Boat trips in Arcachon bay

Treat yourself to a boat trip during your stay at the hotel.  Several excursions and ferry boats are available everyday departing from Bélisaire pier in Cap Ferret.

Set off for the Banc d'Arguin, the Banc du Toulinguet or the l'île aux Oiseaux (Bird Island)... plenty of natural, preserved sites to visit!

Departing from Cap Ferret, take a boat trip around "Bird Island".  Admire the wooden huts on stilts, the famous Pointe aux Chevaux and oyster farms which surround the island.  Bird island is home to migrator birds and sea bass and is listed a natural site since 2008.

Some of the boat companies offer trips in a "pinasse", a local fishing vessel.  Departing from Cap Ferret you can go to Arcachon and visit the old fashioned districts from the 1900s.

Other boat trips are also available: a tour of Arcachon bay or trip to the dune of Pilat and the Banc d'Arguin...
