  • Wow, lucky to enter the lighthouse not to mention the view. The story of the Empress is to know. Almost ' as many deaths as the Titanic. A bit of the maritime history of Quebec. A visit to the submarine is to consider.

  • This is the tourist attraction to see in Rimouski. Great story of a little-known shipwreck. To see: Museum, the lighthouse, the Sub. The latter is really the most interesting attraction, we visit it from one end to the other with audio descriptions. That's great.

  • Fantastic experience, well done with audio guide in your language of choice. A well crafted experience to get to know life in a submarine. Narrated in a very accessible way for adults and children.
  • This was an experience not to miss! We took an overnight tour of this submarine. The tour consists of a guided tour of every part of the ship, and how life is on board a sub, you learn all the different stations,, and how to operate them, then they run through a scenario and some fun games. You watch a movie then its time to sleep on the cramped sleeping quarters. In the morning you are severed a continental breakfast, given your submariner's pin and leave the sub. Do not miss this fantastic experience.
  • Any adventurous person must visit the submarine. The Empress museum is very nice too.
  • When we went the sub was open . Was great. I will go back when the light house is repaired.
  • A really entertaining place, the only outside submarine of the Canada!
