On Board

We can embark wheelchairs and pushchairs and take every disposition to ensure that everyone can access our boats if informed that a special access is required.

Pets are allowed if all the passengers agree to let them on the boats.

Picnic materials and drinks allowed.

We also put at your disposal on the boats French, English, Spanish and German dictionaries containing all the specific terms usually used during our trips (animals, plants, rivers etc.)

Rules and Security

The boats have been delivered a “Passenger boat” certificate by the Commission de Surveillance of Nantes. They are regularly checked by inspections and assessments.

The pilots have received regulatory approvals and certificates but have also been trained within our company to navigate in any kind of weather. Most of them have a solid experience due to many years of practice.

Boats are equipped with life jackets. In some conditions they are mandatory and the pilots will ask you to wear them. They are also free to use if you feel like you need one.

Having said this, it is not necessary for you to know how to swim to come onboard just as it is not necessary to know how to fly when you get on plane!

Millière Raboton is registered in the “Registre des structures pouvant accueillir des groupes scolaires » from the Inspection Académique du Loir et Cher, meaning we have the right to welcome school classes to our facilities.
