Visitors to Montreal should take some sort of harbor cruise and this little electric boat will only require an hour of your day. There is also a longer canal cruise. There is commentary on the sights plus you can buy a drink.

We enjoyed the harbor tour with a glass of wine (extra charge). This a short tour in a quiet electric boat. Good value $20 for 45 minutes. The crew was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour for couples and families.
