Your trip begins from the marina of Pylos. Before departing, you will be briefed on trip details, kayak paddling techniques, and safety measures. Soon you will be paddling by the town of Pylos and the castle of Niokastro heading towards the Tsihli Baba, an imposing monolithic islet with an impressive rock arch formed at its northern tip. Weather permitting, you will circumnavigate the islet, visit a few of its sea caves and paddle through its tunnels and arches. Your next stop will be the one and only accessible from the sea beach of the island of Sphacteria.

We had a fantastic day in the kayaks with George and the orher guide. They took time explaining everything before we went out and they where very attentative on the whole trip. The cave with the blue water was very beautiful and a great experience to swim in it. We had a very simple greek lunch at the beach. The trip can definitely be recommended.

Thank you very much to our great guide Georges, a fascinating, funny and totally competent professional and dedicated teacher. And to his charming collaborator Anna.
