Petit Futé's opinion on FISHING PORT OF LA ROCHELLE

Vintage plate 2020

When you are in La Rochelle, you will probably want to relax in the Old Port and have a coffee on the terrace of one of the bars. But the Petit Futé suggests you try a visit for the least unusual, that of the auction of La Rochelle. So yes, it's true, you'll have to get up early, but it's a great opportunity to learn a little more about the journey of the fish you'll be tasting, from the landing dock to the shipping. Two activities have been prepared: the visits of the fish market at the time of the sale accompanied by a specialized guide, you begin at 5 am by a visit of the installations of the fish market. At 6am, the time of the seafood auction rings. As an observer, you will be able to see the products being bought on the same day at the central market in La Rochelle. The second activity is to learn how to recognize the fish on the stalls and make your own fillets, every Thursday morning from July to August, for 3 hours, you put on an apron and boots and sit behind the boards to learn how to make cuts like a professional. In addition, you will leave with a freshly cut fish. Be sure to bring warm clothes and socks. A memorable moment where professionals, fishermen and buyers meet at dawn in a friendly atmosphere. And you have to earn the result to get the best of the products. Freshness and memories guaranteed!

Une expérience à vivre
Découvrir le métier de mareyeur, voir des et profiter de cette ambiance unique .... c'est l'expérience que vous propose le port de pêche. Loin des circuits touristiques classiques, une expérience authentique à vivre !
Mais il faut être matinal...RDV à 5h à l'encan !

Le vieux port est en plein centre ville.
Très jolie ville et bel endroit pour se balader, manger ou boire un verre ou avant une petite croisière à fort boyard ou dans les iles alentours. L'été il y a beaucoup de monde c'est difficile de se garer dans la Rochelle. Prévoyez d'y arriver tôt. Pleins de commerce et bars sympas.
