Together we will explore the sea-line of Eastern Crete, using nothing more but the strength of our arms, and a sense of adventure. We will flow only where the Kayak may take us, in inlet, sheer cliffs and sea caves that are known or we may discover, taking in what is truly Crete; the mystery of the Sea.
