The late afternoon tour in Venice is perfect for those with less time in Venice, taking at most four hours start to end. These tours are also suitable for those with too little kayaking experience to take on the longer tours.
The tour includes a short visit to the Arsenale, the ancient navy docks of Venice, and paddling in the smaller canals in the sestiere Castello.
Typical itinerary for a late afternoon tour in Venice
The afternoon tour in Venice starts at 15:30 in the bar of the Certosa hotel, so we’re ready in our kayaks around 16:15, with a return to the Certosa around 19.
First we visit the Arsenale with some spectacular Biennale artworks on display, and then we paddle through some of the city’s minor canals.
Half day tours are around 8-10km paddling, and they’re normally done without any break.
Groups can be up to 12 persons. Larger groups can be arranged, but must be agreed upon well in advance, as we have to find an assistant guide for larger groups.
Private tours are available on request, if booked well in advance.
The late afternoon tour in Venice is scheduled regularly from late March to late October.
