We arrived to late in the tide cycle to go through the lock, so tried the marina on the river. It was full due to a rally, so we picked up a mooring ball across the river. Lots of tidal range and resulting current. So much so there is a power generating station just up river, using the tidal range.
Very picturesque city, with a strong Canadian connection. This is where Jacques Cartier left to discover New France in 1535. The Province of Quebec maintains a "Maison" staffed by students to attract tourist trade.
