Route details

Day 1
Drvenik Mali

Your adventure starts by meeting your guides, they are a bunch of fun guys, we are sure you will get along. After the brief introduction, they will take you to the starting point in Vinisce village. Once there you will get a detailed route introduction and briefing on the gear, kayaking technique, microclimate opportunities and safety on the sea. Nothing overly boring, but your safety is still our top priority.

After you finish with kayak fitting you are ready to start living your adventure.

Kayaking starts from a beach in the small coastal village of Vinisce located in a deep protected bay. Once out of the bay we will paddle across the channel to Drvenik Veli (Big Drvenik) island and the village of the same name. This old fisherman village unattached by tourism is still living a slow pace of life, just like you would imagine it some 100 years ago. Hidden from touristic buzz this island with only 150 people living there is a perfect first station on our kayaking journey. 

From here we continue to Drvenik Mali (small Drvenik) island to its north side and to the beach where we will have wild camping overnight. This small island is an important part of Trogir archipelago and it has a unique charm with its sandy beaches and a small fisherman village called Borak. Island second name is ”Tile” as it has so much flat and smooth rock surfaces that remind us of tiles.

A perfect lonesome beach isolated from any people with just a narrow path connected with civilisation will be our overnight location. If you are not much of cook, don’t worry, our guides will jump into that role as well, as you go through the dinner prep together, sharing knowledge underneath the million stars, we promise this will be a perfect ending of your well-spent day.

Meals: Picnic lunch, dinner.

Distance: 8 Nm.

Overnight: Unofficial camping.
