This 90 minutes cruise will make you discover Quebec city with a completely different point of view. It will first take you to the impressive Montmorency Falls and then to the picturesque Orleans Island. Finally, on you way back, you will admire the Cap Diamant and more one of Québec's landmarks, the Château Frontenac.
In 1759, General Wolfe and his army of 4,000 hauled 30 heavy cannons to the heights east of the cataract, aiming them at French troops deployed on the opposite side. The British lost the ensuing firefight but 6 weeks later won the decisive battle on the Plains of Abraham. One of the earthen strongholds they constructed survives.
