The cruise

From Port-Médoc or Royan, set sail for a weekend to discover the Gironde estuary with Eric, your professional skipper, who will introduce you to the wonders of the region and especially the Cordouan lighthouse.

Your possible stops during this cruise

Discover the magnificent troglodyte cliffs of Meschers, the delightful fishing port of Royan, and above all, in season, the famous Cordouan lighthouse (entry price included in the package).
You may well wonder: Why visit a lighthouse? This lighthouse is actually a historical monument. At the exit to the estuary it is one of the most beautiful stone lighthouses in France. Inside you'll find the king's bedroom and a chapel where weddings are still held. It is also one of the last manned lighthouses in the country. Click here for further information.
From April to late October, Eric also takes small groups on visits – he is a magnificent tourist guide who has a whole host of stories to tell about this royal lighthouse.

If you spend the night on board, you will either spend the night at anchor in a sheltered bay or in a port depending on the weather.
NB: this cruise is open to individual passengers but a minimum of two passengers are required for the cruise to take place. Cabins are mixed.

The Cruise :Je suis très content de mon week-end avec Eric. Le skipper et l’ensemble de l'équipage étaient tout à fait sympas. Je garde en tête de très bons souvenirs, comme la visite exclusive du phare de Cordouan, suivie d’un petit repas en extérieur sur le cockpit du voilier, au mouillage. Je suis plutôt novice, n’ayant fait que de la voile légère auparavant, et j’ai trouvé ce programme particulièrement adapté. En effet, la navigation dans l’estuaire de la Gironde permet de prendre confiance sur un espace protégé ! Un grand merci et avec plaisir pour repartir très vite !

The Skipper :On a accroché de suite avec Eric qui nous avait concocté un super programme.

We are pretty sure that...
