Captain Cossette was awesome, he is a wealth of knowledge of the history of Quebec, the fishing and boat building industry and just about anything else. My family (2 adults and 2 children) took a "private tour" with to the falls and around the bay. Scheduled for 1.5 hours, but lasted... More

We had a group of six, including a two year old and a four year old. It was perfect for all of us. Just the right combination of sightseeing and adventure to suit everyone. We had been to Montmorency Falls the previous day, and it was wonderful seeing it from the water side. A fun way to spend the morning... More

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
