1. Navarino Bay: Sea Kayaking with Lunch
Sea kayaking in Navarino Bay offers you the experience of remoteness with a visit to the island of Sphacteria. You will explore beautiful rock formations and sea caves, relax on a hidden cove with a deserted beach and hopefully spot some migrant birds sea turtles or seals. Your trip begins from the marina of Pylos. Before departing, you will be briefed on trip details, kayak paddling techniques, and safety measures. Soon you will be paddling by the town of Pylos and the castle of Niokastro heading towards the Tsihli Baba, an imposing monolithic islet with an impressive rock arch formed at its northern tip. Weather permitting, you will circumnavigate the islet, visit a few of its sea caves and paddle through its tunnels and arches. Your next stop will be the one and only accessible from the sea beach of the island of Sphacteria. During your stop there will be enough time to swim, snorkel, sunbathe, rest and enjoy a picnic with freshly baked bread organic, garden-grown fruits and vegetables, homemade olive oil, and cheese. Once the lunch stop is over you will paddle back to the starting point to end an adventurous day spent in the tranquility of the Navarino Bay.
