Cassis: Calanques National Park Standup Paddleboarding Tour

1. Cassis: Calanques National Park Standup Paddleboarding Tour

Departing from Cassis, we will start by crossing the calanque and the wild port of Port-Miou. Its name comes from the Latin "Portus Melhor" meaning best port. Indeed, set in the hollow of the cliffs, its waters are naturally sheltered and calm, which will allow us to start gently! We will follow the coast of the Calanques, to the calanque of Port-Pin to make a stopover there, and sail above its transparent waters. Finally, we will sail to the calanque of En-Vau, thus taking advantage of a break to possibly swim, explore the seabed and meet the marine fauna and flora. Along the way, we will discover the rich heritage offered by the Calanques National Park and its unique geology, strewn with pines clinging to the limestone rock. Come ride!

What people are saying about Calanques National Park

Fantastic! This is the best way to see the Callanque national park. It was a great experience from start to finish. Stunning scenery and a lot of fun. Our host Vanina was so lovely, kind and knowledgeable. She shared a lot of knowledge of the area and went above and beyond to make it a great day.

It was a bit difficult to find the meeting point as we have been there quite early. But the guide was very friendly and we had a good time. Keep in mind that you will be paddling for quite some time, so bring enough water and eventually a snack for the break

Very nice paddle ride on an exceptional site. We can only appreciate. Good organization, no problem. You have to come early to park your car.

Great experience, the tour only lasted 3.5 hours for us, but we were floored at the end. Definitely worth it!

Lovely chance to see the coves in cassis! Vanina was great
