We offer a full kayak hire and outfitting service including all camping and kayak equipment. You can turn up with an airport, carry on bag and we can supply everything else you need. 

 

REQUIREMENTS

If you wish to hire a sea kayak then you need to have a level of competence that is equivalent to British Canoeing 4* (although the actual qualification isn't needed). We do not hire out sea kayaks to complete beginners or inexperienced paddlers unless paddling with someone competent who is taking responsibility for their safety. You must assure us of your personal competence and inform us where you intend using the kayak.
If you don't hold any certification (like 4* from BCU) you need to be very comfortable paddling in force 4, sea state 4 as this is common in most of the places around Crete. 
Hirers are fully responsible for the kayak and equipment throughout the hire period and must ensure that they are personally insured for any injuries. Any loss or damage to any of our equipment must be paid for in full at the end of hire period.

Strong winds can come up suddenly in the Libyan sea as well in the north part of Crete and blow hard for days.
