Day trips

Sea kayaking is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty, diversity and sheer magnificence of the Kefalonian coastline.
It is an activity that is relaxing, low stress and suitable for all ages.
Our equipment, international experience, local knowledge combined with our passion for the island and our activities, will ensure that your adventure with us will be an unforgettable experience.
We look forward to introducing you to the Element of Ionion Water!
  
We cater for all levels of happy paddlers – Novice to Expedition!
Fiskardo – Ithaki (Round Trip)
 
Depending on weather conditions and group experience this trip will either be a close coastline paddle out of Fiskardo and then loop back or a short crossing to Ithaki and back – Fiskardo -“The St Tropez of Kefalonia” offers a very different feel and experience, most of the buildings are pre the -1953 earthquake, cafes are neatly organized for the modern traveller, offering old world fishing village charm alongside a modern and popular Ionian sailing destination – we paddle along a diverse green and jagged limestone coastline with small bays and white rock beaches.
Distance on this trip can be adjusted from 6 – 15km and time (6-8 hours) depends on route taken, distance chosen and the time needed for drinking your Greek coffee, have a walk along the waterfront and browse in the souvenir shops.

Skala – Poros

Although we leave from one of the busiest tourist beaches on the island, your morning soon turns into a quite and beautiful paddle along a jagged limestone coastline with hotels and villas peering at you through the cracks, as you pass them on route to one of the islands “main” ferry port towns - Poros.

Combo Trip

Agia Pelagia Mariner – Spartia Beach
 
We paddle from the small harbor in the morning, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the long sandy beaches, “monk seal” cave and the limestone cliffs, a paddle to Dias Island – adds a “small open sea crossing” enhancing the adventure.
On arrival at Dias we exit and tie kayaks together, a short swim and a walk up the stairs to the “church on the rock - Panayia Vlahernon” gives us amazing views of the island which we use as a photo opportunity and prepare for the next phase of our adventure.
A safety briefing and equipment check gets us ready for the “abseil” from the lonely island down into the welcoming water below and while waiting for the group you can enjoy a swim or do some cliff jumping into the crystal clear waters below.
After paddling back from Dias we continue along the coastline doing some rock hopping, while enjoying the awesome views of Mount Ainos from the sea. We make another stop at the “crystal beach” to view the crystal chunks set in the limestone cliffs.
Our final stop is for a healthy well-deserved lunch and a refreshing beverage at one of the small “local” beaches of Spartia village.
