From the Port of Saint Cast, sail for a day to the Chausey archipelago or Saint-Malo
Your professional skipper will take you for a voyage on board his yacht. A way to discover the pleasures of the sea for novices, or for confirmed sailors to live out their passion.
Departure time for this day is fixed at 09:30. Your professional skipper will welcome you at the Saint-Cast marina.
You will then set off for an unforgettable day exploring the Emerald Coast.
As a first step, your captain will explain the safety rules at sea. You will then depart for a day of sailing. Your captain will be able to guide you through the history of Saint-Malo, and tell you about sea birds, or about fishing and oyster farming.
If the weather and the tide allow it, you will head towards Normandy's Chausey archipelago. Allow about 3 hours of navigation. Lunch at anchor is provided.
Located off the bay of Mont Saint Michel, this archipelago a classified site where nature is protected. Consisting of a large main island, 365 islands at low tide and 52 at high tide, it is the largest archipelago in Europe!
Did you know? Formerly exploited for its granite, stone from the archipelago was used to build the famous Abbey of Mont Saint Michel, rebuild Saint Malo, and even pave the streets of Paris!
In the afternoon, you will undertake the return trip to disembark at 18:00 at the Port of Saint-Cast.
If the weather does not permit you to sail to Chausey, your skipper offers you another, equally memorable itinerary.
You will be able to explore the approaches to Lîle des Hébihens, or to sail around the Fort-la-Latte. This legendary castle, classified as a historic monument, looks out over the sea at Cap Fréhel. Built in the 13th century, it is impressive both in size and history.
You will then pass by Cap Fréhel, a point of pink granite plunging down into the emerald waters of Northern Brittany. Look around you, and you will probably see guillemots, razorbills or shags. Common gulls and seagulls of all kinds should provide you with a stunning show that you are not likely to forget. Cape Fréhel is home to a protected bird sanctuary.
Finally, you will sail around the former corsair city of Saint-Malo.
Whatever the route, you will enjoy a day at sea rich in landscapes, stories and memories!
Start off in Chausey with Laurent, a professional skipper, on a fast sailing yacht (classic 40-foot racing boat) or on a 15 metre comfortable sailboat!
