    A great place to go with the family. The staff at both the boats and bar were friendly and helpful. The larger boat worked well for our family of four, including two small kids. Maneuvering was not too difficult except in some places were the low water level made things a little narrower than usual. I would also note that we were happy to have arrived early, since it can be somewhat exposed on the boat and we were able to miss the more intense afternoon heat. The scenery was pleasant, the ride relaxing and the post-trip beer very tasty!

    A super-friendly introduction to the Marais, its flora and fauna. The hire of a barque is good value and the trip around the canals lasts about an hour (more if you are slow paddling). We saw black kites and storks, as well as lots of tree-lined waterways. Away from the crowd, there was complete silence. Well worth the trip.

    Great " Craic " for a group or just two people . Very safe and well run . Very nice going around the mini canals . Life jackets provided ( I'd say they are rarely if ever used it's that safe ) . Nice little cafe / bar on site . Loads of parking .

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by jennypNl1705 on 07/08/2019

    Its easy to navigate 75 minutes of paddling through nature’s riches. Lovely on a warm day to just float along at your own pace and then enjoy an ice cream or sandwich. Children didn’t get bored...

    2 / 5 Reviews posted by AJD1975 on 22/07/2019

    The canals are not clean and full of mud. You might see some animals and there are signs describing typical flora and fauna. Most of the parcours is not tree covered like what you would expect in...
