  • The pyrotechnic Festival seen from the Bay of Cannes
Full description

During 6 exceptional evenings, the starry sky of Cannes sparkles with a thousand lights during the Festival of Pyrotechnic Art. 700,000 spectators look up to admire the latest innovations from the world’s fireworks elite from Cannes’s terraces and beaches, not to mention spectators from all the surrounding cities. Security matters oblige for these important public events, the roads of the City of Cannes are gradually closing to traffic to make the seaside exclusively pedestrian, a nightmare for motorists and visitors from outside. Depart on a RIB boat from the Port du Béal in Cannes la Bocca for a sunset cruise, just the time for a nice swim at sea (unsupervised), and then you are at the forefront of the fireworks shots from the sea.

The best fireworks show I had ever seen. The trip there was amazing and exciting with 10 persons speed boats. Stoping for the sunset between the 2 islands with time to swim in the clear water, than anchor in the bay at dark between dozens of boats with everyone watching the amazing show with live music from giant speakers on the shore. Definitely to do once in a lifetime.

It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever experienced. Not only the captain but the whole staff was really friendly and helpful. After a few minutes of the boat ride we had the possibility to get into the water for a while, which was really nice. After that we continued our boat ride to get to the port of Cannes, in which we stayed for the duration of the firework. Not only could we enjoy the lights up in the sky, but also the beautiful sunset which was truly amazing. The firework was the best I’ve ever seen, but here I have to add that it’s not always the same one. Overall it was just an amazing feeling being on this boat, riding on the water, feeling the air around you (and not getting wet at all tho) and additionally seeing not only the beautiful sunset and Côte d’Azur but also the fireworks. I would honestly pay even more to experience it again and can definitely recommend it.

Geweldige boottocht naar het vuurwerk met schipper Alexander gehad, met een zwemstop tussen de eilanden. Neem wel je eigen snorkel mee als je wilt snorkelen. Daarna vond Alexander een top plaats vooraan vanwaar we het vuurwerk super goed konden zien. Flesje koud water na het zwemmen was ook heerlijk. Nog even terug gegaan voor een tip voor Alexander. Helaas was je al weg, maar je collega heeft t in ontvangst genomen. Alexander nogmaals bedankt.
