What you can expect

Come and enjoy an exclusive cruise gliding down the UNESCO World Heritage Site with it's stunning scenery, on our beautiful cabin cruiser, while enjoying a delicious 3 course homemade lunch, selected from a short menu, for your group alone (2 to 6 guests).Your captain is Ferdi, and meals will be served onboard by your hostess and chef, Kate, with snacks and drinks of your choice throughout the trip.

For a lunch or Fonserranes locks cruise you will board near Capestang bridge, close to the Tourist Office. For a full day cruise, you will board at La Pigasse, 5km from Capestang.

On a lunch cruise (3 hours), we will travel downstream through the amazing Malpas Tunnel, then return to Capestang.

On a Fonserranes cruise (5.5 hours) we will travel downstream through the Malpas Tunnel and on to the 9 Fonserranes Locks at Beziers. You will disembark to watch other boats negotiate these amazing locks, then return to Capestang.

On a full day cruise we will travel upstream through some lovely villages like La Someil and Ventenac to Paraza, then return downstream. There is an opportunity for wine tasting at the wine cave in Ventenac next to the canal. Otherwise sit back and enjoy the ride, or a spot of sunbathing, while taking in the awe inspiring views.

Ferdi is of African origin and will entertain you with his stories, and Kate, British, can tell you about the canal.
