Cruises in Paris

Romantic, offbeat, enchanting ... a cruise on the River Seine is always an unforgettable moment.

If there is a trip not to miss out on in Paris, it has to be one along the Seine riverbanks … aboard one of the boats that navigate up and down! As you glide by, you’ll marvel at the city’s finest monuments, including Notre-Dame, the Conciergerie, the Grand Palais and the Eiffel Tower. A prestigious procession of amazing sights that makes it a unique trip.

You might like to take a boat trip for example on one of the famous Bateaux-Mouches or on the elegant Bateau Ivre Maxim’s to see the capital’s iconic sights. Les Vedettes de Paris and Vedettes du Pont Neuf also offer different types of cruises, such as the ‘Paris by night’ tour, which gives you another perspective on the city: with its bridges and monuments lit up, it takes on the appearance of a giant film set. Please note that the Vedettes de Paris, offer cruises for children: great for little fresh-water sailors. Or add some extra sparkle to your romantic getaway with a La Parisienne champagne cruise offered by Vedettes du Pont Neuf! For a more original cruise, come aboard the Parisducktour® : a "slow tourism" experience with a 3 in 1 offer : minibus tour, a boat tour and a guided & commented tour!

Cruises on the Canal Saint-Martin

Although the Seine is the iconic river of the City of Light, there are other navigable waterways in Paris! The Canal Saint-Martin is also a great place for an original and picturesque boat trip. With its locks to pass through and swing bridges, it attracts lovers of an authentic Paris full of charm.  

The Musee d'Orsay, the Philharmonie and the Geode feature for example on the programme of the canal cruise proposed by Paris Canal. The Canauxrama boats offer several types of cruises ranging from a discovery tour of the Paris of Parisians to an exploration of the Marne riverbanks on a day trip!

And to captain one’s own boat, Marin d’eau douce rents out boats for people to cruise along the canal at their own pace! A unique opportunity to discover Paris from along the water.
