Hi, I've read Tripadvisor reviews where the La Peniche is docked the entire 2 hours or travels about 100 metres (25 minutes) then returns and docks for the remaining time. Very few to none said they cruised the entire 2 hours. What is the La Peniche actual travel time and length of travel before turning around to return? - Ron S

Yes,it is a very short little cruise,but the locks are so interesting! I do not think the point of the experience is the cruise,it is the ambience and food and good company! Have fun!
