What if one of the solutions to escape the summer heat was to have a feast aboard a bateau-mouche? Sail on the St. Lawrence River while enjoying a table d'hôte and watching the sunset over the city. Any occasion is good to go on a cruise and it gives you another point of view on Montreal. It is strongly recommended to book in advance.

Besides being a beautiful Marina, its location on the St. Lawrence River with a view of Montreal makes it unique. The terrace is on a beach with picnic tables and a refreshing menu to fight the hot days. We let ourselves be tempted by the lobster guédille, the cod taco, or good poutine. A place that makes us forget the proximity of the city!
