Boat trips & river cruises in Charente-Maritime

Discover the jewels of the region's maritime territory

Head for the region's islands

The Charente-Maritime region has a rich coastline with some very famous islands: the island of Oléron, the island of Ré and the island of Aix.
Thanks to the Croisières Inter-îles company, it will be very easy for you to discover the islands from the Charente coast.

Oleron Island

During the crossing to the luminous island, let yourself be overwhelmed by the emotions of the roll. The journey takes only a few minutes. Dock on the island of Oleron and discover these natural gems.

Not to be missed:
  • Catamaran trip in the Oleron channels;
  • P'tit train de Saint-Trojan ;
  • Lazy days on the island's beaches.

Island of Ré

With Croisières Inter-îles, you will set foot directly in the centre of the island, in Saint-Martin-en-Ré. This is the ideal place to explore the whole archipelago.

On land, rent a bike to get around. Alternatively, take a boat trip around the island to discover it from a new angle.

Not to be missed:
  • The pedestrian streets of Saint-Martin-en-Ré ;
  • Photograph the donkeys in their breeches;
  • Climb the Baleines lighthouse.

The island of Aix

Less well known, but more authentic than the other two, the island is accessible by organised cruises or by taking the ferry from Fouras.

This corner of paradise cut off from the world will allow you to disconnect from your daily life.

Not to be missed:
  • The tour of the island by bike;
  • Beach days;
  • Capturing precious moments.

Excursion around Fort Boyard

How about a trip to see Fort Boyard up close? Even if it is not visited, you can easily find a boat and catamaran company to get closer to this mythical place.

Take a tour and observe the smallest details. Enjoy a romantic evening on the water with the fort and the sunset in the background.

Stroll in the open sea to the Cordouan lighthouse

Take a trip to the oldest lighthouse in Europe near the mouth of the Gironde estuary. It is accessible only by boat or on foot at low tide.

From Royan and its coastline, take the boat to visit the only lighthouse in the open sea open to exploration. For a moment, become the king of the Atlantic Ocean from the top of the lighthouse.

Gliding on the Charente

River trips in Charente-Maritime take place on the Charente. Much more peaceful than the waves of the ocean, the river takes you gently through the fauna and flora of the Charente.

It is possible to sail on the Charente from Angoulême to Rochefort. You can plan beautiful family cruises in the peace and quiet of the countryside.
