Collioure to Cadaques - by boat?

I have consulted the website of Compagnie Maritime Roussillon Croisiers but cannot establish if one can take a day trip from Collioure to Cadaques during the summer season.

There appear to be trips as far as Roses but I cannot determine if the boat passes by the towns en route or actually makes stops to let passengers off.

Can anyone advise?

Depending on the date you select, they either stop in Cadaques or in Rosas and can book a restaurant for you if you wish. Here is what they say on their site :

. Selon programme en vigueur

. Départ le matin

. Retour en fin d'après midi

. Escale soit à Cadaques ( 6h00 ) (option repas au restaurant Bahia)

. Soit à Rosas ( 4h00) (option repas au restaurant Rocamar)

One must hope their navigation skills at sea are better than mine at navigating around their website.

I still cannot find any indication of dates for specific trips or the tariffs for such excursions. There seems to be an emphasis towards group bookings rather than for individual travellers. Perhaps trips are scheduled on an ad hoc basis, to facilitate group bookings.

Or perhaps I should have studied French at school..........

I agree that their website is not very clear. However it seems that the price for Cadaques or Rosas is €53.50 per person including lunch. I can't believe that they only take groups of 30 to 56 persons and no individual passengers.

Maybe you could contact them and ask : cmrc@club-internet.fr

Re dates; I think they are scheduled according to weather.

Having made contact with the boat company and received a copy of their current brochure, I have (I think) established that they do

not operate between Collioure and Cadaques this year.

They offer a service from Port Vendres to Cadaques on Thursdays and Sundays, leaving at 09.35 and returning at 17.30.

Stopover time is between 3 to 4 hours and adult fare is quoted at €45, with no reference to a lunch being included.
