Meet your guide in Monterosso to begin your kayaking adventure. Pack your own lunch snacks for the ride and get comfortable on your kayak with a brief safety overview before heading out.

Slip on your life jacket, settle into your single or double kayak and set off with your guide on the beautiful blue waters. All skill levels can be accommodated, regardless of whether you’re a first-timer or paddling pro.

Glide into the Cinque Terre Protected Marine Area, admiring views of the surrounding cliffs. As you paddle at a relaxed pace, keep your eyes out for seabirds and dolphins.

Pass the terraced hills of Vernazza, the village celebrated for its wine production, before pulling into Guvano beach. Spread out with your snacks and take in some sun or recharge with a dip.

After some down time, hop back in your kayak and head toward the colorful town of Corniglia. Enjoy more time ashore or, if you wish, continue kayaking south toward Manarola and Riomaggiore.

After five hours of seaside exploration, your tour will conclude at your original departure point.

Sunset Option (2.5 hours):

Depart from Monterosso at 4,30pm aboard your kayak. Take in the sunset and enjoy the sea at an hour when the crowds are gone and everything is quieter. Paddle toward Vernazza to discover its cliffs and caves, stop at a waterfall spring, and take a dip in the water.

Then pull into a quiet cove accessible only by sea for an Italian aperitivo. Enjoy local organic wine and focaccia from Liguria before heading back to your original departure point.

Great to work off the pasta. Which is less than 100 characters but who cares other than this website.
Nice trip, shame we didn’t get the photos

Really nice trip and very friendly guide. My wife and I did the sunset kayak tour as part of our honeymoon. We would have loved the photos afterwards but weren’t sent these (even though we requested them)
Take a waterproof camera!

This was a fantastic experience. The guides were very personable (Simon and Jack) and threw in some history for us along the way. We saw some lovely scenery, including a cave you can't see without small craft, a freshwater waterfall feeding into the sea, and finished off with a swim in a secluded cove with some wine and local focaccia. The only downside was the inability to take our own photos (due to lack of waterproofing), and instead had to rely on Simon to take photos - I would have taken so many more of the scenery!
Kayak to Vernazza

We had a great time and a great guide. The views from the water were great. We stopped to snorkel twice. My teen girls had fun. The guide Simone was excellent

Our guide was wonderful. Lots of interesting information about 5 terre. The added wine and foccacia was a big plus!! I would definately recommend this, especially if you love the outdoors and being active.
Fantastic experience

Our two guides were wonderful. Both were very capable of handling the larger varied group of experienced and non-experience kayakers. They kept us engaged and not bored as we waited for those who were less experienced to catch up. The food and wine was the best we had in that area. That was a nice surprise as we were not expecting that.
Amazing Experience!
