Trips by boat on the Arcachon bay, departing from Andernos les Bains

Andernos could be called the "capital" of the northeast shore of Arcachon Bay. The northeast shore is limited by Biganos on the south and Ares, on the North. It is a succession of small typical villages such like Audenge, Cassis, Taussat etc.
It is also the north door to the arcachon bay, being the closest boarding point for Lacanau, Le Porge etc and also to a certain extent all Bordeaux area.
Like for all the ports in the Northeast shore of the bay, boarding depends on tides (near full tide). Out of season, it takes place in port of Betey, and in peak season, it takes place in halte nautique next to the main jetty of Andernos

There are three possible types of boat tours

1- The discovery tours

Tour of the "Ôle aux oiseaux" with no call
Trip takes 2h15. The first part of the tour includes the navigation through the Andernos channel to join the île aux oiseaux Then after, it is a standard tour of the island. Schedules and prices with this link.
Tour of the "Ôle aux oiseaux" without a call in Arcachon
This is the same trip as above but for the same price, there is a call of few hours in Arcachon.
Reach the Arguin sandbank or the Pilat sand dune or visit both in the same day (Grand Sud)
It takes 1h30min to go to one of the other site from Andernos and it is possible to have a 5h call either on the sandbank or the Pilat sand dune. Schedules and prices with this link.

2- The cross-bay route

There is only one way to link Andernos and Arcachon accross the bay. It can be done either by pinasse or by speed boat.It is possible to take a bicycle on boat. The cross-bay route between Andernos and Arcachon is only opened in season.

Andernos les bains - Arcachon: The schedules and prices (Schedules available begining of may).
This route depends on tides and therefore it is only opened few hours a day. Crossing the bay takes 1h. This an ideal route for people enjoying cycling.

Then, they can come back by bikes on cycling paths and discover all the nice Oyster farms villages on the road.
