Families, friends and couples will find a charming array of things to do. Located just a short walk from downtown, the Old Port of Montréal is the ideal place to make the most of summer thanks to a wide range of activities: relaxation, discoveries, strolls on the boardwalk, delicious foods to eat… there really is something for everyone. It’s no surprise that this destination is a favourite of most of the visitors who come to Montréal!

Enjoy the Old Port at your own pace

Relax at the renowned Bota Bota spa: you’ll discover the marvellous benefits of spa treatments while admiring the view of the river from this spa housed in a repurposed ferry boat. Or dig your toes into the fine sand at the Clock Tower Beach, where water misters and showers are there to cool you off at any time.

If you’d like to explore the river, book a ticket on board the Petit Navire for a unique eco-friendly ride enhanced with historical fun facts. Would you like to see things from above instead? Then you’re sure to love the Grande roue de Montréal Ferris wheel – the tallest of its kind in Canada – which promises a memorable experience in the comfort of an air-conditioned cabin.

The quintessential family destination!

The can’t-miss Montreal Science Centre presents its featured exhibition Journey to Space, which will take you into the universe of astronauts; while at the IMAX® TELUS Theatre, 2 movies are showing: Superpower dogs 3D, which invites you to follow the trail of our most remarkable four-legged friends, and Great Bear Rainforest 3D, which proposes a foray into the extraordinary habitat of this legendary animal.

Adventure-seekers will find many attractions to their liking, including the urban zipline that lets them see Montréal from up high; SOS Labyrinthe, a maze that incorporates surprising stories about the Old Port of Montréal; and Voiles en Voiles, which features exciting outdoor adventures with a pirate theme.

Tasty eats and shopping

All of those activities are sure to have you building up an appetite – luckily there are plenty of places where you can grab a bite. There’s the Marché des Éclusiers, showcasing local products; Café Macchiato, where you can get a delicious espresso and gelato; and the Felix & Norton food truck, for a sweet treat.

And to end the day on a great note, a browse around the shops is just wonderful. Whether you’re in the market for an original piece of jewelry, an elegant summer-coloured scarf or any other item, you’re sure to uncover the perfect find!
