Rouzic, the kingdom of the gannets
Imagine thousands of gannets, hundreds of puffins, crested cormorants, razorbills, common guillemots, northern fulmars, great, herring and brown gulls… in flight and in the hollow of the rocks. Attentive to the excellent ornithological comments of the guide who directs our eyes to observe the different species, the children are amazed. The gray seals are also part of the party, they swim or bask on the rocks. About thirty specimens would have taken up residence in this nature reserve.
A stopover on the Île aux Moines
Continuation of the stroll towards the neighboring islands and, since we chose the formula with stopover, we accost on the Île aux Moines recognizable by its lighthouse and a Vauban fort. The opportunity to stretch our legs for a walk to the lighthouse. To the delight of the children, this island is a paradise for rabbits, they run around everywhere!
Meeting with dolphins
We take our place on board the speedboat for the return to the coast. At sea, we are lucky enough to come across a school of dolphins, the boat captain slows down to let us enjoy this magical moment. Another boat is also at the stop to observe them, it is a boat of the League of Protection of the Birds which also proposes commented outings by a professional of the station.
Geological discovery of Côte de Granit Rose
On the way back, we go along the Côte de Granit Rose taking advantage of geological and historical explanations of the guide. This discovery of the coast and its colors from the sea offers us a grandiose and unique landscape before reaching our starting point and ending the excursion.
