Sea Kayaking

Kayak Gozo's Coastline and Explore Comino's Caves with Gozo Adventures 
We were the first to offer Gozo kayaking tours, beginning way back in 2011. Our half and full-day tours are as popular as ever – check out our 5* reviews on Tripadvisor and see for yourself! Don’t worry if you don’t know a canoe from a kayak, or have only paddled on a lake or river - no experience is necessary to enjoy our Gozo fun tours. Our qualified guides will support you to get to grips with the basics before you kayak along the coast, paddle past rocks, explore inside caves, and enjoy the clear warm waters of Gozo and Comino.

Please note:
  • For family tours we welcome anyone aged 8 years and over. Children under 14 years of age will need to be in a double kayak with a responsible adult from your group.
  • Kayaking in Malta is weather dependent, so we can not guarantee your route in advance.  The guide will consider the wind, swell, and abilities of the group, and choose the safest option.
Gozo Adventures Kayaking Team also offers:
  • Custom made kayaking tours and games for team building events
  • Kayak Malta and Gozo with our multi-day kayaking holidays
  • Kayak skills training.

Family Kayaking Tour

Our short kayaking tour is ideal for families with young children or as a kayaking tour for beginners.

We use sit-on-top kayaks for this two hours family friendly tour. They are extra stable on the water and very easy to get in and out of.  Perfect for a family activity in Gozo!

This family friendly kayaking tour explores the coastline around Gozo’s Hondoq Bay.  After a safety briefing and getting to grips with the basics of using the paddles, we’ll head for a bat cave!  The short kayaking tour also takes in some roman salt pans, a military battery from the time of the Knights of St John, and the opportunity to learn about Dragut the pirate.  As always though, the real star of the trip is Gozo’s rocky coastline clear blue waters!  

Our short family kayaking tour runs from Monday to Saturday throughout the summer season.  Opt for either a 12 noon or 2.30pm start.   

The tour includes a short break.  Googles are provided if you wish to swim.


Half Day Kayaking Gozo - Morning Tour

If you're an early riser, or need time for afternoon activities, our morning tours are for you!

The morning kayak tour usually starts at 9.45am at Hondoq Bay on Gozo's South Coast. It’s a great place to get to grips with the basic skills before setting off across the channel to visit the island of Comino. But no promises! If the wind direction isn’t suitable, we set off from the other side of the island so you could find yourself paddling Gozo's quieter North Coast, or heading off from Dwerja's famous Inland Sea. We promise you’ll enjoy the tour whichever route you do!

Bring a large bottle of water, swim shoes, sunscreen, a hat
Start time 9.45am - Duration - around 3 hours

Pre-booking necessary.

Half Day Kayaking Gozo - Afternoon Tour

Take advantage of a 2pm start, by trying one or our other activities earlier in the day and paddling when it's a little cooler.

For this fun afternoon kayak tour we usually meet at Hondoq Bay and paddle towards Comino, but to stay safe, the wind and swell conditions always have the final say in where we meet and where we head for! Wherever the weather gods send you, we know you’ll love to kayak in Gozo and Comino’s clear waters, and explore the rocky coastline and small caves. You’re also guaranteed to have picked up some solid paddling skills and an appetite for dinner by the end of your time on the water.

Bring plenty of drinking water, swim shoes, sun cream and a sun hat

Start time 2pm - Duration - around 3 hours

Pre-booking necessary.


Full Day Kayak Gozo Tour

Please don't worry that a whole day kayaking Gozo will be too exhausting!

Please don't worry that a whole day kayaking Gozo will be too exhausting! A full day means we can take time for swimming and snorkelling stops and enjoy a long lunch break. We aim to keep things fun and relaxed, with around 3.5 hours of paddling time within the 6+ hour trip. We return to shore around 5pm.
Bring along snorkels if you have them as sadly Covid guidelines means we can no longer offer them to you. We'll bring everything else you need for the best day out on the water, including lunch!
