Traveler Tips

A good way to see the beaches, yachts, and homes surrounding the Port of Nice and the surrounding area.
Even better than a private tour because the view from the second level of the bus is spectacular.

Short, but Good
LesBohlen, May 2022
Seeing the area from the sea is a must. Very beautifull! This cruise was short, but a lot of fun and worth the time. The staff was great as well.
Great views, some things lost in translation
Kaila_C, May 2022
We definitely saw some beautiful sights and learned some things along the way. The crew and captain were great and translated some things in English during the tour but we definitely felt like there were long paragraphs of French explanations about things and then the translation to English was about one sentence. Sometimes there would be a long explanation in French and then no translation at all. We felt a little left out. But all in all, it was a beautiful way to spend an hour.
Mass boat ride. Disappointed
Kristin_C, May 2022
Save your money. Found out while in line that all outdoor seats were full and that we’d have to be inside….why wasn’t this disclosed in the description?! Was a party atmosphere with lots of selfie-taking from the younger crowd.
Beautiful view of the coastline
Robyn_W, May 2022
Great tour! Lots to see from the water. The crew was fun and the 1 hour trip was the perfect length. Get there early to exchange your reservation to tickets and get in line for a good seat on the boat.
Your sailorstuert is much...
Timo_J, May 2022
Your sailorstuert is much too friendly and goes too close people. It looked weird. And it seemed and felt odd. He should be act like gentlman, not like a clown. ————————————————————————————————————————————-/———- Xxxxxxxxxxxxzzzzzzz cxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxccxxxcxXxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccxxxxxcccccccccccXxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxccxxccxcxxxxcccccxcccccccccccccccccccccccxxxxxxxxxxxxcxcccxxxxxXxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcxccxxccccccccccxxxxxxxxxxxxcxcccxxcxc ccc.

It was a great experience...
Judith_M, Apr 2022
It was a great experience with beautiful picturesque views. The sea conditions were rocky as there were strong winds but this just added to our experience, we felt safe at all times.
Great but not Gold
Michael_V, Apr 2022
The weather was amazing, if you are just looking for and hour to get off your feet and relax, this tour is for you. Boat needs newer speakers to be able to understand the speaker. The scenery of the mountains and houses were fantastic. Need to be there an hour early to get into the top deck

Beautiful views of the Baie des Anges
SheilaJ_C, Oct 2021
This is a great way to see Nice and the nearby areas from a different perspective. The narration was very informative and interesting. The boat is very comfortable and the views are beautiful. We even saw a dolphin along side the boat!
