What people are saying about Zadar County

Great day out! Very easy instructions to find the start point, there are a couple of rafting companies all in the same area but we were told to follow the green sign with the indian in a boat. Immedietly met by a member of the team who checked us in and told us what to do next. We were provided with wetsuits and the team gave guidance on what to take in the waterproof bucket, all other belongings were left in the car. Definitely take yourself a sandwich or snack as there is a half way point where you stop to eat. At the end fruit and drinks are provided which is lovely. One member of each party travels back to the start in a minibus to get the car and then come back to get you, this takes approx 40minutes so just be prepared for waiting around. Good phone signal in the area. There are changing rooms and toilets at both the start and end.

Half Day Kayak Tour - Top Action. Procedure: At 10 a.m. take the ferry from Zadar to the island. At 11:30 a.m. you will be picked up directly at the ferry terminal and driven to the bay where you can get into the kayaks. Approximately 3-4 hours of sea kayaking (visiting two caves, cliff jumping and visiting a secluded beach). The groups are small and two guides accompany the tour (super professional and friendly the two). The water is crystal clear and the scenery is gorgeous. Absolute recommendation for the tour!
