Vedettes de Paris

This ISO 4001-certified company uses smaller vessels than most of its competitors do, and its traditionally-styled boats have special appeal for boat-lovers and romantics.

One-hour sightseeing cruises depart one to three times per hour, depending on the season. Vedettes de Paris also has dinner cruises, Champagne-tasting cruises, and other cruises that feature snacks or light meals.

Location:

Vedettes de Paris has a ticket office at Port de Suffren, just to the west of the Pont de l'Alma on the Eiffel Tower side of the river. (You can see a map on the company's Web site.)
