Explore Bordeaux and its Region at a Water Level
A PORT OF CALL
Today, Bordeaux is the 2nd busiest cruise-ship port-of-call after Le Havre on the French Atlantic and Channel coast. Every year, around twenty ships dock in the city, between the Place de la Bourse and the Quinconces.
Berths in the historic city centre offer direct access to restaurants, shops, and cultural activities. It is noteworthy that very few cities offer facilities of this quality for cruise ships.
Bordeaux, also called the Port of the Moon, because of its « croissant » shape, is a departure for cruises on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Different companies offer cruises to discover in 4 or 8 days everything Bordeaux and its vineyards have to offer.
