This boat trip took us round the coast and up into the inlets along the coast. All very scenic with cliffs rising straight up.

Very beautiful but the walk to en Vau is quite tough! It is a very step and rocky climb down to the water. But worth it

Apologies to Ratty from “Wind in the Willows”, but a day in the Calanques is unsurpassed. The physical beauty, lovely clear refreshing water, and the passing parade of other boats with human cargo is not to be missed. Add a picnic from the local stores...More

Just sign-up and pay at the dock for the tour you want; board the boat and off you go. There is no need for fancy and expensive tours. We had two hours on the water and traveled to nine Calanques and it was wonderful. Even...More

We jumped on the next boat leaving Cassis and saw three stunning coves, perfect for us as we did t want to jump in and got some great photos. Consider getting your own boat if you have a longer time to enjoy.

Boat tours are usually packed but the one with swimming included isn't (my guess due to safety reasons). You end-up doing 45 minutes visit of 3 different calanques (beautiful) and 45 minutes of swimming in another (beautiful too) place. The only catch is that you...More

As others have said, there is a kiosk just along from the tourist office, on the right hand side of the harbour as you look out to sea. It is one company and various boat owners seem to work for them. You can choose... More
