Ports

  • Nice
    Nice

    Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. The city's famous seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ('the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest settlers to this seaside resort. For over a quarter century, the picturesque Nicean surroundings have attracted not only those in search of relaxation but also those seeking inspiration. SeaDream docks in the small port and offers several land adventure options as well as private arrangements and transfers.

  • St. Tropez
    St. Tropez

    St. Tropez located on the French Riviera quite simply may be the most famous resort town in Europe. It is a playground for the fashion models, athletes, movie stars, entertainers and other extremely wealthy summertime guests. There’s much to offer in this resort town, shopping, nightlife (Byblos hotel’s Les Caves du Roy nightclub) exceptional beach clubs such as Le Club 55 and Nikki Beach at Pampelonne. Nearby you can explore some of the hill towns and visit the award winning rose wineries. You can also visit neighboring Grimaud and Port Grimaud or just a little further out golf at a few highly rated courses. SeaDream anchors just off the break wall and tenders directly to the pier downtown.

  • Cannes
    Cannes

    Cannes is a well-known destination in the French Riviera that is home to many international festivals celebrating the arts, including Midem, Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and the global film festival founded in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival. It’s the first European satellite manufacturer, home to the Cannes Mandelieu Space Center, as well as the headquarters for Thales Alenia Space. Originally a small fishing port heavily tied to the Lerins Islands, Cannes is most characterized by luxury, fame, and hosting conferences. Despite becoming a glamorous destination in the Côte d'Azur, the history of Cannes and the Lerins Islands was quite rocky. Cannes was initially named Aegitna, and established by the Ligurian tribe of Oxybii in the 2nd Century B.C. In 410 A.D. two monks settled on Lerina and established a monastery, housing several hundred monks by the 6th century. Out of fear of a Saracen invasion, Le Suquet was procured by the monks in the 11th century, which led to the birth and expansion on what became known as Cannes. Piracy remained a general problem and by the 12th century, the monastery was finally attacked by Saracen pirates, which further fueled insecurity. In 1520, when French King Francis I and Holy Roman Emperor Charles V declared war, Cannes became a passageway for their armies. The situation in Cannes would worsen when the great plague of 1579 annihilated much of the population. In 1635, the Spanish occupied the town for a couple of years before returning to Spain in 1707 for the War of Spanish Succession. It wasn’t until the 18th century where Cannes finally became tranquil and began flourishing in the 19th century. The economy for Cannes is sustained by business fairs, trade, tourism, and aviation. Points of interest include the Iles de Lerins, Marches Forville, Casino Croisette and Rue Meynadier. During the summer, from May to September, Cannes remains sunny for 12 hours a day. Its warm climate allows lemon, orange and olive trees to thrive, as well as fig, almond, oak, lotus and cypress trees. When sailing to Cannes, be sure to visit La Croisette and stroll along the white sandy beaches on this mile-long promenade where the very essence of this town thrives. SeaDream typically anchors so we can offer water sports to our valued guests. You may occasionally see the yacht docked alongside when we are chartered from the festival.

  • Menton
    Menton

    Nestled along France’s Côte d’Azur, sitting at the Franco-Italian border, is the picturesque town of Menton. Often described as “the Pearl of France,” its sun-kissed terrain and pastel-colored homes constitute photo-worthy moments and a landscape you can admire for days. Interestingly, due to its unique location between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Mention enjoys the longest hours of sunshine in France, which also bears fruit in its signature lemon. Beyond its palm-lined seaside promenade offering sweeping coastal views, Menton boasts bastions, basilicas, museums, designer boutiques, tony cafés, and beautiful botanical gardens and beaches. Discover the touches of twentieth-century artist Jean Cocteau, who in the 1950s adorned the town’s Wedding Hall with Surrealist-inspired frescoes, depicting romance in the mythological figures of Orpheus and Eurydice. While known to few travelers, Menton remains an intriguing bucket-list destination for those who have explored the iconic French Riviera and are seeking a fresh perspective of the coveted coastline.

  • Portofino
    Portofino

    The picturesque fishing village of Portofino can be found along the Italian Riviera, and is one of the most popular resort getaways in all of Italy. Portofino has been a staple of tourism in Italy since the 19th century, officially replacing fishing as its chief industry in 1950. Portofino is twinned with Kinsale, Ireland, and Palma (de Mallorca), Spain. Roman philosopher and military commander Pliny the Elder declared that Portofino was founded by the Romans, and with the high concentration of dolphins found in the Tigullian Gulf, it was named the “Port of the Dolphin” - Portus Delphini. Portofino was primarily a member of the Republic of Genoa in early days, and never provided more than a resting area for the merchant navy due to its naturally cramped harbor. The Republic of Florence purchased Portofino in 1409 from French King Charles VI, yet returned when the Florentines were ousted. Portofino became a part of the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1815, and during Risorgimento, it became a member of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Aristocratic visitors from Northern Europe began visiting the town in the 19th century, leading to eventual vacation homes and celebrities appearing in Portofino. Portofino is naturally beautiful port with colorful, iconic architecture that was even replicated as a hotel resort at the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando. The Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan also created a seaside town based on Portofino. Tourists like to visit the museum Castello Brown, which provides a great view of the town, as well as the churches of St. Martin, Oratorio di Nostra Signora Assunta, and St. George - the latter containing some relics of saints. When visiting Portofino, be sure to take a guided dive to the Portofino Marine Park, as well as take a glimpse at the recently restored famous underwater statue, the Christ of the Abyss.

  • Cannes - Chateau, Vineyard and Wines of Provence

    Description

    Provence, renowned as the world's largest wine region, specializes in dry rosé and has become a favorite among American wine enthusiasts. On this exclusive Wine Yachting Land Adventure, visit Chateau d’Esclans, the home of the acclaimed "Whispering Angel" rosé. Explore the chateau, its picturesque vineyards, and taste wines from this world's leading rosé producer.

    Embark on a journey from Cannes to the picturesque hills of Provence, where nestled among the serene landscape lies Chateau d'Esclans, a storied estate with roots tracing back to the 12th century. Once a grand castle, today only its ancient cellars remain, steeped in centuries of history and intrigue.

    In 1201, the castle and vast lands of the Esclans Valley fell into the hands of Gérard de Villeneuve, scion of a prominent Marseille family. Over time, the estate was divided and sold in parcels, until its rebirth in 2006 under the ownership of Sacha Lichine. Together with Patrick Leon, the visionary former Managing Director of Mouton Rothschild, Lichine embarked on a mission to redefine the art of winemaking and craft the epitome of rosé excellence.

    At the heart of Chateau d'Esclans' acclaim lies its prized old-vine Grenache, some dating back to the early 20th century. These grapes, meticulously hand-picked at dawn, intertwine with carefully tended Vermentino to create wines of unparalleled complexity and finesse. The estate's top cuvées, aged in oak, possess an extraordinary ability to evolve and improve with time, offering a sensory journey through the terroir of Provence.

    With an annual production of 7 million bottles, a staggering 95% of which are exported, Chateau d'Esclans has carved its place on the global stage. Leading the charge is the iconic Whispering Angel, beloved for its dry palate, aromatic intensity, and versatility with a wide array of dishes. Sacha Lichine's ambition to elevate rosé to new heights has sparked a "renaissance of rosé," revolutionizing winemaking in the region with innovative techniques and uncompromising quality.

    Discover the allure of Chateau d'Esclans, where tradition meets innovation, and every sip tells a tale of passion, craftsmanship, and the timeless beauty of Provence.

Testimonials

The chef is outstanding. Every dish was excellent – loved the Indian menu. Mr. & Mrs. HardyTennessee
I hate Commercial Cruises. So I reluctantly signed up for a SeaDream, and after a week on the boat, I could not think of one thing that was not done to perfection. The food was great, the staff was spectacular, and having only 50 couples made this a private yacht cruise. I have signed up for my second cruise, and probably will only Yacht with SeaDream in my future. Pat M.Florida
