Taking this ferry was one of the ways for us to get to Gaspé peninsula and the experience seemed unique enough that we added it to our itinerary. The departures were rather limited. At the time we were travelling, there was one evening departure from...More

We had a wonderful trip on the ferry. Unfortunately, this ferry only runs one direction each day from each town. When we actually booked the ferry, we found out that the ferry only runs from Godbout in the morning at 11 a.m. to Matane, or...More

I have not been on very many ferries but this one seems hard to beat, the ship is about 1 year old and is very well run with great restaurants and comfortable seating. The cost for 2 people with 1 car was about $85.00 CDN....More

What a great surprise to travel on a ferry that really cares about the comfort of its passengers! Seating is very comfortable, spacious and abundant! Windows are everywhere and well situated. Dining has many flavours and seating is great and again plentiful with many choices...More

Not quite a luxury cruise, but I have high praise for the Quebec ferry system. My family and I took the Godbout ferry to Matane in the Gaspe and what a 'ride' it was. Everything went flawless. Long before I took this crossing of the...More
