SUP Tour Amalfi Coast – Cetara to Erchie

This is the second time I’ve done a SUP (Stand Up Paddling) tour with this company and it is one of my favorites.  The water has been very calm both times and the views are amazing.  They launch from Hotel Cetus (parking is at the hotel) near Cetara and have 2 options to go towards the beach in Vietri or to go around the cape past Erchie.  Both directions take 2 hours are amazingly awesome.  The trip to and from Vietri is a bit easier as you’re more protected and the water is generally calmer.  In the afternoons, the wind picks up near Cetara.  Morning tours are best.  The guides carry insurance, follow along in a boat and take pictures.  The company provides the SUP boards, paddles, life jackets and safety leashes.  Great experience.  I’ve been talking to them about rates, so if you’d like to book, mention me (Julie) when you email or call Giusy for better rates or contact me and I’ll help you schedule a tour.  They do provide a guide that can give instructions.  Amazing and a MUST DO!  Minimum 2 people, maximum 5 people.  Rates vary from €45-55 per person, depending on number in group.
