Inspired by Odysseus, the mythical king of Ithaca and his famous travel adventures, we are pleased to offer a unique sea experience.
Odyssey Sea Kayak Club was established in 2013 and it is located on Ithaca, one of the seven main islands of the Ionian Sea. Ithaca is offering a vertical rocky coastline with beautiful little bays and pebble beaches, a venue ideal for sea kayaking.
An amazing island for sea kayaking right in the heart of the Middle Ionian Sea.
Sea kayaking in Greece at its best, at an area which is one of the most popular sea kayaking destinations in the Mediterranean Sea and in the world.
The position of the island between Kefalonia Lefkas and Mainland Greece is protecting Ithaca from big swells and strong winds.

East to West Project: samos to ithaca
- 22 Days
- 1 Kayaker
- 500 Nautical Miles
In November 2019 George Lilas completed our longest expedition so far. East to West project was about paddling from Samos island to Ithaca and Kefalonia. It was a charity project to support the general hospital of the two island in Argostoli. The biggest challenge of the trip was to cross the Aegean Sea which can be a dangerous area for kayaking in the Winter. Crossing the Corinth Canal, paddling under the Rio-Antirio bridge and visiting the Mesologhi lagoon were some of the highlights of the trip. Ocean paddler magazine accomodated an article about this expeditions and some national tv networks covered this trip.
We are planning more challenging expeditions in the near future.

Four of us had a lovely time kayaking from Odyssey base in Vathi to Filiatro bay.
Great guide accompanied us and safety was good. We were all beginners or occasional kayakers and we managed fine. Sea kayaks more comfortable than other kayaks we have rented.
Stopped half way on a beach for a swim / snorkel. Company provided lots of water and a roll / bagette for lunch. A beautiful experience.
Thank you Odyssey.

Had a fantastic 5 days kayaking on and off during our 10days we got to explore lots of secret beaches and almost 100% of Ithaca’s coast line. Vaggos was a fantastic guide. Really enjoyed his company and knowledge of Ithaca! Fully recommend doing this.
One night w camped out on a remote beach and watched the blood moon eclipse, it was beautiful.
Take a hat and sun cream!
