Tofino Expeditions

Celebrating 35 Years of Award Winning Sea Kayaking Tours


Venice has been dazzling visitors for centuries. Linked to the Adriatic Sea, Venice is defined by the Laguna (lagoon) that has sustained it for fifteen centuries. Our “Kayaking Venice” trip is a journey through the beauty and wonder of the 212 square miles Venice Laguna, the largest wetland in Italy and home to a wide range of migratory and resident birdlife. Note: This trip is limited to six participants.
The Laguna is a thriving wetland and an important element of African – Eurasian migratory flyway. Dotted with islands some of which are tiny with the mysterious ruins of ancient structures while others hold farms, villages, and cathedrals. Over centuries the islands have been used to grow food, defend against invaders, provide respite for the elites of the city, and to isolate hazardous activities like the blazing furnaces of Venice’s famous glass craftsmen. The Laguna, its many islands and the city Venice make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

What Guests Are Saying

I have traveled to Venice on a few prior occasions, but the use of kayaks to see the city and the surrounding area may have left the most indelible impression on me. I enjoyed so many aspects of this tour which allowed us to witness the life of the region from a most unique vantage point–in a kayak on the busy canals.
