Sea Kayaking on Mani Peninsula


Explore Mani Peninsula's natural beauty by kayak, gliding through its warm, crystal-clear waters. This easy family sea kayaking excursion is a fun and active way to experience Mani. You'll paddle along the coast of Kardamili and Stoupa, which host some of the best scenery in the area. Enjoy views of hidden coves, sea caves, rock formations, and white-sand beaches.

You'll start in Kardamili, where you can get acquainted with your equipment. Then, your guide will teach you a few basic techniques before you practice in shallow water.
