Loire cruise in Erdre

An unusual underground cruise!

Weigh the anchor of the boat "Le Défi" to sail between the Loire and the Erdre and explore surprising places during a guided tour. Rhythmed by the guide's anecdotes, (re)discover the history of the Saint-Félix canal, the island of Versailles, the lock and the tunnel. Enjoy an unusual navigation with this partly underground cruise to taste products from our region: a Kerlann biscuit and a glass of Muscadet.
So much diversity that will arouse the curiosity of young and old alike.
 
Two options for this cruise: 
 
    • From Loire to Erdre : you embark on the Belem pontoon, on the Loire, cross the lock then the Saint-Félix tunnel and disembark at Quai de Versailles on the Erdre. Departure at 10 a.m..
 
    • From Erdre to the Loire : you board the Quai de Versailles on the Erdre, cross the Défi through the tunnel then the Saint-Félix lock, and disembark at the Belem pontoon on the Loire. Departure at 11h15.
 
The Quai de Versailles and the Belem pontoon are about thirty minutes away on foot, so it is easily possible for you to return to your starting point after the walk by strolling around the streets of Nantes city center. Both places are also served by tram and bus. 
 

Departure days vary according to the opening hours of the Saint-Félix lock as well as according to the tide times. Find them on our departure calendar.
