Think of this tour as a book compared to a film – the film would be LAGO DI KORCULA tour, while this one, the book, touches more islets and beaches, takes more miles and, consequently, hours. We kayak longer although not necessarily harder but it still requires active enthusiasts due to a higher level of effort to put into kayaking. And, since it lasts from morning till mid/late afternoon, it can get windy and choppy so we definitely encourage people with previous kayaking experience to join us on this trip. How far we really go is related to the weather conditions too, but basically we do not depend on tight schedule so we can say that this tour is almost tailor made. Lunch is included.
For millennia people have sailed around Korcula to explore, conquer, trade… nowadays, these crystalline waters lure modern travellers who want to discover both history and nature of one of the most beautiful corners of the Adriatic Sea. Islets and rocks scattered between Korcula, Lumbarda and Orebic are a getaway for locals and provide little pebble beaches, clear water, more or less secluded and protected coves, Badija has a monastery, Vrnik quarries from the Roman times, Majsan hosted a villa from the same period and so on. The backdrop to this eye-pleasing scenery is the mountain of Saint Ilija towering mightily almost a kilometer above the sea level, guarding the strait between Pelješac peninsula and Korčula island.
Feeling good about this trip is what matters – our pace follows the agility and ability of the group and adapts to weather conditions. Tour always starts with an introduction to the activity and equipment, safety briefing and then we set out.
Our sea kayaking tour takes us from Korčula around the islets, with stops for swimming, snorkelling and enjoying different angles of the area that in the past witnessed some of the major naval battles, as well as, capturing Marco Polo by the Genovese fleet. Those days are gone; today it’s all about fishermen, nature lovers, modern explorers, yachtsmen and sea kayakers seeking their special spot in this magical archipelago.
Note: Itinerary depends on weather conditions, time of season – daylight hours, group size and fitness level
