Since 1999, Crisboat has been offering you the possibility of renting licence free houseboats for 2 to 12 people who do not require a specific permit. Called logically "boats without licence" or "licence-free barge", these boats offer a great opportunity to discover France and Europe and also Canada through its waterways.

The Canal du Midi , the Burgundy, the Brittany, on the river Lot, the Alsace, the Aquitaine, the Mayenne, the Ardennes, the Charente, Ireland-Shannon, Italy-Venice, Holland-Amsterdam, Germany-Berlin, England-Thames, Canada-Ottawa, Scotland-Loch Ness or even Belgium, we offer you the possibility to rent houseboats that can be driven without any licence and without any prior experience.

Since its creation, CrisBoat represents more than 60,000 clients, which were able to discover the fabulous French rivers and canals. Now you can discover Europe and Canada with a canal boat without licence. We work in partnership with local rental companies to offer you a very large choice of canal and river boating holidays.

A self-drive licence free river and canalboat is characterized by different criteria. It must be less than 15 meters long and at least 2 people must be on board.Without license, it is impossible for a single person to rent a boat.

Instructions, explanations and truition must be provided before departure. That's why, between the time you arrive at the base and the actual time you can leave tha quay there is about 1h to 2h. The time to finalize the administrative documents, then the training fo the boat, during which you will learn to navigate, to handle the boat and lock through, as well as all the rules of navigatio, all this take about 45 minutes.

the most for a successful fluvial rental The extras

les plus pour une location fluviale reussie Discover a region during a cruise

In recent years, ecotourism has been booming in France - although it appeared in the 70s - and responds to the desire of travellers to discover new territories while respecting the environment and biodiversity. And river cruises are part of this approach because they allow you to travel in a more ecological way, while taking your time and fully enjoying the landscapes. So, with the rental of a barge or boat without a licence, you can sail along the water and go on an adventure with family, friends or as a couple. This way of travelling is more authentic and you travel in a different way. Instead of driving on roads and highways, you use canals and waterways on your barge or boat without a rental permit. And it offers you another insight into the villages, a region, monuments. You see them from a different angle and you really have time to admire them. Especially since you can stop there to visit them during stopovers. And above all, you will discover buildings that you may not pay attention to by car, but which are worth a visit: bridges and locks.

At Crisboat, our river cruises are aimed at a wide audience. The only condition for piloting a boat or barge without a licence is to have at least 2 people on board. Otherwise, you do not need any specific knowledge or skills. Our boats are easy to operate and thanks to the training provided by our team, you learn the basics of navigation. Renting is also a good way to find out if you like this activity. In addition, before your departure, our team explains the rules of navigation to be respected and gives you advice to ensure that your stay takes place in excellent conditions.
