WELCOME TO MORYAK

MORYAK

Our name derives from Russian (моряк – pronounced: "maryak") and means "seafarer". For us, though, bearded pipe-smoking men with tattoos of anchors are not the first thing that we think of when we hear the word. MORYAK means love of the sea, passion, wanderlust, freedom and an unquenchable thirst for adventure. A MORYAK is a nomad of the sea – just like us.
MORYAK is the sea kayak tour provider, specialising in carefully chosen, lovingly crafted kayak tours, professionally organised and carried out in harmony with nature. We provide the most beautiful and exciting marine tours, and the best sea kayak training camps at all levels, as well as basic courses on local bodies of water.

…and this is our story

++ The Film about Moryak, a company with heart, passion and great ambitions in the midst of the corona rollercoaster 2020 ++

It was not easy to shoot a film portrait in 2020 about a young company that specialises in sea kayaking tours. As we all know, this was a year in which many things that we previously took for granted suddenly was no longer given: Travelling was extremely difficult or even impossible and the yield of gripping footage from exciting expeditions was accordingly meager ... Nevertheless, our friend and fellow paddler Tom Vetterl managed to produce this beautiful and, we think, really worth seeing fifteen-minute film about Moryak!
