Sounio sea kayaking is perfect for those who want to see a different side of the landscape with just the right balance of a little bit of effort and a lot of peace and tranquility. Being in the sea is such a space is wonderful. This is especially true when you have a guide with you to make the experience easy. George (our guide) was epic. He clearly loves what he does and knows his stuff in great depth. I would happily have stayed out on the water with him for several more hours.

George was our tour guide for this experience and he was fantastic. The kayaking was slightly challenging with the wind but not too hard. George let us know when to expect help or resistance from the wind. The area is absolutely beautiful. We had ample time to see the ruins and watch the sunset and then had an absolutely delicious dinner. Thank you so much for this wonderful activity!

Our guide George was excellent and ensured we had a wonderful day! All equipment was safe and clean according to government guidelines. You do not need any Kayaking experience before going on this trip as all is explained by a qualified guide. Dry bags can be provided on previous request and flip flops are fine for the activity. Sunset at Poseidon’s temple: priceless. Dinner was on the beach, almost with our feet in the water!
