We did the Intro Stand Up Paddle Boarding tour, and it was a blast! Our guide was the best - he was an excellent teacher and gave us confidence in our skill. We got to see some beautiful sites of the Red Beach and White Beach, and he gave us so much history and information about the island. The private cove where we stopped for snacks was beautiful, and he helped us climb a cliff! He took a lot of photos of the trip and sent them to us afterwards, which was awesome! Highly recommend!

We did the South Discovery day tour with Marco and Adonis and had an absolute blast! The team is dedicated to the safety of all participants and the equipment is high quality and well maintained. We were picked up from and returned to our accommodations in Oia (included in the tour price). The kayak route is incredibly scenic passing by many small beaches and steep cliffs..and our guides were like a comedy duo, lots of fun commentary and interesting tales of the region.

We stopped off at a small rocky beach for a homemade picnic lunch of delicious sandwiches and other finger foods made by Adonis' mom.

The day was incredibly fun and memorable, not to mention, the guides even took pictures for the group and sen the photo file within a few days. An unforgettable afternoon out on the Aegean and a sublime and scenic paddle.

Be sure to bring lots of water and sunscreen. You are out for 4-5 hours total. The staff provides hats and dry bags. I would also highly recommend to bring water shoes with stiff soles, as the beaches are very rocky.

A++++ day. Thanks Santorini Sea Kayak!

My boyfriend and I did the South east discovery tour with Santorini Sea Kayak in September 2017.

All equipment needed for kayaking was provided and was in good condition - a sea kayak with a pedal controlled rudder, paddles, vests, drybag and even a hat for those who didn't had their own. However, don't forget to bring enough water (at least 1liter per person) and use some sunscreen.

The instructions on how to navigate the kayak were provided in the beginning and everything was explained clearly and patiently.

The guides - Adonis & George were very amusing, but also thorough and caring. One girl from our group had a headache and felt sick during the tour. They put all the effort to make her feel better - gave her a painkiller and escorted her to the closest beach to have rest.

The scenery of Red beach and White beach was very nice and many photos were taken during the trip. Those were later sent to our e-mails.

There was also a big and tasty snack offered during our stop at white beach. They prepared even extra sandwiches for a guy with diary-free diet. What a nice gesture!

To my taste, 80 euro is way too much for a half day tour, but when you take into account how expensive Santorini island is, it's probably an adequate price. Unfortunately, they do not accept credit cards, so you have to pay 30 euro in advance with paypal and then 50 euro in cash.

Apart from the equipment and the food, the price included also a pick up and drop off. I was a bit nervous, though, after I booked the tour, because I expected to get some confirmation or some details about the exact place and time where we should wait for the pick up. Nothing like that came, so I wrote an e-mail and was assured that the info will come to my e-mail not earlier than one day ahead. It eventually really did, so no need to worry.

In my opinion, the tour is awesome for beginners, but little too short for enthusiastic or more experienced paddlers. To sum this up, however, the crew was amazing, the views were nice, the food was tasty and it was overall a pleasant and enjoyable experience.

We absolutely loved our Sea Kayak adventure! There was a slight problem with the booking and the team really made an effort to rectify it as soon as possible and we were none the wiser.
Our tour guide George was funny and patient and told all sorts of entertaining and very true historical stories about the landmarks we saw along the way.
Lunch was delish and they easily catered for our veggie needs.

We had a great time and would highly recommend George the rest of the crew! :)
