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 CAN, the ferry will cover a car and two passengers. The crossing is relaxing and... 更多

You must take this paper with you when you exit your vehicle and pay when you get on the ferry. It's quite exciting and sometimes the passengers have to get out of the car before it reaches it's... 更多
We were hoping to see whales, but no luck - still it was fun. The bad weather that had haunted us the past few days finally left as we made our crossing. The views of the clouds overhanging the mountains were spectacular. Although this is a French-speaking area, there were people who were able to direct us in English, so... 更多
