This is a great way to see the city outside of the city. Historical perspective takes on additional significance of those whose river actions shaped the history of Quebec. Geographical perspectives unseen from land interesting. I would do this tour again and again when visiting the city. It is relaxing and interesting.

We had an excellent guide on our boat cruise. He was dressed in costume, was very knowledgeable on the history and geography of the area, and spoke clearly throughout the entire cruise as he pointed out the many highlights of the Quebec City coastline. The staff on the boat were very friendly and courteous as well. We be would highly recommend this cruise to others.

Great overview of the area!

Wonderful views and good overall history of the area. Staff were all helpful especially for the elderly and disabled. Sitting options outside and inside all offer clear views of the trip. The guide was clear and thorough in his narrative. Great way to get your bearings in Quebec City and surrounding area.
