Marseille Port Pilot - Onboard a Pilot Boat transiting from the Marseille Old Port to the Frioul Islands, Marseille, France.
A pilot boat is a type of boat used to transport pilots between land and the inbound or outbound ships that they are piloting.
Nestled in the rocks of Friuli, the pilot house, built in 1950, to the sea looks like a ship ready to emerge. The Pilot Port of Marseilles have always camped on the island of Ratonneau, waiting for the vessels bound for the southern entrance of the port of Marseille, before control passes to the city of Marseille
