Your first day will begin by meeting your guides. They will help you fit your kayak, provide you with detailed insight into the route you’re about to embark on. Also, they will brief you on the gear, microclimate, and, of course, safety at sea.

You will start kayaking in Trogir, more specifically the unique nature reserve nearby – Pantana. It’s famous for its fortified renaissance watermill. Continuing on to the old town of Trogir. Let your guide show you the highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, including Kamerlengo fortress, the city walls, and the beating heart of this city – its waterfront promenade (Riva).

As you paddle under many bridges around the town, you will see for yourself why Trogir is often called “Little Venice”. After the exploration of Trogir, we will then head towards the village that will serve as our base for the next 4 nights, the charming Drvenik Veli.
