You are committed to an eco-responsible approach. Tell us what this means?
Our commitment to an eco-friendly approach is directly related to our passion for surfing and the ocean. In recent years we have seen more and more pollution by plastics and hydrocarbons in our most beautiful spots on the island. This prompted three friends to protect the beauty of the underwater world by creating Econautica, an ecological sailing centre whose main activity uses transparent kayaks, but also paddles and kayaks. In due course, 100% electrical equipment will be made available to our customers.
How did you come up with the idea of a transparent kayak? What courses do you offer?
The idea came from a surf trip in the lagoon near Saint Leu, which allowed us to approach the reefs without noise or environmental disruption. We have a route between the tip of Scudo and the Sanguinaires Islands that is particularly rich in flora and fauna.
In which season(s) can we go sea kayaking?
Anytime between 15 April and 15 October.
What are your different rental options?
We have different rental options for our three activities:
Paddle: Hour / Half-day
Kayak: Hour / Half-day
Transparent kayak: Half-hour / Hour / Half-day
Where is your nautical base and how can we contact you?
Our nautical base is located at Hotel Stella di Mare on Route des Sanguinaires, with access via the hotel or via the beach located 50 metres further on.
