I booked for a group of adult French learners in October. We only had time for a 2 hour trip but it was one of the highlights of our stay. Booking with Stéphane was easy and Yanick, our skipper, was friendly and gave us loads of information about the area. I would definitely do a longer trip again.

Thanks Martina! It was a pleasure to host you on board! Even if a 2h trip is quite short, it allows to ride all around the bird island and along the small tipical fishing villages of the cap Ferret peninsula… And if you wish, we could prepare for you an aperitive and oysters tasting on board. Hope we ll see you again for a longer trip! See you soon:) Stéphane & Yannik

We took a full day private tour and could not have been more pleased if we tried! Making arrangements with Stephane was easy, he was so accommodating and helpful! We had wonderful weather and a wonderful captain - Dennis. We saw all the sites, went swimming, had a picnic lunch - amazing Fruits de Mer. We visited the whole area, went for a swims and of course stopped at the largest sand dune. Yes it may be touristy but most definitely worth a walk to the top. It’s very impressive! We walked through a little village to top off our day. This day trip Is an absolute must do for the day if your in the area! You will it be disappointed! What a beautiful day

Thanks Meptrave l!!! We are so happy you enjoyed your day, riding on the bay of Arcachon aboard our pinasse! You take the choice doing a full day trip and you made the good one! A day with us allow to cruise aroud quite all interesting sites like birl island, Cap Ferret peninsula and of course the entrance of the bay, the sand banks and Dune du pilat, the largest piece of sand in Europe:) And of course we can make somes stops when you wish to... For your launch, we can provide some apéritives and picnic, or you could do it either. If you like osyetrs, we could stop in an oysters farm to taste some fresh oysters with a glass of white wine! We are proud to make your day with us a success:))) Hope to meet you soon again! Stéphane and Denis

We had a family day trip and Stefan and the boat on a warm sunny late afternoon was the perfect experience. By far the best and most enjoyable way to explore the coast and Bay Area and to truly appreciate the magnificent beauty that is the Bay of Arcachon and Cap Ferret. We can’t wait to bring friends for the n st trip. Stefan was the perfect guide too

I booked a traditional Pinasse half-day tour for a friends 25th birthday and we all loved it (group of 7). Coordinating and planning the trip was simple and all done via email before we arrived in France, with a text message reminder and pier confirmation on the day. The trip and our skipper where wonderful and helped us make the most of our time on the boat with a stop off to swim! We decided to take a picnic ourselves and they ensured there was a cooler with ice for the food and drink. I would definitely recommend this to others!
