Sailing / Kite trips

The sailing kite trips are taking place to the West coast of  Greece from Lefkada all the way down south to Cape Drepano and vise versa. This area has nice moderate winds (steady thermals) throughout the whole summer and many spots (more than 7) on the way. We will find secret spots, amazing lagoons, crystal clear waters and some downwinds with the wind on our favour and always according to your skills. The route always depend on the forecast at the time of your arrival and your preferences. During the day we will search for the perfect conditions for you to kite and then we are going to stay overnight to small peaceful bays or reach a harbour for some night action according to the route.

The 2 most convenient airports for this trips is Aktion or Araxos (both international airports) with charter flights during the summer. Of course there is option of Athens international airport, but from there is a 2 hour drive to reach Patra (railway from the airport to Patra also) or 4 hours to reach Lefkada. We can arrange all your transportations abone request.

The choice of the Ionian sea for our sailing kite trips, is made upon 10 years of experience on sailing kite trips in Greece. The other side of Greece, the Aegean sea is most of the times really rough, since the ‘meltemi’, the strong north wind is blowing hard during the summer (6-7BF) every day. So, with this kind of weather we can not set sails for too many islands during the trip unless you are experienced sailors..@! Moreover the Aegean sea don’t have as many protected areas(flat,choppy spots),as the Ionian sea has, so if your trip is kiteboarding oriented the west coast is the place you have to be. The Aegean sailing kite trips are more island hopping and some kite action weather permitted. Anyhow we can customise your trip according to your needs.

If you are beginners we can arrange your lessons onboard, with an IKO certified instructor being with you at all times, guiding you to this amazing sport. On the other hand, if you are intermediate or experts you can rent some equipment from us or have a kite guide/rescue onboard who is going to help you out throughout your trip.
