Description of Self guided sea kayaking in Croatia

This is an independent, self guided sea kayaking holiday in Croatia, so in one way you are paddling alone, but in another you have the support of dedicated local kayaking experts to advise you on the itinerary. Because it is self-guided, some experience of sea kayaking is highly recommended. Starting in Dubrovnik, we will help you decide which islands to kayak to, how long to spend on each one, let you in on the best secret coves to access, as well as other walks and cycle trails to seek out when you want some on land time. Or the perfect sunset view.

We will book all your local accommodation (and restaurants if you like) and you can also join us on some of our regular group kayaks if you like, such as one around Dubrovnik’s medieval city walls, which is a wonderful site from the water. We will also provide with you all the equipment you need including kayaks, of course, maps, meteorological forecasts, GPS, mobile phone as well as an emergency number so that you can contact us at all times. We have a speedboat to access you at all times in the unlikely event of an emergency.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We work with local guest houses on the islands and we do not take the commission from the local guesthouse owners.

All of our guides are aware of their surrounding and they are constantly providing the travellers with suggestions of how to minimize potential negative impacts to the environment and marine ecosystems. Our guides emphasize on the importance of leaving the environment as it is. We observe marine life but we do not disturb it.

Our kayaks are made of recyclable plastic. They do not cause any form of air or water pollution and they do not produce noise that could be disturbing for marine life.

We suggest that our travellers visit historically, culturally and environmentally important sights (Old Town of Dubrovnik, Renaissance villas on the island of Sipan, Nature Park Lokrum).

Most memorable was getting out on the sea and being able to travel at your own pace. The Islands are amazing and Miljet is a must see place, we loved it. Read full review

We enjoyed the kayaking because we were able to get away from the throng of tourists and it was an ideal holiday for the 3 active teenagers we had with us but easy enough for the adults. Read full review

The sea kayaking and snorkelling on Lopud island was great fun. It got quite interesting in terms of high waves on the way back which was a welcomed challenge. Read full review
