SUP and Snorkeling Tour Blue Lagoon - Loutraki Bay
US$68.04
Overview
Explore the Cretan coastline from a standup paddleboard on this guided tour around beautiful Marathi Bay. After a short instruction and safety lesson, head out into the bay, exploring smaller islets, diving spots, and a small cave system along the way. Stop from time to time to snorkel with the marine life or catch your breath on the beach. This tour is good for all ages and experience levels, a great way to enjoy time with friends and family on the water.
What to Expect

Upon arrival at the beach, the instructor will go through the day's itinerary. The course starts with an introduction to Stand Up Paddling, a demonstration of proper technique, along with safety and rescue measures.

We paddle firstly inside the magnificent cove of Loutraki to increase confidence on the paddleboard. The tour includes several stops along the coastline, where we can swim, relax, sunbathe or snorkel. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Cretan coastline while standing on the water!

From Loutraki beach we paddle to Marathi bay, famous for its fish taverns and its sandy beach. For the more adventurous we paddle under the pier that separates the beach into two parts. Heading south from Marathi bay, we reach the islet of Palaiosouda, a very popular diving location. There's a small sandy beach on the west side of the islet where we can enjoy the sun and the warm waters and rest for a while before heading back to our base. While on the beach you can admire the White Mountains (Lefka Ori or Madares) standing tall in the mainland of the Cretan island, covered with snow even during the hot, summer months. If you are lucky, you may get the chance to paddle side by side with the sea turtle that loves hanging out in our bay.

It is an easy, idle tour specifically designed to satisfy all levels of paddlers, chosen by families, couples of all ages and groups of friends.

Fantastic first SUP experience :-)

My daughter and I tried out stand-up paddling for the first time - and we had a really great time. We were well guided by Stefanos and Tom and the weather and beautiful surroundings at Marathi beach made it a very good experience all together....More
