  • Round-Trip Ferry Ticket: Cannes to Ste. Marguerite Island

    1. Round-Trip Ferry Ticket: Cannes to Ste. Marguerite Island

    Book your round-trip ferry tickets in advance for a visit to Ste. Marguerite Island from Cannes. As soon as you disembark on the island, you’ll be captivated by the fragrance of pine and eucalyptus. Follow the marked trails that take you on a botanical and historical tour of the island. The walk takes you by Batéguier Pond, where numerous species of migratory birds can be seen, and to the Point de la Convention, where you’ll find unique plant species. Continue on to Fort Royal, the former residence of the legendary Man in the Iron Mask. The Maritime Museum, sheltered within a fortified enclosure, also offers an invaluable insight into the area's history. Dogs are welcome on board the ferry, and on Sainte Marguerite Island, provided they are on leash.

    The ferry was on time and the ride was super smooth. I am easily sea sick and I felt great the whole time.

  • Saint-Laurent-du-Var: 4-Hour Fishing Trip

    7. Saint-Laurent-du-Var: 4-Hour Fishing Trip

    After meeting at the port of Saint-Laurent-du-Var, head off on your guide’s boat into the waters of the Mediterranean to start your fishing adventure. Perfect for amateurs and pros alike, this experience is catered to your skill level. Make use of provided cutting-edge fishing equipment to make sure you catch the biggest fish in the waters. As you skim over the stunning waters of the French Côte d’Azur, gaze back over the seaside cliffs and greenery from a new perspective. Using a variety of techniques, including trolling with with lures and live bait, spinning with lures, and jigging, you’ll have the best chance to catch a variety of fish, including Amberjack, Barracuda, Bonita, Tuna, Bluefish, Dentex, and Grouper. You’ll have the opportunity to take home your catch, within the limits of respectful fishing.

    We enjoyed our time fishing. Our guide was a great fisherman but he could have been a better guide. We didn't really learn how to do things ourselves. He usually cast and then handed us the line when there was a fish on. We would have preferred more instruction on how to do it ourselves. The communication was a bit difficult given the language barrier. Given the price point of this option compared to others that we looked at we think it was a good deal and we got just about what we paid for. Not sure we would book again just because we wanted a slightly different experience. If you're novice fishers looking for a low price point I would recommend this experience.

Guillermo was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful thought the whole tour. We stop to swim in open waters and enjoy the warm waters. It’s a must do if you visit Nice!!!

Smooth organization and smooth process. With pleasure again. Unfortunately without any observance and consideration of the Corona rules. So himself is the man / woman.

Wonderful and relaxing way to get on the sea and beat the heat for a couple hours. Loved swimming and cruising, super relaxing and comfortable ride.

Excellent one hour cruise showing some highlights around Nice and Villefranche-Sur-Mer!
