"2h45 unforgettable cruse: we started from the Eyrac pier, we saw the beautiful cabins o the Bird Island then the boat left for the Cap Ferret, I really enjoyed the whole part on the oyster farming with the parks, the Cap oyster-farming villages, the captain explained the different farming techniques and, finally, the light was wonderful on the Arguin Bank and on the Dune. Just passing by Arcachon for the day, this excursion allowed us to discover the Bay in a minimal timing."

The Big Tour of the Bay... splendid !
