What to expect
  • Our trip starts at Divari beach. Your guide will brief you on paddling techniques, safety measures, and equipment. Soon we shall hop on our kayaks for a trip around the Navarino bay like never before. We start paddling overlooking the town of Pylos and the Niokastro fort. Heading towards the imposing monolithic islet located at the south side of the bay, we visit the impressive natural stone arch. The islet is also a place of nesting and resting place for many species of birds. Weather permitting, we can circumnavigate it and visit a few of its sea caves, tunnels and arches. Our next stop is the unhabituated island of Sphacteria. Here, we jump out of our kayaks, stretch our legs and walk to the island’s viewpoint for taking pictures of an idyllic landscape and for story-telling. After some kayaking we shall make a stop at a secluded beach for swimming and snorkeling, and why not some cliff diving for those who feel more adventurous. Here we shall also taste our homemade picnic of local delicacies and relax under the sun. After this energy pumped stop, we will paddle back to the starting point to end an amazing day in the tranquility of the Navarino Bay.

George has been a wonderful and professional guide and we had lot of fun kayaking with him through the beautiful bay of Navarino!
We had the chance to discover this new activity in a wonderful and natural environment on a beautiful sunny day of November!
We are happy to have met George and discover a little bit more about the history of this famed place.
We would suggest Anyone to live this experience with Messinian tours.

Our group had a fabulous time with Trifona and the team. They gave us valuable lessons and guidance along the way, as well as interesting historical info. Trip was very manageable for our large, mostly novice group. Hope to do
it again sometime!

We enjoyed the trip wonderfully, even though it all started by almost missing it. We did not manage to get to the meeting point in time, but our guide Fotis was very helpful and patiently explained to us by mobile phone how to join the group and everything turned out well. After a short useful as well as funny instruction, we got into a kayak and set off. The first stop at the wooden church was spiced up by our guide with the story of the Battle of Navarina Bay, and at the second stop, in addition to swimming in the turquoise waters of the cove, we also received good refreshments. Our guide was nice and warmhearted and we also got some good tips for next days of our trip around the Peloponnese. Highly recommended.

Although I am not a huge fan of the sea and I didn't have much experience with kayaking before, I really enjoyed this excursion. The team leader explained everything to us before we started, and during the trip he was always making sure we were safe and enjoying the experience. We saw many beautiful places in the area, which only locals know and learned a lot about the history of the place. I would recommend it to everyone!!!

That was our first visit to the area and as we travelled together with children (16 and 10 y.o.) we were looking for some activities that would allow us to explore the area. And Explore Messinia will definitely help you to find out a lot about the place and combine physical activities and some historical sightseeing. That`s a fantastic combination for family vacation. For us it was a first experience in kayaking but we`ll surely repeat it with Explore Messinia next time. Both of our guides two Georges did everything that everyone in the group would have fun and get a maximal of positive emotions from the adventure! Very motivating and patient, sharing interesting historical facts and handling all logistics issues - that`s all about Georges. If you are not far from Navarino, please use this chance and try kayaking! Fun and pleasure guaranteed:)
