Safety is essential when hiring a boat

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

1 – Each passenger will be given a life vest. Remember: they must be worn at all times.

2 – The skipper must not drink alcoholic beverages and passengers should drink responsibly.

3 – Only stop on the designated public pontoons along the river (you can download the RUBAN VERT app on GooglePlay or AppStore). Do not moor on the river banks away from the dedicated pontoons. It is forbidden to moor under bridges to avoid obstructing the channel.

Dedicated pontoons locations:
• Between Nantes and Nort-sur-Erdre: Port des Charrettes, Anse de Gachet, Port de Sucé-sur-Erdre, La Gamotrie, end of the  Plaine de la Poupinière and Port de Nort-sur-Erdre
• From Vertou: Port de la Haie-Fouassière

4 – If you see anglers on the banks, please steer clear of the fishing lines.

5 – Before you set off, check that you have everything you need on board to enjoy a safe and enjoyable cruise, i.e. sun-hats, suncream, life vests and a well-charged mobile phone.

6 – When you return to base, wait for the RUBAN VERT operator to tell you when to berth and when it is safe to disembark.

In the event of a breakdown, incident or accident, please call us on (+33) (0) 6 28 13 31 45, (+33) (0) 6 76 14 21 89 or (+33) (0) 6 81 85 81 83.
