Sea Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast

Harriet and Kate L are here to help give you the inside track.

The Elaphiti Islands, forming part of the Dalmatian Coast, run in a chain parallel to the mainland and form the perfect aquatic playground for exploration by sea kayak.

The crystal clear Adriatic Sea, famously described by Jacques Cousteau as 'the cleanest sea in the world', has warm summer waters with negligible tides and currents, and infrequent big waves, so kayaking is a serene and graceful way to visit the various islands. Even better, with the help of an expert English-speaking guide, paddling is very easy to learn.

We can arrange both day trips around the islands, complete with inlets, caves and harbours, as well as seaside restaurants serving delicious fresh seafood, or longer trips camping at night on deserted beaches or staying in charming small hotels on some of the islands.

By day, kayak from cove to cove, eat al fresco, and explore the densely wooded islands, and the crystal clear calm waters between them, teeming with fish.
