For fans of canoeing and kayaking the territory of the Northern Beaches offers a variety of areas and possibilities: in addition to the sea there are the rivers which lead to some of the wetland areas in the park, such as Pialassa della Baiona and the Mandriole and Comacchio Valleys. Please note that access to Punte Alberete is strictly forbidden.
- Remember that the speed of the current is more noticable in the open sea and in the channels, compared to in the valleys or in shallow marshes. Before you leave, don’t forget to take the tidal movement into account.
- It is always necessary to monitor the wind – an important consideration for canoeists – as it can cause waves and make it difficult to progress. It is therefore inadvisable to go out into large, open spaces on windy days, but to keep within the more sheltered and calm internal routes.
The association “Gruppo Canoa Ravenna ASD” organises guided tours for groups (4 to 14 people) in a kayak with two seats at Piallassa della Baiona, from April/ May to September. Phone bookings: UISP Ravenna (Alberto) 0544-219724.
You can also hire canoes or kayaks at some lidos.
