What you'll do

Welcome!! We invite you to join us for a float down the waterways of the gorgeous Venice Canals of Los Angeles.

We will canoe beside you, getting great photographs of your entire experience floating under bridges and through the maze of canals.

An oasis in LA, Venice canal homes feature amazing suburban architecture as well a variety of bird species. Venice of America was constructed in the early 1900s, meant to draw tourists to the west.

The Venice Canals was once part of an eclectic scene of theme parks, bath houses, rollercoasters, dance halls, and more. This section of Venice Canals is one the only part that remains.

Best time? Request one if you don’t see it! Any time of day is great but we only do weekends since we each work during the week. I recommend booking a sunset tour if you can make it, it’s incredible!

For special requests such as proposals or elopement, please send us a note. We offer various services such as drone photography or banner placement to make your magical moment one you’ll always remember.

We can’t wait to have you join us on the Venice Canals!

Hello! My name is Raleigh, and I also run this experience with my partner, Mark.

We have lived in Venice for about four years. Both of us have spent significant time traveling abroad. We understand the value of seeing a local place through the eyes of someone who lives there. We hope to share the beauty and history of the canals through tours!

We can't wait to share this experience with you!!

Where you'll be

We will meet at the bridge outside of our home where we have our boats docked. There is ample street parking in the area, so no need to pay for parking. The canals are a gorgeous and exclusive community with water going right up to the doorsteps of many multimillion dollar homes.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 52 reviews.

Great way to spend a beautiful afternoon. I was really glad there was a three-person canoe and that puppy Olive was willing to come along.

It was a memorable tour! A truly unique setting, with a great guide. Very relaxing, gliding down the canals, seeing so many beautiful homes.

The ducks literally reversed direction for my film shot and no crabs were injured in the making of my shots! 🦩🐟🕊🦋🦀🦆 Beautiful sunset shots which gave way to fish-jumping after 5 <3 <3 <3

This tour was so amazing! Mark treated us like family, and we all had a blast, especially my 7 year old. Would highly recommend!

This was a really magical evening: paddling the nearly silent canals just as the sun went down, waving to people walking on the nearby paths, chilling to a little mood music provided by Mark…sigh. It was a GREAT way to see LA from a different vantage point, and Mark was a witty and absolutely charming host and guide, full of fun facts about Venice and exhibiting excellent musical taste. We went at 6, and—at this time of year—we got to experience the water both with and without sunlight. Go a little earlier if you don’t fancy a dark paddle—or, on the other hand, enjoy the peace and mystery! Highly recommended!
