Raskass kayak is a club that organizes day trips in the calanques or longer technical trainings, as well as some travels reserved for members on distant seas.
The word of hike could also be perfectly applied to this way of locomotion that offers a quiet navigation by staying closer to the coast to discover remarkable natural sites, some otherwise difficult to access.
And from La Ciotat to the Blue Coast, passing by Cassis and the Calanques National Park, you can trust Jeremiah Metzger, kayaking pioneer in Marseille and at the origin of the structure, to take you on the most newsworthy sites.
Of course, for the "discovery" outputs, you can go to Port Miou to visit from the sea the fabulous creek of En Vau, but if your approach is less touristy and more wild, do not hesitate to ask the tour on Riou islands. Beyond the spectacular beauty of the islands, the guides will explain you the geology of the calanques, the richness of flora as of fauna with its multitudes species birds: hawks, gulls, Gabians, shags, pétrelles ... And for sure, the return from Riou with sunset illuminating the white limestone creeks remain a lasting memory!
The kayak activity is closely dependent on weather conditions, so the meeting is often given for 8h at Bonneveine Youth hostel where the club got his premises. This allows to facilitate the logistics in case the output would not be practicable. You will then notice that you are never too many, usually around 8 people with a maximum of 12, to assure a real comfort level. Because even if the sea kayaks are profiled, lightweight and highly manoeuvrable (even for beginners), the practice is even more profitable with a good technical level.
Those who want can take advantage of the trainings to develop autonomy by touching the pure activity, push the limits by getting more extreme conditions. The other possibility is to participate in the monthly meeting reserved for members of the association, with the aim of raids in Corsica, Croatia and Nordic countries, as many trips in nature in complete autonomy.
Since 1998, Raskass Kayak works for the development of the activity in a strong environmental and ethical approach, in a deep respect for customers and members that amply justifies the few euros of difference with some others clubs ...
