Private car transfers: You can arrange a private transfer from the Nice airport to Cannes. Alternatively, you can rent a luxury car to arrive at the show in style.

Helicopter transfers: To avoid hold-ups and traffic, many yacht show visitors opt for helicopter transfers. We suggest to use Heli Securite, which operates daily helicopter transfers between Cannes port and Nice Côte d’Azur airport. The flight duration is around 7 minutes.
