Full description
Board the boat at Vieux-Port, in front of Marseille’s city hall. Enjoy fruit juice and coffee served by the crew. Then set sail for the Bay of Marseille. Hear about the area's history and local culture from the crew on board. Anchor near a rocky inlet called a calanque, and go snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. Around midday break for an aperitif, and an exquisite lunch buffet made from organic, seasonal local produce. Enjoy two glasses of rosé with your meal. After lunch, continue to the Riou Archipelago and stop at a second scenic spot to swim and take in the scenery. You will then start heading back to the Vieux-Port. If you are interested, the friendly crew will be happy to give you an introduction to sailing.

BOOK IT NOW! This experience was a highlight of our trip! The boat is beautiful, classic look at 70 years old in PERFECT condition. We used the motor for some of the trip, but got to sail for some, they even let us help pull the ropes to get the sails up which was cool. They bring you to the first swim/snorkel spot and prepare a refreshing and delicious lunch for after the first swim. They take you to the next swim/snorkel spot and then provide a tasty dessert after. They were amazing hosts, very nice, and really do love what they do. There is a ladder you can go up/down to get in & out of the water, but they let you jump off the boat into the water which was really fun. They also put a paddle board in the water so you could sit on that if you need a break. Highly recommend, such a great experience! The boat departs from & arrives back in Old Port which is a lovely area with lots of restaurants & a little shopping market. We were out from 10-16:30ish. So much fun!
