38 rue philippe Janet - Fouras

Embark with Pierre-Yves, an experienced guide, for another approach to the coast: from a family outing to a sporting outing, let yourself be tempted by these wonderful means of escape, ecological, accessible to all who are sea kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.

Depending on the tide times, the weather conditions and your desires, I suggest a meeting place on the coasts of Fouras or La Rochelle.

After having listed the safety rules, distributed the equipment and formed the crews (navigation in a two-seater kayak), I offer you a little initiation so that you can take to the sea with as much serenity as possible. We will navigate by heading towards some of the many points of interest that line our coasts. I will take breaks and use them to tell you some historical facts associated with the things we see.

The duration of our nautical escapades can be 2 hours, 3 hours or a day.
