Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Kayaking Tour from Split: Marjan Peninsula, Ciovo or Hvar Islands

Enjoy a kayaking experience in the blue waters of Split

4 - Hour Tour: 

Meet your guide in central Split and travel to Bene Beach at the foot of Marjan Hill. Put your life jacket on, listen to a comprehensive safety briefing and then paddle away from shore in your single kayak.

Keeping close to the sun-kissed shoreline, paddle around the peninsula and see the scenery change from secluded bays framed by pine forests to sweeping pebble beaches. Enjoy a stop on one of Split’s many beaches to soak up the sun and either swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic – equipment is provided! 

Besides taking in the gorgeous landscape, hear tips to improve your paddling technique and get the most out of your time on the water. After exploring the peninsula, stop at Bene Beach and finish your experience with a drop-off at the start point.

8 - Hour Tour:

Hop aboard your ferry or catamaran at Split Port and cruise across the waters to the town of Hvar – roughly 75 min away. 

Then, step inside your sea kayak and paddle around the enchanting Pakleni islands, a stunning archipelago that boasts more than 20 uninhabited islets. We cover part of the archipelago which is closer to Hvar town, passing by the islands of Jerolim and Marinkovic. If the weather permits we would sea kayak outside of the channel to the south side of the islands, experiencing the open sea and unlimited views over the horizon. In case of south winds, we would need to stay within the channel exploring the north side of the islands, protected from the winds. There is time to swim, snorkel, chill, get a coffee or refreshing drink at the beach bar. Kayak slowly back to Hvar in the early afternoon. 

Depending on the available return options for the day, you might get an opportunity to enjoy the remaining afternoon exploring this beautiful little gem on your own, before returning with the evening ferry back to Split.

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.

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!

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.
