We loved the excursion, the funny jokes of our 2 captains, set the mood. We also had good weather and we enjoyed the landscapes and the magnificent view that awaited us at the top of the semaphore and the lighthouse. A sunset, Corsican songs, small bursts of speed on the way back, all the ingredients were there to spend an unforgettable moment with the JPS crew. We strongly recommend.

Superb boat trip. Baptiste was very nice, the climb to the lighthouse and the semaphore we really liked, what a view, a magnificent panorama. The aperitif was convivial. The sunset was present despite the cloudy sky.

Brilliant to absolutely make the professionals at the top friendly and assured security. Magnificent. Successful ambient music. Congratulations for this cruise

Great experience. The bikes have nothing to do with the photo, the engines were essential. Accessible to everyone. I strongly advise.

Very nice walk. Great atmosphere. We recommend. Eric
