Ocean Ports of Call

Ambes - France Highlights:
Gironde Estuary, St Emilion
At the Bec d'Ambs, near Bordeaux, the Garonne joins the Dordogne River to form the Gironde estuary. Ocean-going ships navigate the river as far as the port of Bordeaux. Ambes has an otherwise average main street transformed into a Grand Boulevard by a double parade of trees. A canal parallel to the Garonne was built in 1838 to provide a direct waterway between Bordeaux and the Canal du Midi at Toulouse. More than 50 locks control the flow of the canal, which has a fall of about 128 m (420 ft). The peninsula between the Garonne and Dordogne is a famous wine-producing region. From here youcan explore the Gironde Estuary and St Emilion and the Vineyards.
