Montreal Paddleboat Rental

Enjoy a new perspective of Old Montreal as you explore the waters of the Old Port in your own paddleboat, or ‘pedalo,’ as it’s known in French. A 30- or 60-minute paddleboat rental on Bonsecours Basin allows you to admire Montreal’s beautiful waterfront in a fun and active way. With a max of two adults and two kids, a paddleboat makes for a fabulous daytime family activity, or if you’re a couple, go in the evening for a romantic sunset ‘cruise.’

What You Can Expect

Montreal Paddleboat Rental

View sights like Bonsecours Market while exploring the waters of the Old Port

Your paddleboat rental starts at Jacques Cartier Pier (Quai Jacques-Cartier) in Montreal’s Old Port (Vieux-Port), where you’ll check in and hear a few safety tips before hopping in your boat and setting off into Bonsecours Basin. Surrounded by two piers and tree-lined Bonsecours Basin Park, the basin is a protected part of the St Lawrence River, so you’ll have calm waters and no boat traffic.

With your friends, family or special someone, pedal around the basin for either 30 minutes or one hour, depending on the option selected at booking. As you pedal, look for Old Montreal sights like Bonsecours Market (Marché Bonsecours) and Notre Dame Basilica (Basilique Notre-Dame). When your time is up, return to the pier to turn in your paddleboat.
