Wonderful way to see the Camargue from a different perspective. Crew is nice and friendly. Water a bit choppy while in open sea and heading in/out of river. Lovely stop for closeup view of horses and bulls. Ride is 1.5 hours - perfect length for a visit. Commentary is in French and they hand out text in various languages. Get to the dock ahead of time to buy tix and hop on early to get seats on top level or up front. Overall very enjoyable.

There are many boats to choose from but the timings of this one worked well. Not too big, plenty of room for everyone to take in the views. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Commentary cards in many languages which was helpful if you could not understand or hear the french commentry too clearly. Saw bulls, white horses and some wildlife. The horses which came down to meet the boat with a woman on a horse, was clearly choreographed, but was nevertheless very charming. Lovely way to spend a couple of relaxing hours on the Camargue.

A well run, safe boat trip by knowledgeable staff keen show and inform people about the Camargue and Petit Rhone. French commentary but detailed sheets also available in several languages, including English. The close up view of white horses and bulls part way through the trip was staged but interesting. If you are interested in birds, bring your binoculars and sit on the top deck. We saw kingfishers, gulls, cormorants, egrets, mallard, swans, stilts, an osprey and (distant) flamingos. As this is a very popular trip, I recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes before sailing in order to secure an outside seat, preferably on the top deck or at the bow.

We chose this company as they include a close up of some bulls and horses on the river bank, unlike the other one. Trip was interesting with English written translation of the French commentary. Boat can be busy so arrive on time to claim the seat you want or early /late trip could be quieter. Good value for money.

A very nice visit with Le Camargue, after about 10 mn on the Mediterranee, we went on the Rhone river where we could see birds, bulls, horses, fishermen showing their latest catch. Very friendly crew narrating during the whole excursion. Approximately an hour and a half cruise that I definitely recommend doing.
