Boat trips

On a catamaran

Boyard Voile offers a day trip to Aix island, or a trip around Fort Boyard, on a cruise catamaran.

Ten people can board on "Tepee". This sailboat which is more than thirteen meters (42 ft) long has been designed by Francis Joyon.

On La Marcelle

The trips on La Marcelle, an old 11 meters (36 ft) long rigging boat, start in Boyardville harbour.

This former lifeboat from the Royal Navy is skippered by René. It will take you on a trip around Fort Boyard, or to spend the day on the island of Aix.

On a lifeboat

La Fleur de Sel, formerly an unsinkable lifeboat, will take you in the oyster pond, or for a trip around Fort Boyard.


Boats to the mainland

"Le Vauban", a small boat for pedestrians and cyclists, allows reaching the mainland:

From La Tremblade, "Le Balusot" sails to Marennes.

Water park

In the "Parc Iléo" of Dolus d'Oleron, families can have fun in the pools.


"Marais des Bris"

The park is located between the Point of Manson and the beach of Gatseau in Saint-Trojan-les-Bains. This former marsh is remarkable for its flora, especially the orchids, as well as for the variety of birds that have found refuge there.

A farm was installed in the "Parc du Marais des Bris" in the middle of the nineteenth century and has been operated for nearly a hundred years.

The visit to the park is free and guided tours are also available. The "Parc du Marais des Bris" is separated from the ocean by the Pacaud dam which was built in the late nineteenth century.
