“OK if you get a window seat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

I took a trip on this cruise. I could see more from the shore. The seats were 8 wide all down the boat. Not a problem you may say but we were all inside with a cabin roof above us and the small windows were only accessible to the people in the seats directly next to them. I was in the middle, it was too packed to try and move about and I saw nothing. The person commentating was just giving me a list of all the places I couldn't see. A waste of time and money. I was pleased to get off.

“Interesting History; OK Cruise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Frankly, we took this cruise on the Croisieres Alouette VI to fill in time between a nice drive though the local countryside to see the fall colours and our planned supper. It was a very nice, comfortable 50 minute cruise on Lac des Sables in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts. Just what we expected. At $17/person it seemed a bit pricey but boats are expensive to run. The scenery was very nice but no different than anywhere else in the area. The boat was a bit dated but safe and comfortable. There was a head (washroom) for those who needed it.
The real plus was the captain's commentary. I did not realize the amount of history on this small lake. Lots of famous people owned homes or visited those who did (some famous people still live here). The commentary, in French and English, was very good.
I'm glad we took this cruise.
