Discover our two boat cruises from Portofino

The town of Portofino is quintessentially Italian and while the harbour is stunning and the town has much to offer holidaymakers, one of the best ways to see the Italian Riviera coastline is from the water - which is just what you can do on one of our boat cruises from Portofino.

Portofino was originally named Portus Delphini due to the abundance of dolphins that swim off the shoreline and you may well catch a glimpse of these friendly and magnificent creatures on our tour. We offer a range of tour options, examples of which are shown below, but please keep in mind that we customise our tours and holidays so please contact us for a personalised quote and itinerary.
