Kalymnos and her dolphins

Here is finally a new post.
In this i want to share with you the possibilities of watching dolphins.
Yep, as you see there is so much to do here on and around our little Island.

Since 4 years we are spotting them on a regular base.
A small pod of dolphins.

We have them on the northwest side and on the south side of the island.
It are actually two different groups. Mostly having 4 to 9 members.
Since last year the group has 2 new members. They gave birth, one in april 2013 and one in april this year.

The dolphins can be spotted between May and October and often they come close to beaches like Emborios, Kalamies and even to the Telendos Side.

It is a big pleasure to have them here. Just remember, watch them, dont disturb them to much and protect.


Welcome in our sea.

This is who we are……


We are the common bottlenose dolphins. (Tursiops truncatus).

We live from the sea and eat fish, squid and octopus.

We are not dangerous but would like it if you let us swim around.

Since april we have a new member in our group, our newborn dolphin, that makes us 6 now.

 


Enjoy our presence………..

We are the most regular visitors around here.

kalymnos is the spot to be

It has been a while to write something here.

But here is some information you need to know.

Kalymnos is the place to be, as many of you know.
Is it not for climbing, then for a lot of other reasons i mentioned before in older posts.

But lets talk about the climbing;
There is a lot going on for this. We try to make things better and better.
New routes, organizing a real rescue team etc etc.

We have busy periods and not so busy periods. This is al depending on weather and holidays of your side.

The most busy periods are May and Oktober.
May; because its the first change to get some decent weather and there are some early holidays. The first flights are starting and the also the charterflights are getting on their way. This is the period that a lot of climbers find their way to Kalymnos.

October; because it is the end of the summer. The weather and conditions are perfect for a late in the year climb. Even a swim after climbing is possible. Your last change to get a glimpse of the sun before the winter starts. A last school holiday in Europe and the last flights are finding their way to Kos/Kalymnos.

And here it comes; everybody wants to be here during those periods. Kalymnos get loaded with thousands of people. And many of them didnt book not even their accomodation in advance. Neither they can find any means of transportation. lots of people complain to us, that there is not enough (space, transportation or whatever).

Here is the free tip; there are other months in which you can climb under perfect conditions.June is simply very good. During summer holidays; Take your family with you and combine climbing with quality holiday time. September is a very good month and there is just the half amount of people around here. Dont forget November; its even better then October. Ok there are not so many flights anymore but you can find your way over Athens ( not more expensive). There is less people and much more space (accomodation and transportation) on the crags. The weather was even better then in October in the last years.

It is al up to you.
But my advice for 2014; book in advance your means to have  a nice holiday and not to spend days of looking around for rooms and transportation.
Book in advance means; if you know it in June, why to wait with making bookings untill a few days before October starts.

We see you soon on Kalymnos.

May is over, Summer is coming.

Hello dear travelers,

we are back to inform you about our pearl.

May is over, a busy May as i can say. Loads of people found their way to this destination,
Mostly climbers, to try their skills on our fantastic rocks.
People from all over the world got their projects done or just a fun climbs with spectacular views.


Our island is so easy to reach, when charter flights started and when low-cost carriers start.
It is always a pleasure for lots of people to come again and again. They know their way.
But for many of them it will be the first time and they must shown how to get to and how to get around on the island.
We would be more then happy to help everybody. Even when you are at home and you dont know where to start. On the WEB are plenty of ways to find and organize your trip. I put al the info together on one page, so it is easy to find from now. Dont mind my basic product and i dont want to advertise it.

Kalymnos winter climbing

Kalymnos winter climbing; in the period 22 December till 5 January




We were looking for you for the possibility to visit our beautiful island for climbing during Christmas time.
We looked for possible flights and connections.

We found out that;
-You have to fly to Athens and from there you make your connection to Kos or Kalymnos by flight (in order not to waste to much time by ferry).
-Aegean airlines provides the best prices and the best straight connections between some airports in your country and Athens. With them you can also fly to Kos.
-If you fly on a bank holiday (Christmas day) it will be much cheaper.
-The period of holiday is 2 weeks in europe.

-We looked for departure airports like; Prague, Munich, Frankfurt, Paris, London (which is extremely expensive), Vienna, Amsterdam.

-Airports like; Zurich, Madrid and Oslo where not possible for Aegean Airlines.

-Return flights to Athens had the average cost of about 300-400 euro per person.

-Iberia and Air France can even be cheaper.

-Return flights Athens- kos are about 172 euro, with Aegean airlines.

http://en.aegeanair.com/


Next to Aegean airlines is Alitalia the cheapest but you have always an extra stop in your connection to Athens.

So now you know this, you probably want to know if it is worth it to come. Maybe because of the weather.

See here the history of our winters; http://freemeteo.com/default.asp?pid=155&la=1&gid=261506&monthFrom=12&yearFrom=2011&sid=167420, you can search on every year if you want.

Is there anything open during the winter period?

You can always find a place to stay but hotels like plaza and so are closed. Some other studios and apartments are open for winter period.

There might be a few restaurants open and for sure a minimarket in masouri. For the rest it is quiet and peaceful.

How is climbing during this period.

The sectors are super, although you have to find maybe the right spot, because of some cold wind. Other sectors, which are too hot during the normal season, can now be suddenly surprising inviting to you. It is happening that you will be happy to climb there in the sun. the south side of Telendos with its multi pitches and crystal cave for example. Or what about a full day of climbing in Arhi and Seaside Kitchen. Many other sectors which you left on the side in the normal season, can now be climbed all day long. So new challenges are waiting for you.

So grab your stuff and a very good book and come over to relax.
