Great customer service, good food and beer to make crossing the river really part of the travel instead of being a burden like in so many other places.

This ferry company was very efficient, and the trip was easy. A reservation is required, but you pay on board during the crossing. During the 90-minute trip, we saw whale spouts and some beluga whales. It was a fun way to travel.

On our crossing, we saw beluga whales, harbor porpoises, and minke (?) whales. It is about a 1.5 hour crossing, so if you bring binoculars, you can see a lot of wildlife. On board, there is a café, small gift shop, and a seating area.

A medium sized ferry from which you can see whales, seals, porpoises, etc. The service is very friendly, and its a 1.5 hour whale watching trip in essence.

If the weather is good this is a wonderful way to view the river with kids. We had an exceptional day and saw lots of whales, porpoise and seals!

A small village by the sea. Excellent to visit to explore the country side and the St. Laurents river. Relaxing and idyllic. Some good restaurants and hotels in the area.
