Spending a day out, or even an evening, with family or friends in Paris is a real treat, and cruises on the Seine are a terrific way to see even more of the city. The River Seine is at the very heart of Parisian life and its historic bridges will inspire you while the banks are a UNESCO world heritage site. A lunch cruise, dinner on the Seine, a quick trip from one location to another or a themed cruise, the possibilities are endless and most companies can privatise boats for your special events.

Depart from Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower with Bateaux Parisiens to be among the most iconic sights of Paris from the start. Perhaps your kids are learning French in school, why not try the Les Incollables® cruise for sightseeing, fun and French in a fully glassed over boat for ages 5 to 11?

Those who want to see the city in style will adore the dinner cruises on the Seine that Paris en Scène do so well. Nothing compares to dining beneath the stars on a warm summer evening as the Seine and the floodlit landmarks of the city drift slowly by. Those who prefer an early start might enjoy fabulous champagne brunch cruises.

Fresh produce and great service are just part of the package when you go on a lunch or dinner cruise with Bateaux-Mouches®. The company has been regaling passengers with romantic tales of historic Paris on cruises on the Seine for over 60 years, and excel in unforgettable and highly enjoyable outings.

Vedettes du Pont Neuf was founded in 1959 and their historical and themed cruises on the Seine take in some of the most beautiful sights and attractions, including the city's oldest bridge. Those who are short of time will enjoy one hour trips, while lunch and dinner cruises are the perfect choice for families and larger groups of friends.
