Sea kayaking in Kekova suspended?

Hi, we are keen to do the sea kayaking trip around the Kekova ruins. We tried a company based in Kalkan who say that these trips are now all suspended because of a dispute. Some Kas based companies are still advertising them. Does anyone know more about this? We will have a hire car so do not necessarily need transport. Any advice on this dispute situation welcome or indeed if we can simply rent sea kayaks and see the ruins by ourselves.

Hi, we were there early July. We were told it was not possible as the coastguard would not allow it at that time. The problem seemed to be that a new permit was introduced that the kayak companies had to apply for in advance and not enough notice was given , so they could not get the permits. It is possible that they can do it now though so worth checking with one of the tour companies eg Brave Tours or similar.

We have just come back from two weeks in Kas [on Monday 1st Sept]. My family booked kayaking at Kekova through Xanthos Travel in Kas. They were picked up from our villa on the peninsula at 6.45 am and driven by minibus to Kekova. They had a full day trip with lunch and some free time on Simena. They had a great time and returned at around 4pm. I think it worked out at around £20-£25 each. Great value and lots of fun. The oldest in the group was 71 and the youngest 10. It was also only a small group of around 10 people.
