Just listened to both.

Pierre Monteux conducting the Boston Symphony (RCA Musique):

1. De l’aube a midi sur la mer: 8’35

2. Jeux de vagues: 5’55

3. Dialogue du vent et de la mer: 7’50

Carlo Maria Giulini conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic (DG):

1. De l’aube a midi sur la mer: 9’22

2. Jeux de vagues: 7’13

3. Dialogue du vent et de la mer: 8’35

As fine as the Giulini is, I have to give the edge to Monteux, and I think at least part of the secret here is his exceedingly brisk tempi.
