There is apparently one ferry company "Trans Côte d'Azur" going to the Île Sainte-Marguerite, the island closest to Cannes and the other "Planaria" is only going to the Île Saint-Honorat.

Crossing the bay of Cannes to Sainte-Marguerite takes only 15 min but it offers very nice views from the upper deck so that one does not regret paying a rather high price for the ticket:
Return ticket: adult 12 €; reduced at 10 € for youngsters 11 - 14 yr, students 18 - 25, seniors 65 yr.
6,50 € children 5 - 10 yr; Free <5 yr.

Tickets desk and departure at the Quai Laubeuf (west of the Vieux Port). There is a large parking area.
The arrival quay Débarcadère on the island is about 400 m west of the fortress. There are two snacks and 2 restaurants in that area as well as a toilet.
