Right in the heart of the Ionian Sea, Zakynthos is an ideal island for sea kayaking. Located between Kefalonia, Lefkas and Mainland Greece, it is protected from big swells and strong winds making it one of the most popular and safest sea kayaking destinations in the Mediterranean Sea.
The duration of our day-trips is approximately 4-5 hours. They include at least one break, giving you plenty of time to swim, snorkel or just rest. Paddling is at a relaxed pace, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
Our expeditions offer a great experience, suitable for all ages and level skills. Ideal for beginners with no previous knowledge, perfect for experienced kayakers as well.
"By far the best way to see the beauty and the nature of Zakynthos and thanks to Dimitris first class service its so easy to arrange - whenever I go to Zante now I simply email my dates and Dimitris will be in contact to let me know which tours he's got planned for which days, all transport is provided etc. and it's always the highlight of my holiday. It's also the only way I've ever seen turtles so if you want to see one - book a kayaking tour.
I've been on two kayaking tours now, one incorporating Turtle Island in May 2019 and one exploring the Keri Caves in August 2020 - both times with Sea Kayaking Zakynthos (I wouldn't trust anyone else to provide the same standards of safety and enjoyment).
Dimitris is a highly competent kayaking expert and a very good instructor, he has thousands of hours experience providing relaxed and enjoyable tours for people of all ages and all levels of ability - both tours I went on the entire group were either first-time kayakers or inexperienced kayakers and Dimitris was able to teach everyone in a very simple and easy way to be at ease in the kayaks and enjoy the tour from start to finish. Everyone felt safe and relaxed immediately and the pace is suitable for everyone - with plenty of relaxing stops to swim, take photos, snorkel (equipment provided), have a bite to eat, relax on the beach, break away from the group and chill out with your own party of friends if you want to before re-grouping and getting back in the kayaks to enjoy the next part of the tour. Being right on the water, it's also a good way to keep cool with a nice breeze as you glide along.
The kayaks provided are very stable and easy through the water and Dimitris has a lot of them so is able to take care to match the right people to the right kayak. Dry bags are provided so take your camera, your phone, some snacks etc.
The sea is very calm and flat around Zakynthos which makes it perfect for all abilities and I've felt entirely safe every time. That said, Dimitris is a true professional and puts the safety of his guests before anything else.
Sea Kayaking for me is a "must do" activity every time I visit Zakynthos and Sea Kayaking Zakynthos is the way to do it. I'll definitely be back for more. Dimitris is the perfect tour guide as well, very personable and takes the time to get to know his guests - he takes pride in showing you the beautiful place he knows - he doesn't make the tour a show about himself, which some tour guides tend to do."
