Saint-Raphaël: 2.5-hour sea and creeks boat excursion

1. Saint-Raphaël: 2.5-hour sea and creeks boat excursion

Enjoy unparalleled views of the French Riviera on a 2.5-hour boat tour from Santa Lucia port that takes you to hidden coves before letting you loose for a scenic snorkeling adventure. Take your spot on a 12-seater boat and get whisked across the Cote d'Azur for a panoramic view of the volcanic Esterel massif and Agay bay, where you can explore idyllic coastal creeks that are only accessible from the sea. Grab your snorkel gear when the caption drops anchor to admire the beauty of the Mediterranean seabed — keep an eye out for sea turtles as Esterel is also a Natura 2000 conservation site. Hold on tight as it’s then full-speed back to the port at Saint-Raphaël with drinks and music to wrap up a fun-filled day.

Cannes: Half-Day Catamaran Cruise

2. Cannes: Half-Day Catamaran Cruise

Climb aboard a fully equipped catamaran in the old port of Cannes at Quai Laubeuf, and set sail across the shimmering waters of the Bay of Cannes while relaxing on the sun deck. Departing at 2:00 PM, benefit from the best of the sun. Have free time to cool down in the water. Head towards the Île Sainte-Marguerite and to islands of the Lérins Islands group, or make your way over to the Corniche d'Or to moor either between the islands or in a cove along the Esterel Massif. Get some time to swim and snorkel in the Mediterranean Sea (masks and snorkels provided), or simply relax aboard the catamaran - the choice is yours! Return to the port of Cannes at 5:15 PM, where your cruising adventure comes to an end.

This experience was excellent! Thank you very much to Jérôme for his kindness, professionalism and good humor. We were transported during this fabulous trip thanks to his very interesting stories both about his personal life and the rest. Her "babies" in the water are very cute ;) We had a great time and will be back very soon. I recommend ! Adriana.
