Traverse Oka-Hudson 1

158, Rue Main Hudson Québec J0P 1H0

438-444-4419

With over 100 years’ experience plying the waters, the Hudson-Oka ferry is your three-season link between Vaudreuil-Soulanges and the tourist regions to the north. A 10-minute trip across the beautiful Lac des Deux-Montagnes brings cars, pedestrians, and cyclists to charming Oka, and from there, the Basses-Laurentides. Coming from Deux-Montagnes, Oka, or Laval, the ferry drops you off only a few minutes from Hudson Village, and within 15 minutes of the shops, restaurants, and attractions in Vaudreuil-Dorion. The ferry runs every fifteen minutes between April and November, saving you time, money, and gas as you explore Montérégie and points beyond. Take advantage of special rates for pedestrians, individual cyclists, and for cycling groups. Check out the ice bridge (weather permitting!) in the winter.
