All the tours from Ota Porto to Scandola and Calanque do the same thing. The main difference is whether you go in a zodiac with a small group (about 12) without shade, or a larger boat such as this company with about 40 people on board and shade. And whether you do the tours to Scandola (better in the morning) and Calanque (better in the afternoon) together or separately. This company is cheaper than the zodiac tours, especially if you want to do the two tours separately.
The explanation is mostly in French with some English, but you don't miss much if you don't understand French because the captain's jokes are pretty lame and a lot of the information is about what the rock formations look like (a hippo, the nose of Gerard Depardieu).
The "eco" aspect of this company is nonsense, because the electric engine is not used at all on the Calanque tour and only for about 15 minutes on the Scandola tour.
The boat is pretty comfortable with good seats and shade. The only drawback from the larger boat is that you have to move around for the best views, which can be difficult if the boat is completely full.
But in the end what's most important is the beauty of Scandola and Calanque.

We had a very poor experience with this company. They canceled the last trip of the day without notice as there were not enough passengers. They reacted very badly and claimed that it was our problem. Got our money back but no help whatsoever in finding an alternative. Heard later on that this company does this more. Really a very poor experience.

We did the Tour Complet which involved the Scandola Reserve, Girolata, the Calanche and Capo Rosso. What a trip it was! We stopped at Girolata for about 40 minutes, time for a drink and a wander around this tiny beach complete with cattle! The scenery on the trip was breath-taking, truly unique. The boat has seating for all passengers and is open at the sides so you are able to see everything. A fabulous trip, highly recommended.

Excellent trip (tour complet) which included Scandola and Girolata as well as the Calanches and Capo Rosso. Informative commentary in French with occasional recorded elements in English. Reasonable French is all you need to understand the commentary, though the jokes did pass me by . Stunning scenery, comfortable boat, not too crowded. Pleasant crew.....well worth the €47. Highly recommended

Very nice trip! They offer 3 options. Each of them is great. I strongly reccomend the longest one. Great views. Superb experience!
(+) nice and friendly staff
(-) HYBRID- ha, ha, ha ;-))) The boat is sailing 100 minutes on diesel engine (though quiet and not stincky!!!) and 5 miutes on electric engine ;-)))) - HYBRID just marketing trick...
