Tour description

Duration: 3 hours

During this 3-hour excursion, you'll depart from Port d'Arcachon at 5pm to enjoy a memorable sunset. You'll set course for the banks, Île aux oiseaux, Cap Ferret and the cabanes tchanquées: wooden cabins perched on stilts, typical of the Bay of Arcachon. During the excursion, Thierry will introduce you to the handling of a 13-meter sailboat: how to catch the wind with the sails, control the direction of the ship with the helm, and how to sail safely. Once you've arrived at Cap Ferret, enjoy a swim oran aperitif. You can bring your own snacks, or ask Thierry to order delicious local products to enjoy on board: seafood platter, oyster tasting, regional charcuterie... Enjoy a breathtaking sunset. Return to port around 9pm.

The sailboat - White Pearl

It features 3 double cabins, 2 shower/toilet cabins, heating, hot water and refrigerator. Thanks to its protected cockpit, this boat can accommodate you on cooler days or outside the summer season.

Very pretty sailboat. A place, a sunset and a swim just splendid. Thierry, a pleasant, discreet person, with a smile, you can tell he loves what he does. A moment to be repeated.
