What to expect?

SUP Tour in Portofino

Meet your local Tour Guide in Niasca, a sandy beach nestled in the vegetation of the Mediterranean sea, next to Paraggi Bay, famous for its crystal clear blue water. Get settled, leave your belongings safely in the outdoor sports center and start the tour with your local guide. A briefing on safety procedures and information about the Park will prepare yourself for the tour.

Gliding into Niasca’s bay, the extraordinary panorama of the gulf of Paraggi will immediately seduce you. The bay is closed to boat traffic and is therefore ideal to build confidence with the paddle board before starting the route towards Portofino.

Portofino’s Marine Protected Area has one of the most beautiful and unspoiled coastlines in the world. The tour allows you to visit the most important natural and cultural highlights of this area: Paraggi’s ecosystem, Portofino’s lighthouse and harbor, Olivetta beach dominated by centuries-old maritime pines and the eighteen-century Church of San Giorgio.

Your paddle board will allow you to reach caverns and hidden creeks along the coast, establishing a real contact with nature and the surrounding environment.

During this 1.5-hour tour you will always be in the company of your local guide, who wil be most happy to share tips and knowledge on paddle boarding and on the local history and culture.
