The Copains Babord : another way to sail on the Somme

Cast off (almost) anywhere in Amiens and sail to your destination with total peace of mind thanks to the Copains Babord (Port-Side Pals).





Along the towpath or through the floating gardens, head off on a trip aboard Mayflower or Junior, the two boats that belong to the company "Les Copains Babords".

From the terrace of one of the partner restaurants or around the floating gardens, set off for an hour-and-a-half on the waters of the Somme to Lamotte-Brebière.

On board, refreshments and home-made cocktail food served with fresh, organic products. The pilot will give you the helm for a few minutes, then it’s up to you to steer.

Whether you’re in the heart of nature or the centre of Amiens, with family or friends, just enjoy !



Tariffs per boat:

1 hr 15: €9 per adult, €5 per child

2 hr: €13 per adult, €8 per child



In addition to Mayflower and Junior, which are two combustion-engined motor boats, Copains Babord also offers electric boat rides that do not require a permit. With a capacity of 5 or 6 people, these little boats are a great way to find yourself alone in the world in the heart of Amiens nature.


Rates per boat ride:

1 hr 30: €45

3 hr: €70

5 hr: €110


Open March to December
