Corfu Sea Kayak
Sea Kayaking Excursions  in Corfu, Greece


Sea Kayaking tours along the north-west coast of Corfu

Your day trip will be led by a BC (British Canoe) qualified kayak instructor. We provide all the sit in kayaking equipment you will need (paddles, buoyancy aids, spray decks helmets when required, etc) leaving you to chill out and enjoy the breathtaking scenery we pass along the way. The exact details of each trip are finalised the previous day, taking into consideration local weather forecasts, the general ability of the group, your preferences and the time of year. In our briefing the day before your trip we cover all safety aspects, your contact details while on the water with us, health issues, what to wear, what to bring with you, and what experience you may have  We always have transport on hand should you need to be taken back to base. A moderate level of fitness is required - distances paddled are between 8km and 10km. We are always aware of local weather conditions. Although generally good, winds can be strong and our plans can sometimes change as a result.

As well as day trips, we offer tuition for beginners. Training takes place in the shallow (Blue Flag) bay at San Stefanos and lessons are based around understanding the movements of the kayak and learning how how the paddle, boat, and water interact, as well as being taught the key safety and rescue skills required to safely paddle in a sheltered sea environment.

Tour One – Peroulades and Sidari
Depart - 09.30 / Return 17.30
Level – Intermediate (BC 1 star or above needed)

We set out east from San Stefanos through shallow waters. There are great views looking back towards the resort. Along the way we pass impressive limestone cliffs before arriving at a cove with a small beach where we can pull in for a swim. Our next stop is Peroulades where we walk up to the Sunset Taverna for coffee as we admire the stunning vistas of the north-western tip of Corfu. The cliffs here plunge into the sea - a sight which can be enjoyed from an overhanging viewing platform. We move on around the corner to Sidari’s rock formations – a kayaker's dream. You can simply paddle around them or go rock hopping, swimming, or snorkelling. We then pull in to Sidari’s main beach for lunch, followed by time to look round the resort. Our return is a gentle paddle with stops for swimming.

Paddling along this stunning coast with great cave formations, natural rock arches, rock gardens and  coves, we'll stop for a relaxed lunch, swim and snorkel.

Fishing boats and yachts bob lazily in the circular harbour, ringed by whitewashed cottages and tavernas where the relaxed atmosphere of a timeless fishing village prevails. We paddle for a while, exploring the area's coves and hanging gardens, towards Kouloura (above), another quiet little fishing village - probably one of the most photographed places on the island and best seen from the water. We pull in and explore this stunning location which looks across the narrow channel to mountainous Albania. We have the option of a snack in the harbourside taverna before paddling back and stopping for lunch and some amazing snorkelling in one of small bays we pass along the way.

Kassiopi's horseshoe-shaped harbour is still home to local fishermen. It is fringed with a number of authentic Greek restaurants and chill-out bars.
