Croatia Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast
Our Croatia kayaking trip explores the islands of the Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast where over one thousand sun-drenched islands make up Europe’s most unspoiled coastline. Exotic and mysterious with crystal clear turquoise waters and beautifully wooded islands, the Dalmatian coast is steeped in history. Stone towns, Renaissance palaces and fortresses dot the landscape of olive groves and vineyards. An elegantly appointed 100-foot classic sailing yacht equipped with a full fleet of kayaks is the finest way to explore this world of picture-perfect beaches, rock-bound coves and tiny islets. Our “Mothership” kayaking expedition departs from the incomparably beautiful and romantic medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lord Byron called Dubrovnik “The Pearl of the Adriatic.”
Cruising the islands of the Adriatic, we daily anchor to launch the kayaks. You will paddle the warm azure waters along dramatic cliffs, explore sea caves and swim at pocket beaches accessible solely by kayak. You will be met at the end of the day by the smiles of our yacht’s crew and come back aboard to cold drinks and a beautifully set table of Mediterranean cuisine – true luxury kayaking.
Making landfall at small outer island ports, you go for short hikes to historic fortresses and meander through timeless Venetian villages, stopping to sip coffee or dine at small sidewalk cafés draped in bougainvillea. The trip finishes in Trogir, a charming ancient town with a profusion of Renaissance architecture and also a World Heritage Site. Discover the beauty of the Adriatic Sea on this many-faceted kayaking trip filled with delightful surprises.
