This two hour tour was great value with fantastic views of the dune and Cap Ferrat and the oyster farms. Very well organised and felt safe and well managed at all times. As we expected the commentary was in French, we understood a bit but this did not detract from the experience and we would definitely recommend

Very nice and friendly lady owner. We liked especially that our boat wasn't so full as the others! They do a grand tour in the bassin until the Dune du Pilat and just outside the Cap Ferret! It's a great way to see the Arcachon Bassin and the nice villages opposite, at Cap Ferret! It's 25 euros for a 3-hour cruise but its worth it! The commentary is in French but that's not so bad because you can ask for the commentary in English etc in a booklet to read it on your own!

A must do if you want to see the bay. Even though the tour is conducted in French and why not as we are in France. To be honest it would be very difficult to do in other languages as well as French. We enjoyed it immensly. Very informative with funny elements. Staff were excellent. 👍

This was a lovely Bostrup giving a great understanding of the Arcachon-bay. But for 3 hours the guide had many (perhaps interesting) comments - and never Change to a Small comment in English despite we had afsked for it beforehand. But it was obvious Thatcher the guide had almisser no English knowledge, and the reducer the trip from at guided Tour to a ferrry trip.

Madame Si l'accueil au guichet est effectivement réalisé en langue étrangère nous prenons toujours la peine de préciser que ce n'est pas le cas des capitaines à bord. Il est regrettable que vous n'ayez pas "entendu" cette remarque. Ceci étant comparé un circuit de 3heures avec une jonction océanique que nous sommes les seuls à proposer, à une liaison en ferry ce n'est pas le sentiment de vos compatriotes qui eux apprécient ne serait ce que les paysages découverts. En visite à l'étranger un petit effort s'impose !!! Je vous laisse le soin de la traduction.

Although slightly behind schedule, Jalilo is very well - organised with very nice and funny staff! The explanations are in French (avec l'accent du pays!) only but extremely funny!
