Traditional boat trips all year round!

Between tradition and modernity, the Embarcadère Cardinaud offers several ways to discover the natural and cultural riches of the Marais Poitevin.
You can discover quietly with a qualified boatman guide, the history and mysteries of a unique landscape, guided walks from dawn to dusk and we also have covered boats in case of rain or heat wave.
You can also go on a treasure hunt by taking part in one of the exclusive themed treasure hunts. For example the hunt for the legendary monsters of the Poitevin marshes.
Available on site: traditional or fast food, departures for walks or bike rides, a shop selling regional products, a picnic area...
Open year-round so you can also enjoy the magnificent fall colors and misty, flooded waterways in winter.
