Your Hosts




We’ve been offering canal cruises for the past four years out of Roanne, France, our home away from home in Victoria, British Columbia. We delight in sharing one of the most relaxing and pleasant ways to see the beauty of rural France close-at-hand. And nothing pleases us more than enjoying fabulous food, drink, conversation and laughter in exquisite canal-side settings with our wonderful guest crew!

Marc is a consummate sailor, who has owned several sailing vessels. His 35 years of experience with the Canadian Coast Guard as a Search and Rescue diver, Vessel Inspector/Safety Officer and marine environmental ecologist means you're in good hands! Mary, a retired public servant, is a historian who speaks French well. She delights in sharing the treasure trove of local French history and culture with our guest crews.

We’re pleased  to offer wonderful testimonials from the many guests who have joined us as crew and left as friends…
