Full description
Enjoy a private and custom cruise from Beaulieu-sur-Mer that's perfect for friends, families, and couples. Discover from the sea the most picturesque perspectives of the Côte d'Azur, such as Pointe-Sainte-Hospice, the Mont-Alban, and Eze village and Villa Leopolda. Start from Beaulieu's marina (Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis), between the city center of Monaco and Nice. Hop on an electric boat that's 100% solar-powered, silent, and odorless with the ability to cruise at a close distance to points of interest. Accompanied by a private guide, glide quietly over the crystal-clear waters. Soak up the spectacular coastline of the Riviera Heartland while passing near memorable yachts, villas, and other sights. As an added perk, the boat is also license-free, so you can take the opportunity to drive as well under the guidance of your private skipper guide. At the end of the tour, return to Beaulieu-sur-Mer's marina.

A very comfortable and relaxing tour. Our guide was very welcoming and also knew a lot about the area and its history. We were late for our appointment, but was even offered a complimentary half-an-hour trip later the same day. While we couldn’t make it, we found that generous beyond any expectation. We got the sense that he really cared for his customers.

There is always a piece of magic that turns a vacation into a special experience. Our family spent 2 hours on Guillaume’s solar powered boat floating around Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and swimming in the mediterranean sea. Guillaume is a great host and shared information about the villas and the history of the area which made our time very special.

We highly recommend this boat tour! It was the perfect way to start our trip and see the beautiful coastline. Our guide was very kind and very knowledgeable about the locations we sailed past. The boat is solar powered which makes it very quiet and it’s extremely comfortable with room to stretch out. We sailed in the morning and I’m sure sailing in the evening when the sun is setting is absolutely beautiful too! Don’t delay, book this now and soak in the beauty of the South of France!
