wonderful day out on the sea

Global rating Quality/price Fun

This was a full day excursion where we were treated to wonderful scenic views of the Calanques. The captain was extremely knowledgeable and was very happy to answer any questions we had. The day went by very quickly because he made it interesting and broke up the day with a lovely lunch and then coffee and snacks before returning home. From booking the trip to returning back to port we didn't encounter any difficulties and the captain kept us entertained with his very engaging personality. If anyone I know books a trip to Marseille then myself and Olivier would definitely recommend this trip. I'm just sorry I've forgotten the captain's name!
