The Traditional Cruise

We tell you more about this excursion

Embark on a unique experience aboard one of our traditional boats and be captivated by the beauty of the Arcachon Bay. This three-hour trip will reveal the hidden treasures of the region in a friendly and authentic atmosphere. Sail close to the famous “cabanes Tchanquées” and Bird Island, true icons of the Arcachon Bay.

As you cruise along the Cap Ferret peninsula, admire its pristine beaches and fragrant pine forests, before stopping for an hour in the oyster-farming village of Le Canon. Take this opportunity to savor fresh oysters at one of our partner oyster huts, “La Vie Sauvage” or “Chez Yannick” (to be paid for on site), and soak in the picturesque ambiance of this typical location. Back on board, marvel at the majestic Dune of Pilat, the highest sand dune in Europe, and take in the view of Arcachon’s waterfront with its elegant villas.

Our traditional boat accommodates a maximum of 25 passengers, ensuring an intimate and personalized experience.
