I would like to recommend that experience with Porto Fino Taxi Boat.
The boat was nice and the skyper very nice. If you go to cinque terre you should go by boat with PortoFinoTaxiBoat.

Amazing experience!

we booked Andrea for a private tour months before we arrived. When we got there, unfortunately weather turned iffy and rather than taking us, he offered us an alternative and helped us book a car, and this meant a loss of 800 euro for himself.
He said he would much rather not take a chance and have us go through rough water. Now that is a great service for you.
Clearly we were impressed and we hope that next time we are in Portofino, the weather would cooperate, so we could use his service again.
We recommend him highly.
Thank you Andrea.

I've taken over 30 excursions around the world over the past 10 years, this was BY FAR the best one my wife and I have ever done.

I wanted to do something that did not involve the cattle call of the large group excursions while in Santa Marg/Portofino. I found them off of this website and reached out to them. Their communication over the internet and in country was awesome! Totally put us at ease.

We met Andrea (request him!) right off of the dock from our cruise ship tender. The green boat was super clean and spacious. Nice large padded area to lounge on during our use. He took us from Santa Marg to Portofino, telling us all about the owners of the homes, the history as well as any other important info. Always so polite to answer all of our questions!

We stayed in Portofino for as long as we wanted to (:45 was enough) and then he took us to a town only accessible by boat!!! San Fruttoso! Only 4 people live there year round. Only 35 live there during the "busy" season. We swam, saw the huge Jesus statue underwater and saw tons of fish. We also had lunch at Georgio's. GET THE MIXED SEAFOOD PLATTER!!! Wow. It's was awesome.

He then took us to see Camogli where we also swam, jumped off of rocks and enjoyed the water. We were then back to our tender by the appropriate hour.

I cannot recommend them enough! It was a super cool experience and one that I'll never forget. We paid 750 euros for 6+ hours, for 8 people. Well worth it. Of course, we tipped on top of that. Call Andrea! He's the best!

We booked an hour trip for our first wedding anniversary and the driver took us to the wonderful bay of San Fruttuoso.
We had an amazing time, the scenery is beautiful and Andrea is such a lovely person: definitely the best boat driver!
I would recommand this trip, it's worth the price and it's definitely a beautiful and original experience: a different way to enjoy Portofino coast.
We'll try to book a longer tour next time we go there, and we'll choose Andrea for sure.
