Cruises on la Marne with Passeurs de Marne

Cruise outing on the Marne: A good deal for your summer weekends!

The bargemen of the Marne river are at work again this summer because of their precedent year's success. They will make you discover the banks of Neuilly-sur-Marne and Gournay-sur-Marne differently by sailing from one to the other. The sailors will start their service on June 8th 2019 and will end two month later on September 8th 2019.

2 types of navigations are proposed every weekend: the shuttles and the "Passeurs"

On small boats of 12 places, you'll discover the wild Marne (its fauna and flora: ducks, swans, herons, coots, gulls, terns...). The sailors of the "Au Fil de l'Eau" association will make you explore green landscapes and will show you how this ecosystem is protected.

Fluvial cruises on the Marne summer 2019

Every weekend you will be able to sail for a couple euros between the banks of Neuilly-sur-Marne and Gournay-sur-Marne for about 40 min of a unique experience.

There also are other water outings  and themed cruises every week in summer for fond people!
