Sea kayak tours execution, as a sea sport activity, depends on weather conditions. Sometimes, the weather forecast is clear about the predictions of the following days and sometimes it’s a last second call!
We will be in contact informing you about the possibility of an execution or cancellation of your tour and discuss the reschedule options depending on your program. Our first priority is safety. Weather prediction is a provided tool on our website and we will be in contact with you with details and weather forecast regarding your tour!
After your reservation, we will send to you (by e-mail) a form for you to complete with additional information we will need regarding all the participants of your reservation.
We will send you also (by e-mail) all the information you will need about starting point, time, what you must bring with you ect.. We will be in contact for any changes due to weather conditions on the day of your tour.
Since Sit-in kayaks are equipment with specific standards, the participants in the tours should also meet certain conditions regarding their height, weight and physical condition. Our aim above all is for the participants to enjoy the kayak tours and get as little tired as possible!

Is sea kayak dangerous?
Sea is always an element that needs to be respected and be careful with. Our tours will take place mainly in a protected bay, in good weather conditions, with no wind or waves, or with very small wind and wave level. Weather predictions are always our tool for a safe and enjoyable kayak experience.
But in the rarest case of a sudden change of weather conditions that was out of forecast predictions, many sea shores are available during our tour, so if weather becomes challenging, we will head in the nearest beach and free transport will be arranged from there to Kissamos town.
What’s the difficulty level of each Kayak Tour?
For our shorter tours (morning tour and sunset tour) the difficulty level is fairly easy. The paddling time will be around 2,5 hours and for someone with a basic fitness level, it’s a piece of cake!
For our bigger expedition tour, the paddling time is around 5 hours with stops for rest and snacks in between. It’s a medium level tour but all the effort is rewarded by the experience! Also Kayak Sails can make the effort a bit easier if the wind is willing to assist us at the day of our tour! It requires a fitness level of basic+ and it’s a true expedition for the seekers of a small adventure.
We have chosen the best fitted equipment so paddling is as easy as it can get! Of course, this activity is more orientated for more active people. It’s required, as mentioned previously, for the participants to have a minimum basic fitness level in order to join us!
Due to this body afford in order to explore the sea, paddling gives a nice workout and adds so much to the total experience. As we say, if you think you will like it, you will love it!!!
Can we just rent a kayak and equipment from you?
No. As a tourism agency, we can only provide tours with guidance. If you want to rent a kayak, there is a Seaports rental company in Mavros Molos beach from where you can rent a sit on top kayak for a short-range paddle.
