  • Sail up and down Quiberon Bay with your family aboard a traditional local gig, an ideal way to discover the marine environment while learning how to sail.

    All aboard! Climb aboard this local gig from Morbihan with your children from the age of six. This traditional sailing vessel is easy to handle, whatever the wind and weather. It is the ideal way to get used to the basic techniques of sailing. Skipper for a day, you will not only be there to watch, but also to take part in the trip. You’ll trim the sails, take the helm: it’s all possible. You can look, forward to some exciting moments. Your marine guide will tell you all he knows about the history of the bay, the local birds, fishing and oyster farming and all about the buoys at sea. The port of la Trinité-sur-Mer is nearby, so you may well encounter some large racing yachts along the way, some real Formula Ones of the sea. And in the background you can see Belle-Ile and Houat Islands. To finish on a rather tasty note, you can try some oysters that your guide has brought aboard. Tempted? Just nip down to Carnac from May to September.
