Let’s go to sea from the most beautiful and oldest city in France:  Marseille.

8 amDeparture

We will pick you up by minivan to take you directly to the Old Port of Marseille  where a fully prepared boat will be waiting for you to start your excursion.

10 amFrioul islands - boat cruise

We will start our excursion by approaching the Frioul Islands – and – The Island of If, and its castle. This fortress, built under the orders of François I between  1527 and 1529, essentially served as a prison during its first 400 official years  of use. And it was she who inspired Alexandre Dumas in his immensely famous  novel “Le Comte du Monte-Christo” published in 1844.

12 amLunch in Calanques

We will then leave these Islands to set sail for Marseille to reach the Calanques National Park, where we will anchor in a quiet and discreet cove with  transparent and placid waters, where we will have lunch under the sun.

Accompanied by your sommelier guide, we will of course take the opportunity  to taste a local wine and learn all about the wine of Provence.

1 pmLittle break

The time will come for a nap for some, or a swim in heavenly water for others.

3 pmWalk through History

On the way back, we will test your skills as sailors downwind to the south to the Old Port and tell the story of Marseille’s spirit, its warm and festive culture and  its indomitable temperament; but also its maritime history, that of the various capes that make up its coastline; as well as recognition of its flora and fauna. 

5 pmBack home

Finally when you arrive at the Port, the Driver will take you to your place of residence.
