Birthplace of the giants of the seas
For more than a century and a half, ocean liners and now cruise ships have been the most prestigious ambassadors of Saint-Nazaire, bearing witness to an extraordinary know-how. Saint-Nazaire’s shipyard, which is renowned all over the world, opens its doors and allows you inside, as a privileged visitor.
We’ll take you by bus from the submarine base into the shipyard for a guided tour of a very dynamic, constantly evolving company. You will see the “streets” of the yard, the huge workshops and assembly docks, while high above you towers one of the most powerful gan-try cranes in Europe. This is a place where industry becomes quite spectacular!

Guided tour, 1 ½ or 2 hours. Booking required.
New in 2018: industry tours (shipyard, Airbus factory, harbour terminals) can be combined with the visit of Escal’Atlantic, the Ocean Liner Experience.
