Full description

Discover the postcard-worthy Côte Bleue calanque as you ride a kayak past beautiful bays, striking cliffs, and quaint little homes. Follow your guide from Estaque in Marseille, all the way to Carry-le-Rouet, for a comprehensive overview of this gorgeous natural area.

After a short briefing, route presentation, and weather report, head out with all the necessary knowledge to have a fun and safe experience. Explore the creeks of Establon and Aragnols with a beautiful little beach. Depending on the group's pace, you might even be able to reach the magnificent Figuerolles creek.

Learn about each little hidden corner from your certified guide and admire the mindblowing rocky sceneries as you float along. Additionally, you can do your part to take care of the local sea life by picking up floating waste and loading it into the bag your kayak comes equipped with.

Beginners are advised to choose the morning tour, as the sea is generally calmer than in the afternoon.

A great experience! Our guide was so friendly and made sure everyone was ok throughout the trip. They also rented out water shoes for those of us who didn’t bring appropriate footwear. We kayaked over waves which was so much fun and we had the most beautiful views of the cliffs, train tracks and Marseilles. Would definitely recommend this company!

It's hard work, but really fun and interesting. Our guide was very accommodating and helpful, and had a wealth of information to share. Things not mentioned in the description : you will enter the water with your shoes. If you're not comfortable doing that with your own shoes, you can rent a pair of water shoes onsite for a small fee.
