Montreal Maritime Cruise
This 90 minute cruise on the St.Laurence River will give you a different perspective of the city as you discover Montreal, the river and its surroundings.
Departing from Montreal's Old Port, you will motor along the river passing by the site of the 1976 Winter Olympics and the Olympic Stadium.
Before reaching the islands of the Parc des Iles-de-Boucherville, you will then turn and follow the southern bank of the river passing near Boucherville. This suburb of Montreal is made up of several different neighborhoods including Old Boucherville, with roots dating back to the 1600s, the Quartier des villes et provinces de France, where all the parks and streets bare names of the Provinces of France, the upscale Harmonie area and several more modern areas as the city has grown towards Montreal.
You will also pass La Ronde, an amusement park located on Sainte-Hélène Island across from downtown Montreal.
Your cruise then comes full circle, bringing you back to the pier where you began, in the Vieux-Port de Montreal (Old Port).
Your boat is a four-deck vessel designed for dining and sightseeing and was refurbished in 2011. It can carry 800 passengers, and has bilingual guides, full dining facilities, a bar, restrooms and several outside decks.
