Sea kayaking in Zadar archieplago!
Explore different islands, idyllic villages, stunning snorkling sites and get the best of the North Dalmatia´s islands.
Why sea kayaking?
Sea kayak is by far the most convenient and enjoyable way to explore the best of the islands in Zadar archipelago. It gives you access to some of the snorkling sites and beaches which are otherwise out of reach and it´s a great way to visit nearby islands, like Ist with it´s rewarding trek or island Zverniac for buying some famous local olive oil. The best of all: it´s the most sustainable way to travel around – you move only using your body´s force. And yes, sometime you get to see a dolphin visit.
Do you have to be in a big group?
The trips are maximum 8 people per guide. By keeping only small groups, the tourism development is kept sustainable and keep the quality of the trip on a high level.
If you would like to have a trip only for your party, please send us an email or give us a ring and we´d be happy to organise your independent trip.
Is kayaking hard?
Kayaking is more like walking or trekking, as opposed to running or weightlifting. Kayaking is an activity that everyone can do, regardless on your level of fitness. It may not be easy (you wouldn´t be doing it if it were), but everyone can do it.
The hubs and bases are perfectly situated so that you can easily adjust the itinerary to fit your level if you are a beginner or expert kayaker. Also, the positions of hubs and bases allows the guests to paddle in different weather conditions.
How many days can we do?
Most of the trips and arrangements are either 5 or 7 days long and include transportation, accommodation, breakfast and some dinners (with access to places that you woudn´t be able to get in on your own) to allow you to explore different islands. Guests appreciate having a few days to soak in the atmosphere and get to know the archipelago.
If you are stationed or accomodated in Zadar you can also join us for a day trip.
Can you just get the gear and go on our own?
Occassionally clubs and agencies rent out kayaks and gear, but only to experienced open water sea kayakers that have sufficient proficiency – minimum BCU Level 3 or similar or have have appropriate skills: safety and rescue, navigation, first aid and kayak handling.
They do not rent the gear to beginners. While kayaks are very safe when handled skillfully, they do require trainning and practice. It´s kind of like having a driver´s licence.
