We had a fantastic and perfect experience with Patrice (our captain) and Jade (daughter). Our cruise on the canal du midi was tailored to our needs and nothing was a problem for Patrice. It was a lovely way to spend our sons 9th birthday, he loved every minute of it. What amazing memories for life! If you want a laid back and chilled day, Patrice has the perfect boat and attitude. So obliging.
