What you'll do

The PORTO SELVAGGIO kayak trip is our most popular trip, also suitable for those who have never paddled. Along the way we will show you hidden caves and crevices, all to explore! After wearing the life jackets and adjusted the footrests of our kayaks, we will be ready to set off to the north skirting the beautiful S. Maria dell'Alto Tower. Here are the most beautiful caves of the route. If the sea allows us, we will enter the wonderful Green Lagoon cave! This trip is an exceptionally exciting and memorable trip down the coast which allows you to experience the transparent waters of the beach at the end of Porto Selvaggio Bay. You can take a walk in the pine forest to shelter from the heat, take pictures and immerse yourself in the cold waters of the spring. We will take advantage of the unique perspective from the sea and the proximity to the coast that only a kayak can offer to visit one of the most beautiful stretches of sea in the Ionian Salento! It will then follow the return to the base by taking a route that will show us everything that has been left out on the way. More info on "Santa Caterina Sea Kayak" website.

More tips

If you've never gone kayaking don't worry. I am a sea kayak instructor and before starting I always do a short introductory lesson to teach how to drive a kayak. Also consider that our kayaks are very stable and the trip path is relatively short.
