    Although not on a par with Venice, Rennes enjoys beautiful canals in spite of having “The Ugly” coastal river (La Vilaine) flowing through it. What if you awoke the long-distance captain in you? In front of the Mabilay's saucer tower, board one of l’Embarcadère's electric boats and cut through the waves at low speed. You will reach the lock Moulin du Comte in an hour before turning around to cross the Place de la République from below. You can sail to the countryside in a day, and enjoy a picnic at the étangs d’Apigné (Apigné lakes) or even visit the Champcors Mill. Saint-Martin's meadows and Baud beaches are also within sailing reach. The journey by kayak or paddle is a little more strenous but still accessible to the whole family. Above all, the experience enables visitors to rediscover the city from a fresh and tranquille perspective.
