Montreal Old Port Grand Quai – the New Montreal Cruises Ship Terminal


The Montreal Old Port is a popular destination for both tourists and locals, especially when summer comes around. It’s  full of trendy markets and restaurants, in addition to offering a variety of activities for people of all ages to the point that sometimes it’s easy to forget that it serves the actual purpose of a ship terminal!

The Montreal cruises terminal is newly renovated and revealed, showing off part of Alexandria Pier’s $78 million upgrade!

The first major step in the process of remodeling the pier is the name change. It is now known as the Grand Quai du Port de Montreal or Grand Quay, in English.

The Grand Quai includes a green roof with a water view, a promenade with lounge chairs and picnic tables, and a wonderful play area for kids!

The next phase in the remodeling process is set for a Summer 2021 opening and will bring an observation tower to the Grand Quai. Last year, the Montreal Old Port saw 114,000 passengers and 50 cruise ships docking.

The expectations for this year are set at 130,000 cruise ship passengers!
