The Adriatic Sea is warm and clear, with clean water and insignificant tides. Strong currents are rare, big waves as well. Nasty winds are rare and predictable. With over a 1000 islands, sea kayaking in Croatia is fantastic.
There are sandy beaches in Croatia, but gravel and rocks of all kinds are most likely to be found in coastal areas and on islands. You will experience sea kayaking past huge rocks and below high cliffs, explore the caves and relax in hidden coves. You will enjoy sun and warm water and discover the world of silence under the surface. Your kayak will take you where sailing boats don’t even dream of daring: very near the rocks, to the thin line between the sea and land where hundreds of colorful fish and other creatures seek food and shelter.
There is another thing that makes sea kayaking on Adriatic Sea special, unique and the best on the continent: HISTORY. These areas have witnessed the power and the glory of Roman and Ottoman empires, Venetian and Dubrovnik republic, Napoleon legions and Allied forces. The traces of these ancient cultures show on almost every step.
Sea kayaking in Croatia won't be just a sport and nature experience but also cultural. Floating above remains of roman thermae or sunken ship and walking in amphitheater or palaces is not the same as seeing it on a picture. Come and see for yourself. The fact that only a few people know about sea kayaking in hidden parts of Croatia means that you shouldn’t wait long.
