Upon arrival we were welcomed aboard and offered coffee and croissants while we were given a review of the boat. We then cruised over to a beautiful bay where we set anchor and could swim or enjoy a delicious lunch of salmon and several fresh salads and a tart au pomme for dessert. After relaxing, jumping in or putting our feet in the water we set sail for another beautiful bay from where we saw the island from which The Count of Monte Cristo escaped. Alexader Dumas loved and was inspired by Marseille as am I.

Amazing to have a small group on the catamaran but this is not a boat trip in the calanque national park as it leads you to believe and we felt a little mislead. Good food and still nice scenery. Also annoyed that others paid significantly less than us by booking direct. Expensive but on a hot day it’s still very good

Very professional tour. Punctual. Short safety briefing. Bread cheese and croissants on arrival. Lovely views of the Mediterranean shoreline. Gorgeous excursion in a sunny day. Swimming and snorkelling off the boat. Nice lunch. Slow drift back. Crew were very helpful and engaging. Nice to be in a small party. Perfect.
