Maritime Seine, Lower Seine, the Seine through Paris, Upper Seine, Little Seine, Canal Saint-Denis, Canal Saint-Martin, Canal de l’Ourcq.
Crossing France from east to west for a distance of more than 700 kilometres, the Seine is the second longest river in France after the Loire. It has carried boats since prehistorical times but modern navigation dates back to the first half of the 19th century when the construction of needle weirs and the dredging of a channel enabled bigger and bigger vessels to reach the Parisian ports.
Today, this navigation is extended well above the capital and big barges can even reach the town of Nogent-sur-Seine. Unfortunately, the last few kilometres between Nogent and Marcilly are no longer practicable. We have included them in the guide but it is up to you, the boating fraternity, to put pressure on local authorities to carry out the repairs needed to render this attractive section navigable again.
In former times, the navigation was extended beyond Marcilly as far as Troyes by a lateral canal, the canal de la Haute Seine. Despite recent restoration works on its bridges and locks, this canal is definitively closed to navigation. We have nevertheless given it two pages as those who love waterways may wish to walk along its perfectly restored towpath.
To avoid the busy Parisian traffic, you can take the canal Saint-Denis and the canal Saint-Martin. These two waterways, which belong to the city of Paris, are included in the guide. We have even included the historical section of the canal de l’Ourcq despite the fact that it is only accessible to the smallest of craft.
To be able to present the Seine to you, we have been up and down it several times. The commercial traffic is increasing these last years but its big gauge locks are perfectly adapted to leisure craft. There is room for everyone provided you follow the instructions of the VNF waterways staff.
All of the text, explanations and the map legend are in French, English and German.

EU customers - IMPORTANT: You will be required to pay import VAT (tax) at your local rate to your postal delivery service before any goods are delivered. Since 2021 you have not been charged British VAT (at 20%) on any purchases or P&P charges, however, with effect from 1 January 2022, the rules regarding importing from outside the EU changed and import VAT is now payable on any value of goods imported into the EU. This is separate to any tariff which may or may not be chargeable on the goods due to their country of origin. Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Failure to pay the import charges will result in the goods being returned to the UK. Our terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this situation.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
