Full description

Are you fantasising about your next trip to Liguria? Here's one you really can't miss!

Set sail from Rapallo together with a friendly skipper for a private 4-hour dinghy tour. Sail in the Gulf of Tigullio and admire from the sea the beauties of Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino with its famous piazzetta and lighthouse, and the abbey of San Fruttuoso.

Choose the company to take with you and get ready for half a day of relaxation and fun in pure Ligurian style.

What we will do

The meeting point is Rapallo (GE), 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

Here you will meet the skipper, who will take you on the dinghy reserved for you and your group of up to 8 passengers. Once you have taken your place on board, you will begin your half-day tour to discover the Gulf of Tigullio.

The first stop will be Santa Margherita Ligure, which from the sea will captivate you with the colours of its houses along the harbour. You will then continue on to Portofino, to admire from the dinghy its terraced houses, an enchanting place with a worldly atmosphere; you will pass under Castello Brown and the lighthouse, located on the Portofino promontory.

Finally, the tour will take you to San Fruttuoso, where you will have a beautiful view of the abbey built against the bay. If you are lucky, dolphins might accompany your navigation with a few leaps into the waves!

During the excursion, the skipper will allow you to make 2 swimming stops of 15-20 minutes for a dip in the crystal-clear waters of the gulf, in locations chosen according to the weather and sea conditions of the day.

The return to Rapallo is scheduled after a 4-hour excursion.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is suitable for everyone, with no age limit. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult, while those 12 and older may participate with a signed parental release.

The boat is not accessible for wheelchair users or persons with reduced mobility.
