Je reste un peu mitigée sur mon expérience ... les + : les calanques sont magnifiques et nous avons fait un parcours très sympa avec peu de monde. Les infos, les anecdotes et le guide était sympathique. Les- : je ne digère pas encore d’avoir payé une tel différence de prix entre le prix réel et la prestation proposée sur airbnb. Il faudrait peut être évité d’afficher le prix réel sur le quai pour ne pas démarrer la journée avec ce sentiment d’arnaque. Nous n’avons pas pu naviguer sur le voilier car trop peu de monde avait réservé. On nous propose la veille une autre prestation car nous sommes que 6 personnes. Résultat le matin : on se retrouve à 12 sur un bateau vraiment trop petit pour 12 personnes (a peine de la place pour que tout le monde se pose en extérieur. Obligé de manger debout). Soit disant l’option bateau électrique est plus exclusive ... je n’ai vraiment pas en ce sentiment ... j’ai terminé la journée sur une note amère et trop chère à mon goût. Nous en avons parlé à notre guide mais Il n’a trouvé aucune arrangement (car ce n’était pas avec lui que j’avais eu les échanges) mais personne ne nous a contacté par la suite.

Pour le prix, je m'attendais à un buffet plus copieux et plus diversifié (j'avais clairement faim à la fin de l'expérience) et j'aurais souhaité que l'hôte soit plus chaleureux et plus enthousiaste. C'était bien mais on s'attend à une prestation de plus haute qualité au regard du prix de la journée.

Super expérience, nous nous sommes vraiment amusés. Le voilier est magnifique et le fait que l'ont soit en comité reduit, rend l'excursion plus interessante et plus intime. Ça change des excursions touristiques. Les calanques choisis a visiter sont très jolies, et le skippeur nous fait participer a la vie sur le bateau Dans l'ensemble je recommande cette excursion vraiment TOP!

Thanks very much for this beautiful experience! Unfortunately the day we made the trip, the weather conditions were a bit stormy, so we could not go very close to the reef. But it was still a memorable and very beautiful experience. The boat was more than awesome! Also the food was very good. Thanks so much to the crew! :)
