What To Expect

Laguna di Venezia
We will explore the Venetian Lagoon through alternative itineraries we will sail to the most fascinating places of the lagoon through ghebi and sandbanks we will discover the most unknown and inaccessible islands that can only be reached by kayak which thanks to its flat bottom and rowing propulsion allow you to cross the shallows of the lagoon. Wandering among egrets and herons you will navigate and see incredible scenery, you can take breathtaking photos, or enjoy a beautiful sunny day to discover the most authentic places in the lagoon off the classic routes and mass tourism, we will visit oases of peace and deserted islands in a natural context typical of the lagoon between land and sea.
I invite you to read the article they published in Esquire magazine about the experience.

Isola Torcello
The island of Torcello is located in the north-east corner of the lagoon considered the first Venice To date the island is mainly made up of vegetable gardens and is inhabited only by a few dozen people, while 1500 years ago it was the center of the entire civilization Venetian: during the year 638, the Roman Catholic bishop of Altino, which was then the main Roman city of that area, moved to Torcello together with many other Altinesi due to the pressure provoked by the invasion of the barbarian hordes, thus creating
the first large lagoon settlement.

Filippo is the best!

Great way to explore some of the lagoon that is only accessible by kayak, Filippo the tour guide was very informative and a really nice guy. He made the tour feel alot more personal. I also did another more popular tour which was rated higher but hardly as good.

Thankyou Filippo!
Ahhh to be truly "on the water". Glide over two feet of clear lagoon water and see what it was before "we" got here.

Best Venetian experience. Fillipo was excellent. The tour was inspiring. Learned a lot of history. If you miss this opportunity, you miss a part of this area unspoiled by "tourists". Do yourself a huge favor. Book this tour. It is unparalleled.
We didn’t expect this: FANTASTIC

Absoluty fantastic. First a very interesting introduction of the rowing culture at the rowing club at Burano.
The tour itself was pure joy.
Flamingos, jumping fish..and we went right trough the heart of Torcello
It was an unforgettable experience and of course all because of Filippo the perfect enthusiastic guide.
A wonderful, memorable experience

Fillipo was an excellent guide with lots of local knowledge and information. We found out about the beautiful racing gondolas in the boat yard and thoroughly enjoyed kayaking through the quiet, hidden away lagoon waterways. We saw wild flamingos, locals using traditional fishing methods and curious goats, it was like stepping back in time. Fabulous, memorable tour, highly recommended
