From La Rochelle: Sailing Cruise to Fort Boyard

1. From La Rochelle: Sailing Cruise to Fort Boyard

Get on board a sailing catamaran cruise from La Rochelle with a qualified captain and crew and set off to explore Fort Boyard. Sail through the islands as the wind blows and the tides rise and fall. Board your superb 16-meter sailing catamaran at the old harbor of La Rochelle. After the welcome briefing, cross La Rochelle Bay admiring the Richelieu Tower and the Sailing Harbour of Les Minimes. Once outside the channel, the crew will establish the sails and direct the catamaran through the islands to the legendary Fort Boyard. Sit back and enjoy the views or eat your picnic if you brought one with you.  Once at the Fort, you will sail around it, trying to approach it as much as possible in order to get the best views and photo opportunities.  On the way back, relax in the big trampolines under the sky. Enjoy the smooth rocking from the sea. Have a chat with the crew to learn more about the local landscapes, the history, or the boat. Arrive back at the dock with a head full of memories and a photo album full of wonderful pictures.

A simply incredible experience, two top skippers, we had a wonderful time. We're starting again soon with the sunset cruise and we can't wait. An activity that I highly recommend, don't hesitate, go for it, you won't regret it. Just talking about it and after showing a few photos just now to other holidaymakers we met at random, we made them want to!!!

The meeting place is easy to find. Possibility to eat on the boat (tables available). You can settle down wherever you want (nets, feet in the air, lying on the deck). After 2 hours of sailing under full sail, we circled the Fort and returned to La Rochelle. The two skippers were super nice and answered all our questions. A wonderful experience for the whole family!

Very nice trip at sea with the family, most pleasant in high temperatures, especially since the wind was there. Our guides were keen to involve us in the maneuvers, tell us anecdotes of the fort, both historical and current, and allow us to disconnect at the start of our vacation! On top thank you Pierre, thank you Jean thank you Jean Pierre

This walk was sublime. Both the setting and the staff were friendly, the guide was able to answer our questions and be friendly with us. The weather was fine and what more could you ask for when you have the opportunity to enjoy a small glass of Pineau des Charentes on board. I recommend !

Everything went well, good discussion with the managers on the boat
