The Grand Port of Rouen is unique as both a river and sea port. Often considered the seaport of Paris, Rouen hosts many cruise ships from around the world. The banks of the Seine are also the site for stopovers for boats making river cruises between Paris and Honfleur.

You can also take advantage of the many major ports of Normandy and use a shuttle or taxi to reach the Rouen metropolitan area. These are mainly served by ferries from England (Newhaven, Portsmouth) to Caen, Le Havre and Dieppe. There is a large choice of shuttles to Rouen.

If you are a pleasure boater, the Rouen marina can accommodate about 100 boats on floating pontoons in a completely secure space. Located near the Docks 76 shopping centre, the Rouen marina allows you to tether your boat just minutes from downtown Rouen. If you are downstream from Rouen on the Seine, you can make a stopover at the marina of Saint-Aubin-les-Elbeuf.
