The tour will be adjusted to your experience and expectations. This tour is offered Mondays from June to August and for private groups upon booking throughout the year.

We meet on the Saaronniemi beach at the island Ruissalo, just 20 minutes by bus number 8 or by car from Turku center. After helping you with the equipment, we paddle out into the Turku and Naantali archipelago in an enjoyable and relaxed pace. The length and program for the day will be tailored by your sea kayaking guide to suit the participants' and the weather conditions in order to make the day perfect for you no matter if this is your first time in a sea kayak or if you are a skilled kayaker from before.
