Rent a boat with a skipper for a private cruise in the Calanques National Park to discover the wild natural landscapes in their preserved state by boat.

You will meet the captain at La Ciotat or Cassis port then board your boat and set sail for a private excursion into the famous Calanques of Provence. Whether at En-vau, Sormiou or even Morgiou, you'll be able to admire the famous bays and take advantage of swimming stops to refresh yourself in the crystalline turquoise water that surround you. You can even observe the marine flora and fauna using a mask and snorkel, which will be available on board.

The skipper, a native of the area, will take you to hidden coves, unknown to the public, for a unique getaway. The itinerary is predefined but you may personalize the cruise to spend your time the way you please. The basic itineraries vary depending on the chosen duration (see "Itinerary" document below for full details).

With a maximum capacity of 10 passengers, comfort and intimacy await you aboard for this relaxing trip aboard a boat equipped with sunbathing lounge chairs, a small shower with warm water, an ice box and snorkelling material. Thanks to its compact size and motor, your boat will carry you to unusual, out-of-the-way spots in the Calanques for an exclusive and special cruise!

At the end of your trip, your skipper will accompany you back to the port.


Booking notice: For this activity, you book the use of the entire boat along with the services of a skipper. You are therefore not asked to specify the number of passengers but rather the number of boats that you want to reserve.

By  booking 1 boat, a maximum of 10 passengers can participate in the cruise.
