Unique in Charente Maritime, the Bazoin locks pier offers you a stroll in the heart of the Poitevin marshes, by boat, kayaks, rosalies or paddles, come and discover the local fauna and flora.

The Bazoin locks pier is a destination open to all:
As a family, take advantage of a moment of calm to weave through the meanders of the canals. Accompanied by our boat guides, choose the duration that suits you to learn the history, fauna and flora of the place.
As a duo, sit aboard our canoes/kayaks for a natural and sporty moment.
With friends, hoist yourself on paddles and take advantage of wider canals to try your hand at this concept while discovering the local flora and fauna thanks to our guides.
Finally, little adventurers can follow the trail with traces and clues or the sensory trail around the pier with a reward!
Strolls along the water, but also bike rides: you can rent rosalies or bikes at the reception and explore the paths of the Marais poitevin.
