Paris Canal

If you'd like to bundle your Seine and St-Martin Canal cruising into a single voyage, Paris Canal is for you: The company's boats run between the Musée d'Orsay, on the Left Bank of the Seine River, to the Parc de la Villette in the 10th arrondissement. Journey time is about 2-1/4 hours, depending on traffic in the canal's locks.

Paris Canal also offers day cruises on the Seine, the Marne, the Canal de l'Ourcq, and the Canal St-Denis. See the company's Web site (link below) for details.

Location:

Paris Canal has two embarkation points for its St-Martin Canal cruises: one on the Quai Anatole France near the Musée d'Orsay, and the other in the Bassin de la Villette. The last time we checked, the company offered four cruises per day (two in each direction, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon).
