Are you looking for an off-the-beaten tracks experience while wanting to keep your children engaged? Well you are at the right place!

You will do what Parisians love to do on their time off: hanging out by (and on!) the water, eating, and playing petanque!
Hop on your private electric boat with your own personal captain. During the 3-hour ride, you will discover the peaceful landscapes of the Canal de l’Ourcq, a true local spot where Parisians like to sail and to chill on their time off. You will have an electric boat at your disposal which will take you up the Canal, away from the crowds of tourists. You will feel like a true sailor en route toward freedom!
