Great trip. Well worth the money. We were only in split for a short time. Veta (sp?) was amazing. The beach we stopped at was clean and great for snorkeling for a few minutes. We jumped off the cliff - eek! Wonderful short little day trip.

It was really great! Nice kayaking trip along the Marjan hill then snorkelling on a nice little beach. Very rejuvenating. The guide was great and just for us! On the other hand, be careful, it is not always comfortable for the back.

Really lovely way to see some of Split’s popular beaches and very well organised. The guides were excellent and there was plenty of time for swimming and cliff jumping if you wanted to also.

We had a great day canoeing down the Cetina with Marin as our guide. It was so much fun, and such beautiful scenery the whole way. Would definitely recommend

Very nice tour, great guides, well organized. You should bring a bit of fitness with you.
