The Québec maritime Blog
The ferries of the Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) allow you to visit several regions of Québec maritime during a single trip without retracing your steps. Enjoy a relaxing break from driving during the crossing and admire unique panoramic views!
A ferry runs from Côte-Nord (Manicouagan) to Gaspésie in just over 2 hours throughout the year. When departing from Matane, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence, you have the option of two north shore destinations: Baie-Comeau or Godbout. The trip in the reverse direction is just as much fun!
