The worse cruise, very unsafe

This was the most stressful hour and half of my life. These cruise operators are only concerned about making money with a poor sub standard cruise. This is the middle of the covid pandemic and the boat was over crowed while the operator tried to pack more people. Social distancing was non-existent, very few very wearing masks and was walking all over the boat speaking at the top of their voices so it was impossible to hear the tour guide. No efforts were made to have persons be seated or put on their masks. It was advertised that cleaning of high traffic areas was done frequently this was not observed at all. As a fact as I exited, with a still overcrowded boat they were piling on new passengers for a new tour. I could not wait to get off. As a matter of fact had the boat been at the location that I boarded I would have forfeited my payment and not do the cruise. If you value your life and health do not do this cruise.

Pleasant day activity

We had a lovely time on the cruise! Beautiful weather, easy to buy tickets online. The Tour guide lady was knowledgeable and bilingual. Was able to buy ice cream and a water on the boat. The tour itself was probably about 45 mins -had to go across and pick up passengers on Gatineau side and then drop off there as well after.

Nothing special for the money paid.

To be honest not the best experience we've had. Nothing special, quite boring, not much of knowledgeable... Lots of time spent on just drifting. We were disappointed because that attraction was not a cheap one and didn't worth it by the end of the day...😏

Okay

The tour guide portion of this trip was quite well done and we saw some interesting sights and heard interesting facts with a touch of humour. However, the boat ride itself was slow. It took a long time to get going and then went to another port to let more people on the boat in another very slow manor. We would have enjoyed the tour more if it did not drag out the 1.5 hour trip.
