Return to the region of navigation : Charente
Fluvial marina composed of a captaincy serving as a reception with a large esplanade. Located in the heart of the city of Cognac, on the Hennessy docks.

The locks on the Charente are manual (without lock keepers), hence the slightly sportier side of the cruise but also greater freedom of navigation: locks to maneuver yourself. It should be noted that the Charente may be subject to periods of flood or drought, making navigation impossible. In this case we reserve the right to offer you an alternative departure elsewhere in France
