Como Italy Boat Rentals

Como Italy boat rentals are a guaranteed way to see all there is to see along the shores of the lake, which is a very popular vacation destination. There are many quaint towns along the lakefront, such as Varenna, Bellagio, and Menaggio, and boating on Lake Como Italy provides visitors with a leisurely way to see these places, plus easy access to numerous activities both on the water and on land.

As Lake Como is one of the premier vacation destinations in Europe, there is great infrastructure for travelers, and thus there are many options for boat rentals. You can take guided tours or simply enjoy on your own the mountain vistas reflected on the mesmerizing blue-green water as you glide along the lake. Boating on Lake Como provides stunning views of not only the mountains and valleys but also the quaint cities lining the shores each with its own history. Each village is picturesque beckoning to you to stop and take a stroll along the ancient streets.

One of the great things about Como Italy boat rentals are the many different types of watercraft available. The guided tours tend to accommodation slightly larger groups, but for solitary boating excursions, you can rent a kayak and explore the many nooks and crannies along the shoreline. Couples can enjoy a leisurely jaunt on the lake by renting a canoe. If you’d prefer a motorized watercraft, the rental companies have these as well. Boats with 40 horsepower or less don’t require a license, but boats larger than 40 horsepower will require one.

For families or large groups of travelers interested in exploring the lake, private boat rentals with a licensed driver allow you to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, and relax while making stops at the towns and villages surrounding the lake. Private Lake Como boat rentals can be found in area towns on the lake such as Menaggio and Bellagio conducting tours on the lake. Depending on the size of your group and the boat needed, group rates can be very budget-friendly.

For vacationers exploring Lake Como on their own, located along the shores of the lake are docking areas where you can disembark, purchase gas if necessary, go sightseeing, shop, and have a pleasant meal before continuing with your lake tour. Note that some docking areas are well-equipped with provisions and equipment for boaters, while others are strictly for docking purposes only.

Depending on the size or type of boat, for your convenience restrooms and snacks may be available. When booking your boat rental with a guided tour, be sure to check if disembarking at the towns and villages is part of the tour. If you want to see some of the most beautiful attractions in the region, it’s worth looking for a boat tour that combines trips around the lake with visits to some of the villas, such as the stunning Villa Carlotta. There are also many water sports to try, including swimming, diving, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing on Lake Como, and it may be possible to combine these with a boat tour as well.
