Day 1Trogir - Jelinjak - Drvenik Veli

First day of our adventure we will start by picking you up from your place of arrival (bus or train station, airport or other location arranged in advance) and take you to the starting point of our tour.
Once on the start, you will meet your guides who will introduce you with the gear, route, micro climate and of course safety on the sea. After this you are ready to embark onto this great adventure.
The tour will start from Okrug Donji and you will start paddling west passing on your way numerous reefs. As we reach a small beach on the islet of Kluda, we will have a break with an opportunity to snorkel and swim. After refreshments, we will continue our tour towards Drvenik Veli and its only village where we will be based for the whole duration of the tour.

Day 2Drvenik Mali circumnavigation

Second day after breakfast we will go to explore our neighbor island Drvenik Mali. This small island is important part of Trogir archipelago and it has unique charm with its great beaches and a small fisherman village called Borak. During this exploration we will have a break to swim, snorkel, hike on the island or just relax on one of the most beautiful beaches in this part of Dalmatia called Vela Rina (transl. the great sand).

Day 3South shore of Drvenik Veli

Today we will explore our base island, Drvenik Veli, and start by heading west along its coast. On the way we`ll see lots of small coves and beaches with interesting and amusing formations of limestone rocks.
As we reach the south side of the island, we will find an amazing blue lagoon Krknjasi where we will stop and rest in this amazing place of nature. Krknjasi is one of the most popular nautical bays on the whole of Adriatic Sea with two islets enclosing the sandy bottom bay. The combination of crystal clear sea and sand gives the lagoon an amazing turquoise color.
After a relaxing afternoon we will leave our kayaks here and have a 45-60 minutes hike back to our base on the other side of the island allowing time for a great sunset view from the top of the island.

Day 4Island Solta & Blue lagoon

Today we will paddle to the Maslinica village on the Island of Solta. Maslinica together with its archipelago presents one of the most interesting places on Solta. It is different from Drvenik Veli and Mali allowing you to visit some of the olive oil and honey manufactures or some local artists’ exhibitions. In the middle of the village is a 17th century Marchi brothers’ castle.
Upon our return from Maslinica we will have a farwell dinner.

Day 5Drvenik Veli - Kluda reefs - Trogir

After breakfast, we`ll pack and offer you two options: to have relaxing kayaking back to the mainland or take a ferry to Trogir from where we`ll transport you to the airport, bus station or other desired destination in the area.
