Vieux Port (Marina)


In the heart Marseille. A scenic, hundreds of pleasure boats arriving and leaving. Live fresh fish from fishing boats.
Stern or bows to floating pontoons with lazy lines.  Well protected in the port.

Restaurants on the street sell the famous Bouillabase seafood soup at €35-€45 a plate. 

Take all precautions against crime and lock everything up before leaving the boat. Some slips have lock gates, others  not.   

Dockage of about €37/night includes water and electricity and not much else.

Unlimited Wifi at Mc Donalds if the marina access is not working.
