The Bay is ‘
your oyster’.
Just choose the formula which suits you best,
boating professionals are at your disposal to help and advise you.


Dreams are just around the corner

It’s by boat that you will best enjoy the exceptional environment of the Bay of Arcachon. You will be able to sail past oyster farms, see the Cabanes Tchanquées from close up, imagine yourself at the end of the world on the Banc d’Arguin, discover  oyster-farming villages, relax between tides at the Ile aux Oiseaux or simply take advantage of the extraordinary landscapes. Please find some advice on boat trips below:

Rent a boat, but not only…

Whatever your taste in boats, you will be spoilt for choice. Pinasses, motorboats, electric boats… Arcachon’s boating professionals offer a broad range of solutions. The hardest thing is making your mind up.

If you decide that you want to relax, it is possible to customise a “cruise”. Discovering the Bay by boat with a skipper and bespoke services is also possible.


With or without a boat licence ?        

If you would rather discover the Bay independently, at your own pace. Rent a boat
and choose the size and type of motor which suits you for a boat trip or water
skiing, with family or friends. If you are a novice and you find the adventure of
sailing on the Bay tempting, rest assured, those renting out the boats have thought
about you. There is a broad range of boats on offer which don’t require a boat
licence (of which some are equipped with sat-nav) for discovering the Bay safely.
