    • Famous replica of the frigate which embarked on board the Marquis de Lafayette in the Americas at the end of the 18th century, The Hermione is currently open to visitors at the port of Bayonne in Anglet. For the first time since this frigate sails, it is open to the public during a refit operation.

      During the repair work on the hull of this ship, free visits and guided tours are offered, take the opportunity to let yourself embark on this exceptional adventure! You will discover the history of the construction of The Hermione as well as its navigations but also its fairing in Anglet, site necessary for its relaunch.

      Your visit will support this extraordinary shipyard, supported by the shipowner's association.

      Two visit offers are available to you:

      • The free visit (about 1 hour) will allow you to discover in the exhibition at the quay the history of The Hermione, its many adventures and the associative project which is at its origin. You will then board and access the first two decks of the ship*.

      • The discovery & history guided tour (1h30)** - the guide invites you to a first immersion in the history of the frigate, the challenges of its construction in Rochefort for 17 years, its navigations and its large refit. You will access the upper deck and the crew sleeping quarters, below the battery deck.

      • The large fairing guided tour (1h30)** - this visit allows you to understand in detail what the large fairing is, this extraordinary project which started in the fall of 2021. Descent to the bottom of the dry dock, at most near the masts that have been removed and the hull of The Hermione, where repair work is being carried out. This visit is exceptional: since the frigate has been sailing, it is the first time that we can approach the usually submerged part of its hull!

      * The exhibition is accessible to people with reduced mobility, however access to the ship requires very good mobility (walkway then on board steep and narrow stairs).
      ** Before or after the guided tour, you can discover the exhibition at the quay.

    A great experience. Guided tour by Estelle, full of enthusiasm, energy and passion. A great moment of sharing. Impressive, immense, the beautiful Hermione has lost her splendor, surrounded by scaffolding. We realize the scale of the project when we find ourselves at the bottom of the dry dock. As a reminder, this is a major refit, which means in the maritime environment, a general overhaul, hence all the scaffolding surrounding the frigate. Congratulations to everyone for this titanic work.
