No bare chest or swim suits in all Venice. You'll be ok in your t-shirt and shorts in summertime. In Autumn and Springtime it can be quite chilly, therefore you might need your booties, long trousers, wind jacket. Bring a towel and a change just in case.
Number of participants
The tour hosts maximum 6 people in the group. Boards, leash and paddles are included. These are private sessions, in order to give you the best service we do not add other participants to your tour. Please contact us if your group is bigger. We will provide tailor made excursions according to your needs.
The route of the SUP tour is decided time by time by the Instructor/SUP guide. It depends on the level of the participants, on the conditions of the weather, the level of the tide, on the conditions of the traffic. The tour takes 100 minutes.
Boards, leash and paddles are included. We provide 11' all round very stable school boards, soft top for the most comfortable touring.
Tours are subject to weather conditions, such as rain or strong winds. Please be available by telephone or e-mail once you are in Venice in case we need to get in touch.
First time paddlers
As swimming is totally forbidden in the canals, we are not allowed to jump in the water. You don't need to be a pro, just be confident with the basic SUP techniques: you need to stop the board at the crossings or junctions also in the current and you need to know how to veer 90° sharp (no surfing stance, paddle back turn is what you need to know) if you are first time on a SUP please ask for our SUP Beginners tour. This package is designed to provide the skills you need to paddle in our SUP excursions in Venice.
Children with you
According to Venetian navigation law, over 14 years old only can SUP in the canals of the lagoon. For this reason we have special tailored tours for families with kids. Please contact us for more details and prices at firstname.lastname@example.org.
