Come aboard theO₂ ! The first hybrid boat in the Var to offer guided tours to the islands of Gold, Porquerolles & Port-Cros but also to the residence of the Presidents of the Republic, the Fort Brégançon in Bormes-les-Mimosas.
Who are we?
Passionate about the sea, we have always been keen to share the riches of our region in a different way...
Aware of the impact of tourism on the environment, it was in 2015 that we discovered hybrid propulsion boats.
It was then that we decided to embark on this wonderful adventure that is Latitude Verte around two essential points:
- Minor impact on the naturel environment.
- Coastline discovery in a more private way.
Since 2019, we are proud to present theO₂, the first hybrid boat in the Var. Of human size with a capacity of 50 passengers and adapted to people with reduced mobility, its electric autonomy allows us to offer rides while limiting C0₂ emissions and noise pollution within the National Park of Port-Cros and the Golden Islands.
The Hybrid Boat: O₂
Sail quickly to the places of stroll, then let yourself be lulled only by the noise of the sea, the cicadas and the comments of your captain...

Sharing an experience and the values of the territory:
A participation, as much for the visitor as for the beneficiary, to the local life in an active and solidary way.
An awareness of the natural and cultural heritage of the national parks of France by beneficiaries who transmit their know-how and their passion.
Respect for the environment:
A limitation of ecological impacts with beneficiaries who better manage their waste, do not use chemicals, manage water in a sustainable way and reduce travel and energy consumption.
Commitment to the preservation of the island of Porquerolles :
At Latitude Verte, we are deeply committed to the preservation of the environment. Since our creation in 2019, we have chosen a human size for our boat in order to limit our impact on the island of Porquerolles, in response to the problem of tourist overcrowding. In 2021, we have strengthened this commitment by joining the regulation of access to the island and limiting the number of passengers on board our boat on days of overcrowding. We are proud to contribute to the protection of this unique territory and we adhere to the measures for a sustainable and environmentally friendly tourism.
