The Océanite, a new water taxi to reach Brest and the Crozon peninsula

Around twenty minutes to get from Brest to the peninsula by taxi? It is now possible, thanks to the water taxi service launched by a young couple, Anne-Cécile Donval and Bryan Le Febvre and their small shipping company, LFPM. “We offer guided trips on the water, particularly in the harbor of Brest,” says Anne-Cécile, holder of a professional license in tourism, former tourist guide and guide for sea and river excursions and cruises.

Originally from Roscanvel, the young woman, who remembers with a smile having found “the time a little long as a teenager, without a scooter”, and her companion, Bryan, a fisherman from Molène, had the opportunity to create their first business together in early 2024. “An uncle of Bryan gave us his boat and it quickly seemed important to us to create, in addition to sea trips, a year-round link between Brest, where we now live , and the peninsula,” emphasizes Anne-Cécile.

On board L’Océanite, Anne-Cécile Donval and Bryan Le Febvre can carry 7 passengers.

A captain full of anecdotes

On board the Océanite, the couple can accommodate up to seven passengers and organize, on request, crossings to four peninsula ports: “We can take or pick up our passengers in Roscanvel, Lanvéoc, Le Fret or Camaret. » For a crossing, it costs €156.75 (except for Camaret, €204), divided by the number of passengers and no extra charge for luggage or bicycles. “If the boat is full, a crossing costs 23 euros per passenger, which remains an affordable price,” emphasizes Anne-Cécile, which guarantees “a safe sea experience of course!” We have as many PFDs (safety bras) as passengers, including for two children, a well-covered cabin and an experienced captain who is full of anecdotes from his seven years of offshore fishing! “. The couple has already transported quite a few hikers, arriving at Brest station and wishing to tour the peninsula on foot, or cycle tourists on their way to tour Brittany.

“We adapt to demand, like a classic taxi,” notes Anne-Cécile. Taking into account the times desired by customers, their port of departure and that of arrival. » Thus, from the peninsula, you can reach Brest (commercial port or Moulin blanc) but also Plougastel (Le Passage or Le Tinduff). And to avoid empty trips, Anne-Cécile and Bryan decided to quickly set up half-price opportunity offers, via announcements on their Facebook or Instagram pages. So watch out for a trip to Brest or an impromptu return from the End of the World.
