3 Days Sea Kayaking Symi
Price from €450


During this one-of-kind adventure, you experience Greek island life from up close, swim in Symi’s crystal-clear blue waters, paddle in its secluded bays and visit places few have seen, let alone been to. This eco-friendly trip takes you to explore Symi, a small island located in the south of the Aegean Sea, 25 miles away from Rhodes, which has uniquely been declared an Archaeological Site in its entirety. The architecture of the houses in the traditional villages is famous due to its neoclassical style, and the Italian influence on the colours used to paint the houses – terracotta and ochre. All this adds up to a perfect panorama that looks just like a painting! All the houses in Symi are protected by Greek Law and the Ministry of Archaeology.

The nature on this island is also quite dramatic and unique. From its sharp limestone cliffs to its fertile valleys, Symi never fails to impress.

Arrival & Introductory Paddle

Let us introduce you to Symi – the most picturesque of the Dodecanese Islands.

From your first glimpse of this island to the last you will without a doubt find it hard to get enough of this beautifully unique island.

Our Sea Kayaking Tour starts straight away in Gyalos – right next where we have disembarked from the ferry not moments before. No need to worry about your personal belongings and luggage as everything will be automatically transferred to tonight’s accommodation.

We will first swim & snorkel in Agia Marina cove with its turqoise waters and also explore its miniature island.

Before arriving in Pedi village, we will paddle to St Nicolas Beach & enjoy a traditional meal in a family run local taverna. 

Then, we will paddle to Pedi Beach, and settle into our great rooms for the next 2 nights. 

Rest of the afternoon free to explore Pedi or Gyalos town.

Gyalos - Nimborios - Nimos

One of our highlights for today is St George Disalonas bay – an area only accessible by boat. The magnificent rock face behind the beach, completes its unique and breathtaking scenery. We indulge ourselves, swimming in its clear turquoise waters and top it all off with a delicious BBQ next to the chapel of St. George.

We will also explore Nanou Bay, where you will enjoy the great Symian hospitality & a fresh yummy meal next to the beach.

In the afternoon we paddle back to Pedi – a true paradise for those seeking peace and serenity! If you are interested in some evening exploration of Gyalo, Symi’s main town, it’s just a short walk away!

Οvernight stay in Pedi

Pedi - Nimos - Gyalos

An early breakfast is recommended today on last day of our Sea Kayaking Tour to make the most of the colours of the morning sky and the peace and quiet of Pedi beach. After deliciously refuelling we set off on our next kayaking session. Our destination is Nimos Island – a stone’s throw away from Symi!

Nimos is an uninhabited island and as a result has goats aplenty.

Today we enjoy our leisurely lunch, served in the courtyard of Panagia Ipakoi’s small church.

On the way back, we will have plenty of photo opportunities capturing the colorfoul houses of Nimporios & Gyalos town.

The tour will finish at the clock tower, in Gyalos town.
