We meet in Kissamos and drive a short distance to Falassarna, on the West coast, where we'll launch the kayaks. In this experience we will explore the rugged West coast of Crete - using stable sit-on-top sea kayaks - discovering remote beaches, navigating through shallow rocks and admiring the rugged landscape. There are also various opportunities to jump in the water to explore under the surface with a snorkel & mask. You can expect to see fantastic scenery, clear blue waters and all sorts of sea creatures, while getting a great workout for your upper body. We can do this experience any morning during the summer months (May to October). If no availability is shown on your preferred day please send a message to inquire about booking.
I grew up in the UK and moved to Greece in 2008 with my family. I worked for a number of years in turtle conservation and always had a passion for the environment, nature and an active lifestyle. Together with my Italian husband Manu, we started a business - Fit in Crete - offering different active experiences, including hiking, swimming, e-biking, kayaking and cultural tours. We seek out hard-to-find places to be able to share these hidden gems with visitors. We both swim in the sea year round, and Manu is a qualified lifeguard and ex-competitive open water swimmer.

Depending on the weather and wind direction we will choose the best point to set off from. This may be any of the fantastic beaches along the west coast, such as Falassarna or Sfinari. We'll paddle along the coastline, which is full of awe inspiring rock features, cliffs, caves, small bays and inlets to explore.
