Chania SUP & Snorkeling Tour

2-hour small group family activity close to Chania 

Join this 2-hour small group family activity in the ideal spot for SUP in Crete regardless of your level. Marathi and Loutraki beaches’ crystal clear and calm waters close to Chania create the perfect environment for you to stand on your paddleboard! Paddle around the most crystal clear, turquoise waters and discover the amazing spots that not even the locals know, guided by our experienced SUP instructors. 

After an introductory course on the basic paddling techniques, how to stand up, turn and stop, we set course within the bay, explore the caves that lie hidden across the coastline, swim, take pictures, go snorkeling and enjoy what is considered to be the highlight of our guests’ vacations in Crete. We will provide you with all equipment (masks, snorkels) to safely enjoy snorkeling around our coastline and record all these unique memories with our action cameras. All footage will be sent to you as reminiscent of this unequaled experience.

There is absolutely no need for prior paddling experience, we make sure you feel confident and ready to go within the first few minutes! Our tour is specially designed to please all levels of paddlers, from first timers to pros.

While previous paddle boarding experience isn’t necessary and our instructors are certified in water rescue and first aid, participants should still know how to swim.

Dress according to the weather, preferably in clothing that’s comfortable to move in and can tolerate getting wet. A hat/cap and sunscreen are recommended on sunny days. A second change of clothes, that will be kept out of the water, within our premises, during the tour, is also recommended.
