Come aboard a ship of legend, an authentic threemasted boat belonging to the pirate Borgnefesse, or join in the attack on the pirate camp.
Thrill-seekers can be catapulted by the bungy jump or test their skills on the mechanical surfboard.
For the less daring, there are various other adventures to try your hand at: rowing, diving, paddle boarding, sailing, canoeing, rafting... and of course there are the Polynesian and Madagascan villages.
Walk on water with the Waterball and discover the many other events and demonstrations: Newfoundland dogs, the Trainagoyes, the French Navy, rowing/enterprise challenges, the sailing boat La Savoie, rescue operations etc.

At some point during the festival you’ll encounter Les AquamenS, two men with their heads inside goldfish bowls with goldfish swimming around in them, and Paulette, a soul traveller, an expert trainer and a distinguished horsewoman who rides Hippolyte the sea horse.
