Very much enjoyed an hour cruise to the Calanques. So pleasant to be on the water exploring the beautiful inlets, clear water and dramatic cliffs. Well worth the price of a ticket.

The calanques are easy to visit by boat from Cassis. Beatiful landscape. You can take a trip by car to Cap Canaile (highest sea cliff in France) and the port of La Ciotat. In february you don't have to worry about congestion

The calanques are right next to Cassis, allowing maximum flexibility. No matter if you want to do a two hour hike, a longer trip, go to a beach, or just sit somewhere to relax and enjoy the view and nature, you can do it here. Yacht ports and occasional ruins add further to the appeal of this place. Highly recommended!

We took a kayak to the calanques and spent the afternoon on the beach. What a beautiful place it is. My only advice is to go as early as possible as it does get quite busy the later it gets in the day.

Loved this trip. We opted to visit three of the calanques before enjoying lunch in Cassis. Lots of boats were available in the harbour. We were fortunate to have seats in the bow of the boat sitting outside. It was great to enjoy the sea air as we sail out and then around the beautiful inlets before returning to harbour.... More

Having read a number of reviews, I still remained a little uncertain of what "the calanques" actually were. Were they the rocky headlands or outcrops or were they the bays and inlets just to the west of Cassis? We chose to take a boat trip to find out and my conclusion is that they are a series of beautiful bays... More
