A little bit of history  

The history of Saumur Loire Cruises begins in 2011, when Bernard Henry, our shipowner, bought the Saumur Loire and created the Saint-Nicolas navigation company in Saumur (CSNSN) CSNSN logo 200x200. Since then, the Saumur Loire Cruises have been one of the best Loire companies in Anjou, welcoming and delighting around 20 passengers each year.

The Docks of the Loire

In 2016, to ensure a better welcome for our passengers, we opened our Les Docks de la Loire boutique 60 meters from the embarkation quay in Saumur. In addition to information and ticketing for cruises, this shop is a bit like Ali Baba's cave with many Saumur treasures: local gastronomy and crafts.
