Sea Kayak Day Trip - Sfakia & Loutro Village. This is a lovely trip in one of the most protected areas in Crete, very close to the famous Samaria Gorge.

  • Small Group
  • Full Day
  • Sea Kayak

What a magical world we live in ... you will absolutely repeat it during our sea kayak trip in this unique part of lovely Crete.

Small secret beaches with crystal turquoise waters, excellent swimming and snorkeling, impressive sea caves, and magical Loutro Village ... last but not least, delicious lunch by the sea!

Previous experience is not required. The starting point is about an hour driving from the town of Chania and is suitable for those staying in west Crete (along with Kalyves trip) and or near Rethymno town.

Of course, anyone is welcome to join from any part of Crete but check first the driving distance (takes 2.5 hours from Heraklion).

The distance that we will paddle is about 15km and there will be plenty of time for swimming and snorkeling on remote beaches not accessible by cars.

Experienced paddlers are welcome to join; if all are experienced in the group we can extend the trip to cover an extra 6km.

All paddling equipment is provided for the trip plus of course the guide.

Loutro believed that this was the site of the ancient city of Finikas and was the port of ancient Anopolis. Later, it became the winter time port of the town of Sfakia, due to the fact that the bay and the small island in its entrance create a natural harbor where ships can be safe even in very bad weather conditions. Loutro is most likely the most protected bay for a kayak in Crete and is only access by kayak or any other boat plus of course by foot. There are no big hotels with swimming pools and no overcrowded streets, restaurants, beaches and also there are no cars!

Overview of Trip

There will be a short introduction to paddling for those that have no experience and afterward we will start paddling towards Loutro. On our way, we will make stops for both; swimming and snorkeling. All stops will be on different beaches.
There are sea caves and wonderful beaches for swimming and snorkeling along our way to the small village of Loutro where we will stop for lunch. You can either eat in a taverna or you can bring your own. The food in the village is excellent and there is a wide variety including many recipes for vegetarians.
Single or tandem (double) kayaks are available. People with no experience will be given a tandem kayak as those are easier to paddle. Experienced paddlers can get superb boats from Nigel Dennis, Valley, North Shore, and P&H.


80.00 Euros per person


All paddling equipment is provided for the trip plus of course the guide.


We start at 10 am and finish at 4-5 pm. If time changes for any reason you will be notified by email.


Transport is not available for this trip. You will need to meet us at our base in Ilingas beach in Sfakia Village.

Meeting Point

Check out this link for the exact meeting point, it is at Ilingas beach, just 2.5km west of Chora Sfakion. If you travel by bus let us know in advance and we will arrange a pickup. 

What to bring

If you don't want to have lunch in the taverna be sure you pack your lunch. Other than that you will need 1.5lt of water (ideally in small bottles), sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, swimsuit, lycra shirt, or any t-shirt ideally with UV protection. You will also need shoes that you do not mind getting soaked as you will get your feet wet. Ideally, a light neoprene shoe will work great. It is not required to wear shoes but they will help as the majority of the beaches are with small rocks.


Please bear in mind that the itinerary can be altered for numerous reasons beyond our control (e.g. harsh weather) to ensure the safety and the well-being of the group. The final selection is left up to the guide.
