The Bay
‘Pinasses’

‘Pinasses’ are traditional long and narrow wooden boats which are typical of the Bay of Arcachon.
Our company offers a new way of discovering and enjoying the Bay of Arcachon from the sea.

For your private and professional events, we provide you with pinasses and traditional boats complete with a skipper. We also offer a wide range of programs and personalized services.

Our goal

We invite you to discover the Bay, as the locals do, from your ‘Pinasse’ boat – the emblematic boat of the Arcachon Bay –… We’d like to share our treasures and traditions with you and we wish to make you feel the Bay Spirit.
Our main aim is to offer you the opportunity to spend a relaxing and enjoyable time or a well-deserved holiday!

Come with us to create memories to last a lifetime – we organize seminars, meetings, and many other kinds of events. Discover the hidden and preserved side of the Bay… for your pleasure, for a professional meeting or just for fun!

You will have the opportunity to discover Birds’ Island and its huts/cabins built on stilts, the Cape Ferret Peninsula small fishing villages and beaches, the Pilat Dune, the Arguin oyster Bank, the very heart of the Bay and the Leyre river delta, the picturesque Oyster Farming Ports.
