The ferry was easy to board and a nice ride across the river. We did see a few beluga whales and a minke whale in the distance. It was also easy to drive off the ship. We arrived about 20 minutes early and were nervous...More

We enjoyed our crossing. The ship was very comfortable with plenty of seating, a lounge and a small restaurant. We arrived about 30 minutes before the scheduled departure and parked in line. Soon an agent began walking the line, giving each car a ticket. You...More

The ferry is a means of transportation. You may be lucky to see cetecean but don't count on it Get a ticket and pay the fare onboard during the crossing. Seating inside and out. Basic service.

On this ferry we saw Belugas, Humpbacks, Orcas, Dolphins and many others. A complete success by the captain. Yes it is cold, but with the view you almost forget. This was an amazing sightseeing adventure.

We took this 65-minute crossing from Riviere-du-Loup to Saint-Simeon in order to approach Quebec City through the more scenic north side of the Saint Laurent. Beautiful views and whales--many pilot whales and even a beluga. Worth it. Lots of pedestrian travelers.

Although the highway (#20) from Riviere du Loup to Quebec City is faster on the south side, it is rather boring compared to the great vistas you will discover if you take the ferry and travel the 138 to Quebec. For a little over $80...More

Was enjoying the great view of the river by walking on the ferry dock and watching the waves hitting the shore.

We rode this ferry one way, from Saint-Simeon to Riviere-du-Loup. We chose it because we preferred not to take one further east that would have been a 2-1/2 hr ride. We arrived just in time for a scheduled crossing and barely waited at all to...More
