Strictly speaking,isn't a sightseeing-boat company. It's more like a bus line, with glass-enclosed trimaran boats that offer "hop on, hop off" service at eight stops along the Seine. From these locations, you can easily reach many of the city's sights.
Batobus boats run year-round, with frequencies of 20 minutes (summer) to 30 or 45 minutes (winter).
Instead of point-to-point tickets, Batobus sells one- and two-day passes, plus an annual pass for Parisians and long-term visitors. You can ride as often as you like during the validity period.
Discounts are available to holders of student cards and certain public-transportation cards (including Nagivo). Batobus also sells a two-day "Paris a la Carte" pass that is valid on both the boats and L'Opentour "hop on, hop off" sightseeing buses. Children under 3 ride free.
Tour Eiffel, Musée d'Orsay, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Nôtre-Dame, and Jardin des Plantes on the Left Bank; Hôtel de Ville, Louvre, and Champs-Elysées on the Right Bank. (The route is circular, with all boats going in the same direction.)
