The fauna and flora on the Marne river
The Marne possesses real ecological riches. The isles and the natural banks form a shelter for the biodiversity. Your romantic trip with your beloved one will be favourable to animal watching on the Marne.
The quantity and number of species of fish are today the proof of the improvement of the water quality of the Marne around Meaux. On our electric, licence-free boats, you will be able to fish, for example: chubs, common daces, roaches, gudgeons, daces, sculpins, catfishes.
Be quiet, from our electric boats you will be able to get near to a variety of birds : grey wagtails, kingfishers, common sandpipers, crested grebes, mallard ducks, mute swans, grey herons, water hens etc. These birds are typical of a good river environment, for example: the kingfisher needs high and sandy riverbanks to build its small nests as on the isles.
Admire the banks without getting to near with the boat! Of course, you are the captain of your boat but the banks have bad surprises (trees under the water, rocks…). The richness of the trees around (elms, alders, ashes, willows) will highlight your family outing near Paris and Meaux.
