The unmissable

Eau'dyssée Boat Trip

Get away from it all on board one of our leisure boats with Michel, Bruno or any of the captains in our fleet. As we are committed to protecting the environment and creating an eco-friendly atmosphere, we have swapped our motor boats for electrically-powered ones! Welcome aboard the Eau’dyssée!

A voyage

through the historic centre

There’s no need to bring your passport or luggage to climb aboard this cruise through the historic heart of Châlons-en-Champagne. Simply book your departure, and bring a hat or an extra layer, depending on the weather. Then, head for the pier. Don’t forget your camera, to capture this unique experience on film!

Here is a brief overview of the attractions and monuments you will discover during the tour. But that’s not all. You’ll be able to spot some other treasures along the way.

While they are not Venice’s Bridge of Sighs or Rialto Bridge, the cruise passes under the arches of Pont des Mariniers (the Sailors’ Bridge) and Pond des Viviers (Fishponds Bridge). Have fun counting the number of bridges you pass on the tour. You’re sure to be surprised!

The view of Notre-Dame-En-Vaux Collegiate Church from the water is exceptional with its two spires soaring high into the sky. The Sainte-Marie Convent can be seen in its contrasting red and white design and, of course, our city’s iconic Château du Marché.

A natural lush

You will even be able to venture under the city.

Like true explorers, you will enter two underground galleries, measuring 300 metres in length, where you can experience part of the light and sound show.

As you come up into daylight, you will find yourself amid lush greenery surrounded by wildlife. You may even come across majestic swans joined by coypu.

This delightful boat tour is ideal for families and people of all ages to enjoy.
