We rented their biggest boat for a couple of hours during the heat wave - 3 kids, aged 6, 4, and 18 months, with parents and grandparents - lovely day, reasonable priced and a fun way to spend the day. We called in the morning to book, and despite the fact that we called before opening hours, they called us back and were very easy to book with - and when we arrived, friendly and helpful in both French and English. 10/10 would recommend and will do again! Boats were shaded, had space for a picnic with family and were very clean and ran well. The guys there gave us a quick plan for a route on the canl with landmarks to turn around at (pretty much go straight one way, turn around and come back!) easy for a novice to be a captain for the day. Would have spent the whole day in Vias if our littlest didn’t need a nap!

Hired a small boat for an hour, we had small kids so that was long enough, would recommend longer if just adults or older kids to get further down the canal. The staff were friendly, gave good instruction and lifejackets. A fun way to see the canal without walking or cycling. Would recommend.

Had a bit of trouble finding the place as the web site gives a basic map rather than address and as we were staying an hour or so away we weren't quite sure where we were heading for (and the sat nav took us miles out when we entered the given long & lat!) However, once we got there we were pleased to find that the wait for a boat was only an hour. When our turn came we trundled down towards Agde and then back up the river to see the clever lock arrangement at Libron. Fun way to spend a couple of hours.

I booked this for my wife’s birthday, the guys were wonderful from start to finish, even providing a bottle of bubbles for her special day.......tremendous customer service. The attraction itself is well worth the time and money. A wonderful and incredibly relaxing way to spend a few hours with beautiful scenery and some history of the waterways to boot. Thanks for everything guys, hope to see you again one day.

We traveled many of the canals in this area but we especially liked this section. You can do this by renting a belt or you can go in a tour with others. If you drive yourself take the time in advance to learn how to operate Your Vessel and learn a little bit about the etiquette of interacting with the Lock Keeper's. It will be very memorable for you there's no need to rush just take your time and enjoy the sites and the sights.
