Kayak Safaris

Explore the Mar Menor on a Kayak Safari; learn about area and it's wildlife.
We can take you on an excursion tailored to your fitness and ability.

Explore the Mar Menor

The lagoon of the Mar Menor has many islands and beaches, kayaks provide the ideal vehicle to explore as the water is very shallow in many areas. All of our safaris are private to your group and are scheduled on demand.  We run trips for families, corporate groups, couples or individuals; the maximum group size is 12 but groups of up to 16 can take part in combined activities.

The safari involves some instruction on the beach and then an excursion to a beach or one of the islands on the Mar Menor with a chance to go snorkelling and explore the wildlife.  More experienced kayakers can take a trip on to the Mediterranean, known here as the Mar Mayor.

Our Kayaks

We use "sit on" style kayaks which are suitable for those new to kayaking and also fun for those who have been before. We have a variety of single and double kayaks and encourage everyone to have a go in both types; the singles require more stamina while the doubles some level of teamwork and coordination!

The kayaks are very stable and comfortable and the double seaters are particularly suitable for parents with children or those who lack confidence.

"...just a short note to tell you how much fun we had on our kayak safari, both the children really enjoyed it and definitely want to try a longer trip next time. Your introduction to snorkelling was fantastic and on the back of you sharing your knowledge of where to find the different types of fish "

Safari Routes

Kayak Safaris normally run for between 2 to 4 hours; various destinations and itineraries are possible. The exact route of a Kayak Safari will be determined on the day depending on wind and weather conditions. The amount of time spent paddling and snorkelling is entirely up to you. We take all our trips at your pace!

We run most of our Kayak Safaris on the Mar Menor which is very safe, warm and shallow. Experienced kayakers can take a trip to various Mediterranean beaches or even the Calblanque National Park. The shorter safaris are suitable for children age 5 and above; children under the age of 16 should normally be accompanied by an adult however exceptions are possible.
