Paris Tourist Sightseeing Boats

Vedettes de Paris logoVedettes de Paris

(Previous page: Paris Tourist Sightseeing Boats Vedettes du Pont-Neuf )

The Vedettes de Paris prides itself on using "real boats with a human scale where a warm welcome and a relaxing atmosphere are the golden rule"; in other words, they're a bit smaller than the leviathans used by their competitors. The Etolie holds just 50 for dinner, and the Paris Iena and Trocadero only 40. Paris Montmartre and the Paris Montparnasse are also anything but glass-enclosed giants -they've been going since 1999!

They operate one hour sightseeing cruises throughout the year, 2 hours dinner cruises and various other options.

Location:

The Vedettes de Paris ticket office and embarkation pier is at Port de Suffren, just to the west of the Pont Iéna (on the left as you look at the Seine from the Eiffel Tower).

Dinner Cruise - Evening on the Seine

These go every day (except 14 February, 14 July, 31 December). Basically a more intimate style of evening than the bigger boats. As mentioned above, the boats don't offer so many places, and you get to sit alongside panoramic windows.
