We did not experience this tour. We received our confirmation in French. We were on a cruise and when we got to the port in Corsica we found out that we needed to get to the excursion which was an hour away. Since we could not read our confirmation we had no idea. By the time we got someone to translate for us we had missed the tour. We are hoping that someone from TripAdvisor will read this review and refund our money.

This was a very good well organised trip on a fast but stable and well driven RIB. Despite the relatively large boat, the pilot was able to take us into many sea caves through arches and across rocks all of which you would have thought twice about or not done if you were driving yourself. We had a nice half day and saw dolphins just off Scandola which was lovely. Thoroughly recommended.

A very special experience to visit the calanques of Piana and see the sunset from the boat! Antoine was a very nice captain and gave lot of useful explanations. He adapted his drivign style to the wished of the passangers. A wonderful evening!

The trip started out very well, but at a certain point, our captain Antoine, was going much too fast when we encountered a wake from another boat. I was bounced out of my seat and feared I was going to be thrown out of the boat. Antoine did check in with me and the others to see that we were okay. However, as we were on our way back, returning to the landing, he accelerated the boat very fast and started to cut into the water to the left and to the right. He told me to “hold on tight,” but I was very frightened at that point after nearly being thrown out of the boat.

This boat trip must be amongst the best things I've donne done in my life so far! The personel was very helpful in getting us the best possible experience, seemed like the exactly knew what me and my mates were looking for. 2 boats took off of the lovely little port, each with an adapted speed to the people they were carrying (the elderly people were on the other boat). The staff was very friendly and gave us some useful advice for parking and where to sit on the boat.
I think I'd book this trip every day if I could!

Merci de la part des 3 alsaciens ! :)
... Und jetzt e geuts Bier comme on dirait chez nous ! 🍻
