Full description
Start from Beaulieu's marina (Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis), in the famous bay of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, between Nice city center and Monaco. Enjoy a 1-hour cruise on a private boat accompanied by a guide that will show you the famous spots along the coastline. Admire the famous villas of Kerylos and Ephrussi Rothschild, and the iconic hotels La Reserve and Royal Riviera. Discover the mooring in front of Villa David Niven above crystal-clear waters or sail between the yachts at sunset.  The ship is a 100% solar-powered, silent and odorless electric boat with the ability to cruise at a close distance to points of interest. The boat is license free so that you can take the opportunity to drive as well under the guidance of your private skipper guide. At the end of the tour, return to Beaulieu-sur-Mer's Marina. Tours may be canceled during unfavorable weather, but if this occurs you’ll be given fair warning with an option to reschedule. The best is to book within 24H before departure depending on weather forecast. This 1-hour guided tour includes solar sailing training, navigation to Kerylos and David Niven's famous villas, discovery of a natural reserve with its translucent waters and experience of port maneuvers. Your tour is a private one that’s customized and priced for a group of up to 6 people. All you need to do is bring your sunscreen, sunglasses and cap.

This boat excursion was so much fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. Plus, he allows you to customize your time, so we stopped and jumped into the sea! It was fabulous! Another good point is the solar point is environmentally friendly and had no exhaust fumes. I would encourage you to book a tour!

Fabulous boat trip, definitely to be recommended.

Three of us enjoyed this private boat hire with great views of the private villas of the rich and famous on a lovely stretch of the Cote D’Azur. The solar powered boat was completely quiet and glided along - we loved the fact that there were no diesel fumes. Definitely much better than a trip on the crowded pleasure boats of the big operators. The owner (who skippered the boat) was very knowledgeable and was able to point out lots of interesting things. Very good value for money.
