Everybody can drive
Most of our clients are not sailor men, but mainly beginners discovering this new amazing holiday experience for the first time in their lifes. On arrival our team will give you all the information you will need and will be happy to teach you how to handle the boat. Our boats are so easy to handle that no licence is required.
Our staff will be there to greet you between 4 and 6 p.m. They will be able to give you all the information you will need regarding the possible routes, shopping and the local restaurants, as well as the places you shouldn’t miss. After a few administrative formalities, our personnel will carefully instruct you on how to handle the boat, the equipment on board and give you a practical demonstration. You’ll also receive all the documentation including a on board manual, a nautical map, and a blue book including all the technical information you should need during the cruise. By then you will be ready to start your holiday, as a true “captain of the rivers!”
You can collect your boat between 16.00 to 18.00. It must be returned to the base by 09.00 on the final day of your holiday.
Contact the Base Manager. He’ll give you the instructions to gain the access to the boat and use facilities on board for the first night. You will need to wait until the morning after to receive your briefing before leaving the base. Please note that cruising on the darkness is not permitted.
Travelling by car
Our bases have car parks where you can safely leave you car. Car transfers or taxis can also be arranged if you book a one-way cruise.
If you arrive by car and have a one way trip, we can arrange a car transfer to the arrival base. If you are arriving by plane or train and you need a taxi, ask to the base and take the opportunity to use one of our recommended taxi company, with discounted fees.
