SUP & Snorkeling in Kalamata


Kalamata, home of the famous black olives and the southernmost city in Greece combines a unique coastline along with the imposing views of mount Taygetos. The city offers a diverse coastline with calm weather conditions, an ideal environment for Stand Up Padleboarding. Our SUP & Snorkeling trip here is a super fun experience suitable for everybody along the tranquil coast of Kalamata.

We meet at Archontiko beach, a few kilometers south of Kalamata. After a short introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding where you will learn the basic paddling techniques such as how to turn, how to stop, and stand up until you become confident on your board, we are ready to go. Starting at a slow pace, we shall practice our skills, stop occasionally to enjoy the beautiful landscape, and take pictures. The view from a Paddleboard is unique, giving the paddler a different perception of the water. It is very often happening to see fish and sea turtles swimming below the surface. In addition, the view from on top of the water is equally impressive. The beauty of the diverse coastline is stunning offering endless spots in hidden coves to swim and play around. We take a break at the beach we like for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling. The warm sea and the crystal clear waters are making snorkeling here a must-do and enjoyable activity. A delicious picnic is also scheduled during our relaxing time, sourced from farm-fresh, local producers carefully prepared by your guide.
