In Dinard, step aboard a boat of traditional design and discover a veritable inland sea, linking the Saint-Malo and Dinan areas.
The Croisières Chateaubriand company offer mini-cruises aboard excursion boats. You can opt for a return trip to Saint-Suliac (1hr), a return trip to Pont-Chateaubriand (1hr 30mins), or even a three hour trip on the river Rance to Plouer, Le Prat or La Hisse, depending on the tide. You’ll enjoy the trip and you’ll also enjoy your mode of transport, the Chateaubriand II, a 24 metre traditional boat with two decks. The boat comprises a restaurant seating 80 people, on the main deck, all varnished timber and wooden decking, a panoramic upper deck, and higher still an open terrace.... Why not be tempted to discover the Rance Valley, on board one of the lunch-cruises, or perhaps try a dinner-cruise and enjoy the delicious local gourmet food prepared by the boat's chef, Eric Felt.
