Excursions from Marseille
If you are not a hiker, but would like to discover the calanques, excursions aboard a private boat will more than satisfy you. Numerous shipping companies offer the visit of the Calanques in the form of a boat trip with or without a stopover (here, stopover does not mean disembarking on land, it means a stop at sea for a swim, as access to the Calanques is strictly regulated). If you opt for the cruise with a stopover, you will be able to dive into the turquoise waters of the most beautiful beaches before setting off again for the rest of your trip. Departures are from Marseille, Cassis or La Ciotat. However, we recommend that you leave from Marseille, as you will be treated to a spectacle of great beauty for the eyes. You will be able to enjoy a view of the harbour of Marseille, the Frioul islands, the If Castle as well as the Marseilleveyre massif.
