What you'll do

Venetian sefood cicchetti with at sunset in the salt marshes near the island of Burano, unique sunsets, different every day with shades and colors postcard. In the quiet of the lagoon can admire the flora and fauna of this still unspoiled and fascinating habitat.We will spend 3 hours on my boat around the Venetian lagoon. You will learn the basics of sailing and we will have a typical venetian seafood "cicchetti" appetizer accompanied by soft drinks, prosecco and beer.
In particular, we will sail around the uninhabited islands of the lagoon (far from the mass tourist routes) towards Burano Island.
During the first half an hour, I will instruct you on the basics of sailing and give you the necessary notions for safety on board. During the navigation you will live the experience of a crew, alternating during the sail, and you will learn how to exploit the wind with brief practical and theoretical explanations.
Once in Burano we will anchor in front of it in the channel. You could have a swimming time before the appetizer and enjoy the unique sunset of the lagoon.
Other things to note
You can get easily marina lio grando from Venice with vaporetto from San Marco square.

It was an amazing unforgettable experience, we saw the most unforgettable sunset for a long time and had unique experience cruising on a sailboat with delicious apitizers and lots of Procsecco! Ernesto adjusted starting time 1 day before which was perfect for the sunset and he sent very clear instructions before meeting up. We started on time and everything was beyond expectations. The boat was beautiful and comfortable and we were lucky to had an exclusive experience. It was such a good value for money considering the special experience and food & drink provided. Can't recommend more!

What a great experience in Venice! I would totally recommend it. So the really awesome: Ernesto knows what he is doing and makes you feel welcome and takes care of you with nice wine and delicious seafood. The boat is beautiful and well equipped for you to have a great time. The views are amazing and the sunset in front of Murano unbeatable. We were the only guests who booked on that day so it felt as if it were private but I am sure it is also worth it if other people come along. As a side note, the pick up point is outside Venezia so make sure you take a look at the vaporetto schedules to get there on time. Ernesto replies very fast so you can try on him for info. Thank you, Ernesto. We wish you the very best!!!

Our evening on the boat was really relaxing and beautiful! Altogether, we were enjoying the view from the boat, going for a swim, drinking Prosecco, having dinner (snacks, shrimps, and mussels, all very delicious!!!) and seeing the sunset around the colored houses of Burano island. On top, we were the only guests that night. Ernesto was really kind and caring while leaving us our space to enjoy the experience. He also described us how to get to the meeting point (it’s a 30 minutes boat ride from the center of Venice) and he was very helpful. So, if you’d like to enjoy the magic of a sailing boat, you shouldn’t miss Ernesto’s experience!

This is simply the best experience you could have in Venice🥰 Ernesto is a fantastic host, great cooker and really interesting character. We loved this unique cruise and the attention of details from Ernesto: very good cuisine, rescheduling the time 30min earlier to ensure we have the best sunset experience, additional pillows and duvets for comfort. Just go for it!! In addition je even provide his own recommendations for restaurants and visits of Venice - which we tried and it was fantastic! Thanks for everything Ernesto ❤️
