Croatia: Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast
Kayak the coast and islands of Croatia. The over one thousand sun-drenched islands of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast 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 Trogir, a charming ancient town with a profusion of Renaissance architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site
. Cruising the islands of the Adriatic, we daily anchor to launch the kayaks and paddle the warm azure waters along dramatic cliffs, explore sea caves and swim at pocket beaches accessible solely by kayak. We are met at day’s end by the smiles of our yacht’s crew and come back aboard to cold drinks and a beautifully set table of fine Mediterranean cuisine – true luxury kayaking.
Making landfall at small outer island ports, we go for short hikes to historic fortresses and meander through timeless Venetian villages, stopping to sip coffee or dine at little sidewalk cafés draped in bougainvillea and jasmine. The trip finishes in the incomparably beautiful and romantic medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, also a World Heritage Site. Lord Byron called Dubrovnik “The Pearl of the Adriatic.” Discover the beauty of the Adriatic Sea on this many-faceted kayaking trip filled with delightful surprises. An adventure not to be missed!
