The Agia Galini sea kayak trip is suitable for both paddlers at or near the start of they’re kayaking career and for those looking for more advanced challenge when the wind pick up.

We journey in some of Crete’s most famous and historic marine areas in the best sea kayaks available in Crete.
We use Valley, P&H and North Shore kayaks and built to the highest standards using latest technology along with carbon/glass paddles.
The scenery is outstanding with one of the best caves in Crete, amazing remote beaches and lots of rocks to play with some awesome caves. Highly recommended.

Notes

Please bear in mind that the itinerary can be altered for numerous reasons beyond our control (e.g. harsh weather) to ensure the safety and the well being of the group. The final selection is left up to the guide. Temperature during summer months (June - early September) are between 30oC - 45oC. During the winter temperature might dropped down to 8-10oC.

This is a water sport and you will get a little wet while getting in and out of the kayak.

  • Something to drink. Water works great, try to have 1.5lt with you if possible on small bottles.
  • Lunch - We will stop for lunch during the trip.
  • Shoes you do not mind getting soaked as you will get your feet wet. Ideally a light neopren shoe. If you don't have any we can supply you without extra cost.
  • Board shorts or long synthetic pants work well for your lower body.
  • Layers work well for the upper half and to keep you protected from the sun in the summer or from the cold in the winter.
  • Bring a hat; it work great to keep the sun out of your eyes or the rain off your head.
  • Sunscreen; even if the sun is not shining, UV rays get reflected from the water and will burn you.
  • Sunglasses
  • A camera or binoculars; We will provide a dry bag to keep them safe and dry.
  • If you have allergies that require the use of an EPI Pen - Bring It!
  • A beach towel and camera are optional

Most of the times we meet in the marina of Agia Galini. If we change the starting point due to weather you will be emailed prior the trip.
