Disembark from your cruise ship and then split from this Croatian coastal city for the Cetina River rapids on this full-day shore excursion that includes a white-water rafting extravaganza. After leaving Split, ride in a comfortable vehicle to the river and then hop on to an inflatable raft. With an experienced skipper present, float down the river paddles in hand and try to take note of the unspoiled Croatian nature. After a swim in the river, eat a hearty Croatian lunch (at own expense) and then return to Split after an exhilarating day of white water rafting and swimming.
After meeting up with your knowledgeable local guide at Diocletian’s Palace in the center of Split, hop on the comfortable bus for the brief ride to the beautiful Cetina River. Get a short safety instructional, and put on the provided equipment. Then get in the raft because it’s time to hit the rapids.
Once in the inflatable raft with the experience skipper at your side and paddle out. Each raft holds eight people. As you make your way down the river, don’t be afraid of falling overboard. It’s part of the fun and the experience. Climb back in and take a second to admire the unspoiled Croatian countryside and nature that flanks the river. The river will hit patches of rough, bouncy water and sections of calm and placid water where you'll have a chance to enjoy the surroundings. As you paddle down the river through ravines and gorges, past villages and small towns, near green meadows and mountains, take a deep breath and be happy to be smack in the middle of beautiful bucolic Croatia. Or chat with your fellow raft-mates about the experience.
After about 3 hours padding down the river in the raft, cruise up to shore and then finish this fun excursion at a traditional bread-making restaurant called Radmanove Mlinice. If you want or need, use the restaurant’s facilities to freshen up and then take a well-earned rest in its leafy garden. Refuel with a lunch at your own expense (fruit, water, beer and soft drinks are not included)
Then get on the bus to make the journey to Split.

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!!
A lot of fun on the rafting trip. The rafting is not too intense as in other grand rapids, since the river is not too rough. The guides are very good in navigating the groups.
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!
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!
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
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!
