There were only nine of us on board, probably due to it being a combination of the virus impact and it being changeover day for many holidaymakers. Anyway, the trip was really enjoyable, taking a full 2 hours. On the way there, you keep quite close to the coastline, but on the way back it's more of a straight line in open sea, albeit faster. We've walked the full route many times, and round Cap Ferrat many times more than that, but on the boat trip we saw some fabulous houses just above the path that we never even knew existed. A bonus for us was actually sailing into Monaco's main harbour, which we weren't expecting. The commentary in English was informative and seemed pretty close to the French original, so we didn't lose much if anything. Highly recommended, especially for the great views of Villefranche from the water

A truly wonderful town. Stunning beach and location. The beach area has been used for several film locations such as "Sorry rotten scoundrels " and "absolutely fabulous " . Getting to the beach is a longish down hill trot. However it's not the getting too, it's the getting back. The beach resort is is only accessible via either a lot of steps or step gradients. If you have any physical disability you will find it difficult especially the return trip back up to the town/village. I saw no facilities for wheelchair access. Having said that that I did see elderly people walking around. Restaurants are not cheap but not as expensive as mainline equivalents of Nice. The beach is made up of small shingle stone and is fine for walki g on. Being in a bay the sea is calm and sheltered. Worth a visit.

We did the 4 hour dolphin tour (last one for season) and would have been happy with the views from the ocean! Saw oodles of dolphins. Good size boat, didn't feel crowded. Having an aero plane help locate dolphin groups is brilliant!

My daughter booked me this trip for my birthday and it was an amazing experience. First off you don't just sail coast side but actually get to go into the sea which I absolutely loved. No land in sight for 4 hours. The information given throughout the trip was very informative and I actually learned quite a lot from what we were told about these animals and their surroundings. We encountered a group of dolphins which is an amazing experience to just drift side by side with these beautiful animals. We did get to see a whale on our return as well. We were told it was only a baby whale although its size was considerable. Overall one of the best boat experiences I have so far. I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys drifting at sea.

We went out with them on a trip today for a morning of dolphin and whale watching. We encountered a group of dolphin mothers and babies, which was great. The company is nice, but I would have liked some more information about the animals we could see. They gave information once we encounterede the dolphins which was very educative. It would have been nice to have some more information about the other possible animals to see. The boat is comfortable, They have a plane that scans the area to make the chance of spotting animals greater. It does get reasonably crowded on the boat when everybody wants to take photos, but you do get a chance to see things despite the amount of people on board.
