Day 1: The trip officially beginsat 10:00am at the Naples Train Station Stazione Centrale (Piazza Garibaldi), or otherwise by arrangement. From the train station, we will head to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, the famous site of the tragic volcanic eruption burying Pompeii and neighboring Herculaneum. We will have a tour of Pompeii, and then shuttle down to Amalfi. There are many options for lunch in Amalfi. You’ll have some free time in the afternoon to explore Amalfi. We’ll get together to enjoy the incredible Italian culture, have a drink and begin to get to know one another. We will review the itinerary for the week and answer whatever questions you may have. D Day 2: After breakfast, we will outfit everyone with a paddle, PFD and sprayskirt, then head across the street to the beach where we will provide basic kayaking instruction. Once we have gained a comfortable level handling our kayaks, the group will head off along the Amalfi coast toward Salerno. Lunch will be enjoyed in Minori or Maiori two neighboring communities offering a taste of life on the Amalfi coast. A wonderful dryland treat is the open air Villa Museum in Minori featuring a well preserved Villa and numerous artifacts revealing the lifestyle along this coast hundreds of years ago. Returning to Amalfi, you will have some free time to relax and soak in the sights. We’ll end the day exploring the famous narrow streets of Ravello. B,D Day 3: We will get an early start as the day’s sea kayaking will take us along one of the most famous coastlines in Italy with our final destination being the enchanting city of Positano. The coastline of Amalfi offers you an opportunity to experience a blend of nature and architecture like no other. The view from the waterline highlights the ingenuity and craftsmanship of Italian building. Your vision will blur as you focus on the wonderment of history displayed along this amazing stretch of coastline. Lunch will be enjoyed at one of the many water access ports along the coast. Arriving in the elegant and cosmopolitan Positano, you will have a chance to explore the steep city streets and wander up into the hillside grabbing a bird’s eye view of the water below. We’ll celebrate our accomplishments with another wonderful dinner experience. B, D Day 4: We will depart from Positano, heading along the coastline to Recommone. Today’s paddle will take you away from the shoreline communities and along a stretch of remote Amalfi coastline. The steep countryside along this stretch offers a glimpse into a region that is untouched by the hand of development. Ancient towers once occupied by the varied world emperors are the only remaining structures. Recommone, our final destination, offers a remote and rural setting. This water access only village is hard to find on most maps but offers true Italian luxury. We plan to spend two nights in Recommone. B,D Day 5: You will wake to find yourself with plenty of options. The day will be structured to provide you with numerous options: take a hike to ancient Turkish ruins, paddle to the nationally protected island of Isca or pull up a beach chair and enjoy the Mediterranean warmth. Marina de Cantone a short half-mile walk or paddle offers lunch options and our first views of Capri. The choice is yours- we will help guide the way. B,D Day 6: With a full day of exciting paddling ahead, we will depart early from Recommone and head west towards the Isle of Capri. Today’s paddle will take you along the remaining coastline of the Amalfi Peninsula into the open waters of the Gulf of Naples. Your horizon will open and fill with views of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius and of course our final destination, the Isle of Capri. The length of paddling today is 12 miles. Dinner this evening will be on your own. Hotel shuttles will provide transportation to Marina Grande or enjoy a pleasant evening in the quiet and friendly Marina Piccola. B Day 7: Today you will explore Capri like no other. Our goal: a complete paddling loop of the Isle of Capri. The reward: breathtaking views, rugged coastline, a glimpse at an island enchanted with Italian romance. We will make sure to include delicious cappuccino stops and as always, a hearty lunch. Dinner will be enjoyed overlooking the Arch de Natural and the breathtaking Amalfi coast. Memories made and stories embellished, we will enjoy our final Italian food and drink experience. B,D Day 8: The trip officially ends on Capri in the morning. You will have the option to board a ferry directly to Naples where a short taxi ride (not included) will drop you at the train station or airport. Those with no time commitments can ferry to Sorrento for transportation back to Naples. B Note: This is our intended itinerary. As with any adventure travel, the forces of nature can be unpredictable, causing us to make adjustments and changes to the itinerary. Rest assured that we will have numerous options if changes need to be made. If it is too windy to paddle, various hiking, cultural and historical options will make you glad for the winds.
