Full description
After a short instructional and safety briefing you’ll head out in your sea kayak from the northern shore of Marjan peninsula on 4-hour guided paddling tour. Paddling west with your guide you’ll follow the beautiful shadow of Marjan Hill, the peninsula in the center of Split almost completely surrounded by the sea. The hill is 178 meters high and is completely covered by dense pine forest. Pass through the Kaštela channel, with the 7 villages of Kaštela to the north and the Kozjak Hill rising above them. You’ll have a view of Split from the north-west, and the 1,300-meter-high Mosor Hill. On the west, see the island of Čiovo on the horizon. After reaching the Marjan Cape, you’ll pass by the most beautiful part of the town, built in classic Mediterranean style. From this point you’ll paddle east as you admire the south shore of Marjan. Pass by fascinating pyramid rocks, and stop for a break to swim and enjoy refreshments. Further east, you’ll pass by Villa Dalmatia, the resort of former Yugoslav president Tito, where he hosted numerous world celebrities and politicians. Soon you’ll reach the Sustipan Cliff, jutting sharply up from the sea. For climbing enthusiasts, this is the perfect place for deep water soloing, climbing up from the water without protective gear, and finalizing the climb with a cliff dive into the sea! Continue paddling to the outer gates of the port, where you’ll be rewarded with fabulous views of the town promenade, a 1,700-year-old palace, the red roofs of the old town, Marjan Hill, and the other hills surrounding Split.

    This is the one thing on my list to do ever since I arrived I’m Croatia. Highly recommend this - small group , well organised . Enough time for swimmming / cliff jump / exploring and enjoying a drink on the beach . Drazen ( hope I spelt it right ) and Tom are very professional and good company . All that you have to do is enjoy the sea and sunshine - everything else is managed by them. I did it as a morning activity before heading to the airport . They were kind enough to acccomodate my luggage so that I could rush away right after . Glad I did it ! Thanks very much :)

    Super nice experience

    Marco was a skilled guide, he told along the way and gave us the opportunity to choose in terms of route and breaks. Really nice trip and we subsequently slept really well at night :-) Maybe it would be a good idea with a more detailed description of the activity. Ex. that we were picked up by car and got sightseeing to the kayak place with the purchase.

    We really enjoyed the Kayak tour as guided by Marko. It was excellent.

    Marko tailored the kayak tour perfectly for my wife and me. We wanted something a bit more demanding as weren't inexperienced and that's what we got. Marko was very attentive and ensured we were provided information about the surrounds on our way, and provided a much appreciated break midway through the tour. I would certainly recommend the Split 4 hour sea kayak tour.
