    The pier was easy to find adjacent to Old Town and near our cruise ship dock. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for viewing the scenery from the open deck [there was inside areas as well]. The ship was a great way to see the 'St Lawrence face' of Quebec City and Ile d'Orleans island across the river. We had a creative narrator dressed in 18th Century finery who was very open to questions. It was a great trip.

    We had spent two days walking around Quebec city and seeing the sights. Seeing the city from the river was a very nice experience, and a whole new view. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Quebec city.
