The port of Quebec is popular for its cruise terminals as well as the other activities it has to offer. From biking trails, green spaces, parks and many other great activities, you will thoroughly enjoy discovering this part of the city.
The port is a beautiful sight to see, especially while overlooking from the Dufferin Terrace just in front of the Chateau Frontenac! With all the magnificent ships docked in the port just next to the oldest walled city in North America, cruise season in Quebec City really is spectacular. The Terrasse Pierre-Dugua-de-Mons, which is situated in the Bastion-de-la-Reine park offers an absolutely lovely view of the city, and probably the best view of the ships during cruise season.
Why not plan an afternoon or evening on the Saint Lawrence River, feeling the cool breeze in the summer air on board le Louis-Jolliet. Enjoy a guided tour of the river, and take in spectacular views from the water of the Old City, the Isle d’Orleans and Montmorency Falls. You will see a nice overview of the region, which will certainly tempt you to venture on your own to those fabulous sites and discover them further. This tour is a perfect combination of nature and culture. During this tour you will discover the history of Québec City and its surroundings. The cruise starts at Cap Diamant and will end near the beautiful Montmorency Falls.
If you are a photography buff, we certainly recommend a late night ferry ride across the river to the town of Levis. The views of Old Quebec by night are nothing short of breathtaking and definitely worth a toast while crossing the river!
