We hired Daisy for three hours and took a trip to the lake and back. The electric boat was simple to operate and the river was surprisingly quiet. It was very a very peaceful sail through the forest during which we saw kingfishers at different points. Travelling at 6km per hour means you are going nowhere fast which was ideal... More

We hired 'daisy' for an hours trip on the river at La Gacilly. Lynn explained all we needed to know about the electric boat which is very easy to operate - a forward, stop or reverse mode and a steering wheel, that's it! We went down river and enjoyed a relaxing hour on the water, where we saw two Kingfishers... More

The slow pace of the electric boat forces relaxed sailing up the river. We were lucky with the weather and took the half day cruise to Glenac, eating by the lake and walking up to Le Relax bar.. Bar is small but atmospheric! Serves excellent local cider. Boat staff were English and all ran very smoothly.

Highly recommended! The river is stunning and the boat trip provides a great way to relax. I took the day trip and would recommend it if time allows, as there is a great variety of scenery to be seen. Also this allows you to sail across the lake which was great fun, beyond which you will find a lovely bar... More

A very pleasant Sunday cruise. Highly recommended. Wildlife abound and the river is just beautiful. A most relaxing way to explore the waterways around La Gacilly.
