One of Quebec’s best-kept secrets is the ferry ride to the town of Levis (directly across the St. Lawrence River) and the spectacular view of the city. Located at the heart of Old Québec, the roundtrip takes about 45 minutes. Daily year-round 6 a.m.-2:20 a.m.

This is a great way to see the entire view of the chateau together with the port. The only disappointment is that there's nothing interesting at Levis side near the ferry terminal. Suggestion, take the ferry in the morning or at sunset time. In the...More

We took our bikes on the ferry to Levis, rode up the considerable hill to the town center and had some excellent chocolate-dipped ice cream, then returned to Quebec City, all in about 2 hours. Although the crossing is only about 10 minutes, allow 25...More

Wanted to get some evening/night pictures of Vieux Quebec lit up at night and the Levis Ferry is the best way to do that. It can get a bit noisy so not great for movies, but we were fortunate enough to have a full moon...More

We left the Quebec City side with a crowd on a Sunday afternoon. Need to watch when the time changes the frequency of the ferry's return from Levis across the Saint Lawrence. There is limited activity at the base of the Levis cliff. For those...More

We rode the ferry over and back just for the experience, and the view of Old Quebec (Le Chateau Frontenac) from the opposite side of the river. Round-trip cost for seniors was $6.00 CAD, which was well worth it. If one desires, daunting steps can...More

This is like being in New York and taking the Staten Island Ferry as this ferry crosses the river and offers incredible city views that are just not available any other way.

By taking this very cheap and quick ferry over to Levis, one will get the absolute best overall views of the most photoed hotel in the world - the famed Chateau Frontenac - and Old Quebec. The views are especially spectacular at nighttime with all...More

We stayed 1 night in Levis and took the ferry across to Quebec for dinner. Views during the day were great - at night, spectacular. Lots of people took the ferry after dark as a round trip just for the views of Old Quebec!

Loved the spectacular views of the Quebec City from the ferry. Definitely a must do for all the visitors to Quebec City. If you can ride the ferry during the evening hours when the sun is setting the views are even more beautiful.

A google search of the ferry shows prices from $8.40-$16.50 depending on the size of your vehicle. That includes the driver but I believe each additional person in the car pays. Google will lead you to the website for a more... More
