Corsica, truly a sea kayak paradise
The island of beauty awaits you to reveal its most beautiful sides.
We offer an exceptional 7 days sea kayaking trip from Ajaccio to Porto Vecchio.
7 days in a small group of 6 people maximum supervised by a full certified sea kayak instructor.
Every night, we are accommodated aboard a 13 meters sailing catamaran which serves as a floating hotel and allows us to fully enjoy the trip.
Camping is prohibited in Corsica, the sailboat allows us a real itinerant stay in sea kayaking, every night we find it in a different place as we progress south.
And if weather conditions prevent us from sea kayaking, you will learn with our skipper the basics of sailing. You will have the opportunity to take the helm and participate in the maneuvers if you wish.
The catamaran Venezia 42 offers everything necessary for a comfortable life on board and a stay in an extraordinary setting.
4 double cabins, 2 single cabins, 2 bathrooms/toilets.
A big bridge where we can put kayaks but also sunbathe and enjoy sunsets, watch the stars or just listen to the sound of the sea against the hull of the boat.
You will spend each night in the same room but in a different place.
With at each stopover on board, you will have the opportunity to swim before taking a good meal made of Corsican products and from organic farming.
Day 1: We will meet in the morning at the Port of Ajaccio where we will board the catamaran and head south along the Gulf. After arriving near the Isolella peninsula, we will embark on a sea kayaking adventure for about 20 kilometers until we reach the Anse de Cacao, dominated by its Genoese Tower. Day 2: A stunning day of sea kayaking awaits us, with the passage of "Capu di Muru," the Bay of Cupabia and its Genoese tower, which we will visit during a hiking excursion. We will anchor at Porto Pollo for the night. Day 3: After crossing the Propriano Bay on board the catamaran during breakfast, we will embark on a sea kayaking adventure from Campomoro Bay. Our paddling strokes will take us along a rugged coastline dotted with granite boulders and small deserted coves, such as the Cala di Conca, whose hidden entrance between the rocks makes it almost invisible. We will pass the famous Cap de Senetosa and its lighthouse, then arrive at Cala Tivella where our catamaran awaits us for a paradisiacal anchorage. Day 4: Another day of paddling in dreamlike landscapes awaits us. After passing the beaches of Tralicetu and Argent, we will find ourselves dominated by the Roccapina Lion. Once again, the rugged coastline offers the perfect playground for our kayaks. Day 5: Our sea kayaking adventure takes us today to the foot of the Bonifacio cliffs. We will explore the famous caves, including the Dragoneto, pass by the King of Aragon's staircase, and then head to the Lavezzi archipelago to spend the night aboard the catamaran in the heart of this protected reserve where all bivouac is prohibited. Day 6: We will tour the Lavezzi Islands and the island of Cavalo before heading north towards Porto Vecchio. Day 7: Our last day of sea kayaking takes us to Porto Vecchio, the endpoint of our journey on the water. This charming fortified town is located on the southeast coast of the island and is filled with local shops, restaurants, and bars. After exploring the town and enjoying a delicious Corsican lunch, we will take a taxi back to Ajaccio in the late afternoon.
The steps of this kayak trip are about 25km or 5 hours of navigation. If you are tired it is always possible to finish a day on the catamaran.
