Arranged a 3-hour kayak tour with Mariella for beginners. She gave a good lesson for beginner-level kayakers and was very patient and encouraging. Mariella is a blast to talk to and she obviously loves what she does. Included a stop at a quiet secluded beach for snacks, resting, swimming, and sunbathing. Take a waterproof camera if you would like to... More

Mariella was the perfect guide. Starting with safety instructions, to patients with getting going on the kayak to the history and sights of the area. We hung out and had a good time. She also showed us her skillful cliff jump. Cheers Ankur

We had the best time! Mariella made us beginners feel comfortable and confident in the kayaks - it was so easy! We went along the coast and she gave us such great information about the area that just made it all the more special. For the price and the experience - she can't be beat! Highly, highly recommend!!!

We spent a fun morning with Mariella kayaking around the Amalfi Coast. We were impressed by her professionalism and won over by her engaging personality. She gives very clear instructions regarding kayaking and also tells a lot of history about the area. Mariella clearly loves what she does and wants to make sure that you love it too. We highly...

We hired the kayak and paddled out to explore some rocks and small caves, this brought us a chance to approach secluded beaches where there are only 4 others.

This expedition also provides the added benefit of snorkeling. Overall we had... More

Brilliant fun and definitely worth doing. Mariella was fantastic! We had plenty of time, weren't rushed and had the history of the area explained to us. We had a choice of were we wanted to go and stopped off for breaks and snorkelling. Id definitely do the full day next time.

This was a highlight of our week in Positano. Mariella's knowledge of the area, professionalism as a guide, and warm personality added to the already stunning scenery. We started with a quick lesson on how to use sea kayaks, which is different from the river kayaks we are used to. Then once in the water we made our way down... More

We rented kayaks and floated to the right of town. We entered a small cave and found our own Blue Grotto! Got out of boat and was able to dive through another opening to another cave under the cliffs. What a great adventure!!!

We HIGHLY Recommend you take this opportunity. This review is long overdue considering what a fantastic trip we experienced. At the end of May 2014 Mariella took us on a journey of a lifetime. The Amalifi coastline is stunning. Mariella was fun, professional and a very experienced instructor that had two very focused objectives ....... safety and the enjoyment of... More
