Water canals are the Venice hometown roads: locals and natives go about their business in the exact way as people use to do elsewhere. Gondolas and rowing wooden boat on one side, and motor boats for wares and people transportation on the other.
There is a new and really fancy way to travel Venice’s canals: by kayak. We had an amazing trial this summer in such sit-on-top boats, really stable and easy to use. Managed by natives, Kayak Rental – Venice By Water really offers something different, easy, attractive and particularly environmentally friendly.
Filippo is one of the skilled natives taking care of the customers looking for this unexpected experience in the Lagoon: “This is a new activity and clients are various: young, old, expert, or beginners, groups or individuals; couples can get a kayak for two, or you can opt for the single one. As we did!“ Fantastic, 90 minutes easily spent canoeing in lot of canals, with Filippo as a skilled guide: excited for this fantastic perspective of Venice from the water surface, with a very small effort and no risks. Muchmore: all the gondolas guests smiles to us wondering! Chances and tours are really many: sport and nature for the bravest, food tasting for sweet tooth, relaxing itineraries for families, history buffs circuits, team building excursions and many others. Infact, the day after our first trial we choose with Filippo an history circuit, and, always sun shining, we enjoy a water trip through history. We paddle out also throgh the Grand Canal where boats are everywhere. But the most wonderful atmosphere, the hidden Venice one, is deep inside Venice, down narrower and narrower canals that only smaller boats as ours can access. Be sure,said Filippo, and I personally agree 100% “ we see parts of the city that only few other visitors ever get to witness on land or by boat”. It was true: this was an incredible opportunity. Last thing, it’s not important to be an expert or a sailor, the staff of Kayak Rental – Venice By Water teach you and guide you if you need, together with the right dresses and equipment in the costs.
