Activity description :

If you love cruising and boats, don't hesitate to book this lovely excursion on the Bassin d'Arcachon. You'll have the opportunity to learn how to sail on a sumptuous 13-meter sailboat. Thierry, your professional skipper, will accompany you on this excursion and teach you all about sailing.

The route - Discovering the Bay of Arcachon

Duration: 4 hours

During your morning sail, you'll discover the surrounding landscapes: Cap Ferret, the Dune du Pilat, Ile aux oiseaux in the middle of the Bay, the picturesque oyster-fishing villages of L'Herbe and Le Canon. You'll also learn the basic rules of navigation: tacking, sail trim, course keeping and more.

The White Pearl

You'll board the White Pearl, an elegant 13-meter-long cruising yacht, model X43 from X-Yachts. These comfortable, powerful boats are renowned for their speed on the water. Thanks to their top-of-the-range fittings, they can handle light airs as well as strong winds. Ideal for sunbathing!

You'll spend a wonderful day in the fresh air, in a picture-postcard setting. An ideal activity for a bachelor party or a family day out!
