If you want a really unique way to see Venice, check out Venice Kayak. There's no reason to pay for a short Gondola ride when you can spend half a day in a Kayak taking a tour of the city. Our guide was local, and extremely knowledgeable about the city and kayaking. She also did an amazing job taking photos... More

We were initially hesitant about the high cost of a day tour of Venice, kayaking through its canals and rios, but the experience was well worth it! Our guide, Selina, and her apprentice, were highly professional and passionate about what they do, and were excellent at leading us through the maze of waterways - wide and at times extremely narrow!...

Certosa Island is a bit out of the way, but it's a relatively quick walk to the San Pietro vaporetto stop (the far east side of Venice), and we ended up sitting in the hotel cafe on the island for about an hour (we didn't want to be late, and we weren't sure how long it would take), and as...

This was the highlight of our trip to Venice. I imagine it's a bit more hair-raising and manic in the height of the season, but off-season it was fabulous. The setting off point is on Certosa island - so plan about 20-30 minutes from St Mark's for the time to get a boat across the lagoon (you'll also need to... More

I approached Venice Kayak with an unusual request: I wanted to photographs the birds around the island and to video underwater with my go-pro camera. Venice Kayak staff went out of their way to accommodate me and I had the most wonderful experience. I recommend kayaking as a low environmental impact way of sightseeing the Venice lagoon. Superb!

I can't get over how magical this tour was. We had a wonderful half day on the water and saw parts of Venice impossible by foot or gondola. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable and I felt totally safe in her hands, even in the middle of the grand canal. The pictures she took were awesome and were available really... More

A dream-come-true, to paddle in Venice! We made a fantastic day tour in the Venice lagoon and a totally awesome night tour in Venice city. Really good guides, both Venetians, made it to more than just a paddle weekend. Now I know a lot about how it is to live in this unique place. Nice detail - the Greenland paddles... More

My husband and my 12-year-old daughter shared a double kayak on a half-day tour this past November. Here's what my daughter has to say: "Venice Kayak offers a beautiful water tour that takes you right into Venice. You get to see the buildings, and the arches of the buildings, and everything like that from a water-point of view. There were... More

I signed up online for the Kayak Venice tour. I took the tour on Oct. 22. I was lucky - there were only 3 of us taking the tour. Our guide, Rene, fitted us with the proper top, life vests, kayak skirt and paddles. The weather was beautiful and we spent a lovely 3+ hours kayaking in the smaller, no-traffic,... More

We did the half day afternoon City tour from 2pm until 5pm on the day of the Venice Marathon. You are provided with all of the gear you need to keep safe and dry so so dont worry about not having the right clothing with you if you decide to do this on the spur of the moment - though... More
