Bachelorette party on the French Riviera

SeaZen had the pleasure to welcome 7 young Belgian girls, who chose to celebrate their Bachelorette party (in French EVJF for Burial of a Young Girl's Life), on board a boat on the French Riviera. A little earlier, 5 girls from the north of France, came for the same reasons. Here are some of the highlights of these two great days organised by Bénédicte and Anaïs between Nice and Monaco.

How to choose a Bachelorette Party by boat near Nice?

You have the choice between the simplicity of a tour accompanied whith a private guide or the freedom or a self drive rental with a first practice necessary at the start.

Choice 1: Anaïs is looking for a guide for maximum simplicity

By organising the weekend in Nice, Anaïs and her 4 friends wanted to spend a convivial moment on a boat, but without necessarily trying to become a skipper right away. That will certainly come later, when they come back the next time. In addition, they have planned to make their excursion out of season. In April, even coming from the north, you don't necessarily sail to Beaulieu-sur-Mer for swimming. So they preferred to organize the sea tour with a private guide.

Choice 2: Bénédicte is looking for a licence free boat for beeing alone with her friends.

As for Anaïs Bénédicte and her friends wanted to offer the bride-to-be a boat trip. Problem: how to easily rent a boat suitable for a Bachelorette and without having a motor licence while wanting to stay with friends?

Bénédicte found seaZen and she immediately understood the interest of renting a large license free boat because it is as elegant as it is comfortable. She also discovered that she and a few of her friends only need to practice for an hour to drive. Back to the port after this practice, everything is ready for the surprise. At the same time, the bride-to-be arrives with 2 other accomplices and discovers what awaits her. Everything's ready for the entire crew to leave..

Here we go. Set course for anchorage David Niven! This very close anchorage is located in front of the Villa Rose of La Fleur du Cap, on the Maurice Rouvier promenade.

While the solar boat glides silently and odourlessly over the water, Bénédicte uncorks a bottle of Champagne. She realizes that only a solar-powered boat allows her to enjoy it while sailing. Indeed, the taste of champagne is not "polluted" by the exhaust fumes of an engine, it almost hears the bubbles sparkling. Moreover, the catamaran is very stable and does not heel like a sailboat.

After just a few minutes, our friends drop anchor at a depth of 2 metres near posidonia meadows bathed in translucent water. The champagne glasses aren't empty yet. Above all, you should savour and admire the sumptuous setting in a Zen and elegant spirit. The change of scenery is total, and the boat is the ideal showcase for magnificent "instagrammable" photos.

At anchor, the afternoon passes very quickly, swimming, sunbathing, and picnic on board or simply contemplating the French Riviera. There's really something for everyone. The boat is a real floating lounge. Moreover, at any time it offers direct access for sea bathing.

Return to port

Returning to port a few hours later, Bénédicte's crew has become a pro at solar yachting. Each one can help Bénédicte, the skipper, to manoeuvre in the harbour. It is very simple to avoid any shock by pushing the boat back with your hands if it appears necessary. As the crew trained for 1 hour in the early afternoon, the gestures are natural and everything is done smoothly.

Anaïs' crew chose the accompanied walk. Captivated by the simplicity of navigation, they all tried to drive the boat. They are convinced that they will come back next time to train thoroughly in solar navigation.
