Four glass-topped trimarans compete for the title of flagship in thefleet.
The boats--named Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani, Jeanne Moreau, and Pierre Bellon--hold up to 600 passengers each and offer recorded commentary in 13 languages through airline-style headphones.
The company also has nine smaller boats, some of which are used for dinner cruises and private events.
Cruise tours depart once or twice an hour year-round (typically every 30 minutes from April through September and every 60 minutes from October until the end of March).
High-priced lunch and dinner cruises are available on separate restaurant boats.
The main Bateaux-Parisiens pier is just to the right of the Eiffel Tower as you face the Seine.
A secondary loading point at the Quai de Montebello, on the Left Bank facing N˘tre-Dame Cathedral, offers a limited schedule of cruises on smaller vessels (with narration in four languages) from late March until the beginning of November.
