Are you tempted by the idea of an aperitif on the Seine?

Vedettes de Paris offers an ideal venue for your after work gatherings! With colleagues, friends or partners, come and relax aboard our boats with a drink in an atmosphere reminiscent of traditional riverside cafés. And don’t miss our quayside terrace and activities, as well as our new restaurant which is going to be a hit with Parisians! Embark at the foot of the Eiffel Tower for an aperitif cruise on the Seine and share a very Parisian moment of conviviality over a glass of Champagne, a cold beer, or a glass of wine* (included in the cruise price) on board our boats. Enjoy an unforgettable view from the river over the bridges and monuments of Paris as they are gradually lit up.

Commentary is set aside on this cruise in favour of a festive atmosphere with background music that will give you an entirely different vision of Paris. Our onboard bars remain open during the excursion to offer you a selection of aperitifs and delicacies to make this a special moment with colleagues or friends! Continue your evening in our other venues designed for your pleasure. Meet before or after your cruise on the Seine, with tapas and cocktails in our new floating restaurant with an open deck and enjoy a breathtaking view of the illuminated Eiffel Tower, or set off to discover the hustle and bustle of the Seine quays… you will be sure to find a traditional riverside atmosphere!

A great way to discover Paris in a different way. Smiling welcome, comfortable boat with the option of eating on board, seats on the roof offering great views of the capital's banks. A pleasant guided tour along the water.
