If you are looking for a day adventure that will satisfy all your senses then sea kayaking Novigrad bay by Zadar is the right choice for you. We start our day with sea kayaking instructions on the beach just in front of the hotel. After the introduction, we embark our kayaks. The kayak expedition takes us into the Zrmanja River canyon. The water here is brackish (mixed fresh and saltwater) which is the reason for abundant life under the surface. The eel, which dwells here, is a favorite gourmet specialty. But we are more likely to spot turtles, fish, and birds along the way.

Swimming and jumping off cliffs

After kayaking upstream on calm water, swimming and jumping off cliffs we make an optional picnic lunch on the shores where the river meets the sea. On our way back to Novigrad, we enjoy the great views of the red Maslenica Bridge. No previous experience is needed for this sea kayaking Novigrad by Zadar adventure. Even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket and paddle, plus one dry bag per boat for your personal items. Don’t forget to bring shorts or a bathing suit, T-shirt, spare clothes, a towel, sun cream, water, and picnic. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.

During this one day Novigrad Bay Sea Kayaking adventure you are being accompanied by one of our expert local guides to ensure you safety and full experience of the tour.
