What You Can Expect

Split Shore Excursion: Cetina River White-Water Rafting Adventure from Split

Paddle along the breathtakingly beautiful Cetina River!

Meet your guide by Diocletian Palace in Split, and then board your air-conditioned minibus for the short journey to Cetina River. Stop at the river’s canyon and head down to the water’s edge for your comprehensive safety briefing. Full equipment is provided, and your guide will ensure your lifejacket and helmet is fitted correctly before helping you into your inflatable raft.

Each raft holds up to 7 people, as well as an onboard skipper, who will help your group paddle and give instructions along the way. Falling out of the boat is all part of the experience, so get ready to get wet! Your skipper will give safety tips to help you resurface quickly and stay safe if (or more likely ‘when’) you fall into the river! Starting on a calm stretch of water to help you get used to paddling, your route then gradually progresses to more demanding parts of the river, culminating in larger drops toward the end.

While navigating the rapids you’ll not fail to notice the serene beauty of the countryside around you. The fast-paced currents of Cetina River gush past moss-draped gorges, bordered by verdant meadows, frescoed with wild flowers. Dramatic rocky ridges plunge into the clear green-hued waters of the river, and you can even dive in for a swim, if you wish!

After 3 hours on the river, paddle to shore and then finish your raft ride at a traditional bread-making restaurant called Radmanove Mlinice. After using the restaurant’s facilities to freshen up, take a well-earned rest in its garden. Refuel with a lunch at your own expense (fruit, water, beer and soft drinks are not included)

Feeling revitalized, hop back on board your minibus and then return to Split. Your tour finishes at the start point in the late afternoon.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This tour was great!! Just wished there were more rapids!! The guides were great and very helpful. Really pleased we chose this tour in Split. The company provided wetsuit pants and shoes which we didn't know, so that was a plus! Good fun!!

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

A great day trip with very knowledgeable guides. All equipment is provided for you which makes it easy - including water shoes. Only downside was that unlike it says in the description, the rapids are extremely tame. Maybe easy at best, not approaching medium difficulty. Still - a fun excursion!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

Great Tour and Great Guides!
We were a little disappointed that there was a policy change on lunch/refreshments because it would have been nice and atmospheric to hang out by the river a bit and try some authentic food.
Would definitely recommend this tour!

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

The staff was friendly and personable, but morning pickup from cruise ship dock was late causing us to worry and run off to get wifi to make phone call. Also, the dive site was not great. Not much to see...only very few colorful fish at all

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2015

Transportation to/from the rafting was dangerous, unsafe and unnecessary. 160kph in a Volkswagen People mover weaving in/out of traffic, the driver barely concentrating. 7 very scared passengers at the end!
