My husband and I did a half day afternoon tour with three others making up our group of 5. None of us were experts but all had s reasonable ability. The whole trip was a challenge but also a joy (and a little nerve wracking in the very narrow canals, but In an exciting way!). Our guide, Loretta, was very... More

This was my first time in Venice and my first time kayaking. Through this tour I was able to experience Venice in a way that is not possible on foot. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. There is a lot of paddling and you will get a little wet. If this is your cup of tea you will love... More

My friend and I were planning to travel Italy for the month of April. When I met up with her in France she mentioned kayaking in Venice. We are two 50-something women who have kayaked British Columbia's coastline. Kayaking Venice was intriguing and out of the ordinary. We also did not make plans too far in advance since we both...

This is a great concept and a unique way to see Venice in all it's glory. There were parts of the trip that we thoroughly enjoyed. However, our tour guide (a local lady) really let the whole thing down. We were both beginners but had kayaked a little before. She had absolutely no words of encouragement for the duration and...

I contacted Renee to see if I could go on a 1/2 day trip. They typically don't run trips because there is no demand in winter time but he contacted a guide ,Loretta, who happened to be in Venice. I paddled a fiberglass sea kayak, perfect for a small paddler. They have a wide selection of paddles including Greenland paddles.... More

This was such a unique and original experience to see Venice from the water. Our guide, Lauretta, was fantastic. She was fun, took our safety seriously and took tonnes of pictures for us (no cameras allowed in case you drop them into the water). I bought this as a present for my boyfriends 30th birthday and he was the only... More

Seeing Venice from the water is amazing and even more so when you get to do the paddling yourself. This tour was an absolute treat and gave me a perspective of the city I would not have see otherwise. It was a bit stormy the day we went out so not everywhere was accessible but if I ever find myself... More

This was a fantastic trip. We were able to kayak through the canals of Venice and see sights you don't get to just walking around. Kayaking under the bridge of sighs was awsome and the best part was it was just my wife and I in the tour. We learned all kinds of history on the tour and were able... More
