You would like to enjoy the Bassin by sailing on it, between friends or with your loved one ? Our partners offer the possibility of renting motorboats with or without a skipper. 

Spend the day at the Banc d’Arguin, visit the Cabanes Tchanquées or L’Ile aux Oiseaux. You can also organise a breakfast or a pre-dinner drink while admiring the sunset along the Cap Ferret peninsula. 

Make sure you don’t forget your picnic and bottle of wine. 

Reservation without a skipper is subject to presenting your sailing license

Taking into account Andernos’s situation on the Bassin, this activity is highly dependent on low and high tide hours. Thus a reservation prior to arrival is extremely recommended. Last minute requests might not be honored.

Half a dayfrom 400 € (2h) to 650 € (4h)

If you rent and sail the boat yourself, your ID, sailing license and a 2500 € guarantee will be required.

As mentioned before, this activity is dependent on low and high tides and reservation in advance is necessary. To do so, thank you for sending an email to, or from our contact form.
