Activity description :

Come and enjoy a moment of pure conviviality with Jean-Marie, a professional fisherman from Bordeaux. He'll take you aboard his boat to show you the banks of the Garonne. Afterwards, enjoy an aperitif together on the boat!

Course of the activity:

  • You will meet Jean-Marie in front of the gardens of the Cité des Vins, and he will take you out on his boat: "Les tontons flingueurs".
  • You'll accompany him on his fishing boat for a pleasant and original trip on the Garonne: this will be an opportunity to discover the river in its natural state, as well as hearing his account of his job as a professional fisherman. A unique and original opportunity to discover that the Garonne is as beautiful as it is rich, and remains wild and natural.
  • This activity is enjoyed in small groups, up to a maximum of 12 people, to make it even more enjoyable! You'll cruise along the Garonne on his boat to discover the local flora and fauna. Jean-Marie will show you the famous carrelets, fishermen's huts perched on the banks of the river.
  • Afterwards, you'll share an aperitif on the boat, and Jean-Marie will be able to offer you his specialities from the fishery: white prawns with wild fennel or pan-fried eels with garlic and parsley or fillet of catfish (optional). He will also provide a large cool box and recyclable glasses. You can bring whatever you like to share: nibbles and drinks (within reason).

To enjoy or to give as a gift, this cruise with Jean-Marie is a must during your stay in Bordeaux. He'll show you the Garonne like no other and pass on his passion for fishing. And don't hesitate to put your trust in his cuisine, which uses ultra-fresh local produce to delight your taste buds!
