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.

This visit includes:

-a canal cruise commented in French and in English
