This week is about developing and working on your kayak skills in a beautiful small island in the Ionian sea, Ithaca. If you want to fast track your experience, knowledge, skills and increase your confidence, then this course is for you! There will be plenty of opportunity to learn plenty of skills from basic boat handling to rolling.
Explora has teamed up with Patrick Moore from OneMoore
Adventure to bring this unique paddling week to the 2017 kayaking calendar.
Five days of paddling around Ithaca, the highlights of the Ithacan coast in daily outings with 6 nights B&B in individual rooms.
You will learn basic skills and boat handling and if you would like to progress to more complex techniques, we specialise in coaching how to roll a sea kayak. This small, unspoilt island has a unique and spectacular coastline.
Each morning we meet at a cafe at 9.00am for breakfast and to make a plan for the day, go over individuals’ goals and discuss our learning objectives. We will put those into practice during the day, get on-going feedback and do an end-of-day review every evening. Each day will build on the experience of the previous and there will be plenty of opportunity to practice those skills that require development.
Departure is at 10.30am and return is around 4:00pm. Each day will involve 3-4 hours paddling/coaching with 2-3 generous stops, for skills practice, snorkelling or swimming, or just lying on the beach.
In the evenings, after a hot shower, enjoy a drink in our cafe or take a stroll around the Village. Then dine out at one of the local restaurants, all within walking distance.
