Full description
Board your superb 16-meter sailing catamaran at the old harbor of La Rochelle. After the welcome briefing, you will cross La Rochelle Bay admiring the Richelieu Tower and the Sailing Harbour of Les Minimes.

Once outside the channel, the crew will establish the sails and direct the catamaran through the islands to the legendary Fort Boyard. Sit back and enjoy the views or eat your picnic if you brought one with you. Once at the Fort, you will sail around it, trying to approach it as much as possible in order to get the best views and photo opportunities. 

On the way back, relax in the big trampolines under the sky. Enjoy the smooth rocking from the sea. Have a chat with the crew to learn more about the local landscapes, the history, or the boat.

Arrive back at the dock 4 hours after departure with a head full of memories and a photo album full of wonderful pictures.
