Sea kayaking info

General information about the activity of Sea-Kayaking.

The long intervals of good weather, the long days in the summer, the crystal clear water, the endless and polymorphous coastline, islands or mainland, are five very essential reasons which make this country ideal for the overgrowing activity of Sea-Kayaking.

Apart from the physical exercise, Sea-kayaking offers a unique way of approaching and exploring coastlines of exceptional beauty. The versatility of movement which the kayak offers, as well as the completely different prospective of visual approach to the coastal morphology, together, introduce you to an entirely unknown (to the beginners), but yet a splendid world! The game along the line where the water and land meet, is so pleasantly endless!!

The sea-kayaks themselves are specially designed for beginners and experienced, giving great possibilities to the user for covering long distances. They are safe, stable, straight liners and exceptionally fast. They have waterproof compartments and luggage elastic nets for carrying equipment and supplies, something that gives great self sufficiency, especially when we talk about long trips.

They can be equipped with pedaled rudders for keeping an easier straight direction while paddling. This is very useful and relaxing especially for beginners and when in long routes.  They can be one or two – seater kayaks, the first for the more experienced and the second ideal for the complete beginners.

Technically speaking, these vessels are a very important and well designed piece of equipment, which gives you a unique autonomy, versatility and ease, while exploring and approaching isolated and extremely nice places, like the one where the Veneton caves are, one of our best one-day Sea-Kayaking routes.

Once you have tried it you will never forget this wonderful experience!


Where do we meet for the Sea-Kayaking routes?

For the route “Mt. Kissavos coastline” the meeting place is Stomio and for the route “From the river to the sea” the meeting place is Paleopyrgos.

As for the “Pileas / Veneto caves” route, we meet in Veneto in the very north-east Mt. Pelion.

When is the best time to do it?

Sea-Kayaking is quite a sensitive activity in relation to the sea / weather conditions. Especially for the Veneto sea caves route, as it is open sea, we need very calm water in order to fully enjoy the cave exploration and the element of favorable weather conditions becomes much more important for complete beginners. In our experience, the best period for sea kayaking is in the autumn, winter, spring, and early summer before the “meltemia” winds begin, a very characteristic weather element of the Aegean Sea. Never the less, even during the meltemia period (mainly July and August), we may have some wind breaks. During the above periods of time, we watch the weather very closely and we are in position to know the exact conditions per area, up to six days before. You only have to “put your name down” on the list of interest for this activity and we will inform you as soon as we have the right weather for it.
