What people are saying about Provence

Despite skipper Denis having limited English, and us having equally limited French, we all managed to communicate beautifully and had a wonderful afternoon sailing around the Frioul Islands. We are experienced yachties, but the couple with us were not, however, together we hoisted, trimmed and took the sails down, and generally had a very relaxing sail. It gives a completely different view of Marseilles. We thoroughly recommend the half day sail.

We had an outstanding day sailing on the Mediterranean sea in Marseille! That said, budget extra time to find the meeting location as we had trouble finding it.

Outstanding experience with a beautiful landscape. Thanks to our guide Marco, who was very helpful and attentive to guide us. Super recommended experience!

Amazing trip to the Calanques. Our driver Miles was brilliant and the boat was really special. I would really recommend this trip. Perfect length.

Romain was great, awesome energy chasing bubbles of anchovies to catch some delicious Tuna.
