Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

I love this kayaking experience as it offers three options: stay closer to town or venture further afield to explore one of two islands! The guide is really attentive and sticks close by to give any help you need. You might feel tired at the end, but it’s definitely a wonderful experience.

We really enjoyed this trip. Our host was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

The views were beautiful and we had plenty of breaks by the beach.

Definitely recommended for a great afternoon.

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. My instructors Vese and Kicho were the nicest people; experienced, patient and very knowledgeable, they tutored me as a novice and tailored the tour to make sure I had the best experience possible.

If you only have a short time in Split, so this :)

Beautiful morning of ocean kayaking. We were met in town and then took the city bus for about 20 minutes to a large park where we put in. The scenery was gorgeous, the guide was excellent. A perfect way to see a different side of Split.

We chose a longer trip of 6 hours for the chance to see another island and we definitely don't regret it! an amazing experience and we even did a bit of snorkelling when we were on the beach! A brilliant day and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Split!

Had a great small group tour around the Marjan peninsular. The group moved at a nice pace, less pressure to keep up compared to kayaking tours we've had elsewhere. In retrospect there was no real safety briefing beforehand but the water was very calm. Take your own water with you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Amazing tour! It was so much fun, the instructor was very helpful and fun guy. We went to a private beach whih was very special. Would do it again. The only thing I would say is that the instructor could have informed us of any pain and how to avoid it from the beginning. Other than that, brill!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

we attended on the 16th, a great experience, lined on the water and beautiful landscapes, professional guides.

Great expirience. Took a dubble kayak, and get off over sea to an island with high cliffs. Once there, we went on a small prive beach for 45'. When going back to the starting point, we saw 2 dolphins in the see to.


3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

We chose the 6 hour trip which was good but we didn't know the 45 min stop was at a deserted beach with no facilities. The trip was too long without a food break, we knew lunch wasn't provided but we should have been told to take food with us. Our guide was good and competent.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2016

Very good leader and it was the lowest priced kayak tour.
However, the meeting place was moved about a km and the meeting time was changed to a hour later. May have been partially my fault since I didn't reconfirm when I was in Split.
Also the 4 hour tour was really 3 hours.
