Simply disorienting. Seeing Marseille from the water is worth the detour. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Whether you are with family, friends, or alone, go there! A little advice on the way back avoid the left rear seat if you don't want to end up a bit wet (nothing too bad, just refreshing)

This was a brilliant way to spend a few hours. Our tour guide, Eric, was so friendly and gave us lots of interesting facts about Marseilles. The island is beautiful. Very enjoyable, highly recommended!

Captain was friendly and knowledgeable, and spoke both French and English. I’m inspired to read the “Count of Monte Christo”!

Erik is Helpful and kind and a great guide. Short but very interesting and very beautiful activity. It was very easy to find.

Beautiful cruise From the boat you see Marseille in a different way. Explanation also in English
