Why take advantage?

La Recouvrance is a replica of an aviso, an early 19th century military vessel used to transmit urgent messages to the coasts of Africa and the West Indies.
Today, the schooner, run by a crew of 5 professional sailors, offers a wide range of cruises along the Atlantic coast, particularly in Brest harbor, departing from the Commandant Malbert quay.

Cruises lasting from a few hours to a few days: weekly, full-day, half-day or Sunset (evening).
The opportunity to sail on an old rig while taking part in onboard maneuvers.

La Recouvrance welcomes all types of guests of all ages: individuals, birthday parties, associations, groups, works councils, seminars and meetings.
The program and reservations are available on the La Recouvrance website.
Tickets on sale at Brest métropole tourist office and at La Recouvrance office, 55 quai Eric Tabarly.
