The idea is to give everyone the chance to appreciate the beauty of Portofino Marine Park in the best possible way: paddling, rowing and sailing!AIM:Our goal is to give everyone the chance to discover the secrets of this preserved area. On board of kayaks or small sailing and rowing boats we give the opportunity to reach and see hidden and otherwise inaccessible natural paradises that behold the most colorful and genuine secrets of the ligurian coast sea vegetation. Guided by marine biologists and local experts in off-track excursion, all of our staff assures not only the best company and highest quality of sea sports instruction and guiding, but the chance to come in contact with the most peculiar and traditional aspects of this small and rich natural sanctuary and its costumes.With a bit of ambition and firmly believing in eco-tourism’s power, we want to provide the opportunity for those who visit these beautiful places to do it in the best way possible!We are also involved in carrying on a scientific environmental project. « less

We visited Outdoor Portifino July 4. Alessandra was very helpful in setting up a great kayaking and snorkeling trip for us. Our guide, Walter, was great during the trip. Getting the chance to kayak the Mediterranean Sea was cool. You get a different perspective of Portofino and the sights from the water. We will definitely do it again.

This one of the most unique experiences I have ever had. Kayaking and snorkeling through a protected wildlife area where none of the animals are afraid of humans is truly a remarkable thing. Luca was an awesome guide that let us be as adventurous as we wanted to be. Whether it was diving through caves or climbing up the rocks... More

I'm not sure if I have this under the right category. We're now in Tuscany, and had a bad experience in Portofino. It probably applies to a lot of places in Italy. We ate at a restaurant directly on the water in Portofino. It was late y esterday, Sunday, we had driven all day, and were still far from our... More

Loved the views and wanted to show our teenage children how wonderfull Portofino is unfortunately they said we were teasing them because they could imagine how great it would be in the summer. I would recommend staying in Santa Margherita as it is where all the locals live and it is gorgeous too.

From our hotel in Santa Margherita, we caught the local bus to Portofino; about a half hour away. We walked through the village and around the harbour. It was over run with tourists and crowded; even in Oct. We stopped for a cup of coffee at a fun little cafe; and the staff broke out in songs from the old... More

The public bathroom was lovely and kept very clean. Basically the only public bathroom in the entire cinque terre area that was usable. No litter anywhere. Beautiful walking area, lovely winding paths by the sea.

Portofino & Santa Margherita the most beautiful nature and water! No beach, only rocks, wasn't a problem for us but some might not like it. The towns are cute and u can walk from one to another easily. Portofino is expensive, the other more affordable! Totally recommend! We are still under the spell of its beauty!
