We’ll have lunch on the beach together with some swimming and other activities.

  • Who should join a sea kayaking adventure in Croatia?

    People from all ages are joining our tours. We had people in their 80’s and the oldest lady was 87 while the oldest man was 80.
    Usually we get a mix of couples, families and singles that are generally between 25 and 60.
    Family Trips are not mixed with other adult groups and we do separate Family departures with children as young as 8.
    A lot of our clients have extensive paddling experience while some have never been kayaking or camping but once they try it they keep coming back for more.
    We are happy to let you know who has signed up for the requested tour so you can choose if group suits your preference.

  • What if I travel alone?

    Great, we are happy to have you join us. Our clients come from all around the world and our groups are diverse.
    On most of our trips you don’t need to pay the single supplement fee!

    On very few trips where we use private room accommodation you’ll have to pay the single supplement fee due to reason that all of accommodation types are based on double occupancy.

    However, you can also save money sharing the room with another single traveler, if any on the tour.

  • What if I want a custom tour?

    A lot of our trips are custom adventures based on our customers’ wishes, so feel free to contact us and we will gladly cater to your needs.

    We do not charge any extra fee for custom departures for groups with at least 4 people.

    We fully understand that some couples want to do the trip privately or spend their Honeymoon guided by our company, so we will gladly provide a custom quote for two people as well.

  • What is the minimum age for kayaking tours?

    We love sea kayaking with kids and families! However, to ensure safety as the top of our trip priority, some of our trips have a minimum age requirement.

    The most perfect family trips are Sea Kayaking around the Island of Rab and Kornati National Park. We are publishing Family departure dates as soon as we get the minimum number of 4 guests and then usually we end up with two or three families on a trip. This is really great as the children are making new friendships from around the world and later we get great feedback from them saying that they are still in contact or have been visiting them. However, the published itinerary is more likely to be changed due to group skills or preferences and the weather conditions. Safety is our priority. We are there for children and we do not like to push any limits and get children in dangerous situations as that will impact on their future kayaking or any outdoor trips.

    On our Kornati trip, the great thing is that we are using a base camp from where we paddle out for day trips so in case the older children or some parents are tired they can stay in the campsite while we’re out for a paddle.

  • 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.

  • What is Croatian gastronomy like?

    There are many regions in Croatia and as much gastro regions. As we will sail in the region called Dalmatia, here are few facts about their cousine, which can and should have a big impact on your sailing holidays in Croatia.

    Dalmatian gastro identity is created under the influence of diverse cultures throughout the centuries and is today greatly appreciated for the most delicious offering. The highest mark was given by the Venetians, French and Austrians. On one side we could easily say that Dalmatian cousine is classic Mediterranen type, healthy-light food, with plenty of fish, other seafood and homegrown vegetables, but on the other side it is specific, especially when it comes to food preparation. Richness of the sea and sea life, combined with herbs like rosemary, bay leaf, basil and olives gives extraordinary smell and taste. Most of the food is grilled or prepared in olive oil, but one of the best specialty, which is really hard to find elsewhere in the world is meat or seafood »baked under bell« (»izpod peke« as locals call it). Beside seafood, lamb is also a specialty and of course famous Dalmatian Parma ham in combination with Paški sir (cheese from island Pag). But for locals good food is nothing without a glass of wine.

    In Dalmatia, the Greeks and Romans first started growing vines and Croats continue to do that. Dalmatia’s history is closely connected with vine growing and wine making. Dalmatian wines are of the best quality because of the abundance of soil crag and solar heat.
