The Baie de Somme by boat
- 40minute crossing
Le Commandant Charcot
Head for Saint-Valery-sur-Somme and all aboard the Commandant Charcot. At the helm, Captains Forest, father and son. Captain Forest (senior) is a former fisherman, his face weathered by sun and spray. The pier is at the marina and the ticket office is housed in a little round house, red and sandy beige, inspired by traditional seaside resort architecture. From the boat you get an entirely different view of the coast, the landscape, the quays at Saint-Valery, you get to see some lovely villas. It's a restful and reinvigorating excursion.
