Les Bateliers Arcachonnais information
Year-round boats sail around Île aux Oiseaux , the uninhabited 'bird island' in the middle of the bay. It's a haven for tern, curlew and redshank, so bring your binoculars; tours last 1¾ hours and cost €16/11 for adults/children. In July and August there are all-day excursions (11am to 5.30pm; adult/child €26/17.50) to the Banc d'Arguin , the sand bank off the Dune du Pilat, and some fabulous themed trips afloat – sunset sailing, gastronomic catamaran cruises, oyster brunches and so forth. Buy tickets at the Les Bateliers Arcachonnais wooden huts, next to jetty from where boats set sail.
