boat trip

Offer included

With the Citypass, you also receive a ticket for a trip on the P’tits Bateaux electric boats.
Come aboard seven-seater boats for an enjoyable trip of around an hour along the Ille-et-Rance canal.

No license required,
you are the captain!

The P’tits Bateaux electric boats let you explore the city and the surrounding areas from a quiet and safe craft. There’s no need for a licence, so it’s entirely up to you where you go exploring with these environmentally friendly boats made locally in Vigneux-de-Bretagne.  P’tits Bateaux welcomes you at the departure point on the Saint-Martin canal, in their nautical base, in the Prairies Saint-Martin park, the green lungs of Rennes city centre. 

In this green oasis, there are many family activities on offer: children’s games, wildlife watching, a barbecue area, a kiosk, a bowling green and now the P’tits Bateaux and the Capitainerie café.

You will be able to share this themed tour with other friendly Citypass users who will also be on the boat! The passengers will have to decide who is going to be their captain. ID must be shown on arrival. Electric boat rides must be booked in advance. For children between 2 and 16 years old, you can buy an additional child ticket at the Tourist Office at the discounted rate of €4. For safety reasons, children under 2 years old are not permitted on the boat rides.

How long
to plan for
