Who we are

The Port of Québec Oasis is a recreational tourism site at the Port de Québec that first opened on July 1, 2022. First harbour bath in North America, the project evolved out of suggestions from citizens. It is the result of a collaborative effort between the Port of Québec, the Société des Gens de Baignade and the non-profit organization Le Village Nordik. This organization also manages operations and programming of the site during the winter season, including ice fishing activities. Access to the Port of Québec Oasis is free, and the site is open every day from 11 am to 6 pm, from June to September. The terrace is open from 11 am to 10 pm.

Come and enjoy the terrace from June 12, 2024! The swimming pool will open its doors on June 22, 2024.


The Port of Québec team works in collaboration with numerous partners to promote and bring this magnificent recreational and tourism site to life, all while respecting surrounding communities.
