  • Check the weather: The weather can change quickly in Arcachon Bay, so it's important to check the forecast before you go. The tour operator may cancel the tour if the weather is bad.

  • Be aware of the tides: The tides can affect the itinerary of the tour, so be sure to ask the tour operator about this beforehand. We will adapt timing depending on the tides.
