If your charter begins in Port Pierre Canto Cannes, meet the captain and crew at the Capitainerie - the main meeting point at this port. How to get there: Port Pierre Canto is situated to the far left of Cannes, if you are facing the sea. It is a two minute drive from the InterContinental Carlton Hotel (which is situated in the middle of the Croisette). Walking directions from there are as follows:
- Head southeast on Boulevard de la Croisette toward Rue du Canada for 550 meters
- Take the crosswalk for 60 meters
- Slight right onto Boulevard de la Croisette
The Old Port of Cannes is next to the conference centre (Palais des Festivals) If you are facing the sea from the Pantiero, it is on the left. The meeting point in this port is slightly further than the Capitainerie, on a quay, so you must walk to the very end - the meeting point is a floating dock found there called the Ponton D'Accueil.
The meeting point in Antibes is at the fuel station right next to the Capitainerie, which stands out as a circular glass building, located in one of the parking lots on the right of Avenue de Verdun on the side of the sea.
Port Hercule should not be confused with the Port of Fontvieille which is located on the other side of the Rocher (where the Palace is situated). Port Hercule is located in the heart of Monte Carlo, and the meeting point is situated on a quay on the right hand side of the port if you are standing on the Route de la Piscine facing towards the sea. Head towards the pinkish buildings on the right. The meeting point at this port is at 10 Quai Antoine 1er, right by one of the pink buildings.
Port Gallice is located just out of the town. If you are driving towards Cap D'Antibes, head past the Hotel Belles Rives Juan Les Pins and the port is the next turning on the right hand side. The meeting point at this port is by the gas station, near one of the floating quays to the right hand side as you enter the car park.
- Take the Promenade des Anglais/M6098 and Tunnel André Liautaud to Quai des Deux Emmanuels for (5.6 km)
- Continue on Quai des Deux Emmanuels to your destination 2 min (550 m)
- Arrive at Port Lympia, where the meeting point is at the Quai De La Douane (Customs Quay)
- Walk towards the fuel station
St Tropez : Port De St Tropez
The meeting point in the port de St tropez is at the Capitainerie. Fortunately, the Capitainerie in this port is distinguishable with its unique circular structure, made of old cobblestones. You cannot miss it! Please call your captain 20 minutes before you plan to be there so that he can gain authority from the port to enter and collect your guests.
In Golfe-Juan, the meeting point is the Capitainerie of Port Camille Rayon, the larger of the two porlts. You can park very close by and walk to the meeting point, which is next to the superyachts on the quay, not the outer wall of the marina.
