Includes bed, breakfast, picnic lunch & guided sea kayak trip

STARts 25th July 2018

 

 

Sea kayaking in Greece - for beginner and experienced paddlers.

We have created this option to give you the flexibility to take a paddling break whenever you like and for how many days you like. With this option you can enjoy a sea kayaking holiday on the dates that suit you. We will get you a bed in the island and take you out kayaking every day to practice skills, enjoy the environment and relax in this gorgeous environment.

Depending on the time of year and how many other people there are, you may join a group or be taken out by yourself. The basic package consists of bunk rooms in the village of Vathi. If you prefer a self-catering room, hotel or boutique accommodation, just let us know and we will tailor you a vacation to your requirements.

This is how it works - You will pay for your first night and a fee per day. So, a 4 day break with 3 days paddling staying in a bunk bed starts at £375.

The package includes:

  • Bunk bed
  • Kayak & kayaking equipment
  • Guide/Coach
  • Breakfast
  • Picnic lunch
  • Transfers with boats in Ithaca when applicable

If you would like to have a kayaking free day or are coming with a non-kayaking partner or friend, there are lots of other activities which we can also provide such as diving, jeep safaris, island and historical tours, motor boat hire and hikes.

Ithaca is located next to the island of Kefalonia which has an international airport. From there, you will need to make your way to the port of Sami, take the ferry to Ithaca and then there is a short taxi journey to Vathi where you will be based. We can do all the taxi bookings for you and you can buy your ferry ticket in Sami. It is really easy and quick. If there are other visitors, we will group you to keep your transfer costs down.

paddle 4 change:

As part of our program you can join us in picking plastic from the sea and the beaches. We can give you a bag and will document your findings when we came back to base. In some days, we may organise beach clean ups. We document what we find with the aim to reduce the use of those objects in the island. An example of this are plastic drinking straws. Our aim is to remove as much plastic from the environment as we can from our kayaks and if we can change attitudes towards the use of certain materials, even better.
