Guide to the River Marne

This guide covers the River Marne, which flows from its source in the Langres plateau close to the town of Balesmes for 514 kms until it joins the Seine at Charenton-le-Pont on the southern outskirts of Paris. It is only navigable for 178 kms of its length, from the town of Épernay until the confluence with the Seine.

Details are provided on all the marinas, haltes and other mooring points (even picnic stops) along the waterway, together with information on facilities, shopping and nearby attractions. Each mooring point is illustrated by a colour photo, meaning that the guide is the only detailed pictorial reference available for cruising on this waterway.

Members can download the Guide free. The downloadable guide includes links to all the moorings for which there are Cruising Reports currently available. Members viewing the Guide on their laptops, tablets or mobile phones are thus able to click directly through to individual Cruising Reports on the CA website – in addition, of course, to accessing them via the CAptain's Mate app.
