Loved the half day trip but would have loved the chance to get off at two stops and not just one. A full day with limited time in Genoa meant we couldn’t do the full day.
Staff were friendly and it was value for money....More

We were on their whole day tour (9 am - 6.30pm) from Genoa old port to Camiglio, San Fruttuoso and Portofino. The boats were always punctual and the staff on board very professional. If you take the whole day tour, you can stop for one...More

We recently visited Genoa with the aim of taking a boat trip along the Liguria Coast and were so pleased that we used the 'Golfo Paradiso' service. Various trips are offered but we chose the all day sailing that stopped at three beautiful sites -...More
Fantastic trip... a must do trip in Genoa and fantastic value for money! The boat trip takes 1hr 50 from Genoa to Portofino (with 3 or 4 stops). Had an hour and 10 minutes in Portofino (enough to do a little exploring and have an...More
A beautiful trip along the coast from Camogli to visit San Fruttuoso - and return. The ship was very well kept and staff friendly and polite. It seems to be an efficient ferry service bringing supplies to the locals in San Rocco and San Fruttuoso...More
We were on the island San Fruttuoso and returning to Recco. One of the boat hands pushed my adult son and wife and was so rude I was amazed. I would have called the police if I could. I would rate this a do not...More
We used this company on 3 separate days, out of Genoa...port antico. We went to Camogli, my favorite, to San Fruttuoso, to Portofino, to Vernazza, to Monterosso. We decided to visit all of the cities by way of a water taxi, and very much enjoyed...More
These boat tours (Portofino and Cinque Terre) are very good value but, for an overseas tourist, they can be quite dull. All explanations about the visited sites (other than the instructions when to get on or off) are made in Italian only. Unless you speak...More
Does anyone know of any other companies other than Golfo Paradiso that do day boat trips to Cinque Terre allowing for time at some of the villages. It appears Golfo Paradiso only operate on a Saturday (July 2017) and at this stage our plans do not have us in Camogli on a Saturday. I have emailed the company to clarify but was also hoping someone may know of an alternative. Many thanks.

Many thanks Nuriootpa. I was hoping to find something that would stop in Camogli to pick up/drop off but maybe that is not an option.
Cinque Terre or Golfo Paradiso (7 Replies)
Hello, My wife and I are coming into Genoa via train from Milan in late October. We will be in the area for 6 nights. We would like to see sections of either Cinque Terre or Golfo Paradiso while also seeing areas of Genoa like Nevi and Boccadasse. Question is where to stay so that most of these areas will be accessible for day trips? I am not renting a car, so am counting on walking, buses and trians. Thank you for any suggestions!

Without a car, and at that time of year with buses/ferries reduced, you should stay somewhere on the train line, so that excludes the Golfo Paradiso towns.

Boat from Genoa to Portofino (1 Reply)
We will be in Genoa the weekend of May 19,20 and want to take the boat to Portofino then get to Santa Margherita (walk?) and take the train back to Genoa. Does anyone know how long the boat ride will be? I have checked the Golfo Paradiso website but its no clear. I believe the boat leaves Genoa at 10:00 from Porto Antico. Thanks for your responses in advance. Janet
