    What to Expect
    This Québec City sightseeing river cruise departs from the Chouinard Pier. Climb aboard the AML Louis Jolliet, a 170-foot cruise ship named after the famous French-Canadian explorer. Choose from any of the three distinctive exterior terraces or settle into the air-conditioned dining area. Either way, the views from the Saint Lawrence River will be breathtaking.

    Enjoy this entertaining and educational sightseeing tour of Québec City and the surrounding countryside, cruising from the Cap Diamant to Montmorency Falls. The Cap Diamant, or Cape Diamond, is the official name of the cape and promontory on which Québec City is located. It’s formed by the confluence of a bend in the Saint Lawrence River to the south and east and the much smaller Saint-Charles River to the north. Montmorency Falls is an 83-meter-high waterfall, an impressive 30 meters higher than iconic Niagara Falls.

    Some of the sites to be seen include the historic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel, Canada’s most-beloved hotel and the most-photographed hotel in the world and the historical island borough of Île d’Orléans.

    There’s also something to be learned on this live-narrated cruise. Find out about the history of Québec City, the Saint Lawrence River and all the aforementioned points of interest along the way from the enthusiastic, costumed guide, dressed as Louis Jolliet himself.

    A variety of beverages and snacks are available for purchase on board the boat.

    The distance is very walkable, but it is all uphill. It is probably a distance of only 4-5 short city blocks. You can take the Funiculaire du Vieux-Québec to help with the steepest part of the walk. Generally the tours... More

    I would say yes there is access to the main deck. However, it’s a ship, so passage to rest rooms might include going over a lip at doorways. Best to contact cruise line. It was a great tour, though.
