Great activity, to do if you are on a getaway to Marseille. As close as possible to navigation advice and experience. Small less, no drinks planned during the 4 hours, better not to forget your bottle in view of the current heat. Thanks to the skipper and see you soon! We will do it again with pleasure.

This is the best way to enjoy the sea! Book this immediately. We had Siril as our instructor and he did an amazing job translating and jumping from French to English. We all got turns sailing and doing important tasks around the boat! It was a lovely way to see the coast line and meet new people.

A nice alternative afternoon for those who love the sea. We learned the basics of sailing and it was a great experience. I was sorry that there was not a little more time to relax in a few more dives and soak up the sun. Our instructor named Nico was very good and very nice, he also told us something about the history of Marseille and the islands we circumnavigated.
