What to pack for a kayaking tour?

Carefully check through all essential items listed below to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. The dress code on Croatian Islands is more relaxed than on the mainland. Avoid cotton items as much as possible because they lack warmth and take forever to dry once they are wet.

Our kayaks are designed for longer expeditions to carry a large amount of equipment but they do have their limitations. You will have an opportunity to paddle both single or double kayaks on your trip (notify us before the trip). We provide all necessary paddling and safety equipment.

All guides are equipped with rescue equipment and well appointed first aid.
