The St. Lawrence River in its most limited bounds, begins at the foot of Lake Ontario, opposite the city of Kingston and flows generally in a north-easterly direction about 775 miles, when its flood mingles with that of the gulf by the same name. Beyond the Gulf of St. Lawrence lies the vast Atlantic Ocean. The St. Lawrence River has its source in the largest body of fresh water on the globe, and among all of the big rivers of the world, it is the only one whose volume is not greatly affected by the elements. This river, which Sir J.M. LeMoine called “The noblest, the purest, most enchanting river on all God’s beautiful earth,” for miles upon miles acts as a natural boundary between the good friends of the United States and Canada.
Come aboard and relax! See the real Canada, the original Canada, as unspoiled as when the voyageurs moved up and down its waterways, as modern as the great St. Lawrence International Seaway and its spectacular locks and man-made canals. Experience the beauty and the history of the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers for 4 to 7 nights on a classic steamboat.
