An historic voyage on the canal

2019 Schedule

Welcome aboard the Petit Navire! This charming, electrically-powered vessel is silent, ecological and intimate. Let yourself be rocked by the tranquil waters of the Lachine Canal, enjoying the magnificent landscapes surrounding the waterway.

Slip back into 150 years of history and imagine the time of merchants who used the canal to bypass the fierce Lachine Rapids. The Petit Navire invites you to explore the richness of this historic site while experiencing the operation of passing through a lock.
