This summer, come aboard! Experience a one-of-a-kind historic site by the river, with five restored buildings by the fountain on Paquet pier. Step back in time and discover the history of one of Quebec's most famous shipyards, which operated from 1832 to 1989. Meet the Davies, a family of maritime industry pioneers from Lévis, who developed the first hauling plan, and see relics you won’t see anywhere else in North America.
