We’ll first concentrate on the basic stroke for rowing a prua (at the prow), in the boat without moving at first, the as we glide along a wide, quiet canal. We’ll then cross then into the wide open lagoon, where you’ll be encouraged to try rowing a poppa — steering the boat yourself at the stern just like a gondolier. We’ll then row back through the evocative side canals back to the drop-off point.
If you have more than 5 people, we can arrange for multiple lessons, and/or multiple boats. Please write us with your requirements and we’ll arrange your booking.
