  • Best day on our itinerary. Enjoyable and interesting cruise to Cap Ferret, lots to see on the way including the oyster farms and the shacks on stilts, and the sand dune in the distance.

  • After spending my first semester in University of Bordeaux studying Marine Environment, I feel like Arcachon Bay is part of me now. Its in my head. Anyhow, its amazingly beautiful and hosts so many species of organism. Loved every single second I spent in Arcachon Bay.
