Where would I be placed on the boat?

Placement is free during our sightseeing cruises (“Les Canelés” walk, Apéro Bord'o, tasting cruise, etc.). You can take full advantage of all areas of the boat. For meal cruises (lunch and dinner), our room manager is responsible for setting up the rooms and your table.

Only a reservation with a “window” option can guarantee you this privileged placement. Your table may be placed on the upper deck or the lower deck, depending on other reservations for the day.

Gift box

I have a gift box but the code doesn't work.

Check that your code begins with GC, or with a series of numbers then letters. If this is not the case, contact us.
Have you entered the numbers correctly? Sometimes the number 1 looks like the capital letter i, or the number zero looks like the letter o.
All letters are capitalized.

I have a gift box for 2 people and I want to add participants

Reserve for the number of guests you want (for 4 people for example), add the code for your box in the “Gift box code” box.
You will only have the remaining places to pay.

Prepare your arrival

Where is the boarding pontoon for my cruise located?

The boarding location is indicated on your boarding pass which you should have received by email.
Check the location well in advance, the boats leave on time.
Port access and boarding

Is it necessary to arrive early?

For all sightseeing cruises, it is imperative to be present for boarding 15 minutes before departure.
For lunch and dinner cruises this is not necessary.

Is it obligatory to print my boarding pass?

You can present your boarding pass directly on your smartphone, let's think about the planet!
If you have purchased a Cité du Vin PASS, it must be printed.

In case of rain, is departure guaranteed?

Validation of departure is subject to the discretion of the captain. In the event of rain, departure is assured; in the event of a storm, a prefectural decree may prohibit navigation.
In this case, we will contact you to offer you a postponement of your cruise.

Are animals allowed on board?

We accept animals on board the Sicambre only.
Dogs must be small and placed in their transport bag at your feet.
The crew reserves the right to refuse access to the animal if you do not respect these conditions or if the animal behaves inappropriately.

Do your boats have PMR access?

Our restaurant boat Sicambre as well as the boat Sirius and Sardane can accommodate you in good conditions if you have a manual chair. Electric chairs cannot access the upper decks of the Sirius and Sicambre boats.
Do not hesitate to contact us by telephone.

I gave my name for the reservation but I am not the one who will benefit from the cruise.

No problem, beneficiaries will be able to board by giving your name at reception at the pontoon.
