What to expect?

Portofino Full Day Sea Kayak Tour

On board your kayak you will discover charming beautiful places which are rich in history: from the little town of Portofino to Cala degli Inglesi, San Fruttuoso, Punta Chiappa, Porto Pidocchio and Camogli.

The unspoiled landscape of Portofino marine protected area is alive with a variety of wildlife, providing opportunities for the sighting of dolphins, birds such a the cormorant or the grey heron, amongst many other animals and marine species. A pleasant stop for lunch of typical Ligurian focaccia gives you the opportunity of visiting additional points of interest, as the inside of San Fruttuoso Abbey and, more towards the west, the “tonnara” and the fishing village of Camogli.

For those who wish to discover the underwater beauties of Portofino’s marine protected area, the unspoiled coast is the ideal place to snorkel while enjoying breathtaking sceneries. On request, your guide will suggest the most interesting snorkeling spots and give you an introduction to the "usual suspects" that thrive in these waters.
