  • Excellent tour on a first class boat. All very professional and a great way to see the Calanques. Surely the best trip in the area and good value too .

  • The calanques are truly beautiful, the boat is relatively comfortable. Unfortunately the provided information is only in French (even the safety information). Also, the "swimming stop" is a rushed 5min dip in and out where you're not allowed to go away from the boat. The staff was constantly telling us to hurry up, even though in the end we arrived 40min early in the harbour!!
  • We bought the 13 "calanques" trip, and despite the kindness and friendly crew, we are very disappointed because, as the flyer states (as a differential from other trips) we are expecting stops for diving. Apart what we were expecting, the board did only one very short stop after 2h30. The stop was less than 20 minutes and insufficient for us the enjoy because one of us had to stay onboard for our daughter (3 years old, not allowed by them to swim). So whether you sell a BORING TRIP OF 4HOURS (THE GUIDE DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH, ONLY FRENCH) or whether you sell a swimming trip. The stamp on the flyer DO NOT REPRESENT what we got. Answer: I would like to state again: the staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner (or manager or whoever manages the social media) however showed that typical stereotype of the arrogant Frenchman. Good thing: it's pretty hard to find this stereotype here in France. And if you really want to know my 3 year old daughter's opinion (he implied that in another answer for someone else) I'll tell you: she loved the ride (although she slept half of it). And make no mistake: I loved the calanques, they are beautiful. but my comment is not about them, but about the boat ride. If the stamp is tiny and means anything, you should remove it from the flyer. Otherwise, stupid people like me will have it seriously. I'm a kind of experienced on boat rides, I should recommend many similar ones and they may be useful to improve yours. This comment is just to warm other people who, like me, relied on the reviews to choose who to take the tour with. for anyone who doesn't speak French, I don't recommend it. and for those who speak, let them know that it is a long ride and without any fun apart the sightseeing of the calanques.
