Welcome aboard!
Lakes, meandering rivers, canals to navigate from one sluice gate to another, natural landscapes with varying moods, small villages and magnificent but often unknown monuments... River tourism provides the opportunity to discover the most beautiful landscapes in France and Europe, during enchanting excursions along the waterways.
No licence or prior experience is required to take advantage of this opportunity: After a short training course, you become the captain of a magnificent vessel. 
Onboard you can finally take the time to live life to its fullest and, at the relaxed pace of navigation, enjoy nature as it comes into view. You can pull up and go for a walk along footpaths and towpaths, visit the heritage that surrounds you or go and meet locals. You will rediscover the true art of living. Life couldn’t be simpler.
As the creators and owners of the largest fleet of Pénichettes® in Europe, we provide everything you need to make your voyage an unforgettable experience. Thus we are committed to constantly improving the quality of your sailing experience.
