Safety is essential when hiring a boat

Please read the following navigation instructions carefully to enjoy your cruise on the River Erdre or River Sèvre to the full.

1 – Give way to all other vessels.

2 – Always stay in the middle of the river. In places, the navigation channel is marked by red and green buoys: stay in the channel. When passing under bridges, always go through the central arches.

3 – Steer to the right of any boat coming in the opposite direction.

4 – You can overtake other vessels if you are travelling at a sufficient speed. When overtaking another vessel, always stay to the left and keep your distance.
