Port Cros, Giens, Porquerolles

A sea kayaking Island Hoping in Cote d’Azur


Discover the treasures of the Var coast with a captivating itinerary including Porquerolles Island, Levant Island, Port Cros Island, Giens Peninsula, and Brégançon Fort.

These gems are part of the first and largest French National Marine Park, nestled in the heart of the Îles d’Or archipelago.

Join us for a week of sea kayaking escapade in a small group of 4 to 8 people, exploring one of the most beautiful stretches of the French coastline. Each evening, our accommodation takes on a unique dimension aboard our catamaran, our floating hotel that adds an entirely new dimension to the adventure. The sailboat provides an authentic itinerant experience in sea kayaking, joining us each night in a new location based on our progress.

If weather conditions prevent us from paddling in sea kayaks, our experienced skipper will introduce you to the basics of sailing navigation. You will have the opportunity to take the helm and participate in maneuvers if you wish.


The Venezia 42 catamaran, our floating base, provides all the necessary comforts for a delightful onboard experience in an exceptional setting: 4 double cabins, 2 single cabins, 2 bathrooms, and a spacious deck where you can not only store the kayaks but also relax, sunbathe, enjoy sunsets, gaze at the stars, or simply listen to the gentle lapping of the sea against the boat’s hull.

Each night, you’ll stay in the same cabin, but in a different location. At each stop, you’ll have the opportunity to swim before indulging in a delicious meal made from local and organic products.

In the Islands of Hyères, accommodations are scarce, making the sailboat the best possible choice. Mobile, the catamaran joins us each evening in a new location, allowing us to fully explore this exceptional site. Moreover, it proves useful for crossing from Porquerolles to Port Cros or providing rest for those who desire it during a stage.

Immerse yourself in a true sea kayaking adventure in the heart of these preserved islands, where all bivouacs are strictly prohibited.

Embark on a unique journey, combining maritime exploration and unparalleled comfort aboard our catamaran.
