Full description
Enjoy a private and custom cruise from Beaulieu-sur-Mer that's perfect for friends, families, and couples. Discover from the sea the most picturesque perspectives of the Côte d'Azur, such as Pointe-Sainte-Hospice, the Mont-Alban, and Eze village and Villa Leopolda. Start from Beaulieu's marina (Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis), between the city center of Monaco and Nice. Hop on an electric boat that's 100% solar-powered, silent, and odorless with the ability to cruise at a close distance to points of interest. Accompanied by a private guide, glide quietly over the crystal-clear waters. Soak up the spectacular coastline of the Riviera Heartland while passing near memorable yachts, villas, and other sights. As an added perk, the boat is also license-free, so you can take the opportunity to drive as well under the guidance of your private skipper guide. At the end of the tour, return to Beaulieu-sur-Mer's marina.

We highly recommend this boat tour! It was the perfect way to start our trip and see the beautiful coastline. Our guide was very kind and very knowledgeable about the locations we sailed past. The boat is solar powered which makes it very quiet and it’s extremely comfortable with room to stretch out. We sailed in the morning and I’m sure sailing in the evening when the sun is setting is absolutely beautiful too! Don’t delay, book this now and soak in the beauty of the South of France!

The seazen is aptly named: a calm, gentle stroll, embellished with comments and anecdotes from “peoples” in an idyllic setting. The MUST is a short swim in crystal clear water with a solar electric boat without any engine noise or smell… TOP. A big thank you and ride to do again… Tom

This boat excursion was so much fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. Plus, he allows you to customize your time, so we stopped and jumped into the sea! It was fabulous! Another good point is the solar point is environmentally friendly and had no exhaust fumes. I would encourage you to book a tour!
