This is the second time I was able to visit Positano and do a tour with Mariella. Both times have been amazing!! Mariella gives great instructions about paddling and talks about things that you see along the way. It is so lovely to be on the water!! We took the tour from Positano towards Priano. We got to check out... More

A beautiful place, with a super guide (Mariella). Our family enjoyed every bit of our half day trip. All equipment was supplied by Mariella along with her informative and interesting legends and facts. Our eleven and fifteen year old boys thought the snorkelling and caves were great fun and that the kayaks were faster than they expected. A super experience... More

What a great to explore Positano from a different point of view. After walking around for a couple of weeks while beigna tourist it was nice to settle myself into a kayak, give my legs a rest, and explore using upper body strength. From the start, Mariella was extremely friendly and informative - from the initial email exchange, the greeting... More

Our family of four had a fantastic time kayaking with Mariella. She's very professional, yet fun and passionate about the area. We took the 1/2 day tour in the direction of Amalfi. She provided masks/snorkels for a stop along the beach, and took many photos which she sent to us the next day. Our 14 year old boy had a... More

A great way to get away from the crowds and noises of Positano for a few hours. The staff was great and highly knowledgeable on the area.

I recommend doing this to anyone wanting to take a break from the tourist congestion in Positano. Lovely way to view the coast line, Mariella is a very good guide. The kayaks are fool proof -- if you have any worries about "getting stuck" if the kayak flips, do not let that be a deterrent, the kayaks are simple to... More

Kayaking along the Amalfi coast was just beautiful and Mariella did a great job in describing the area and some of the sites along the way. She is extremely patient and great fun! I would highly recommend this outing to get away from the crowds and frantic pace of the area. We would definitely do this again!

This was definitely a highlight of our stay. Mariella is a fantastic guide and is all sorts of fun. She lead us on a lovely kayak tour around Positano complete with interesting tidbits about the area as well as time for snorkeling. I highly recommend to anyone (who doesn't get seasick)!!

This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy. What a great break from the busy cities. Mariella was a great guide and teacher. Since none of us had sea kayaked she gave us each a quick and easy lesson and off we went. She was a pleasure to be with and get to know. I highly recommend her... More

The kayak tour arranged with Positano Kayak run by Mariella was one of the best parts of my 17 day trip to Italy. Mariella was very knowledgeable about Kayaking and the sea. I felt very safe in her hands. During our break at a deserted beach, we snorkeled, ate our packed lunch, and enjoyed time chatting with Mariella. She was... More
