Sea Kayaking near Red Beach
Bill_S, May 2024
Sea Kayaking along the Red and White beaches was excellent and the Aegean Sea was crystal blue clear. Guides Adonis and Nolan were excellent and made the trip great!
Fun little adventure :)
Sufia_S, May 2024
Great tour guides, safe, experienced and friendly tour of a beautiful part of the world. We'll worth a try! :)
Best way to see Santorini!
Kathleen_S, May 2024
Highly recommend taking this tour as the best way to see Santorini’s spectacular beaches and views. Our guide was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and skilled. We were lucky to go early in the season and only had one other couple in our group.
Fantastic experience, great guides
Aleks_S, Sep 2023
Guides were excellent. They were knowledgable, entertaining, professional and made the whole thing enjoyable. As well as seeing the sights along the coast we had a stop at the white beach (only accessible by water) and learnt about some of the history of the coastline.
A great adventure
Curt_J, Sep 2023
We enjoyed every minute of our time kayaking. The crew took great care of all of us. Friendly, helpful and funny! We didn't get to see their pet dragon but we heard him. A great adventure. Highly recommend!!
DO THIS TOUR!!! The best ever!!!!
Jennifer_H, Aug 2023
This was, hands-down, one of the best tours we’ve ever taken. Joe, our kayak and snorkeling guide was so much fun and showed us an absolutely incredible time. We kayaked out to water caves, got to snorkel off a secluded beach, do some cliff jumping, had a lovely dinner on the beach, and saw the most spectacular sunset from our kayaks.
Excellent tour
Richelle_D, Aug 2023
Our guide Joe, ensured everyone's safety, everyone was comfortable with activities. Had a picnic, snorkelers. The team arranged for transportation to/from Fira and ensured we made it back in time for our tender to the ship.
Beautiful and fun!
Roberta_R, Aug 2023
We had a wonderful experience! Adonis was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a very nice tour in this gorgeous place that is Santorini. He was there with us guiding and encouraging all the way! Very fun!

Thank you Roberta for your great review!! We wish you all the best!
Great excursion for outdoor enthusiasts
Angelo_V, Aug 2023
What a fantastic excursion! Our guides Joe and Jorge were informative and very entertaining. The increased winds of the day (20-25 mph) made it a little more challenging for paddling and snorkeling, but even so, it was not a difficult trip. Enjoyed our secluded area for a picnic of melon and delicious sandwiches made by Adonnis' yia yia. The views of the beaches were beautiful and Jorge took lots of pictures of us. Would definitely recommend.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you Angelo for all your kind words! We really enjoyed paddling with you!!
Stunning views- plus fun!
Pamela_S, Aug 2023
Stunning!! And so much fun! Joe and Jorge are the perfect guides! Adonis’ grandmothers sandwiches and snacks are such a perfect topping to the beautiful red sand beaches, cliff jumping, snorkeling and of course- kayaking! We had a blast! A highlight of our trip to Greece! Thank you- Pam and Alex

Thank you Phillip for your 5-star review!! It was our pleasure!!
More like sea hole in the wall
Ashley_H, Jun 2023
The guides were great but our time was changed at the last minute and where you are taken to snorkel there is nothing to see and the “sea caves” is really just one cave and I really wouldn’t call it a cave, it’s more of a shallow hole that the kayaks (3 at a time) paddle in for a few minutes then paddle backwards out. Luckily my son had a good time. He just wished there was more time to snorkel and of course wished there were things to see besides seaweed.
Best Santorini kayaking experience
Austin_G, Jun 2023
My wife and I had a blast on this kayak tour. It was a great way to get out of the tourist focused areas and see Santorini in a new way! Joe was a great tour guide who told us facts about the city but also had us laughing! We highly recommend this adventure!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Austin for your great review!! We also had a wonderful time!
Sun, fun, unforgettable
Maxine_U, Jun 2023
This was by far the best experience I’ve had so far here in Santorini. The staff were laid back but knowledgeable and helpful. Lots of laughs, good lunch, snorkeling, and swimming. Totally doable for all ages and fitness levels. Would definitely recommend this!!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Maxine for your review!! Wish you all the best!
Great excursion
Stephen_S, Jun 2023
Great staff. We rode the bus, walked to the ocean (short walk). The company can be seen to the right…just walk through the cafes and you are there. Very enjoyable.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Stephen for your 5-star review!!
Best kayak tour in Santorini!
Jackie_M, May 2023
Great experience all around! The tour guides were professional, knowledgeable, and lighthearted. We got to see parts of the island that we wouldn't have otherwise had the opportunity to see, and even spent time snorkeling and enjoying a light homemade lunch at white beach (?). Highly recommend!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you so much for your kind words! We really appreciate it!
Sure to see Mermaids and Mermen while on the sea!
Stacy_R, May 2023
Exceeded my expectations! Was a lot of fun and the tour guides are very knowledgeable about the history in Santorini! Must do activity while visiting Santorini!

Kayaking in Santorini
hylton_p, Aug 2022
We were picked up from the cruise port at the top of the cable car by a driver and taken to the beach. We got a short introduction and went on the way
Scammed in Santorini!
Susan_S, Aug 2022
Scammed!! Tour company changed time of tour without notification so that we were unable to go. They refused refund despite making the change. They were also rude and belligerent on the phone with me. To make matters worse they were supposed to provide transportation back to port and we were stuck finding our own way back.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Susan, Thank you for taking the time to write not one, not two but three negative reviews for our company. So let's make things clear. Initially we messaged to inform you a day before, that your scheduled tour would start half an hour late, and you replied us about how excited you are for it. Let's note here that your reservation did not include transfer service. Then, the night before your paddling activity, in your next message you asked us about the best possible way to reach our base and we reverted with three possible alternatives. At this point, we understood you were coming off a cruise ship and asked you to confirm and let us know the departure time of the last tender to your boat, wanting to make sure there was enough time for you to board safely after the trip. Our sunset tour naturally depends on sunset and on said date would end at 20:15-20:20 Last possible tender for your cruise ship was at 21:00. This meant that practically there wasn't enough time for you to make it since you had to depart our base, drive to Fira walk and then take the cable car to the tender. So we immediately called to inform you. And despite our good will and intentions you were very rude and aggresive to us and then went on to threaten us with negative reviews unless, you were provided a full refund. All our messages are on record and available since they went through the online booking platform. Given our good will and our desire to help and assist our guests we find this kind of behavior unacceptable. Regards, Adonis Santorini Sea Kayak Crew
