venice from a canal boat
The Venetian Lagoon and your first sight of Piazza San Marco will become unforgettable moments of your boating holidays. Renting one of our self-drive boats will enable you to visit off the beaten track islands and to use deserted jetties, following itineraries unknown to other tourists. As you head south, Chioggia, a magnificent small town linked to the mainland by bridges is the first entrance into the lagoon from the open sea. Following the canals, your Pénichette® will take you through the traditional fishing village of Pellestrina, with its ochre and yellow houses. Crossing the Malamocco inlet, you will will eventually arrive at Venice.
Cruising the Venice Lagoon on a Pénichette® will generate lifetime memories. Passing sleepy villages, Historical cities, fishermen’s settlements and trendy beaches as the Lido will make your boating holidays truly unique. The vast lagoon is separated from the sea by a narrow neck of land. Chioggia, the starting point of your cruise is a lovely little town. Aboard your Pénichette®, you follow the deep water channels to the traditional fishing village of Pellestrina, then cross the Malamocco shipping channel and head for Venice. Arriving in Venice offers striking views of the Palace of the Doges. Heading north you will encounter a myriad of romantic islands like Murano, Burano or Torcello. You can choose to extend your trip to Treviso, on the lovely Sile river or the channelled Brenta.
There are boats for all budgets: Price starts as low as 190 Euros / day for a Con Fly cruiser (4 to 6 persons). Our largest and most modern penichette 15.00 Flying bridge accommodating 8 to 12 people will cost 417 Euros / day in low season.
how to choose?
Choosing the right boat is important. Don't get misled by the maximum number of passengers on board. It's good practice to limit the number of guests on board to the number of permanent berths in cabins and avoid using the convertible folding table as additional sleeping area.
It is essential to book well ahead of time to get the boat you want. We accept booking up to a year ahead of cruising. We look forward to welcoming you on board.
