You have been on a river cruise in Europe this season? Please take a few minutes and write a review. Especially if you used the River Cruise Info App this is a great way to say "Thanks" for all the information you got for free. :)|
The estuary is formed by the two main rivers Garonne and Dordogne. Its rivers dewater parts of the central massiv and the Pyrenees.
The Estuary has a length of nearly 90km / 55 miles from the confluence of the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers at Bec d'Ambes to the seaside end at Pointe de Grave.
No locks. Neighter on the Dordogne nor the Garonne. The estuary is lacking a dam system (like the Delta Works in the Netherlands) to control tidal bores.
As far up as Bordeaux (Garonne) and Libourne (Dordogne) you will experience tidal bores. In case you tend to get sea sick, take some pills with you. The cruises usually just include little bussing around. But as you are going to cruise the estuary and the lower stretches of two rivers, you are going to see some of the sites more than once.
