M/V Louis Joliet, Quebec
Nothing quite compares to seeing Chateau Frontenac sitting on top of Cap Diamant as you make your way up the beautiful St. Lawrence River. During summer, the AML group offers different types of cruises on board the M/V Louis Joliet, named after the Quebec City explorer who became the first man to map the Mississippi River. If you don't have much time, you can go on the "Stories of an explorer" cruise, a 90-minute cruise that will take you up to the Quebec City bridges and down to the Ile d'Orleans ($28 for adults, with 3 departures/day). If you've got more time, you can choose to go on a brunch, buffet or romantic dinner cruise. For a different nightlife experience, you can also go on a Friday night dancing cruise ($13, for adults only). Just check out the Website to see which option is best for you, and enjoy your time on board the M/V Louis Joliet!
One of the best ways to learn about Quebec and its ties to the St Lawrence River is to take a narrated cruise aboard the M/V Louis Jolliet. Dinner and entertainment cruises are also available. Best of all are the views of the city and the river. Look for Montmorency Falls, to the left as you head downriver.
We were a group of Seniors (52) and we had dinner abourd as well as a cruise to Levis to pick up more people and then on to see the fireworks display at Montmorency Falls.
