Visiting Venice on a stand-up paddling board is such an amazing experience that you'll remember it for the rest of your life. You will paddle among canals with one expert and experienced local tour guide who was born and raised in Venice and know it like the back of his hand. Our tour takes slightly less than two hours total and it will give you the opportunity to enjoy all the architectural details of the city that you cannot notice from the ground. During the kayak tour, we will stop several times to admire some of the most famous and beautiful palaces, canals and churches of the city, with some historical explanation about each place. The main attractions that we will visit together are located in Sestiere Cannaregio e Castello. However, the itinerary of the tour can be slightly changed according to weather and tide conditions. SUP has many benefits compared to other ways of visiting the city: it allows you to see hidden parts, not accessible on foot, it allows you to have fun and do sport while looking at the architectonic beauty of the city.
I have been kayaking, stand up paddling and rowing since 2003. I decided to start organizing Guided SUP Tours in Venice with other local experienced SUP guides (Federico, Giovanni, Francesco, Mirto, Ben) to share with locals and tourists our love for Stand Up Paddle, an outdoor activity that gets you to discover the hidden gems of nature and of an incredible city like Venice. I am a certified FICK trainer (Italian Federation of Canoe and Kayak). I have many years of experience working as a tour leader, as well.
