About us

On board Ugo
Ugo has been spending his life in a boat since he was yougn… For several years now, he has been navigating and learning about the mythical Gorges de l’Ardèche. As qualified canoe kayak and associated disciplines instructor, he is also certified by the Gorges de l’Ardèche protected area.
For a few years, he sailed alongside the boatmen of the Ardèche (bateliers de l’Ard`che), who shared and cultivated their passion for this beautiful river.
We’ve been sharing our lives for a few years now, and are the parents of 2 boys who have also taken up kayaking as a passion.
At reception desk Maud
She’ll know how to share with you the best local tips, restaurants, swimming spots, accommodation… She’s also here to make sure you have a good time. A briefing and off you go, and she’ll be happy to chat with you when you return from your activities, in the shade on the terrace at La Petite Mer.

Nautical base de La Petite Mer

At La Petite Mer, you’ll be welcomed with your feet in the water, on a wooded plot of about 6,000 m2. Our base, located on the banks of the River Ardèche, has a small beach in front of a lake where you can sunbathe and swim.

This unspoilt setting invites you to enjoy a picnic, play boules or try your hand at slacklining.

We have around a hundred boats, canoes, kayaks and canobuses, rafting, paddles… as well as all the professional gear to do canyoning.

We have vehicles available for shuttling our customers.

The base has a shaded parking area. You can arrive by car, camper van, scooter, bike or on foot (bus station 10 minutes away).
