The bac blaye-lamarque is a very relaxing and effective way to cross the Gironde. It is regular, takes '30 minutes. The most negative point might be its accessibility for disabled people.

It is a typical slow moving transport, but very relaxing. Do not do it for its speed, but for the fun of it. Nice staff as well. Extremely French.

If you're just going for the day, leave the car in Lamarque and pay 2.70 euro per crossing as a foot passenger. The ferry brings you direct to Blaye and the Citadel in 20 minutes and on a sunny day the views are very attractive....More
