Shot taken in the Gulf of Morbihan: Mobihan in Breton language means “the small inland sea” and this is exactly what it is! The gulf comprises of dozens of islands like this one and is sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by the peninsula of Rhuys but a 1 km long gap between Port-Navalo and Kerpenhir lets the water in and out. Because this gap is narrow, the tidal currents are strong and water speeds can reach up to 9.4 knots.
