Embark with Jean-Michel, the captain, and his partner Véronique, for a cruise on the Garonne canal aboard a magnificent Dutch barge, a 1925 Luxe Motor model. Superbly renovated, she offers unparalleled comfort with her stove in the living room and her Nordic bath at the front of the boat, so that you don't miss anything of this trip along the water.

Owner's Message WAKAI CRUISE
A walk in Paris, crossing the Pont des Arts and under our feet a cruise ship. This day was the starting point of our project: to invest in a barge to join our native South-West and make you discover our region differently.
After months of searching between France and the Netherlands via Belgium, we found our boat in Harlingen, a beautiful harbour town in the north of Holland. It is a Luxe Motor from 1925, a typical Dutch barge with beautiful curves.
Our boat, named WB4: Waterboot 4, was delivering fresh water to the cargo ship in the port of Ghent in Belgium.
After years of work to transform it into a boat that can accommodate you in the best conditions: "Wakaï" was born.
We sailed for almost 6 months from Harlingen to Le Mas d'Agenais. We sailed thousands of kilometres between inland seas, rivers and canals, passing through hundreds of locks, tunnels, bridges and canal bridges. We discovered exceptional structures such as the historic lifts of the Canal du Centre, the funicular lift of Strépy-Thieu which allows us to cross a difference in level of 73.15 metres, not forgetting the magnificent Canal Bridge of Agen, the second longest canal bridge in France, built entirely of cut stone.
