While staying a few days in Cassis, we took a boat tour of Les Calanques. Of six weeks of travel in France, this was my favorite activity. We went the tourist bureau and purchased tickets for the Five Calanque Cruise. If I were to do...More
We toured the Calanques National Park and the City of Cassis as part of a Viking Ocean shore excursion. The national park features geological wonders and Cassis is a mildly interesting fishing village.
We stayed with our friends from Paris at a 3 bedroom apartment in Cassis in early September and had a wonderful time visiting the Calanques, where you can walk, hike, or swim and enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding area.
The Calanques can be quite...More
We hiked up in Cassis to picnic. Also took a boat tour from the port in Cassis. It is so beautiful and pictures don’t do it justice. You can hike, swim, kayak, and climb! You can make it a leisurely walk or an difficult hike...More
We choose to take the shorter, 45 minute or so, excursion at the last minute out of Cassis. It was worth it. If you have the time, do it. The ferry took us to 3 locals bays/inlets. Each where beautiful and unique. There was a...More
My friends and I rented Kayaks from the nearby town and paddled our way over. Was a bit of a challenge as going at a fast pace you reach the various "calanques" in about 45 minutes but it was all worth it. There are stunning...More
Getting to Cassis by train from Marseiile is quick and quite cheap. But then your problems start. The rail station named 'Cassis' should be called "A station somewhere near Cassis which requires you to leg it'. On arrival you do indeed see a Taxi space...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 excursions of 3, 5, 8 or 9 Calanques. The 3 Calanques is 45 mins, 5 is just over an hour, 8 is 2 hours. The cost for 3 adults and a child for 5 Calanques was about 75 Euros. It opens at 9am and gets busy- you can only buy tickets on the day. When you purchase your ticket, you then return half an hour before you leave to collect the tickets and the quay number. All the boats line up opposite the ticket kiosk, it is a very structured and orderly system. Hope you have a lovely trip!
Is vising the Calanques from La Ciotat possible? (1 Replies)
My family and I are visiting La Ciotat and wanted to know if it is possible to have a short visit to the Calanques from here? Any child friendly restaurants that anyone can recommend also?

Walking in August (6 Replies)
My husband and I are flying to Marseille in August and will have four days (with a car) before we drive to the Cote d'Azure. We are keen hill walkers and would ideally like to spend one or two days walking. Where is a good place to walk? The Luberon? Mourre Negre? The Calanques? Or will paths be closed in August?

Thanks Kathy and datthecoast - I work in a school and so am tied to school holidays! We are walking in Scotland this May half-term holiday but it sounds like that would be a good time for walking in France another year.
