      In the 1950s, many boatmen expressed the wish to harmonize navigation services in the Bassin d'Arcachon. This was the birth of the Union des Bateliers Arcachonnais, whose objective is to offer boats according to tourist demand. Today there are around forty ships available for hire, for excursions and private events. Book your sailing trip.
