Cruise into Montréal by boat

Arriving by boat or by cruise ship has become an increasingly popular way to get to Montréal. Every year from May to October, thousands of cruise passengers choose Montréal as their cruise starting point or final destination. In fact, close to 20 cruise lines with more than 25 different ships travel up the St. Lawrence River and stop in the Port of Montréal annually. In 2017, Montréal inaugurated a freshly updated passenger terminal at the Grand Quay of the Port of Montréal in the Old Port of Montréal. Meanwhile, several marinas host private vessels along the St. Lawrence River and elsewhere.
