  • About me

    We travel for happyness

    I am Eliana and I am Venetian. Art and History have always been my passion. As a small child I started to express myself by painting and drawing what I saw. Now as a Tourist Guide those colours have become my voice as I describe the beauty that surrounds me, which is part of my life, and which I'm proud to share with my guests. Every journey starts as a discovery of ourselves, this is also the spirit that drove the first anthropologists to leave their desks in search of the exotic. This is the innermost purpose of every traveller, searching for the answer to the eternal question: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? (P. Gauguin, 1897).

  • FAQS

    Meeting point

    Please see how to get here following the map you find in the MAP box of this webstite. You will not see any flag or name outside our door because it looks like a private house from outside. It is not a shop, therefore you will find the door open for you at the arranged time only.

    Personal belongings

    At our spot there is room to lock our belongings and toilettes.

    Dressing Code

    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 4 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

    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.

    How long

    90 minutes of activity that includes a short briefing before leaving.


    Please book in advance in order to reserve your SUP in Venice experience, the sooner the better.


    Boards, leash and paddles are included. We provide 11' all round very stable school boards, soft top for the most comfortable touring. You are not allowed to use your private boards in the city by law.

    Weather conditions

    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.


    You need to be expert paddler and your dog has to be trained to stay on board without jumping into the water at all.
