Is it possible to rent a boat without a licence?

nbsp;

 

 

- Yes, for a motor boat rental with less than 6 horsepower.


- On some unfrequented canals and rivers, some canal boats are rented without a permit. For example, most canal boats on the Canal du Midi do not require a license.


- Sailing on sailboats does not require a licence, but significant experience as a captain is required. This will vary depending on the country you wish to sail in. In France, no license is required to rent a sailboat, but you will have to provide a nautical cv detailing all of your experience and what kind of boats you handled. In most other European countries, it is recommended to have an ICC with a valid license. This will avoid any problems with the port authorities.


Do you have limited nautical knowledge? No problem, you can become captain of your own ship for a few hours. At the beginning of your rental period, the owner will explain how to operate the boat. Unlicensed boats are generally very easy to operate in safe areas. Another option we present is to rent a boat with a guide. The owner will be on board, but will not touch the controls. As mentioned, most of these boats are manageable due to the calm waters and the amount of horsepower they possess.

River Navigation

The Canal du Midi is one of the privileged channels for a peaceful river cruise. The speed of a canal boat cannot exceed 12 km/hour, which makes it possible to navigate safely and pass through the locks easily. The calm waters provided by the Canal du Midi will make it an extraordinary experience, even if you are just a beginner.

With skipper

If you want a more powerful boat, we have another solution for you. Rent a boat with a skipper who can captain the boat for you, an ideal solution to discover the navigation area in complete safety with a guide. You will set the itinerary with the skipper and he will take control of navigating the vessel wherever you'd like to go.

Spettacolo! Angelo mi ha contattato qualche giorno prima per meglio organizzarci e mi ha anche aiutato a districarmi con i bus per raggiungere il porto. Siamo stati benissimo. Anche quando il mare si è agitato ci hanno portato in zone più tranquille dove io, la mia compagna e la bambina ci siamo divertite tantissimo. Sì, ritorneremo l'anno prossimo.
