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

Went to Calanques on a 3.5 hour tour with swimming. The swimming was amazing. As said in other reviews, all the explanations were in French. Arrive early to secure the best seats. We loved the trip but did not see any of the bay's pictured in the leaflets.

We took the 8 calanques tour in early August. Tickets are purchased from the ticket hut near the boules pitches. The line took 30 minutes starting 12:10, it looked longer later in the day. Despite the sign it is possible to buy tickets for any of the trips that day not just the next one to leave. The tour left... More

We visited Cassis in August and lines for the calanques tours were very long and boats were very crowded. It looked miserable! We searched around for a small private boat with skipper and found Visite Les Calanques, which offered a 12 passenger boat just for our party. This is the way to go! For 324 Euro, we took a 2...

The views are nice. However the boat tour itself isn't very nicely organized: they sell more tickets than there are places on the boats, so if you don't push into the crowd and try to get on the boat among the first, you might have to wait for another boat and again try to push in. Not a single employee... More

It was a nice ride visiting the inlets. The captain explained things in French, I wish he spoke some English at least.

We bought tickets for the 8 Calonque trip which took 1,5 hours. It was worth the trip though I believe by less wind you see better the very blue water. Both adults and kid liked the boat trip and what we saw. Impressing nature. After trip we took a bath at the very crowd beach. This we will not do... More

The three-hour tour of the Calanques was well worth the 26 Euro fare, taking one along the fantastic coastline with its wealth of limestone rock formations and into several of the fjord-like calanques. There's also a shorter, cheaper version of the trip.

Quick 45 min boat tour of 3 Calanques on Bastile Day. It was busy. Bought billet (ticket) in the office behind the boat. The tour was conducted all in French. No one asked questions. No one got out of the boat to swim. Couldn't go to far in the calanque to get to beach. There were a lot of other... More

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours whilst staying at the port. It was very easy to get tickets. The trip was very popular and well run. You get some very nice views of the little beaches in the area. I would recommend the 2 hour trip, I think we would have been bored on the... More
