Nighttime boat ride along the Seine

My daughter and I will be in Paris April 17-21. Does the Batobus run at night and is that a good option for an evening boat ride on the Seine or should we stick with the Bateaux? Thanks.

I actually would recommend Vedetted du Pont Neuf. The below link is a question about the river cruises from a week or so ago:


It should be helpful.

Actually, Batobus is kind of river bus - it stops at certain places to unload passangers and take a new once. Of course, you could use it as a cruise boat, but it costs more and it takes a lot of time at docks at each stop.

Either Bateaux or Vedettes PN is fine.

Batobus is essentially a river taxi. You don't ever want to use it for a river cruise. Buy tickets online with a discount for Vedettes de Pont Neuf or wait until you get there and book with Vedettes of Bâteaux Mouches or Bâteaux Parisiens.
