boat launching ramps
In order to make fishing sites accessible to as many people as possible, you will find a set of developments carried out on the rivers and lakes in the Landes . The reception capacity offered by the various slipways varies according to the sectors and their configurations. Some holds are only suitable for light boats while others can accommodate large units . It is in this spirit that we have tried to classify these slipways from 1 to 3 stars depending on their ease of use / boat size.
