Life to cruise by on a canal boat!

where to cruise?

The most famous cruising areas in France are Burgundy and the Canal du Midi whilst Alsace and Champagne offer very scenic cruises as well. Less known but equally delightful, a cruise on small canals in rural Brittany will allow you to discover gem hidden away from the main path.

how much?

There are boats for all budgets: Price starts as low as 131 Euros / day for a traditional Penichette Classic 935 (2 to 5 persons). Our largest and most modern penichette 15.00 Flying bridge accommodating 8 to 12 people will cost 457 Euros / day in low season. A deposit of 40% is required to book and the balance is due 60 days prior departure.

how to choose?

Choosing the right boat is important to make sure you'll have a life time memory cruise. Don't get misled by the maximum number of passengers on board. It's good practice to limit the number of guests on board to the number of permanent berths in cabins and avoid using the convertible folding table as additional sleeping area. We know our boats well, we will help you selecting the perfect boat.

when to book?

It is essential to book well ahead of time to get the boat you want. We accept booking up to a year ahead of cruising. We look forward to welcoming you on board.
