What to expect

Embark on a most unusual, relaxing and informative cruise along the River Seine and the Canal Saint Martin.

The cruise offers you unique views of Paris. You will discover the grandeur of the Seine and the tranquil intimacy of the network of interurban canals in Paris: from the Orsay Museum to La Villette Park, you’ll explore the city from the water.

You'll be surrounded by darkness as the boat navigates through a tunnel more than 1.5 km long – a most mysterious underground vault pierced with several holes letting in the light. After this thrilling moment, you will emerge at the Port de l’ Arsenal where the Colonne de Juillet monument stands before you in Place de la Bastille, and where you will re-join the Seine.

An interpreter guide will provide you with lots of interesting information, an opportunity to discover more about the history of Parisian districts whilst gliding along the calm waters of the canal and the River Seine.

-a canal cruise commented in French and in English

Me abria gustado que hubiera explicaciones en español.
Los bancos de arriba tienen una disposición no muy comoda para visualizar al frente, te obliga a ir de pie y es mucho tiempo.

Ce fut une activité au top et surtout une découverte de Paris et du Canal Saint Martin sous un angle complètement différent et original!
Nous recommandons vivement!

Super promenade en bateau - recommandé! Positionnez -vous près de l’haut-parleur pour entendre bien le commentaire.

Un joli voyage de la seine au canal Saint Martin, 9 écluses à passer, le volume sonore du commentateur n'était pas suffisant pour écouter ses explications lorsque nous patientons dans les écluses. Sinon un train bon moment, le bonheur de découvrir une partie de Paris sous un autre aspect :-)

Die Schifffahrt war sehr schön und ist unbedingt empfehlenswert. Wir waren jedoch sehr überrascht, dass es sich um eine "Einwegtour" handelt. Man muss sich also um seine Rückkehr zum Ausgangspunkt selbst kümmern!

Este "original" crucero te lleva desde el muelle bajo el Museo d'Orsay (Sena) hasta el Parc de La Villette en el extremo nordeste de París, navegando por el Canal Saint Martin. Sorteando los desniveles a través de esclusas, y haciendo parte del recorrido por el subsuelo de París. Tarda 2h30 en hacer el recorrido y es una experiencia muy agradable (sobretodo si el tiempo te acompaña). Recomendable al 100%. Además al llegar a La Villette puedes disfrutar del parque, del centro comercial, alquilar un barquito y navegar tu mismo, ir al Palacio de la Música, o a la Grande Halle y ver alguna exposición (actualmente Ramsés II).. puede ser una jornada completa!
