About makarska kayaking tour

If you want to experience Dalmatian sunset from a different perspective then this kayaking tour is perfect for you. During the tour, we kayak along the most beautiful part of Makarska Riviera coast, between Drvenik and Živogošće. It’s full of secluded beaches and one of them will be our stop for swimming, snorkeling, and picnic. The tour is usually easy and relaxing, but it may happen that a wind will blow on a particular day thus making your tour a little bit harder. In that case, you’ll have a nice exercise and sleep like a baby on an upcoming night.

When designing our adventure tours we try to find the best spot which will provide the best possible experience. That’s how this Makarska Riviera kayaking tour was born. We chose the best part of the day too – afternoon and sunset. You’ll see that there is nothing better than to kayak and look at the fading sun hiding behind the horizon. Truly the scene to overwhelm your mind.

Makarska Riviera stretches from Brela to Gradac and, along with crystal clear sea, it’s full of other wonders too. We believe that the best way to explore the coastline of Makarska Riviera is by kayaking. You have the option to stop any time, to step on any beach you like, to jump out of the kayak any time you want to. That already sounds like a perfect experience. Add a crystal clear sea to it, dive beneath the surface, enjoy the views of Biokovo mountain and you have a dream vacation.

This kayaking tour covers only the small portion of Makarska Riviera but we believe it’s one of the most beautiful there is. Our main goal was to find a stretch of coastline that is far from inhabited places. It’s hard to avoid every place like that but on this tour, we managed to narrow it to only one – Zivogosce. Everything else is pure and mostly untouched nature. We kayak along many secluded beaches, we stop whenever we want to, we truly enjoy every second and end our tour in the sunset.

Please note that it’s not always possible to have a perfect sunset because the weather can be unpredictable. That’s why we always look at the weather forecast just to know what to expect during the kayaking tour. All this info is shared with you so you can decide if you want to reschedule or cancel the tour. But even the sunset not being present in its most beautiful form, this kayaking tour is an absolute experience of Makarska Riviera.
