Whether you're a thrill-seeker or a leisurely adventurer, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Parasailing: Soar high above the waters of Corfu

Get ready to take to the skies with an exhilarating Corfu parasailing experience, a recreational kiting activity where you are towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed parasail wing that resembles a parachute.

Hop on a state-of-the-art parasailing boat that will take you on an unforgettable ride as you soar high above the sparkling waters of Corfu, enjoying the panoramic views of the island and the stunning coastline as you glide through the air.

SUP (Stand Up Paddle): Discover the beauty of Corfu at your own pace

When the sun is shining and the weather is hot, there’s nothing better than being in (or on!) the water. However, if you prefer a more stress-free activity than parasailing, then Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is the perfect watersport for you! 

This is your chance to relax and improve your mental health, strengthen your core abdominal muscles, and explore the pristine waters of Corfu at your own pace while at it. 

And the best part? You can either join us at Kalami Watersports or Dassia Ski Club for a unique experience or opt for a 3-day SUP rental to venture out on your own and discover the beauty of Corfu at your own leisure. 

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced paddler, Corfu Watersports has the perfect SUP board for you, including a kids stand up paddle board for our little friends. 

Cruise along the coastline, explore hidden coves, or simply enjoy the serenity of the sea as you paddle, and rest assured that this vacation will forever live in your mind rent-free!

Wakeboarding: Ride the waves and master the tricks

A combination of water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques, wakeboarding is the epitome of extreme sports for many!

Done both for pleasure and competition, it might be relatively difficult to master at first, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t be getting off that wakeboard. 

At Corfu Watersports, we offer a variety of wakeboards and bindings to suit your style and skill level. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced rider, our top-quality equipment and expert guidance will ensure a thrilling and safe wakeboarding experience in Corfu!

Wakesurfing: Ride the endless wave and feel the thrill

While wakeboarding is about being pulled by a boat with a rope, wakesurfing only makes use of the waves created by the boat, without using a rope – thus its name.  

If you're looking for a unique and exciting water sports experience, wakesurfing is a must-try activity for sure!

Our wakesurf boat will create the perfect wave for you to ride, allowing you to surf without being tethered to the boat. It's a thrilling and challenging activity that requires skill and balance, but our instructors will provide you with all the guidance you need to “ride the endless wave” and feel the thrill of wakesurfing in Corfu.

Inflatable rings and rides: Fun and excitement for the whole family

But enough with the extreme sports! How about some all-time-classic fun on the water with our inflatable rides?

For those looking for a fun and exhilarating activity for the whole family, solo water rings and other inflatables, such as Ringo, Crazy Sofa, and AirStream, are a perfect choice. 

Hold on tight as you ride on our inflatable tubes, bananas, or sofas, pulled by our powerful boats across the pristine waters of Dassia and Kalami. It's a laughter-filled adventure for adults and children that will create lasting memories and make your Ionian Island holidays a dream! 

Rent a boat in Corfu: Explore the jewel of the Ionian Sea
