Upon arriving to Québec City, a few people suggested I hop on the Québec-Lévis ferry for the best views of the city.
During the day, the boat leaves from 10, rue des Traversiers every thirty minutes and in the evening the ferry departs on the half hour. Some passengers are actually using the ferry as a means of transportation but the majority of people are making the journey solely for the view.
As of right now, each one-way ride is $3.25 for adults. I took the ferry ride in early July at 9:30 and the cool breeze was a great escape from the summer heat. Make sure to snap a photo or two to capture Québec City by night.
