“Great way to see the the inner harbor...”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Loved this relaxing boat ride. The captain was bi-lingual and kept the trip fun and informative. The electric vehicle kept the the ride nice and quiet. What a great mid afternoon break.

“Small, Open Boat with Personality”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were interested in taking a boat ride in the harbor, but wanted one that was open and smaller since the weather was perfect. Also, we felt 45 minutes was about all we needed for a tour, so we chose Le Petit Navire. We were quite happy with the tour.

The captain had a great personality and joked around with the passengers while providing an informative tour. Fortunately for us, he explained the origin of Cirque du Soleil, and that the new show was making its introduction under the big top during the month of June. Immediately after the tour, I walked over and bought tickets. It would have been something I would have missed if it were not for the boat captain.

They had water and soda available for purchase at $2/bottle.

“Great view of Habitat 67!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Just returned from Montreal when the weather was beautiful, ideal for a boat ride. It was a nice break from walking the city and the captain was informative, giving us an especially great view of Habitat 67 and the clock tower. We liked the smaller boat, which gave us the chance to meet a great family from China and an interesting girl from Texas.

“Nice Tour Without Large Commitment”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

This is a nice tour opportunity of the old harbor for those who don't want to be trapped on a large tour boat for hours. This tour runs around 45 minutes and gives you a unique perspective from a small boat. The Captain was nice and knowledgeable, and the cost was very reasonable. When you're done, walk up the hill to Rue St. Paul and round out the hour with some ice cream!

“Small Boat Ride in Old Port Harbour-Montreal”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This boat is an all electric, environmentally friendly tour boat that sails around the Old Port of Montreal. The boat accommodates 30 people and sails for about 45 minutes. The captain is entertaining and answers all your questions. The boats sails hourly starting 11am each day. There are great views of Montreal . The cost is $21 per person, less for children.

Look for Groupon coupons.
