Paddleboards, kiteboards, parasailing, waterskiing, and wakeboarding other popular options for sporty tourists looking to get a good adrenaline rush.

    Due to licensing regulations in the French Riviera, jet-skiing is not as popular for thrill seekers in Provence. The closest operator is not actually in Provence, and you need to ride with someone who already has their license.

    About Provence

    Provence is a gorgeous region in the south of France. It’s known for beautiful beaches, lavender fields, and unbelievable restaurants. There are many charming cities throughout Provence to visit, all about ten minutes apart by car. The most popular towns are on the coast, also known as the French Riviera.

    The best time of year to visit Provence is early to mid-fall when the temperatures are still warm but the summer holiday crowds have dispersed. The temperature during this time is in the mid-70s. The prices will be much more reasonable in September & October than during the summer months of June through August. Bonus - you won’t have to fight for a spot to lay out your beach towel.

    Spring is also a good time to visit, as flowers are in full bloom, making the city appear very lush. Winter is a cold season and sees less desirable weather, but it has the most inexpensive hotel rates.

    There are different major cities to visit when going to Provence. You can take a flight to Marseille or Nice, or take a train to one of the smaller cities in Provence. If you plan on visiting during the peak summer seasons, booking a hotel reservation far in advance is crucial. Prices will spike during this time and many accommodation options get completely booked up.

      Beautiful Boat Flyer 7,7 Sundeck with Skipper Pro and Seabob Cayago

      Very nice boat ride. He took us to the area with shallow and pristine water. Enjoy the whole trip. Simple sunbathing on a nice day out is what we need after two years.

      Cranchi Turchese 24 in Cannes - SEABOB

      Raphael was a great host for our family of 5 (and dog). He made us feel very welcome on his boat and customised the itinerary to suit our needs. He found us quiet spots to visit les Iles de Lerins. good spots for swimming and was knowledgeable about the area.

      Cranchi Turchese 24 in Cannes - SEABOB

      Amazing location for the trip. You leave from Vieux Port in Cannes, a great way to depart Cannes. We had a wonderful trip up the coast, went snorkelling between the islands and sailed around the islands home. Raphaël is a great captain and host. Very nice and easy going. Great memory of a day at sea. Strongly recommended and great value.

      Cruising Cinque terre with 18 People Motor Yacht

      FABULOUS crew and boat. My family had a great day on the boat and viewing the Cinque Terre. The crew was extremely flexible in allowing us to stop and swim and return to the shore with my elderly parents and then allowed the rest of us to still enjoy the afternoon on the boat!! Highly recommended!!!
