Full description

Have you ever dreamed of sailing freely among the islands of the Venice Lagoon?

Make room for your desire for adventure and beauty by hiring a boat on the island of Giudecca and set sail to discover the smaller islands near Venice, from the picturesque Murano and Burano to the lesser-known Vignola and Sant'Erasmo.

You will be able to hire a typical Venetian boat of 6 m and 40 hp without a licence, suitable for a group of up to 6 people. Start choosing your travel companions and enjoy half aday or afull day of exploration!

What we will do

The meeting point is on the island of Giudecca (VE), 40 minutes before the time indicated during the booking process.

On arrival you will be welcomed by the staff to sign the rental contract and accompanied to your boat, which you will find ready in the water: a typical Venetian boat 6 m long and 1.80 m wide, with a 40 HP outboard petrol engine, awning, cushions, sundeck, ladder, GPS tablet, observation tutor and nautical charts at your disposal.

A member of staff will show you the safety equipment and explain all the rules for navigation in the Venice Lagoon. Before departure you will do a test navigation near the pick-up point to learn how to moor, use the GPS and steer the boat.

The island of Giudecca will be your base for exploring the northern part of the Venice Lagoon to the colourful islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. If, on the other hand, you prefer to depart from the classic routes, we recommend heading for the smaller islands of the lagoon, such as Certosa, Vignola, Sant' Andrea and Sant'Erasmo.

Thanks to the observation tutor, the rental staff will be able to stay in contact with you throughout your trip, monitoring your position and providing assistance if necessary. The tablet with GPS navigator and water-resistant PVC charts will allow you to easily find your way around the lagoon and reach your desired destinations.

The rental will last 4 or 8 hours, to be chosen at the time of booking.
