Nestling in the vast Seine estuary, in the heart of the small town with its beautiful 17th and 18th century slate-roofed houses, the port of Honfleur is bustling with activity in all seasons.

 

Each of its three basins is dedicated to one of the city's activities. The oldest, the Vieux Bassin, is home to Honfleur's marina, with its 80 berths, 30 of which are dedicated to visitors. The latter also houses the Cercle Nautique, which organises numerous events throughout the year, including the Fête des Marins. Your visit to the old port of Honfleur will continue with a visit to the fishing port. Its fleet of about forty units specialises in shrimp and scallop fishing. Finally, the history of this port wouldn't be complete without a look at the river port which welcomes all the cruise ships on the Seine.
