- you have the chance to live a real Venice Kayak experience

Why is kayaking so cool?
Go eco-friendly and explore the city in a kayak. Real Venetian Kayak offers group and private tours, and even a night kayak experience. The tours bring a unique sea-level perspective you won’t forget.
Venice has no roads, as you know, you can not drive a car here. Therefore, you have to walk or live in the city as original Venetians used to do: with a boat, through its canals.
Kayaking in Venice is a way to see the city from its real side, paddling among the canals, that are used like roads in a normal town. Venetians built Venice on several islands, that are connected to each other through many bridges. Venitian canals have different sizes: some of them are large, and some are very narrow. However, you don’t have to be worried: with a guided kayak excursion you can experience both.
What to expect from our Venice tours?
Enjoying one of our kayak guided tours you will be close to the bases of the Venitian houses, and you will see a lot of doors facing the water. In fact, Venice was built to be lived and seen from the water. Venice and its water are living together. They have a conflictual relationship. If you think about the high tide, the Acqua Alta, that every year covers most of the places in the city. Venice by kayak at high tide is a very unusual experience because you can even paddle inside the city and not just throughout the canals.
Can You Kayak The Canals Of Venice, Italy, During High Tide?
While you might think kayaking is an odd way to explore Venice, recall that Venetians have been rowing boats around for over a thousand years. Now, thanks to the idea of eco-friendly kayaking catching on in Venice, there are professional tours offered. And yes, high tide is one of the best times to explore.
When the tide is high, you may have to duck down under bridges and archways, but the smaller side canals are quiet and peaceful. With your professional guide, you don’t even need to worry about where you may or may not take a kayak. They will take you places others would stay away from altogether.
What do you need to know about our Venice tours?
Venice tours in Italy usually take in the Canal Grande, a ride in a gondola, the iconic Rialto Bridge, and St. Mark’s Square. Of course, these are all things that need ticking off on your bucket list. But there’s much more to Venice than old buildings and black boats. Here are some of the other things you should try as alternatives to the usual excursions.
Before starting the guided kayak excursion, you will be informed about:
- kayak paddling techniques
- security measures
- how to go on a kayak in Venice (rules, right of way etc)
