The visit of the marsh and the discovery of the workshop

A unique river cruise in the Audomarois marshes and the discovery of the last shipyard

This is certainly the excursion and discovery most requested by groups!

On the program, discover the fauna and flora of the marsh and its history aboard a bacôve. The guide, knowing the marsh like the back of his hand, criss-crosses this maze of rivers with you.

On their return, everyone discovers the workshop where the escutes and bacôves are made, as well as the exhibitions.

Practical: this trip takes place in a bacôve, a boat that can carry 12 passengers each. Our organization allows us to accommodate up to 72 people at a time. This visit can be enhanced with a gourmet break (homemade waffle and organic apple juice) or a meal in our open-air restaurant.
