Boat and Ferry Travel

The Québec–Lévis ferry, which crosses the St. Lawrence River, gives you a magnificent panorama of Old Québec on its trips to and from Lévis. Although the crossing takes only 15 minutes, the waiting time can increase the trip to an hour. The cost is C$3.35. The first ferry from Québec City leaves weekdays at 6:20 am from the pier at rue Dalhousie, opposite Place Royale. Crossings run every 20 minutes during weekday rush hours, from 6:20 am to 9 am and 3 pm to 6 pm. At other times it runs every 30 minutes until 2:20 am. On weekends and holidays, the ferry leaves every 30 minutes from 6:30 am to 2:20 am. Schedules can change, so be sure to check the ferry website or call ahead.
