- Duration: 1 hour
Experience the French Riviera on a 1-hour cruise from Nice, and get carried away by the natural splendor of the Côte d'Azur on a charming nautical excursion. Depart from the port of Nice and head towards the famous deep water bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Listen to an informative commentary provided by the crew (either in French or English) as you pass the luxurious villas of the rich and famous. Admire the hilltop villages in the distance, and the beautiful coastline of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, known as a favorite place to vacation among the European aristocracy and international millionaires. Continue to the village of Villefranche-sur-Mer to get a look at its colorful fishing port. The bay is one of the deepest natural harbors in the Mediterranean Sea and provides safe anchorage for large ships. Conclude your sightseeing cruise with a tour of the Baie des Anges in Nice.

Very enjoyable! The meeting point had poor signage but the pin point on the app was right on. The staff were friendly and informative but scripted. Lasted almost exactly an hour. Had periods of both fast and slow speeds
Step aboard a beautiful boat and begin your full day tour. Pass the Frioul Islands and see the Château d'If in Marseilles from the perspective of the water. Then, drop anchor in a calm cove and stop for a mini wine tasting course with Provencal wines and typical tapas from the south of France. Swim, if you like, in a very safe area and snorkeling gear will be provided aboard the boat. Take the option to reserve a table in a seaside restaurant. Next, discover the Calanques National Park. Learn about the secrets of this magical, protected region of rocky inlets.

Quick way to see the bays by boat. Informative and very friendly crew. Not too crowded on the boat.
