Overview

The sea kayaking tour in Rhodes is the most eco-way to discover the hidden treasures of the East Coast.

It starts at Kathara beach in the south part of Faliraki bay.

Each participant with a disability will paddle in a double sea kayak with an experienced sea kayaking guide. A second guide will follow the route throughout the program.

After a small briefing, you will start paddling along the east coast, towards the south.

The route offers you the chance to discover two of the most popular bays of the island, Antony Quinn and Ladiko. While paddling, you can admire the rock formations and the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean.

You will also visit a sea cave known as a shelter of a seal called ''Katerina'' (named by the locals) before finishing your excursion with local mezedes and a cold drink at the starting point next to the beach.

This activity is addressed to paddlers with one arm/leg, people with no leg mobility, people with limited trunk control, and their caregivers.

When it comes to limited upper body mobility, we use a special paddle. The secret about the paddle is the hinged mount, which supports the weight of the paddle, reducing joint stress and creating a smaller range of motion. Using a gentle rotary movement of the forearms (much like pedaling a bicycle with your hands), you’ll glide through the water with minimal effort.
