No other boat delivers such an intimate encounter with a sea as kayak does.

Sitting in a closed cockpit right there at the sea level, feeling every tiny little wave, relying only on your own personal endurance to make it – kayaking faces you with both sides of sailing the seas. The meditation and the excitement.

But also takes you places. Hidden lagunas for a picnic refreshment, cliffs to climb up the deep water solo style, cliffs to dive from, turguoise seabed to snorkel around. Also, a beach restaurant serving local specialties made from local ingredients, make it a meat or make it a fish. Even make it a vegeterian.

We take you all this places in a single day. From early in the morning till sunset blushes the sky. So it's worth mentioning that this tour is designed for those who prefer the whole-day-adventures. The route is long – approximately 15 nautic miles – the sun is strong, no shade to hide and paddling -though much enjoyable indeed - is a hard working activity.

ADV is there to help you of course, the tour itself is adjustable to your own physical and mental fitness – we can shorten it a bit, we can exclude activities you don't feel strong about, we can take more rests and focus on relaxing - but, in case these informations give you any selfdoubts, please reconsider our half-day kayaking 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?

Meeting 9:00

  • We meet at Rtina Miočić bay for a welcoming coffee.
  • Take care to bring your own suncreamsomething 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.

Paddling 10:00

  • 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.
