Full description
Your trip starts at Kardamyli’s old harbor. Before departure, you will be briefed on some details including kayak paddling techniques and safety measures. Soon, you'll get into your kayak and begin paddling at a relaxed pace giving you time to take in the beautiful surroundings. Each cove hides a special surprise such as hidden sea caves, rock gardens, cliffs with spectacular rock formations, and hidden sandy beaches. One of the top attractions on this trip is a visit to the Blue Cave, a spectacular natural phenomenon where sunlight passes through a crack in the cave and reflects on the seafloor, bathing the entire cave in aquamarine light. A swim into the cave is a once in a lifetime experience. Weather and time permitting, you may head to Stoupa for a stop at the beach of Kalogria with its fine golden sand and turquoise waters. Halfway, stop for some swimming, snorkeling and a picnic with freshly baked bread, organic fruits and vegetables, homemade olive oil, and cheese. Once the lunch stop is over, you'll paddle back to the starting point to end this fun, adventurous day.

Wonderfully unique tour with very experienced and passionate guides. George&George (they are really both called) gave us a few great and eventful hours. After a fun kayaking lesson, we set off on the crystal-clear sea. The tour took us into huge caves, to exciting grottos with a big surprise (we won't tell anyone here) and to wonderful bays. Even the lunch was uniquely presented and was an experience! Thank you George&George!

A wonderful adventure. George and Roque do a splendid job. Equipment is high quality and everyone is made to feel at ease before heading off. The trip along the coast is interspersed with fascinating history and anecdotes from George. The caves and swim are not to be missed. A picnic on the beach before heading back rounds off 4 hours exceedingly well spent.
