What is Sea Kayak?
Sea kayaks are long and fast paddling boats designed to safely cover long distances easily and resiliently even in difficult weather conditions. They are used all over the world for sea journeys from a few hours to several weeks. They can accommodate one or two paddlers and have septic storage areas for complete autonomy and transportation of equipment, food, water, and other supplies. With a sea kayak one has the ability to travel to the sea in a completely different way than a motorboat.
How does a Sea Kayak trip work?
Α sea kayaking trip is extraordinary and does not require previous experience. After a short lesson where you learn about the boat, the equipment, and paddling techniques and safety parameters, you are ready for your journey. All you need is an appetite for exploration and love for the sea. Trips with sea kayak for beginners in their tourist form can be made either on coastal routes or in small crossings from island to island. The purpose of the trip is to explore the coastline and admire the marine environment in a unique way.
What if I've never kayaked before?
Most of our customers are first-timers. This trip is easy to catch it up and beginners can complete a decent journey on their first-time sea kayaking trip. The kayaks you will be using are super stable and suit all levels of paddlers, even if you have never paddled before. Our experienced guides will take you through the basic skills so you have the knowledge and adequate paddling capability to enjoy a day at the sea.
What will be the pace?
All of our trips are about journeying. We paddle at a relaxed pace; we learn on the move and enjoy the marine environment. If you are a group of experienced paddlers wanting to complete a demanding journey then a private trip would be the best option.
What should I wear?
We suggest wearing clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit wet. Swimwear is essential if you wish to swim, a quick-dry t-shirt, hat, sunglasses, shorts. Running shoes and socks are not recommended as they tend to get soggy. Sea shoes, sandals or flip flops are fine. A lightweight polypropylene or ﬂeece layer should be included in early spring and late fall tours. Dry bags are provided where you can store your phone or some other personal belongings.
Who are the people that will guide us?
Professional local kayak leaders trained and certified by the British Canoeing (BC) with a great knowledge of the area and the marine environment.
Is this Sea Kayaking trip suitable for families with kids?
Absolutely Yes! A family sea kayak tour is fun, educational, stimulating, and surprisingly relaxing for parents who wish to have their kids engaged in the experience exploring the marine environment and the outdoors in a safe and controlled way. We offer discounted rates for families with kids on some tours.
What is the trip best suited for me, how do I choose?
All of our trips are designed to be suitable for everybody. Each one has its own unique characteristics. The best way to choose a trip among others is to check which one departs closer to the place you are staying.
Do you offer private trips?
Yes, we can organize a private tour, standard or tailor-made, just for you, your family, or your friends.
Should I book a standard trip or a private trip?
If you are happy to hike with a mixed group or don't want to spend as much money then booking a standard group trip is the best way to go. Private trips really work best with groups of experienced hikers or groups of friends who want to do something a bit different, would like to do a more advanced journey, or just want to have privacy and enjoy the trip just themselves.
Is lunch provided?
Yes, simple, nutritious, and flavorsome, food is one of the pleasures during our trips. Halfway we make a relaxing stop at a nice place to taste a picnic with freshly baked bread, organic garden-grown fruits and vegetables, homemade olive oil, and cheese.
What route will we take?
We usually perform our tours within a certain route aiming to visit the most beautiful spots each trip has to offer, however; your guide is likely to choose an alternative route that suits the conditions on the day and the experience and needs of the group. This is the safest and best way to operate Kayaking trips.
Where do I park my car?
You can park your vehicle safely and for free near our meeting point. Feel free to ask us about the parking conditions for a specific trip.
What happens if the weather is unsuitable?
A hiking trip is either canceled and we return your money back or arranged for another day.
