Includes equipment
Up to 9 people
Hosted in Italian, English

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! More info on "Santa Caterina Sea Kayak" website.
N.B.
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.

My name is Marco Garbetta and I’m FICK 2nd level sea kayak instructor. I have made very long and demanding kayak trips; among these the Corse and the Sardinia solo kayak tours, the Balearics and the Ionian archipelago of Greece tours. I know the sea very well and have the experience to lead a group safely. I am also a kayak tour guide and expert connoisseur of the Puglia's coasts. The trips are led by me or by my close collaborators. More information on the "Santa Caterina Sea Kayak" website.

È stata un’esperienza unica. Marco è stato bravissimo ad insegnarci le basi prima di partire e ci siamo sentite sicure per tutto il percorso. Le grotte sono state molto suggestive e ritornare al piccolo porto con il tramonto. Una delle esperienze migliori della vacanza. Marco è sicuramente riuscito a trasmetterci la sua passione per questo sport!

È stata una bellissima esperienza, che ripeteremo sicuramente, Marco ci ha insegnato le giuste basi di come si pagaia e per essere stata la nostra prima volta ci siamo sentiti molto sicuri e tranquilli seguendo lui durante il tragitto. La consigliamo come escursione alternativa! Grazie Alessia e Antonio

Esperienza unica da fare per forza, per chi ama il mare. Un po faticoso per chi non è abituato ma ne vale la pena.

Siamo usciti nonostante il mare un leggermente mosso e, grazie alla guida attenta di Marco, è stata un'esperienza indimenticabile! Mi sono veramente divertita, consiglio vivamente l'esperienza anche ai principianti assoluti come me.

Die Kajak Tour mit Marco war ein einmaliges Erlebnis. Dank der ausführlichen Einführung auf italienisch und englisch ist die Tour auch gut für Einsteiger geeignet. Marco gab sich viel Mühe uns die Höhlen zu zeigen und ging auf jeden Teilnehmer individuell ein. Obwohl die Tour auf 2,5h angesetzt war, waren wir insgesamt fast 3,5h unterwegs. Während der Tour machte Marco einige Fotos und schickte uns diese im Nachgang kostenlos zu. Wir können die Tour als absolutes Highlight nur weiterempfehlen.
