No issue with the boat trip itself and there are regular crossings, which is helpful since it is the only way to get to Frioul and Chateau If, but the queues for the ticket office can be long, and there’s very little shade. You can...More

The island and castle of If are worth a visit, really beautiful and well maintained castle with a souvenir shop and cafe. However, this ferry operator offers a very poor service, they do not respect their own time table at all (with perfect weather), they...More

Buy tickets in the kiosk and queue for 20 mins before departure time. The boat then takes you through the old port and out to sea. If the chateau d’if is open it stops there and then Frioul. The day we went the return ferry...More

The ferry is very popular as it takes sight-seers to Chateau D'If and Frioul. There is often a queue to buy your ticket so allow plenty of time. The service is quick and efficient, and provides a great day out.
