No need to have a licence or extensive boating knowledge to operate these small boats (5 to 11 people). Everything is designed so that everyone can enjoy them stress free. Sail with peace of mind and with respect for the environment at a maximum speed of 9 km/h on the 40 kilometres of waterways, between the basin de la Villette, the Saint-Martin canal and the canal de l'Ourcq. Marin d'Eau Douce gives you a complete briefing before your departure and proposes itineraries according to your desires and spare time. Filled baskets are also available for your aperitifs and picnics on board or by the water.

For the little ones

For children, a mini-port is open next to the boarding site in Paris to let them take the wheel. Over a 10 minute period, watch them manoeuvre ferries, police boats, and other fire engines… A real nautical ride where everything is planned for their safety.

A few kilometres west of the capital, Marin d'Eau Douce has also settled in Meaux, on the banks of the Marne**. Discover its magnificent cathedral, the Pâtis Natural Park and the Great War Museum. Culture and nature for a double amount of pleasure!
