Take part in our boat trip in the heart of the Calanques and discover the secrets of these fabulous creeks. Departing from the Vieux-Port of Marseille, you will embark on a journey of about 3 hours, in the middle of nature. After crossing the harbour of Marseille, we will pass in front of the magnificent Cap Croisette and arrive at the first Calanque of the National Park: the Callelongue Calanque. Small huts overlooking the port make this cove unique. Then we will see the wild calanques of Marseilleveyre and La Mounine before entering the Riou archipelago, a protected nature reserve home to many seabirds. Our next visit will be to the famous Sormiou. Continuing northwards, we will approach the calanque de la Triperie, home to the Cosquer cave, before arriving at Morgiou. This pearl of the Phocaean city is home to a small traditional fishing port. The next creeks are Sugiton, where you can observe the rocky islet called le Torpilleur, and the Eye of Glass, atypical because of its brown spot in the middle of the cliff. We will also discover the calanque of Devenson and the sublime Eissadon peaks. Between the cliffs of Belvedere, the calanque of Oule offers a grandiose landscape to all its visitors.
