Set sail on a voyage of discovery on the St. Lawrence from Montreal to the Magdalen Islands!

This eight-day cruise operates throughout the summer aboard the MV CTMA Vacancier, beckoning passengers to discover the majestic scenery of the river and sample the culture and flavour of the islands.

After two days sailing down the St. Lawrence and hugging the coastline of the Gaspé Peninsula, the ship docks in Cap-aux-Meules, the gateway to the archipelago where passengers will enjoy a three-night stay. Package tours are available for visitors to explore the islands whichever way their interests may lead them. On the return journey, the ship calls at Chandler on the Gaspé Peninsula, as well as Quebec City.

From September to June, the MV CTMA Voyageur provides passenger, vehicle and goods transportation service to the islands.
