Sucé-sur-Erdre electric boat hire base

Opening of the 2021 season on Saturday, April 24th !

Our boat hire base is in Sucé-sur-Erdre. The town was already a “leisure cruising” center in the early 20th century.

River Erdre boat cruise

Starting from Sucé-sur-Erdre, you can either sail down river towards Nantes and admire all the magnificent “châteaux” on the way. These stately homes were built between the 14th and the 19th centuries and are still as impressive as ever for art and history lovers.

Or you can go towards Nort-sur-Erdre and explore the unspoilt natural environment of the plaines de Mazerolles marshes as you sail up river. This is a bird paradise, home to over 140 protected species of birds and rare plants.

Our electric boats

Our silent electric boats (no license needed) allow you to see all kinds of bird species close up.

Our base in Sucé-sur-Erdre has several types of boats that can suit your needs, whether you hire with family or friends:

  • Ruban (max. 3 adult passengers),
  • AS (max. 5 adult passengers),
  • Scoop (max. 6 adult passengers),
  • Most (max. 8 adult passengers).

Choose your ideal boat to discover the River Erdre with 2 to 8 passengers.
