Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Nice’s harbor and climb aboard your awaiting ferry for the scenic cruise along the French Riviera to Monaco. Absorb splendid ocean views as you sail and then disembark at the world’s second smallest country approximately 45 minutes later.

Gaze at the grand and unforgettable panorama of the Port of Monaco; admire luxurious yachts bobbing in the water and relish the sight of opulent palaces perched on rocky outcrops overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. 

Customize your itinerary to include the attractions that capture your interest and set out to explore Monaco independently; please note that all refreshments and entrance fees are purchased at your own expense. Head to the Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) to stroll amid the botanical beauty of the verdant expanse; descend to the subterranean Grottoe de L’Observatoire to see a network of prehistoric caves; or catch a glimpse of Mediterranean marine life at Musée Océanographique, an aquarium perched on top of a cliff. 

See, too, the opulent grandeur of the Casino of Monte Carlo and the palatial façade of the Prince’s Palace before visiting a local bar or restaurant for some gourmet dishes and refreshing beverages. Reconvene with your group at a pre-arranged time and then board the ferry for the scenic return journey to Nice.

A brilliant way to travel from Nice to Monaco. The views along the way are stunning and this is much more fun than the train. Great commentary on the return trip and the crew on board were lovely.

Perfect way to see Monaco

We loved traveling to Monaco by boat for the amazing views of the Cote d'Azur. The ferry was easy to find and the ride was great! The crew was helpful and pointed out celebrity homes along the ride. We enjoyed our day in Monaco and are glad we took this cruise.

The boat trip was very nice. Monaco itself was kind of boring. If I was to do an excursion again I would Likely cross the border into Italy and see the Roman ruins.

We enjoyed this cruise and found it a great way to enjoy the views along the coastline. It offered the perfect amount of time to explore Monaco on our own. The captain and the guide were knowledgeable and accommodating. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because we had a difficult time hearing the tour guide. It could have been a result of us opting to sit in the back of the boat rather than inside or up above. I would recommend this cruise. What a great way to get to Monaco!

A wonderful day out. Scenery on both the boat trip to Monaco and in Monaco itself was spectacular. Seeing how the other half live with Ferraris etc driving around everywhere was fun and having the opportunity to just explore for ourselves once we got there was great. As Monaco is so small there was plenty of time to take it all in. Highly recommend getting the hop on hop off bus which leaves not far from where the boat arrives to take in all the sights. Guide on the boat was very knowledgable in showing us all the houses of the rich and famous along the Riviera coastline on the way home.
