Description of the cruise

Start your weekend with an evening cruise on the Saint-Martin Canal and get to know an out of ordinary side of Paris !

At the time of French « apéritif », this romantic trip of two hours will take you from the Bassin de la Villette to the ravishing Arsenal marina, at the foot of the Bastille square.

Let yourself be enchanted by the charm of this cruise on the calm waters of the Canal Saint-Martin, a magic place lined with one-hundred-year-old trees and spanned by elegant footbridges.

Relax to the slow rythm of the locks, while enjoying a glass of wine, one of our artisanal beers or a glass of Champagne ! An extended choice of drinks is available at the boat's bar (on option).

You will slide under the mysterious and spectacular vault of the Bastille, where the light is there magic...

With lounge music in the background, you will slide under two swing bridges, through four double locks, some of which were made famous with the cinema : the Récollets lock by the French actress Arletty in the film « Hôtel du Nord » or the Temple lock in « Amelie ».

Cruising along the water and the neighbouring streets, our guide will tell you some stories about this little known Paris. Then you will glide through the mysterious Bastille vault, under the Bastille square and the famous Colonne de Juillet, before landing around 8pm at the marina Arsenal.
