What you'll do

Discover Paris from it's most beautiful avenue

After boarding at the small Suresnes marina, you will enjoy the thrills of the high speed nautic area just before discovering the Ile Saint Germain chenal full of house boats just at the gates of Paris. Next will be the Ile aux Cygnes and the Statue of Liberty facing us, before reaching the Eiffel Tower for a unique point of view from the Seine. Grand Palais, Pont Alexandre III, Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre will be the next highlights rich in history. You will stroll next to Notre Dame to enjoy a one of a kind experience then we will turn to go back and relish the Seine, its bridges and monuments from the other side of the river.

Either Axel or Alexis will be your private guide and answer all the questions you may have about Paris and France.

Paris by dawn, Paris by day, Paris by night – the choice is yours. I'm flexible with departure time or for custom requests (proposal...), do not hesitate to discuss any special need or schedule that you may have.
Please note that the boat can accommodate 10 people but I limit it to 6 passengers when people know each other (families...) or 4 otherwise. Once a booking occurs I adjust the availability directly so you'll be with maximum 1 other couple . If you want to make sure to have the boat for yourself and make it fully private, please use the "Book for a private group" option available when selecting your slot.

Parisian since birth, we are fond of cruising on the Seine with friends, enjoying the unique and exclusive vantage point that you have from the river. We're truly passionate about Paris and will make sure you have an exceptional time on this tour.

Axel: My background is originally in the high tech/video game industry, working in marketing and as a producer for many years until I turned my life around by starting a boat rental company boatinparis.fr and hosting guests on this unique experience. This is now a (nearly!) full time job that I love, sharing with guests being the most enjoyable thing I've ever done, there is simply no bad day!

Alexis : During the summer I'm also hosting a stand up paddle experience on the river, I'm passionate by sailboat and watersports in general, always making sure guests have the best experience possible.

This was an incredible experience! We booked this for our honeymoon/birthday celebration, and it was such a unique way to see Paris! Axel was so thoughtful, friendly, and knowledgeable! He answered every question I had about what we were seeing! It was so nice to get a private experience on a boat rather than a giant tourist boat. We loved it so much, thank you Axel!! This was definitely one of our favorite parts of our trip :)

If you want to avoid the large, crowded tour boats in Paris, we highly recommend booking a trip with Axel! He was very knowledgeable of Parisian history and it made the tour super interesting. He even took photos of us in front of the Eiffel Tour, which turned out beautiful! Book when you can!

This was an exceptional experience...why get on a big river boat with hundreds of tourists when you can have a personalized experience...Axel is friendly and knowledgeable and the boat was perfect!

A one of a kind experience, very unique and amazing. Axel really took care of us, and made it an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed the sunset on the Seine, and then got to watch the Eiffel Tower light up. Highlight of our trip!

This is the way to go if you want to tour Paris by water! Axel and his beautiful boat offer an intimate and upscale way to see all of Paris’s landmarks via a picturesque cruise up the Seine. Skip the mass tourist barges with hundreds of people and opt for this tour where Axel provides info on the attractions as you pass, takes photos for you during the trip, and even provides you with Parisian snacks and beverages to enjoy.

The best experience we had in Paris! Axel was amazing and the tour was a once in a lifetime experience. This beautiful setting made for the most magical engagement we could have had! Axel helped with every aspect, including music and champagne. If you’re looking for a way to experience Paris from a completely different perspective with an expert on the city and culture, look no further!
