Barge/Bus Tours in the Camargue?

Has anyone been on a tour of the Camargue area in Southern France? I have seen reference to barge tours, but have been unable to come up with a web site for more specific information.

We will be staying in Uzes for one week and intend on using public transport to get to Aigues-mortes and then hopefully be able to see a good cross section of this area ( in particular the flocks of flamingos, the white camargue ponies and the black bulls).

Any information or personal experiences would be a great help.

Thanks.

Try FranceCruises.
They cover this area with cruises between Avignon, AIgues Mortes and Montpellier.

Two years ago,I took bus from Arles to Stes.Maries-de-la-mer in Camargue. There were several boat tour signs by the seafront. I took one for half a day, saw quite a few flamingos and white horese.

I've taken pack horse tours into the wild Camargue from Saintes-Marie-??; these are offered at several mas (ranches) - you ride these horses into the dusty wilds where you see the famous white Camargue wild ponies. Along the roads you'll see signs for these tours.

I haven't been on a tour, but I've visited Saintes Maries de la Mer using the regular bus service from Arles. There are boat trips from Saintes Maries - see ww.lesquatremaries.com and www.tiki3.fr.
The converted barge PESCALUNE offers trips from Aigues Mortes (www.pescalune-aiguesmortes.com).

Thank you so much for this information - I now feel confident we will be able to make the most of a day in the Camargue region. I was worried that without a car we would miss out on seeing a lot.

I did a one week barge trip through this region last summer. check out gobarging.com - it was amazing!
