We took a boat trip from La Rochelle to the island of aix, which included sailing around fort boyard. Disappointing that you can not go onto the fort, but the boat company did tell us this clearly. The fort is an impressive site and the island of aix is well worth a visit on a sunny day

We took one of the morning cruises from La Rochelle Vieux Port to Fort Boyard and had an absolutely amazing experience. We took tons of pictures. Also lots of memories from when i was a little girl.

Was a fun day too, interesting experience also. My husband loved the tv show and he wanted to see more than anyone, we did not regret too and was very enjoyable. The boat tour was ok. I may advise people to look for better deals as our was not value for money:).

As a french myself, this Fort has been one iconic monument over the past decades. You are allowed to approach on a maximum of 200 meters, set by the Police rules! However, it is a monument that is incredibly respected among citizens and tourists..

We were attracted by our memories of the TV show form the late 90's and decided to go on a boat tour. We took a tour from the harbour by the two towers which included the approach to Fort Boyard and a stop on Ile d'Aix. This is a great combination. Apart from the TV show the history of building the Fort is incredible spanning from the 1600's to 1800's and an enourmous cost on for it never to fulfil its purpose. A short way further on the Island of Aix is beautiful and a cyclists paradise. It has a small high street with cafes, bars and shops in a tranquil and peaceful setting. It thrip costs E25 each return and a great way to see the sights. The boat is 90 mins out and an hour back with 2 hours on the island.
