In the morning, several options are available to you: A long hike (3h) to the calanque d'En Vau, a short hike (1h30) to Port Pin, a boat trip of 45 to 110 min to discover the different creeks of the National Park (ticket not included - 16 to 28 €), or a visit of the city, its alleys, its typical market and the possibility of swimming at the beach in the center. After a meal break (at your expense), we will visit one of the 12 organic Cassis wine estates (entry not included - between € 10 and € 12 with tasting) or simply taste some good local wines. You also have the possibility of doing a snorkeling session (included in the tour), Kayak / Paddle (not included) or visit the nearby town of La Ciotat. We will then pass by Cap Canaille, the highest sea cliff in Europe for a last most impressive photo session!
