Paddleboarding holiday in Greece
Description of Paddleboarding holiday in Greece
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur centre carries out regular sea, beach and sea floor clean-ups. We use our paddleboards, kayaks and divers to contribute to the up-keep and health of the local environment. Some of the areas we will visit on our tours, are quite remote but open to the sea current and winter winds that bring debris and plastic from other areas. In order to help deal with this, we always carry means to pick up and take floating rubbish back with us and dispose of it responsibly once we are back on our base in Vathi.
We also support the conservation organisations that study the monk seal by providing diving services and fast motor boats to enable the scientist to visit remote island and explore caves.
We also work with the island council to address issues such as the use of plastics, the improvement of the water system to stop the need to use bottled water and many other issues that affect our beautiful environment.
PeopleWe are the outdoor centre of the island and we work very closely with our community to ensure that we all benefit from tourism and everyone understands the issues currently facing the sea environment. For example, early in the season, we take small groups of school children kayaking and enable them to their island from a view-point that maybe they haven't seen before.
We also work with local taxi drivers to help on the transfer of clients, local family hotels, the bakeries and restaurants. All our boats are serviced by local mechanics and our kayaking equipment is looked after by the local boat builder.
Additionally, we provide training opportunities for young people from the island and elsewhere. In November 2018, after the summer season, we organised a training period in the UK to increase the level of qualifications of our guides and coaches. The training was subsidised and delivered by an expert UK coach following guidelines from British Canoeing UK governing bodies.
