What to do on the Es­tu­ary?

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

A cruise

Em­bark at Pauil­lac from May till the end of Au­gust to dis­cover the largest Es­tu­ary in Western Europe and its is­lands (it is from here that La Fayette set sail for the Amer­i­cas in 1777 !) www.pauil­lac-me­doc.com

La Maréchale, Saint-chris­toly-de-mé­doc, Port of By, Goulée, Va­leyrac and Richard

The es­tu­ary around Mé­doc hosts a dozen in­cred­i­bly charm­ing lit­tle har­bours: (visit its light­house), and others. It is an op­por­tu­nity to glimpse the fa­mous car­relets, these large, square fish­ing nets that gave their name to a fish­ing tech­nique typ­i­cally used in the es­tu­ary and to the huts - on stilts – in­tended for this ac­tiv­ity. This hap­haz­ard fish­ing tech­nique is es­sen­tially used by hobby an­glers (the nets are raised reg­u­larly and no bait is used).
