What you'll do

Good morning all,
I invite you to share, during a cruise, my boat the Macao, a classic wooden trawler grand banks 42 of 13 meters, historic and comfortable.
We will sail south towards Antibes, the bay of La Garoupe and its crystal-clear water surrounded by a pine forest of umbrella pines. During the navigation, I will discuss with you the unmissable places of the coast.
The paddles are waiting for you, if you spend more time in the water than on the board, even if it will make your friends laugh, I will give you some advice.
Snorkeling kits (fins, mask, snorkel) are available to explore the seabed.
The Macao's flybridge (roof top) allows you to gain height without being crowded and lends itself to a moment of relaxation.
The large sun loungers on the roof are in place to grill in the sun.
Access to swimming is easy and a freshwater shower is available.
The height of the boat also allows you to practice diving.
Refrigerator, freezer and gas hobs are at your disposal.
Other things to note
This is a maritime experience, the boat will pitch and roll a little depending on the sea conditions, do not hesitate to take medicine against motion sickness if necessary.

My wife and I spent a wonderful afternoon leisurely cruising down the Côte d’Azur. Toni was kind, courteous, and personable; a much better experience than a more generic option.

We had an amazing time on Toni’s boat. He is a warm, gracious and lively host. He made our experience with our 3 year old daughter very comfortable. The boat is in great condition, and equipped with all amenities. Toni knows a lot about the region, and takes you to a beautiful spot where you can swim/ snorkel/ paddle boat. We even spotted a dolphin on our way back. Overall, highly recommended!

Me and my partner booked the trip last minute with Toni and we are so glad that we did! We had the most amazing time, and were lucky enough to see a beautiful dolphin on our way out to sea and on the way back!! He made us feel so comfortable and gave us some great recommendations on other things to do during our travels! I couldn’t recommend this trip enough, and I’m sure we will be back!

My friends and I had the best day with Tony. He was very welcoming and showed us breathtaking views on the water. He took us to a cove where we could swim and look at the fish under the clear blue water. Truthfully I was uncertain about participating in this activity since it was our last day on vacation. But I had a fantastic time and it ended up being the perfect way to end our girls trip. I recommend Tony's experience to anyone. You'll have a blast!

Toni offers an authentic experience on the Macao -- We made rendezvous easily and Toni showed me the boat. Weather conditions were favorable and so we got underway as soon as all guests arrived. Toni offered us either space, or conversation, as was our desire. We went to Garoupe and anchored so we could swim and spend about 2hrs there. Toni offered music and some nosh. It was a wonderful, easy afternoon on the water. I greatly appreciated Toni's easy going and still professional hosting. It felt like a day out with a new acquaintance, and was very enjoyable. I recommend this trip. Do note -- weather changes fast on the sea - Toni was very considerate and cautious to ensure the weather offered a safe and enjoyable afternoon. I reschedule with Toni from Thursday to Saturday, and it was worth the patience to do so.
