Great quick boat ride up coast which was great! I would do again in heartbeat. Easy and simple way to see outside of Nice! It was super hot that day which decreased joy a bit and some people stood in areas where there was no seating so then blocked views of those of us sitting on benches.

I had a great time, it was a very nice visit. Be careful to check before departure with the little office by the boat to get the real ticket and I'd recommend you arrive 30min before departure in ordre to get the best place (on the left side of the boat).

Absolutely incredible, with a fun and upbeat staff and amazing views from the boat. They allow the right number of people in so it's not too crowded, despite the huge line of people who didn't buy their tickets in advance begging for a spot. Great short trip at a fair price, 100% recommend it.
