Introduction

Hello from Italy.

 

Hello from Italy.
I’m Marco Venturini of TravelinKayak, ACA (American Canoe Association) whitewater and coastal kayaking instructor.
Our specialty are tailor-made trips and quality-sea kayaking journeys for small groups.
We are based in Central Italy from where it’s easy to reach the best kayaking spots of the
warm and charming Mediterranean Sea (Sardinia, Croatia, Corsica, Greece, Southern
Italy).
We are dealers/agents for some of the best British sea kayaks  (Nigel Dennis, Valley, Rockpool, Northshoreand we own a beautiful fleet of sea kayaks
(composite and polyethylene, single and doubles) with top equipment, trailer and
multivans. We offer a complete service and provide you with everything you need for
kayaking except your personal technical clothes).
We are passionate about slow travels, kayaking and active journeys. We take pride in the
authenticity and unicity of our exclusively designed trips and see ourselves as
ambassadors of culture and explorers of wilderness.

Our mission is to offer stylish and enjoyable journeys, enriched by an immersive
experience of the beauties of the Mediterranean culture and landscape.
We love life-style, culture, nature.
We are proud of more than 10 years of experience in leading kayaking groups safely and
having fun, at times in partnership with international paddlers and top outfitters.

About me

20180822_172148

 

It all began with my great passion for kayaking and traveling. Then came the desire to
share these passions by putting my creativity and experience to work, and the idea of
offering real experiences, activities and trips that are original and fascinating.
I have a heritage of seamanship, more than 20 years of practice, and now more than 10
years of experience in leading kayaking trips.
After all these years, I’m still passionate about what led me here in the first place:
kayaking, hiking, biking, traveling, as well as history, tradition and culture.
I’m curious, always looking for something special, always intent on fully experiencing what is around me. I take my leading role seriously and responsibly. Which makes of me an outdoor man that firmly believes in and follows the “Leave No Trace” principles.

I trust people, I’m discreet.

Marco Venturini.
