Full description

Discover the hidden side of Venice as you kayak through its islands, banks, and marshlands on this tour. Capture stunning pictures of the lagoon in an eco-friendly way.

Meet your guide in Venice and start your kayaking adventure. Learn paddling techniques and security measures to help ensure that your journey through the lagoon is comfortable and safe.

Paddle through the calm waters surrounding the city of Venice without the roar of a motor. Navigate around the verdant islands of Sant’Erasmo and Vignole which are known as the vegetable gardens of Venice as they used to provide the Republic with fruits and vegetables.

Float over the water looking for marine life until you reach the island of Lazzaretto Nuovo, where the concept of “quarantine” was invented in the Middle Ages to prevent Venice from getting sick during an outbreak.

Continue on to admire the 16th-century Sant’Andrea Fort. Finally, stop at Certosa island to view Venice and its unparalleled skyline from a unique perspective.
