Kardamyli and Stoupa two villages in the Mani nestled between the blue waters of the Messinian Gulf and Mount Taygetos creating one of the prettiest settings in the Peloponnese. Sea kayaking here is indeed one of our most popular tours offering an inch by inch exploration of the rich in images and diversity environment. The lacy coastline of the Mani. We paddle in warm crystal-clear waters, exploring hidden coves and impressive rock formations. We visit sea caves and discover idyllic beaches sprouted along the shoreline.

Our trip starts  right in St. Johns Fishing Harbor. Before departure, your guide will brief you on trip details, kayak paddling techniques, and safety measures. Soon we will be exploring the coast at a relaxed paddling pace and your guides will reveal you some of the secrets of the area. Each little cove hides a special surprise such as hidden sea caves, rock gardens, cliffs with spectacular formation, hidden sandy and pebble beaches. The perspective of the sea bed from your kayak is unique. You can see through the crystal-clear water the sea life and if you are lucky a sea turtle swimming under your kayak.

One of the top attractions of this trip is a visit to the Blue Cave. A spectacular natural phenomenon where sunlight passing through a crack in the cave reflects on the seafloor an aquamarine color. A swim into the cave is a must-do and a lifetime experience. On the way, we shall visit rock pyramids emerging from the sea with an option for those daring to try in cliff diving. Halfway we shall make a relaxing stop for swimming, snorkeling and to taste a homemade picnic of fresh local delicacies. After lunch we shall paddle back to the starting point to end a remarkable day at the coastline of Mani.

    it was nicely spent 1/2 a day. The course was well prepared and handled by guides. The program was interesting, stuff is knowledgable and very friendly. The tour pace was accurate, the cave visit and swimming inside was a great experience. Thank you all who made it happen!

    This sea kayaking trip was the highlight of our three weeks in Greece. The guide, George, was fun and adventurous and supportive. Plus we learned a lot from him about the history of the region. Swimming in the hidden cave was otherworldly! No photo can do it justice.
