EXPERIENCE NEEDED LIMITED
The whole trip is about 80km. This equates to about 20km/day in 4 days.
You need to have some previous experience in sea kayaks and especially to be able to track the kayak in a straight line.
Participants without any experience are recommended to join a 2 days sea kayaking course (extra 150€ per person for 2 days) prior taking this trip.

CAMPING & FOOD
The expedition is self catering. Usually we each look after our own breakfast, lunch and snacks and prepare a group evening meal in turn.
We will buy 2 days worth of food and water at the beginning as there we will be able to restock during the route.
Meals in seaside towns, or beach side taverna's, are possible during the whole trip.  Usually we prepare our own breakfast & dinner and have lunch in a taverna.
During off season (late October to late April) we will need carry more supplies and wont be possible to eat in a taverna as all are closed.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE DATES
We will meet near the city of Heraklion between 8-9 am. You should arrive in Heraklion the day before. If you find a cheaper flight to the airport in Chania then the best will be to meet us direct to the starting point as from there is about an hour and 45 minutes by bus while from Heraklion about 3 hours. If you do travel from Heraklion and you need transfer that is provided for free. On the last day of the trip we will return back to Heraklion by our car and will be glad to drop you in the airport if your flight is on same date. Your flight needs to be late enough as we need about 3 hours to get there from the place that will finish our sea kayak trip. The best place to fly to is Heraklion airport as it is much easier from there to deal with transport. Exact meeting time will be determined depending the participants.

OUR SEA KAYAKS
We are a NDK centre thus having a wide range of Nigel Dennis kayaks plus boats from Valley, North Shore, P&H and a few from Tahe Marine.

ABOUT CAMPING EQUIPMENT
We can provide all the equipment for camping apart from sleeping bag for an extra cost. You can get a high quality 3 or 4 season tent for an extra 30€ for the whole duration of the trip. The price includes the mattress as well. Stove and gas canister are an extra 30€ in the price of the trip.

ABOUT YOUR SUITCASE
Ideally try to have all your stuff for the trip inside multiple and small dry bags and those inside a suitcase or any other rucksack. It is important to have your stuff in either rucksack or suitcase as usually we have very limited space inside the car and need to carry all passengers stuff in the roof rack with straps. The driver can store afterwards your suitcase or rucksack in our warehouse and bring it back to you once the trip finish. Of course if you are staying in a hotel prior and after the trip you can ask them to store your stuff there if you prefer.

IMPORTANT
July and August are very windy months and multi-day trips can be planned only if you are an experienced paddler (minimum British Canoeing Sea Leader Award - old 4* and above)
