What You Can Expect

Cruise to Monaco

Enjoy the open water as you cruise from Nice to Monaco

Make your own way to Nice’s harbor and climb aboard your awaiting ferry for the scenic cruise along the French Riviera to Monaco. Absorb splendid ocean views as you sail and then disembark at the world’s second smallest country approximately 45 minutes later.

Gaze at the grand and unforgettable panorama of the Port of Monaco; admire luxurious yachts bobbing in the water and relish the sight of opulent palaces perched on rocky outcrops overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. 

Customize your itinerary to include the attractions that capture your interest and set out to explore Monaco independently; please note that all refreshments and entrance fees are purchased at your own expense. Head to the Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) to stroll amid the botanical beauty of the verdant expanse; descend to the subterranean Grottoe de L’Observatoire to see a network of prehistoric caves; or catch a glimpse of Mediterranean marine life at Musée Océanographique, an aquarium perched on top of a cliff. 

See, too, the opulent grandeur of the Casino of Monte Carlo and the palatial façade of the Prince’s Palace before visiting a local bar or restaurant for some gourmet dishes and refreshing beverages. Reconvene with your group at a pre-arranged time and then board the ferry for the scenic return journey to Nice.

The only disappointing part is that 6 hours is not enough to spend in Monaco. There's plenty to do and see there. The boat trip itself is also great, going pretty close to the marvelous coastline.

Super tour along the coast. The boat stops at Port De Fontvielle harbour, not the main harbour in Monaco, so you do have to walk into the centre from this port.

The tour was excellent. We didnt expect a guided tour on the way so that was pleasant surprise. One of the crew member, William, was an excellent guide and told us a lot about the towns and the villas on the way.

Great tour. Really enjoyed the fast boat. The commentary was fun. Ran on time. Bit of a bun fight to get on the boat.

The crew were all characters and as well as offering reasonably priced refreshments on board, they also provided an impromtu commentary on various highlights along the coast! This was an unexpected extra and really made the trip more enjoyable and memorable! It was something a little different which we have never tried before but would definitely do again. Coming in to the harbour/port at Monaco felt very grand and there was a shopping mall with a famous Fast Food Restaurant there as well which was a nice surprise.
We would recommend it as a way of getting to Monaco, and advise anyone taking any of the boat trips to make sure they arrive in plenty of time... a lady at the ticket window in front of us was a minute or so late for her trip to St Tropez, and could only stand and watch as her boat sailed past us all. To be fair, they do stress the importance of being on time, so take heed. Also if you suffer from sea-sickness make sure you take the appropriate tablets as the sea can be surprisingly choppy, especially as there are lots of very fast boats/yachts on the sea.
Will definitely do it again when we go to Nice in the future, as it was one of the highlights of our stay!!!!!!!

A great way to travel to Monaco, very freindly crew and a really knowledgeable (and funny) guide during the trip. The boat arrived / left on time each journey, very clean with a nice selection of refreshments.
