I have done many pleasant boat trips. This is no exception, but my choice seems to me the right one only for those who have no time to indulge in wandering along the trails uphill The calanques seen from the boat are not so impressive and I am sure, that unless you row yourself with a kayak, the best thing...

Quick way to see Calanque. You get different view so it's worth it. If you sit in front wear a raincoat otherwise you might get very wet.

Loved it!! We booked the tour of five and probably would have been just as impressed with the tour of three. They were gorgeous!! You can also visit shops restaurants and the beach while there.

It was suggested that, for only a bit more money, that we do the full 9 'islands' [calanques]. So glad we listened! The first 3 that every boat goes to are banal and the last 4 are stunning! What this reminded us of is beautiful Bryce Canyon but with water beside it. A truly wonderful, relaxing 2 hours on very... More

We chose a short, 45-minute boat tour. The perfect time to see 3 Calanques on a short trip. It was the last sailing of the day, and unfortunately the boat broke down. But, the operators arranged for another to take over. The trip was loads of fun, crashing over the waves, and then in the calm of the Calanques themselves.... More

We did the 5 calanques trip from Cassis. It was fantastic if a little crowded on the boat. Worth the money and hugely spectacular. Commentary is in Frnech but you don't need to understand what your seeing, they explain themselves!

This is a boat trip right out of Cassis and they run constantly. They offer trips of 30 minutes up to a couple of hours. We all selected on about 90 minutes and it cost about 19euros. Weather was spectacular and sea relatively calm. The boat takes you along the coast and into several inlets with the steep and magnificent... More
