A boat ride on the lake
Getting to see Geneva from a motorboat is a unique experience. You'll have a chance to take fascinating pictures during the ride.
The typical "mouettes".
One of the best ways to see Geneva, weather permitting, is from a mouette (motorboat), on the lake Leman. They operate regularly from Place du Molard to Quai du Mont-Blanc and Quai Gustave-Ador. Sailing these famous waters, getting so close to the Jet d'Eau that your face gets sprinkled and the pictures you will have the chance to take are good reasons to discover the magic and beauty of this most typical, local watercraft. There are four shuttle lines belonging to the company Mouettes Genevoises Navigation (www.mouettesgenevoises.ch) which, every ten minutes, will take both tourists and locals trying to avoid the traffic, from one end of the lake to the other. Another option for a boat ride is on the Swissboat watercraft (www.swissboat.com), which also does cruises around the area.
