Decided to book a trip from La Rochelle. As it happened the earliest ferry for the next day was fully booked, so we decided to take the 1pm one, returning from Aix at 7:10pm. Cost was €29.50 each. Expensive, but as it turns out the...More

Trip to see the Fort Boyard was nice but not much to see after that. The water was a bit choppy which made for a bumpy ride. A bit expensive for what we saw.
