Despite skipper Denis having limited English, and us having equally limited French, we all managed to communicate beautifully and had a wonderful afternoon sailing around the Frioul Islands. We are experienced yachties, but the couple with us were not, however, together we hoisted, trimmed and took the sails down, and generally had a very relaxing sail. It gives a completely different view of Marseilles. We thoroughly recommend the half day sail.

This was a great tour/adventure experience! We got quite a bit of HANDS ON sailing, and our guide was so knowledgeable about the area. We did not get to go to the Calanques due to wind that day, but it was still an incredible experience. Would highly recommend!

Family excursion with children from & to 12 years old! Great sensations even if the wind had trouble pushing the sails... Maël, our skipper is top notch! He took us to an uncrowded cove. The water was frozen… but part of the crew swam! Nice experience

We had an outstanding day sailing on the Mediterranean sea in Marseille! That said, budget extra time to find the meeting location as we had trouble finding it.

Amazing trip to the Calanques. Our driver Miles was brilliant and the boat was really special. I would really recommend this trip. Perfect length.
