Full description

Meet your guides at the starting point right next to the water. Before departure, your guide will brief you on trip details, kayak paddling techniques, and safety measures. Soon we will be exploring the coast at a relaxed paddling pace. Your guides will narrate some of the region’s legends and stories. Each little cove hides a special surprise such as hidden sea caves, rock gardens, and cliffs with spectacular formations. From your kayak you can see through the crystal-clear water the sea life and if you are lucky, a sea turtle swimming under you. One of the top attractions of this trip is a visit to the Blue Cave. It is a spectacular natural phenomenon where sunlight passing through a cave crack reflects an aquamarine color on the seafloor. A swim in the cave is a must-do and a lifetime experience. On the way, we discover rock pyramids emerging from the sea. An option here for those daring is to try cliff diving. Halfway we shall make a relaxing stop for swimming, snorkeling and to taste a homemade picnic of fresh local delicacies. After lunch, we shall paddle back to the starting point to end a remarkable day at the coastline of Mani.
