Decided to visit after reading trip advisor reviews so so glad we did. Just out of the centre with plenty of parking alongside the river. Super friendly staff tolerant of out minimal French & happy to help in English. We took a 1 1/2 hour trip which gave the 3 of us plenty of chances to have a steer of the boat & we all agreed that if we go again we will do 2 1/2 hour and take some lunch. Brilliant chance to see the countryside and birds and understand more of how the waterways were built to drain the marshes. Great fun and so nice that everyone on a boat waves as they go past.

Excellent service. The owners of Marais Plaisance couldn't have been more helpful, and speak very good English. We didn't bother to book in adcvance as we were visiting outside of peak season, but that would probably be a good idea otherwise.There is plenty of free parking nearby and a handy Super U should you have forgotten your picnic! Three of us hired a pedalo for 2 hours and took a trip along the river, parts of which were reserved for non-motorised boats, giving us the chance to see many kingfishers, dipping and diving ahead of us, along with dragonflies and other wildlife. Would definitely recommend and would visit again if we return to the area in future.

Whilst this is not right in the centre of Marans it is only just a couple of hundred yards up the road and uses the same waterway as the other boats. Whilst the owner wouldn't budge on the price - 40 euros I think - he did give us a boat upgrade and extra time on the river so we got to do the full trip. It'd such a varied section of river that you don't get bored. Plenty of wildlife and lots of bird life. Herons, Egrets and a flash of Kingfisher kept us well entertained. A fun way to spend 3 hours of peace and quiet

We hired a small electric boat for a trip on the river. We had great fun, although the nap they gave us wasn't super clear and we ended up going the wrong way. Guess that was partly our fault though! Boat didn't go super fast but it was a lovely relaxing trip and we'd definitely do it again!

We visited as two families, 5 children and 4 adults, and hired two kayaks and a small motor boat for two hours. It was a lovely experience and we all had a fabulous time. The owners were ever so helpful and we had lunch on the banks of the river before we got our boats. I can’t recoomend this highly enough.

My family and I used this company to hire a boat for a trip on the canal. Highly enjoyable experience and very good service.

A very friendly welcome and clear explanations. We did the 2.5 hour tour which was lovely despite the grey skies. Next time we'll make a day of it with a picnic.

Very helpful team who gave us a river map for the boat tour and enough advice to find our way along the river.
The boat with electrical engine was in very good condition with life-west. The boats are large enough to host 5 people and still very easy to manoeuvre. They have thermal engine boats to as well as kayaks and pedalos.

You can wait for the next boat availability as they have a little snack house next to the rental, but is better to book in advance.
I advise to do the tour early in the morning or end of afternoon that gives even nicer views and wildlife is more active.

The tour is extremely interesting with beautiful landscape and wildlife along the river banks.

Beautiful area to explore by boat and extremely helpful team. 2 hour journey on a pedalo along peaceful rivers full of lovely sights and nature. Saw 4 kingfishers - and never seen any in the wild before. Team spoke excellent English and gave us sound advice on which route to take. Pedalo was very robust and spacious for a family of 4 enabling us to easily change 'drivers' and picnic on the boat. Lovely day out and would strongly recommend it. Other boat types available - with motors, kayaks, canoes.

We rented a boat for 8 to 10 people for a two-hour trip. Very nice experience. A very friendly welcome. I recommend 👍
