As might be guessed from its name, the Vedettes du Pont-Neuf boats leave from a pier next to the famous Pont-Neuf bridge. They operate a one hour sightseeing cruise all year round, 20 a day in high season and 12-14 in low season.
Route map with comments and there are also some videos on their site, including one showing the 400th anniversary of Henry IVth murder celebrations!
Vedettes du Pont-Neuf have four boats, with the smallest Sisley seating 72 (50 when used as a restaurant), others 350-550.
Take the staircase leading down from the Pont-Neuf bridge to the Vedettes du Pont-Neuf pier and Captain's Bar Snack Bar (which serves takeaway drinks)
