The Cap Diamant, or Cape Diamond, is the official name of the cape and promontory on which Québec City is located. It’s formed by the confluence of a bend in the Saint Lawrence River to the south and east and the much smaller Saint-Charles River to the north. Montmorency Falls is an 83-meter-high waterfall, an impressive 30 meters higher than iconic Niagara Falls.
Some of the sites to be seen include the historic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel, Canada’s most-beloved hotel and the most-photographed hotel in the world and the historical island borough of Île d’Orléans.
There’s also something to be learned on this live-narrated cruise. Find out about the history of Québec City, the Saint Lawrence River and all the aforementioned points of interest along the way from the enthusiastic, costumed guide, dressed as Louis Jolliet himself.
