Getting to Québec by plane
 

By boat

Sailors from Europe get to Québec via the Gulf of St. Lawrence. During sailing season, some 2,000 pleasure craft of every kind use the St. Lawrence Seaway. These vessels must measure at least 6 m (20 ft.) in length and weigh more than 900 kg (1,984 lbs.). Docks and berthing areas are reserved for their use.

International cruises

Québec, Montréal and Saguenay are favourite stopovers for the major cruise lines that sail the St. Lawrence from May through November. Nine ports of call in Québec welcome passengers who set off from Southampton or Dover to discover the mighty river.
