If you by the ticket at the tourist office in the upper part of town adjacent to the castle and Musee du Dinan, you will save one euro (12.50 at the office and 13.50 at the boat dock). This is an enjoyable, if unremarkable boat ride down the River Rance and past remains of the ancient castle and the abbey.... More

Very friendly people running this boat. It's just an hour long trip, but we really enjoyed it and they made us so welcome. The commentary included the history of the canal, the barges, the lock and the abbey and was full of gentle humour. We were given laminated sheets with an English translation. Really charming boat trip going up river... More

Took a trip today and a very pleasant way to spend an hour, lovely scenery and great to experience going through the lock. Not a cheap trip at 13.50 euros per person. And the commentary was given only in French, but we were handed a written version in English.

We took a trip on the boat with large group of french pensionners and had a good time. The trip lasted about 11/4 hrs and gave us views of the River Rance that one would not normally see.

Having a limited amount of time in Dinan and wanting to see as much as possible I thought the Jaman might be a good way to see the River vistas. Turns out it was! I went on the half two boat just after lunch with an adults ticket for €13. The trip lasted just over an hour and was entertaining... More

Great way to spend an hour,not expensive. The two lads/crew were splendid and gave a commentary with enough English to understand the points of interest. Handout in English was supplied, plus historic photos.very relaxing with a song from one of the crew.

We went on the river cruise and it was good fun and a good way to see the local area. It was good to go through a lock as this is not something we experience in Australia. Very informative and although the narrative is in french there is written information provided in English.

On a nice sunny day this was a lovely relaxing trip up the river Rance from the Port of Dinan to the village of Lehon passing through a lock before turning round. After the hustle and bustle of Dinan it was a relief to sit and watch the countryside go by. I did not feel that the €13 paid was... More
