We were wandering along the waterfront, when we saw this boat was about to leave at 15.15 for a trip up the canal and through the tunnel. On the spur of the moment we climbed on board and settled in with a glass of wine and a cup of good coffee. A really interesting trip, and the owner has had a really interesting life on boats from childhood. Try asking her about that The afternoon trip does not include food, and takes about an hour. It is exceptionally good value for money It was magical, and brought us much closer to the Canal du Midi than we could have got from walking along the banks If you are in the area do try one of their assortment of trips.

Enjoyed fabulous 2 1/2 hour lunch cruise organised for a group of ladies, we enjoyed a really good lunch buffet, plenty of choice, excellent quality and taste and plenty of it. The cruise itself was so relaxing, the boat is quiet, smooth, the chairs comfortable and the route along the Canal du Midi from Colombiers to Poilhes is stunning. The trip took us through the historic Malpas Tunnel, Andrea is knows so much of the history of the area and the Canal. If you want to enjoy the quiet beauty and charm of the area, whilst enjoying a good meal and learning a little local history, don't hesitate to book this trip.

We went on a lunchtime cruise. The boat is easy to access and clean. Food and drink were excellent. The knowledge of the crew made it very interesting. I would thoroughly recommend this for a great lunch and way to see the canal.

What a nice afternoon lunch cruise. Andrea and Jerry are wonderful hosts. Jerry is a skillful driver and works the rear of the boat while Andrea man’s the lines, keeps an eye out, sets up lunch and does commentary for the front half of the boat. We were 4 of about 15 passengers and the only non-French speakers. Andrea with her excellent command of English did double duty on explaining the sites and history of the canal. Lunch was a buffet but not to be confused with bulk food. Items were tasty and beautifully presented. Pre-lunch wine, beer and other beverages were available for purchase. With lunch wine is provided. The Bonpas II is open air but it does have a cover which worked well today with sun, 88 F / 31 C and a pleasant breeze.

Excellent day on the Midi canal. Boat trip with buffet lunch and wine. Great hostess who speaks excellent English. Canal bit open thanks to the blight which is killing off plane trees Nice peaceful couple of hours . Highly recommended
