Watersports activities

Do you represent an organisation, a group, a works council, a school or a sports club? Our team is here to help you organise your stay.

The main objectives of our association are the promotion and development of watersports activities. For this reason, we offer accommodation exclusively to those undertaking waterports activities.

Watersports activities
  • The Lake of Aureilhan

    Most of the watersports activities take place on the Lake of Aureilhan (Mimizan Lake) which is 3,5 km (2 miles) from the « Lac et Océan » Centre. Here, you can safely go sailing, canoeing, rowing or stand up paddle boarding.

  • Encadrement de nos séances

    We pride ourselves on the quality of our sessions (all our monitors hold state qualifications) and for their emphasis on fun.

  • Additional information concerning young people

    All sports are governed by the general and specific provisions of Article R227-13 of the Code of Social Action and Families and the Order of April 25, 2012. Thus, the practice of water sports is subject to the provision of the document certifying the successful completion of one of the tests provided for in Article 3 of the Decree of 25 April 2012. The group leader is responsible for providing the Cercle Nautique with the necessary certificates for each participant.
