Our Story

Love for the Venetian Lagoon

Venice Kayak was born out of a love for the Venetian Lagoon, its nature, history and Culture.  Venice Kayak’s founder René, coming from a long background of kayaking wanted to find a way to connect the fun of kayaks and his passion for the Venetian lagoon.

Over 5000 Happy customers!

In 2008, he was able to connect the two by transporting the emotion of kayaking while connecting it with the story of the Venetian Lagoon. Since then, Venice Kayak is proud to have welcomed over 5000 happy customers from all over the world to experience the joy, the beauty of the Venetian lagoon all from the comfort of a kayak.

Our Mission & Values

  1. We believe in respect for Mother Nature. On every tour, we invite our guests to pick up plastic they see floating in the lagoon. To date our guests have collected more floating plastic than you can believe.

  3. Venice Kayak is committed to support and preserve the local Venetian culture by taking guests to local places, managed by local people.
