Embarking from Port Hercule or the small port of Fontvieille in the morning, you have four main route options:

Local tour: Roquebrune Cap Ferrat, Menton

This lesser-known – and probably less crowded in high season… – destination is well worth a visit for its hidden coves, accessible only by boat, and impressive coastline views between Monaco and Roquebrune.

The majestic bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer is a must-see with its old-style villas and lush greenery, while the small gulf of St-Hospice is unique with
its crystal-clear waters and majestic stone trees. Don’t miss the impressive limestone cliffs at La Mala.

” For the second time, we have had an amazing day charter with Charterminute. The boat was incredible for our party of 12 to enjoy all day, and we had a wonderful and attentive crew.

Fairly last minute, we ended up needing a larger boat than expected and Remi was beyond kind with assisting us. He also assisted us with reservations and made sure the entire day was seemless. 10/10 recommend! “
