La Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches is the oldest boat-tour operator in Paris, and its name is often used (or misused) as a generic term for Seine excursion boats.
The company operates a fleet of nine modern cruise boats and six restaurant boats that are popular with tour groups.
A multilingual recorded commentary describes sights along the bank, and passengers are given a route map with information in 25 languages.
Seventy-minute sightseeing cruises depart every 20 to 45 minutes in summer and less frequently during the winter months.
Restaurant boats offer leisurely, high-priced dinner cruises at night and lunch cruises on weekends and holidays.
The Bateaux-Mouches pier is along the water just east of the Pont de l'Alma, in front of the Trocadero and across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.
