The 12 seater high speed boat is a great experience, the captain is very knowledgable and explains in both French and English. This is the only way to see Scandola coastline, the boat is the right size to acces some of the caves. The captain...More

Nice to see Calvi and the surrounding cliffs from the water. Our skipper gave us a good commentary in French and English about the history of the town and the local landmarks. We did the 2 hour trip going to a cave south of Calvi....More
