Mediterranean Seakayaking Day Tour
What to Expect?
The route takes place in the district around the bridge connecting the island of Pag with a mainland. Pag is known for it's extraterrastial enviroment, and really, the surrounding of the route is quite surreal. After we take off from Rtina Miočić - the village where ADV dropzone is at – we surrender ourselves to an open sea and coasts of bare stone with a view over the Mountain of Velebit in the distance at all times.
In an early morning while the sea is perfectly still, paddling comes as a form of meditation. The paddling and the breeding follow the constant rythm which eases your mind and transcedent your thoughts out of space.
Then, in an early afternoon, wind starts blowing slightly and the sea rises. The waves cut off the meditation and it all turns into something a bit more exciting. More adventurous we might say. The paddling gets more tough, but swinging of kayak on the waves makes it more fun.
As for the funny part, tour also includes a try at deep-water free-solo climbing, cliff diving, snorkelling and a domestic lunch at a beach restaurant. Add your own flavour, a kayak battle maybe, as long as it implies the splashing it's ok with us.
What's the Schedule?
- We meet at Rtina Miočić bay for a welcoming coffee.
- Take care to bring your own suncream, something to cover your head, clothes you can get wet in and enough food and water.
- Your guide will provide the same, but sometimes it's hard to predict someone's own gastronomical preferences for an adventure.
- According to your previous experience with seakayaking, your guide will take a short course on gear, paddling techniques, getting used to stability in a closed cockpit, launching and landing kayak.
ADV uses fully equiped Prijon seakayaks suitable for multiday voyages.
- We start paddling through our day full of adventure.
10:45 - Our first stop is Golubinka
- Artificial cave drilled in to reach a drinkable water from a spring. But it is not the cave we paddled here for. It's the cliffs surrounding it.
- The cliffs you can climb up from a very kayak itself, with no climbing gear but the climbing shoes to make it a real deep-water- free-solo climbing experience.
- Climb up the cliff, then cliffdive from the top of it. Or any height you feel like.
11:15 - Back in the Cockpit
- The waves are still not full on. We continue with paddling.
- Next stop is a beatiful beach on a small island between Pag and the mainland, an island so tiny only a herd of sheeps resides there.
- Sandy seabed makes it a good location for snorkeling in a turquoise deep. And we can have a picnic there – sandwich, fruit or a snack.
12:30 - Transit to the Island of Pag
- We paddle our way into deep, deep laguna for our furthest point – village of Dinjiška.
- On our way, you can go deep-watering again, though the wall is much more demanding this time around.
15:00 - Dinjiška is the place to have a lunch
- We chose a beach restaurant for you. Domestic food in a domestic ambient. A family business. Serving lamb they've raised themselves and a vegetables from their own backyard.
- The food is on us. You take care of the drinks.
17:00 – Paddling back home
- At first it won't be easy to get back on the tracks after a grilled lamb, but soon your enthusism will return.
- This time we'll have wind blowing in our backs so paddling back seems much lighter then before.
- We'll pass the bridge to the mainland and with a sunset on our side we'll paddle smoothly back to Rtina Miočić bay.
