Sea Kayaking in Greece
Sea Kayaking is an exciting activity which perfectly combines exercise with pleasure. With this water sport, you can work out and, simultaneously, discover hidden corners of indescribable beauty, which would be difficult, if not impossible, to reach otherwise. Usually, sea kayak tourist trips cover beautiful coastal paths or short distances from island to island. Do not be discouraged if you do not have previous experience. A few-hour-pre-course, in which you will get familiar with the boat and its equipment and will learn basic rowing techniques, is enough. So, if you feel like exploring, love the sea and seek the beneficial contact with nature, then, sea kayaking promises a unique and extraordinary (for most of us) experience!
Ideal destination for Sea Kayaking is Pelion. Great sightseeing, diving to remote beaches with gorgeous turquoise waters, natural water sources, and fairy sea caves are just some of the surprises which await you in this magical place! On the Centaurs’ mountain, there is the possibility of rowing in both sides of the Aegean Sea as well as on the side of Pagasitikos Gulf. One of the most popular boating routes is the route of Damoucharis-Fakistra (and back). Depending on your experience and your strengths, you can select intra-day or full day excursions. Seize the opportunity to visit the picturesque fishing village of Damoucharis, with its traditional stone houses and swim at the homonymous beach, with beautiful pebbles and massive rocks.
