What you'll do
Visiting Venice on a kayak is such an amazing experience that you'll remember it for the rest of your life. You will paddle among canals with one expert and experienced local tour guide who was born and raised in Venice and know it like the back of his hand. Our tour takes slightly less than two hours total and it will give you the opportunity to enjoy all the architectural details of the city that you cannot notice from the ground. During the kayak tour, we will stop several times to admire some of the most famous and beautiful palaces, canals and churches of the city, with some historical explanation about each place. The main attractions that we will visit together are located in Sestiere Cannaregio e Castello. However, the itinerary of the tour can be slightly changed according to weather and tide conditions. Don't worry, our tours are easy to handle and not too tiring. Anyone of any age can join. Before starting the guided kayak excursion, you will be informed about: kayak paddling techniques, security measures and how to go on a kayak in Venice (rules, right of way, etc).

I have been kayaking and rowing since 2003. I decided to start organizing Guided Kayak Tours in Venice with other local experienced kayak guides (Federico, Giovanni, Francesco, Mirto, Ben) to share with locals and tourists our love for Kayak, an outdoor activity that gets you to discover the hidden gems of nature and of an incredible city like Venice. I've been part of two ICF World Cups, the first one in Hungary and the second one in Milan. The ICF (International Canoe Federation) is the FIFA of Kayak. I am a certified FICK trainer (Italian federation of Canoe and Kayak).
