Sea kayaking trip to “The Island”

Family Experiences  | Themis

Get to know the picturesque village of Plaka and the famous island of Spinalonga with sea kayaking.

The experience begins either at the beach of Plaka, Agios Nikolaos. After getting to know each other, we’ll do a little conversation – introduction about the use of kayak.
Then, I will lead you to the blue – green waters of Plaka heading for the famous and historical island of Spinalonga to admire its beauty along the coast.
There, we will have the opportunity to swim either freely or with the help of a snorkel. Then we will continue rowing outside the bay of Tsifliki (Elounda), taking a break to rest at the beach of “Alikes”, enjoying a light traditional snack.
After a short exploration of the seabed, we will row back to where we set off, Plaka where we will taste Cretan traditional recipes next to the sea. This time we are crossing the canal near the coastline of the Vigli.
No previous experience is required on the sea kayak, as the route is easy. Moreover, children under the age of 4 years old, can follow you for free on this experience on your board.
The experience starts at 8:00 to avoid the hot afternoon sun and the total duration is about 4 hours. The snacks will include fruit and traditional flavors. All the necessary equipment will be provided by us, as well as the necessary instructions, so that experience will be remembered forever. Let’s enjoy it!
