Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your LivTours’ Cinque Terre Boat Tour begins when you meet your private skipper and classic Ligurian boat at the harbor in Vernazza, one of the small fishing villages of Cinque Terre famous for its pastel colored houses. Your English-speaking skipper is a local professional who has a wealth of knowledge about the region. They will be happy to share with you stories and anecdotes as you sail by, find secret caves, hidden waterfuls, and allow you to relax and simply take in the scenery.

The Cinque Terre is an incredibly gorgeous UNESCO recognized region. Five small coastal towns make up this historic area, characterized by rugged cliffs, turquoise waters, and brightly painted villages. The steep terrain and lack of roads mean that many visitors to the region hike through the towns via scenic trails. Exploring the coastline by boat is the other, more relaxing option! Your private skipper will tailor your excursion according to how you’d like to spend your time, whether it’s swimming underneath waterfalls and snorkeling past schools of fish or laying back and sunbathing on deck with only the soothing sounds of the sea. Enjoy snacks and fresh, locally made wines as you take in the stunning Riviera scenery. Upgrade your tour to a full 5 hour day to make the absolute most of your holiday!

Your 3 hour boat excursion finishes either at the Vernazza harbor where you began or at Riomaggiore, another seaside town in the Cinque Terre. This luxurious boat tour offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of Italy’s most beautiful coastlines, swim in pristine waters, and have lunch, all in the privacy of your own boat away from the crowds.

"We absolutely LOVED our day in the Cinque Terre. We were taken on a private boat to see each of the five villages, we swam in some of the most beautiful water and saw ghottos and waterfalls that were breathtaking. A beautiful day in a very beautiful area of Italy! Definitely worth it!!"
