Tour Description

The Methoni Sea Kayaking Tour begins from the sandy beach of Methoni, next to the impressive fortress, built in a rock that enters the sea and separated from the mainland by an artificial moat.

The town of Methoni, also known as the ‘’eye’’ of Venice in the Mediterranean has been, thanks to its strategic location, important trade and marine centre for the Venetians during medieval years. Across Methoni, lies the ever-green island of Sapientza (Natura 2000 network), home to rare species of flora and fauna, with its seabed “hosting” many ancient shipwrecks of great archaeological value!

Once we prepare our equipment and attend a brief but comprehensive introduction to the basics of sea kayaking, we get into our kayaks for a unique paddling adventure. This sea kayaking journey starts by gliding our kayaks within crystal clear waters near the imposing castle walls, enhanced with impressive arcs and bastions. Heading south we reach the serenity of a beautiful island beach. Here we take a big break to rest, swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters and enjoy a delicious picnic with freshly baked bread, organic garden-grown fruits and vegetables, homemade Greek olive oil and cheese. The network of trails crossing the island leads into an ancient arbutus forest that constitutes a unique ecosystem, home of muffle (wild sheep), wild goats (kri-kri), partridges, pheasants and many other species. Once our break is over we explore the north coast of the island before returning back to the staring point, ending that way a brilliant sea kayaking day!
