 About Us

The Company

Sea Kayak Milos and Petrinela's Guesthouse and Kafeneio Perros are owned and operated by Rod Feldtmann and Petrinela Vikeli.  They  have three children, Anna and Alexia and Perros and live on Milos, year round.

 

Petrinela Vikeli (CEO)

Petrinela comes from a local family and was born and raised on Milos.  After school she moved to Athens and obtained a degree in Tourism Administration.  She worked for a while in the hotel industry in Athens, before retreating to the quiet life of the islands.

Petrinela manages the family operated Kafeneio (Coffee-Ouzo bar) and the Guesthouse business, in-between her motherly tasks.  She enjoys spending time with her family, quiet nights at home, sundays at the beach and the occasional moonlight swim. After working hard all summer, she looks forward to a winter break, either skiing in the alps, or to Australia for an endless summer.


 

The Guides

Rod Feldtmann (company founder, owner, operator and guide)

Rod grew up on a farm in Victoria, Australia.  After graduating with a degree in Geology from the University of Wollongong, he worked for 10 years as an Exploration Geologist in Australia, South America and finally in Milos.  In year 2001, when his contract as a Geologist came to an end, Rod established Sea Kayak Milos as a means to remain on Milos, sustain his family and to enjoy the great outdoors.  The aim of the business was, and still is, to provide affordable sea-kayaking holidays, in a fantastic location, to people of all abilities.

With 16 years experience leading trips on Milos and to other places in Greece, he is one of the most experienced guides in Greece.  He regularly travels to the UK to attend British Canoe Union (BCU) training courses.  He holds his 5 star sea kayak leader certificate and is currently a UKCC Level 2 sea kayak coach  see Rods paddling resume.
 

 

Dave Watson (Expedition leader, Assistant guide)

Having first visited Sea Kayak Milos as a customer in 2008, Dave is now a regular member of the guiding/coaching team which gives him the chance to share his passion for kayaking with others. In addition to assisting with the day trips Dave also leads the Expedition programme assisted by his wife, Sue. Dave prefers taking his time exploring the coastline, beaches and caves - on every trip there is something new to investigate and share with the group.

Dave is a qualified Wilderness Guide accredited by Wild Scotland, holds the BCU UKCC 5* Sea Kayak Leader award and is working towards becoming a BCU UKCC Level 3 Coach.

When not paddling on Milos, Dave can be found on the West Coast of Scotland, either guiding or kayaking with friends. He and Sue live in Penrith, England, although they both seem to spend a lot of their time in Greece paddling or following their other passions – hiking, biking, visiting historical sites and sampling the local cuisine.

 


Sue Watson (Assistant Expedition Guide)

Sue is a regular visitor to Milos, initially helping husband Dave on the Expeditions.   Following her career in teaching, Sue now shares her love for paddling with like minded people on a more permanent basis assisting with the expeditions and day trips. Having cracked the basics of kayak rolling to gain her UKCC  3*, Sue is now focussing on developing her repertoire of rolls!  On expeditions, Sue particularly enjoys the opportunity to meet people and hear their paddling stories over a meal and glass of wine on the beach!  She has paddled with Dave in Greenland, various locations on the West Coast of Scotland, Shetland and been on a number of trips in the Med. 

Always up for a bit of adventure and a challenge, Sue’s  paddling experience and background as an educator, helps ensure you have a fun filled Greek island paddling experience.
