This is a great sea kayaking trip to one of the most protected areas in Crete, very close to the Samaria gorge. Our starting point is about an hour’s driving from the town of Chania and is mostly suitable for those staying in West Crete (along with Kalyves trip) and/or near Rethymno town. It goes without saying that anyone is welcomed to join from any other part of Crete but you must first check the driving distance (e.g. it takes about 2.5 hours from Heraklion). The distance that we will paddle is around 15km and there will be plenty of time for swimming and snorkelling on remote beaches, accessible only by the sea.
After a short introduction to sea kayaking, we will start paddling towards Loutro, one of the most protected bays for sea kayaking in Crete! On our way we will make stops swimming and snorkelling, witnessing the beauty of various beaches, sea caves and rock formations.
Lunch is in Loutro where you can either eat in a tavern or simply bring your own. The food in the village is excellent and there is a wide selection for vegetarians as well.
Easy. We keep a stable and comfortable paddling pace and there’s sufficient rest time during our stops. Participants should be in good physical condition and able to swim. Our experienced trip leaders ensure that everybody is happy, safe and having a great time!
Children need to be accompanied by an adult.
Price is based on a minimum attendance of 2 people (for less or more participants, feel free to contact us).
