Owner description: One of Québec’s best-kept secrets and one of the most spectacular view of the Old Town. Located at the heart of Old Québec City, the ride (one-way) takes about 12 minutes. During summertime, discover the marked bike paths located on both sides of the shore: Corridor du Littoral (Quebec City) and Parcours des Anses (Lévis). In winter, the mouvement of the ice on the St. Lawrence River is truly impressing.

Just for the fun of the ride you can take the ferry and enjoy the view over the old city. The ferry provide an excellent point of view to take pictures of the chateau.

If you want to you can get off on the other side and head for the Corsair brewery, the offer some amazing local beer !

This is a great trip if you have an hour or so and would like a great view of the old city. You can also get off and see the little town on the other side.

What a great value for sightseeing. Even though the day was absolutely freezing, the ride between QC and Levis was pleasant. The Ferry churned through sloshy river ice - giving us an experience we've never had. Stayed on the ferry roundtrip and took excellent photos of the city.

best view of the city from the deck of the ferry. had a most pleasant trip as the sun was shining and there was no wind the day i went.

if the wind is blowing down the st laurence it could be a miserable ride.

We did a return trip on this ferry in December and the river was full of ice, providing excellent views of Quebec.
