Experience the Venetian heritage and charming coastal landscapes of Chania on a five-hour, fully guided kayak tour that takes you through picturesque Chania Bay and includes a picnic lunch in nearby Tabakaria village. A 20-minute bus ride from Souda brings you to Chania, the second-largest city on the island of Crete known best for its old Venetian harbor. Here you’ll meet a professional guide who will deliver a safety briefing before boarding your two-person kayak. Then head out on an unforgettable paddling adventure off the northern coast of Crete across crystalline blue waters lined with golden beaches and forest-topped mountainsides. From the water you’ll see the city’s crumbling 16th-century Venetian forts, as well as a skyline teeming with Neo-classical mansions, ornate church steeples and well-preserved old town buildings. Stop ashore in Tabakaria, a rocky outpost with a collection of early 19th-century leather tanneries. Explore narrow, steep streets lined with tile-roofed stone houses before relaxing seaside with a traditional Greek picnic — fruit, local cheese and Cretan sweet cheese pastries are on the day’s menu. Soak in the Aegean splendors of Chania while paddling your kayak back to dry land, before returning by coach to your ship.
