There are no Bateaux-Mouches on Canal de l'Ourcq but there are barges. Some of them are moored all year round, on the banks of Bassin de La Villette Paris, and in Seine-Saint-Denis, others stay for just a few weeks in summer, such as the barge Antipode. Throughout the year, there are large barges on which a variety of activities are proposed. Cultural, bookshop, or cinema barges on water, bar-restaurant or showroom venue barges are available to have a drink, to eat or watch a show while enjoying a breath-taking view of Paris and the Ourcq in an original setting.
In summer many boat cruises are on offer starting from Bassin de la Villette, as well as shuttle services.
