Cruise Under the Stars

Each one of Vedettes de Paris’ vessels is equipped to accommodate you on a night cruise of the Seine River. From panoramic terraces to VIP spaces, you and your significant other, friends, or work associates can enjoy the light-strewn sights, including monuments and breathtaking architecture in style and comfort.

Some of the notable landmarks you’ll pass by during your night cruise on the Seine are the Eiffel Tower—where you board the vessel—the Obelisque de la Concorde, the Musee d’Orsay, the Musee du Louvre, the Academie Francaise, and the Notre-Dame de Paris. As you pass by, go ahead and give a wave to Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Hugo’s Quasimodo. Left and right, on both sides of the Seine, you’ll be entranced by the sweeping structures and the history imbibed in them. Plus, a night cruise on the Seine is the perfect excuse to see monuments through different lenses too, because everything looks different at night! You may even notice something you’ve never seen before.

While traversing the history-laden Parisian waterway, you can also partake in a light supper of sandwiches and drinks, or perhaps dessert and coffee as a way to end your evening. Or, if it happens to be a special occasion, toast with flutes of champagne! The riverboat is your oyster, and we’re here to celebrate with you!

For each night cruise on the Seine, you can expect a trip lasting a couple of hours, so kick back and lounge on the main deck, terrace, or river-level deck, or grab a table and chairs to sit upright and attentively with a drink in hand as you observe the city sights drift by as the night whiles away. And don’t worry–Vedettes de Paris will get you back long before the strike of midnight. After all, it’s a night cruise of Paris, not an all-night cruise!

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.

Questions and answers about the Night Cruise on the Seine in Paris
Including the Eiffel Tower—where you and your vessel will make berth—you’ll view thirteen monumental landmarks of Paris, plus fantastic, lesser-known structures on your way up and down the Seine. There isn’t a dull visual moment on a Vedettes de Paris voyage!
Each of the vessels sets off from a mooring beneath the Eiffel Tower and turns around at the stopover point at Pont Marie (Bridge Marie) near the Notre-Dame de Paris. Some people may board at the Pont Marie, so the stopover will be longer than a few minutes.
Whether you book online, over the phone, or in-person, each ticket is valid for an entire year and includes a glass of wine, a beer, or a soft drink. Full-service bars and other refreshments are also available on board for additional fees that must be paid with a credit card. Visit our website for all accepted payment methods.
