Quai Elie Amouroux - Capestang

There are 4 cruises available - a 3hr lunch (11h departure) or dinner (normally 17h departure) cruise and a 5hr lunch and Fonserannes Locks (10h departure) cruise, which leave from Capestang, and a full day 6 and a half hr (10h departure) cruise which leaves from La Pigasse, near Capestang. After boarding, we glide gently down this amazing unesco world Heritage Site, the Canal du Midi, taking in the stunning scenery and beautiful villages along the way. You will enjoy a delicious homemade 3 course meal, which you choose from a short menu beforehand, with drinks onboard, prepared for you by your hostess, Kate. She will also give you some history of this amazing Canal, one of the oldest still in operation in Europe. For the first 3, we travel downstream through the famous Malpas Tunnel. On the 3hr we turn here; for the 5hr we continue to the 9 Fonserannes Locks in Beziers. Here we disembark to watch other boats negotiate these amazing locks. Boarding the boat again, we return to Capestang. On the full day cruise we travel upstream through the beautiful Le Somail and pass some aquaducts, and turn at Paraza. We take single groups of 2-6 guests, so you can move around as you please, sunbathe, or relax in the comfortable reclining chairs at the front which gives you the best view. The dinner cruise is only available during the long evenings mid June to mid August.

The only way to experience the best of Herault
When we decided to take our trip we weren't expecting such a memorable day. Before the trip we were given a menu to choose from and asked if we had any allergies. Wine is included in the menu and you can specify your preferred soft drinks which we thought was great. Kate cooked such a beautifully presented and delicious lunch, locally sourced and served on the deck under a canopy. She described the treasures of the area while her husband, Ferdi our captain, ensured a smooth ride on this beautiful boat. In all, both are great company and know how to make their guests feel at home. We highly recommend this trip to anyone to take in the beauty of the area while enjoying a delicious meal. Thank you Kay and Ferdi.
