Since 1973, the Grand Pavois is an international boat show afloat held at the Port des Minimes in La Rochelle. More than 800 international exhibitors meet there on 100 000 m² of exhibition space.

Each year, a country or maritime region is the guest of honour. Themed areas are also offered to all visitors. A reference for enthusiasts, the Grand Pavois offers a unique opportunity to try out boats at sea before buying them. The Grand Pavois is one of the most important international boat shows afloat.

- L'île d'Oléron : it is the largest of the French Atlantic coast, it is famous for its oyster farming and its beaches.
