Beautiful views, relaxing trip, about 2hrs. Make sure you get the english guide at the beginning, gives brief explanation of area, sitting at the back was the best we found, the engine makes a but of a drone but we didnt notice after awhile. Great way to see the Calanques!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2hr 15 min boat ride visiting the beautiful Calanques. The scenery is so beautiful. What a nice way to see Marseilles from the water. My only disappointment was that the tour was only in French. They did give us an English handout, but that wasn't the same as having an English guide.

So glad I was able to take the boat tour and do the complete visit of the 8 Calanques. One more beautiful than the next.Impressive scenery and we had a very funny guide who had interesting details and trivia about each calanque.To say nothing of the turquoise water.Would have loved to take a dip but for that you must tour...

Cassis is the epitome of relaxation, warmth, beauty. Our boat tour was brief but we scanned 5 areas as part of the hour tour for our brief stay. Although we has a language barrier it was worth every moment exploring over blue gorgeous waters

The boat tour is a great way to see the beautiful coast line of Marseille. However, I would highly recommend only doing the tour for an hour. We went on the two hour and 15 minute option which was more like 2 hours and 45 minutes. The last hour was brutal. The boat was WAY too crowded and the boat... More

This was definitely the highlight of our trip. We took the Boat tour that leaves from Marseille Harbour and paid 20euro for a 2 to 3 hours tour. The water and cliffs were incredibly beautiful! A must do! Tip: Pack your sunblock and sunglasses or a hat!

You can choose a 2 hour 15 minute trip or one an hour longer. Either way, you won't be disappointed. The boats only travel when the weather is good, which is most of the time, and they have developed a great formula, they go in to the main Calanques, and at times go very close to the majestic cliffs giving...

I went on spring vacation to France and Spain with my senior class last year, and this was one of the moments that most stood out in my mind. The water was crystalline blue, and the sands white. We could see fish and the sea bed. I usually become sea sick, but that was no issue, which was delightful! I... More

We took the boat ride and did 5 calanques which was plenty as the scenery starts to get repetitive. Tickets were easy to obtain and there are lots of boats going out. This is a very popular activity. Stay at the back of the boat as it can get very wet upfront. The guide only spoke French but the trip... More
