The Saint Lawrence River, called Kaniatarowanenneh (“big waterway”) in Mohawk, flows northeast out of Lake Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean. It forms part of the international boundary between the United States and Canada and forms a prominent part of the Saint Lawrence Seaway, often marketed as “Highway H2O.”

The Saint Lawrence River is, like many of the world’s rivers, a working river. But aboard a USA River Cruise, you can let us do all the work while you relax and take in the sights and sounds of this wonderful part of North America.

Take a look at our Saguenay cruise: From New York Harbor, cruise on the Hudson River through the Erie Canal and up to Lake Ontario. You’ll visit beautiful Kingston, New York, and watch as the Grande Caribe’s retractable pilot house lowers for the canal passage.

Halfway through the cruise, the ship begins its journey along Highway H20. You’ll traverse the Saint Lawrence Seaway and see some of the Thousand Islands (actually 1,864 islands!), an archipelago straddling the border. The Islands are dotted with beautiful castles and gardens, so be sure to bring your camera (or camera phone, as the case may be). Later on the trip, you’ll visit Quebec City before turning North along the river to the Port Saguenay.

The cold, beautiful waters of the Saguenay are often home to the beluga whales, thought to be the farthest south that any Beluga pods live.

Finally, as is the case on many of our delightful cruises, your trip will include visits with naturalists who will hop on board to describe the region’s wildlife.

This trip features a fun “Bring Your Own Bottle” policy. You bring the booze, we supply the mixers and bartenders!

What else? Hmm, there’s just so much to love about our Saint Lawrence River Cruises. Contact USA River Cruises today to discuss the trip of a lifetime!
