Joan Ramon Royo (owner & guide)
Joan Ramon was born and raised in Sabadell, a city near Barcelona. During his youth he was a waterpolo player and swimming instructor. After finishing his university studies in Philosophy he started traveling and living in different countries until he came to Greece in 1999.
In Greece he discovered his love for sea kayaking and he thought that it was the perfect opportunity to turn his passion into a job, so he decided to pursue his dream. In 2013 he started his professional activity as a sea kayaking guide and in 2014 he founded Sea Kayak Samos on Samos island, the place where he lives with his family. Since then he is happy to lead trips in this beautiful part of the Aegean Sea.
He is a qualified guide by the British Canoeing Union (BCU) and a certified lifeguard. He speaks Spanish and Catalan (native languages), Greek, English, Italian and some French.
