Description

Top destination on the French Riviera, Cannes attracts more than 3 million visitors a year. If the world-famous red carpet contributes to its fame, it would not be enough to justify such a craze.


We take you on a discovery of the Mediterranean wealth of Cannes far away from celebrity magazines.


Let our captains guide you in the heart of the Estérel natural parks for an unusual 2.5-hour sea excursion. Get away from the crowds for the pleasure of the whole family; the question is how long are you going to hesitate to dive into the clearwater of your private cove …?


Nicknamed the “Corniche d’Or” by the local people, you will be amazed by this unique spectacle in the world which will only be offered to you from the sea. With more than 5,000 visitors per year, our nautical excursions are accessible to all, starting from our base in the Port du Béal in Cannes la Bocca with several departures per day. Our fast boats take on 12 passengers for a privileged discovery of the French Riviera daily.

Interessant, spaßig und netter Guide (Romanne)

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Schöne kleine Rundfahrt mit einigen interessanten Details der Küste und den dort ansässigen Prominenten. Zwei Stationen an denen man kurz ins Wasser springen kann. Die Bilder der Homepage sind tatsächlich etwas schöner, als es in Wirklichkeit war. Ein zweites Mal würde ich nicht buchen, aber die Kinder fanden es toll.

Terrific experience!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Fantastic boat tour, definitely worth the money, would love to do it again. Captain was great and did both French and English. The swim time was fun but make sure to bring your own goggles or snorkel.

Perfect Speedboat / Snorkling adventure

Global rating Quality/price Fun

It was a great excursion, a perfect trip in length/experience. We have only one uncomfortable situation, our captain could not speak in English however we indicated before departure our lack of French.

Provider response

Hi Torda, thank for your note, have a good day!

Nice trip, more for French speaking

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We had a nice boat trip with the Black Tenders. This piece of coast is beautiful. Don’t expect too much of the stops, the snorkeling or the ‘translated’ guiding. That’s all pretty mediocre. Our guide had his saying in French for the French-speaking passengers, recorded what he said with a translation computer and then played it via a little speaker for the non-French. Most of it was hard to understand and poorly translated.

Provider response

Hi Caroline, thanks for your feel back, have a good holidays.

If you want to Snorkel, don't go!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

It was supposed to be 2.5 hours, it only lasted 2 hours. It is called a Snorkeling experience, but they didn't provide any snorkeling equipment. We had our snorkeling masks so that was good, but we were in the water for only 12 minutes in an area where there was nothing of worth to see.

Provider response

Hi Dan, thanks for your fell back, also we use to lend the snorkeling masks but since the COVID we are not allowed anymore, sorry for the misunderstanding, hope you a good day.

Hi Mark, we are happy to know that you enjoyed the experience. Thank you for your comment!

Great experience

Global rating Quality/price Fun

We were really happy with the boat excursion. They were really prepared, even provided a life jacket if someone doesn't feel confident in swimming. The only negative thing was that our captain didn't speak English and it was hard to communicate with him, asking questions etc. One of the other attendees was speaking French and translated us but still it would be better if we could communicate more with the captain so he can tell us interesting stories about the region. Everything else was perfect! Highly recommend it! ❤️

It was a great experience-Alex and his associate made us welcome. We loved the commentary as they pointed out different places and homes (ie-Pierre Cardin) and stopped so we could swim in the beautiful waters. Well worth it!

Great trip! Great Skipper!

Global rating Quality/price Fun

I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Our skipper was great and showed us lots of caves and coves that we would not have seen other than by rib. It is also a beautiful stretch of coastline !

Great experience. Had two teens and boats are light and fast-they enjoyed the ride and scenery was beautiful. Our guide talked just enough but not too much. Would do again. Good value. A little out of the way from Nice but not to difficult to get there between train and Uber.

Provider response

Dear Kelly, many thanks for your review. We are very happy that you and your teens enjoy the ride :) Hope to see back. Our best
