Some exciting itinerary suggestions for your day boat charter from the beautiful Antibes. Go to Cannes or Monaco to experience an amazing day on the water.

Day boat charter itinerary suggestions departing from Antibes

There is so much choice. I simply suggest considering how much fuel you wish to spend, as the further you go the more this will cost. Another thing to consider is how important is comfort for the people onboard? If this is an important feature be sure to hire a boat which will be comfortable.  The further you travel, the less comfortable your passengers may be. If you are hiring your day boat with a skipper, then they will be able to suggest the best day boat charter itinerary and should know all the secrets, so don’t be scared to simply ask your skipper to be your personal Riviera guide. If you are driving the boat yourself (you must have a suitable boat drivers license in France) the following acts as a suggested, simple, yet fun day boat charter itinerary.

1) From Antibes, coming out of the port and turning right (East) brings you around to the cap d’Antibes – famous for beautiful villas, lovely coves and beaches. There are lots of nice spots along here to swim, snorkel, picnic, jump off your boat etc… Going on from here on your boat charter brings you past Juan Les Pins, Golfe Juan and to Cannes; the glitz and glamour of movie stars and across from Cannes are two islands (you will see them, they cant be missed) – people spend the whole day just bopping around the islands on their boat charters, again pretty and nice water for swimming. This simple route can easily be a full day out.

2) Alternatively as a boat charter itinerary you could do the above and/or from Antibes cruise all along the coast passing Nice, to the Bay of Villefranche (only 3 knots in here), beautiful, the view of the old town looks great from the water. On further around Cap Ferrat (famous for super stars and some of the most expensive houses in the world including that of Paul Alan). On around the coast to Eze sur Mer (summer home to Bona from U2). This area from Beaulieu sur Mer to Cap D’ail has some impressive scenery, nice beaches and famous beach restaurants.

Fancy then going further to see Monaco? From Cap d’Ail it is just around the corner. Bare in mind it is a busy port, so drive your boat with caution. Seeing Monaco from this perspective is however very impressive. This Antibes – Monaco trip return will cost more on fuel than option 1 to the Cannes islands. On your boat charter be sure to arrive prepared – lots of water, suncream and a picnic. Always be safe on the water.
