    Zlarin Island kayak tour
    I made a last minute enquiry and was lucky to get on a group kayak day tour to Zlarin Islands. The group was on a week adventure holiday based in Skradin, doing a different activity each day (cycling, walking, rafting, etc.).

    The group was mixed ability and they paired us in such a way that everyone could keep up. First wee visited a small natural beach for a swim. Then we kayaked to Zlarin village to have lunch in a restaurant. Some opted to stay on the beach. After this we kayaked across to St Nicholas' 16th century Venetian fort, where we had some time to look around.

    On return we had a walk in Sibenik old town. The base Skradin is also a very pretty small town with cafes, restaurants, a good base for KrKa National Park.

    I really enjoyed the day and highly recommend it and other tours with Raftrek

    My second time with Raftrek. I did the Zlarin day kayaking trip near Sibenik last year, this year same again, plus the Cetina rafting. Each time I couldn't help but to be impressed by the organisation and the skillfulness of the staff.
    Truly memorable experience.

    Zlarin Island sea kayaking
    Booked our day trip a month in advance via the raftrek website which was super easy.

    We had plenty time to get used to the kayak and were shown how to safely drive/ride it, gaining a lot of experience in just one day! Just the right amount of time at sea as we had definitely earned our evening beers afterwards! You get big barrels for your stuff so you can take quite a lot and don't need to worry about it getting wet.

    Our guide's name was Peter who went out his way to ensure we got to do everything we wanted while on the trip, he was full of knowledge so we now know loads about Croatian history and culture. You'd be very lucky to have him as your guide. He took us exploring the fortress of St Nicholas which was cool. Highly recommend this trip, favourite day of our holiday, well worth the money.

    Thank you very much Peter, best wishes! Jamie and Gemma! :)

    Wonderful day sightseeing from the sea. Our guide was very helpful and really fitted the trip to our needs. The views of Sibenik and the nearby towns were wonderful, it was excellent to get out on the water and have a different perspective of the landscape and islands. A lovely day out and very well organised, thank you Valentino! The water was perfectly still in the morning which made for easy kayaking, but by the afternoon the weather had become a little more challenging so make sure you save some energy for th return journey.
