Gozzo to Go

Take to the sparkling waters surrounding Portofino for a complimentary excursion in our wooden gozzo. These traditional fishing boats embody Portofino’s historic charm. Drift along the Italian Riviera, exploring hidden coves and bays that dot the coast.

Discover San Fruttuoso Abbey with its famed underwater statue. Or anchor for a swim at picturesque Punta Chiappa. Whichever you choose, the perfect way to end the day is with a glass of local wine at Camogli as the sun sets behind the sea. Our charming gozzo is also available for private and longer excursions.
