Croatia Sea Kayaking Adventures

If I tell you that sea kayaking in Croatia is the perfect way to explore Croatia's unspoiled coast and islands, it must be a reason for it.

Considering kayaking as a sea water activity that takes place usually during the high summer season (from late June to late September), there are some advantages that makes kayaking on the Croatia Adriatic sea so special:

  • Unlike the Pacific Ocean, the North Sea or the Mediterranean Sea, Adriatic sea is calm, warm, clean and tide changes are almost imperceptible.
  • Your kayak will take you where ships and sailing boats won't be able to approach.
  • A different point of view on a cultural monuments. Imagine the unique view of the Dubrovnik city walls from the water!
  • Kayaking  you'll find the most beautiful pebble beaches and some of the hidden rocky or sandy beaches, difficult to reach.
  • The best occasion to put on your snorkeling gear to watch the hundreds of colorful fish and other sea creatures.
  • Kayaking won't be only a sport adventure or the experience of nature, but also a cultural experience.
  • No kayaking experience necessary to take part of any see kayak tour.
