It is possible to experience similar enjoyment cruising Cannes on a small (cheap) boat rental, as it is on a yacht. So you may not have the top class service that a luxury yacht charter will provide, but you will have the same views and the same magical feeling of the fresh sea air blowing through your hair on a small day boat charter. On a day boat charter off the coast of Cannes the Lerin Islands are not to be missed. Situated only a few miles from the Croisette in Cannes, the Lerin Islands are an idyllic and protected natural environment, with an interesting blend of natural flora and fauna.
