Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Québec City sightseeing river cruise departs from the Chouinard Pier. Climb aboard the AML Louis Jolliet, a 170-foot cruise ship named after the famous French-Canadian explorer. Choose from any of the three distinctive exterior terraces or settle into the air-conditioned dining area. Either way, the views from the Saint Lawrence River will be breathtaking.

Enjoy this entertaining and educational sightseeing tour of Québec City and the surrounding countryside, cruising from the Cap Diamant to Montmorency Falls. The Cap Diamant, or Cape Diamond, is the official name of the cape and promontory on which Québec City is located. It’s formed by the confluence of a bend in the Saint Lawrence River to the south and east and the much smaller Saint-Charles River to the north. Montmorency Falls is an 83-meter-high waterfall, an impressive 30 meters higher than iconic Niagara Falls.

Some of the sites to be seen include the historic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel, Canada’s most-beloved hotel and the most-photographed hotel in the world and the historical island borough of Île d’Orléans.

There’s also something to be learned on this live-narrated cruise. Find out about the history of Québec City, the Saint Lawrence River and all the aforementioned points of interest along the way from the enthusiastic, costumed guide, dressed as Louis Jolliet himself.

A variety of beverages and snacks are available for purchase on board the boat.

If giving 0 stars was an option I would. We couldn’t find parking as where you would park for the experience is for whoever. Typically a boat waits 5 mins they did not and no one called or anything. We had friends get on and we selected and English guide it was not English which we are paying for as well

Hello, Indeed, we ask our customers to arrive more than one hour in advance in order to pick up their ticket, but also to give you time to find a parking. We sometimes have some reserved, but we do not have the exact number at this time for all customers. Moreover, this information is given in the guide: prepare your cruise. The information concerning delays can also be found on this link. We are very sorry to read that you have missed your departure. We will do what we can to better advise our customers to arrive as soon as possible. As for the bilingual cruise, you must raise your hand when the captain asks if he should say it in English, otherwise it is only in French. Also, if it happens to you another time on board, you can raise your hand or tell a staff member your mother tongue in order to correct the situation. Thank you for your constructive feedback, we will do our best to improve the experience of our next customers.
