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

We arrived in the morning and walked straight to the booking office in the main square and booked for 1.30pm. It was very rough when we went out and there were a few stickies so take the seasickness tablets if you are that way inclined. The calanques, (kelonks) are just beautiful and I would not have missed them, but I... More

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.

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
