With your own captain and guide on a small privatized boat with 2-6 passengers, book the best reviewed boat cruise in Paris. Instant booking available!

Far from huge crowded boats, this private boat tour is unique! After boarding at the small Suresnes marina, you will enjoy the thrills of the high speed nautic area just before discovering the Ile Saint Germain chenal and its bucolic environment full of house boats just at the gates of Paris. Next will be the Ile aux Cygnes and the Statue of Liberty facing us, before reaching the Eiffel Tower for a unique point of view from the Seine. Grand Palais, Pont Alexandre III, Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre will be the next highlights rich in history. You will stroll next to Notre Dame to enjoy a one of a kind experience then we will turn to go back and relish the Seine, its bridges and monuments from the other side of the river.

You will have your private pilot and guide to answer all the questions you may have about Paris and France.

Paris by dawn, Paris by day, Paris by night – the choice is yours. We are flexible with departure time or for custom requests (proposal…), do not hesitate to discuss any special need or schedule that you may have.

Please note that the boats can accommodate 10 people but we limit it to 6 passengers when people know each other (families…) or 4 otherwise.

Who are we?


Boat in Paris’s proud background starts in 2016 when Axel bought his first boat. Realizing that there was not a single place to rent boats in Paris, he decided to invest in one and to make it available for locals to rent. Demand grew quickly, but many locals and tourists didn’t have the specific licence to operate boats on French Inland Waters, so the boat had to be certified as a passenger boat to make a commercial use of it with a captain (note: this proved to be an administrative headache!).
Now with the correct certifications, he was able to have guests on the boat and quickly gained a reputation as being the only small boat cruising Paris, delivering an amazing travel experience for tourists and locals. The first boat was replaced by a brand new one in 2019, and two more were bought to rent and make tours with very small groups. Alexis and Stéphanie joined the team in 2020, handpicked due to their enthusiasm for Paris. We always want to keep things small and simple, away from the huge crowed boats and closer to our passengers, sharing stories and laughs with everyone while bringing the most personalized experience there is on the river.
