Embark on a sailboat trip in Dunkirk and enjoy an ocean-inspired French apéritif

Just steps away from Mercure Dunkerque, right on the marina, meet Christophe Patou, a native from the region and a sailor with 25 years of experience. He'll be your guide on this experience to share his passion for the North Sea, its vibrant colors, captivating contrasts, and hidden treasures.

Prepare for a voyage filled with the sailor's anecdotes, historical insights about the harbor of Dunkirk, and a lot of information about the city and all its enigmatic secrets. You’ll board the Snitch, his boat, and set sail for a journey of pleasures. After your nautical exploration, immerse yourselves into a sea-infused apéritif, savoring locally caught fishes, seasonal products, while upholding eco-friendly practices. Throughout your journey, you'll be fully immersed in the captivating atmosphere of Dunkirk.
