Full description
Start the day with a breath of fresh and salty air on a sailing tour. Meet at the dock, right in front of the two towers of the old harbor. Once aboard the 16-meter maxi-catamaran, the crew will give a quick safety briefing before setting sail.

Head up the channel, admiring the different landmarks of the bay such as the Richelieu Tower, the sailing harbor of Les Minimes, or the "end of the world" lighthouse.

Once out in the bay, the crew will unfurl the sails and stop the engines. Generally in the morning, the sea is quiet and few sailboats roam the sea. Take in the peaceful atmosphere, lie down on the trampolines, and let the waves rock you gently. Chat to the crew to learn more about the local environment, history, and nautical lifestyle.

You will be back at the dock just before lunch, after one last parade between the old towers.

Prepare for the activity

Meeting point

Please allow time to park your car. Arrive 15 minutes before the activity starts. The boarding dock is located on the Michel Crepeau avenue, across from the Médiathèque on the François Mitterand Square. Follow the pedestrian path with grass and trees that runs along the sea. Look for a footbridge walkway along and spot "Kapalouest", which is written on the door. Wait on the dock, the crew will come and get you.
