Mill pool still water, silence but for the neat splash of your paddle, a seal feeding yards from your bow but most of all an overriding sense of peace and oneness with nature. Sea kayaking holidays do funny things to you. It doesn't help that the tortured winding coastlines beloved of sea kayakers also happen to be some of the wildest most beautiful places on

My kayak tour with Tour dust is an experience I will treasure forever. I believe Johnny is exactly the type of guide everyone hopes for on a trip like this. Upbeat, funny, enthusiastic, and an incredible level of skill in this sport. I have been kayaking for many years, but, being over 60 years old now, I certainly appreciated knowing we were in such very, very capable hands.
And the other people who took part in the trip? What a great bunch! It's hard to believe we were mostly complete strangers just one week ago. I will treasure those friendships forever as well.

A few comments on our recent trip
Organization Excellent including pick up and drop off
Our guide Amir was friendly, spoke good English, and competent as our instructor / guide, he went out of his way to give us a good holiday.
Accommodation , First island was fantastic with a friendly family, Breakfast was outstanding
second island was good although the breakfast wasn't up to the standard if the first.
Equipment was all of good quality and in good condition
overall the holiday was relaxing , enjoyable with sufficient paddling for two experienced paddlers,
the restaurants and bars produced food which was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced
we would highly recommend the holiday to friends and family
we will hopefully return again to do more in Croatia in the future
Andrew Adamson reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday on 08 July 2014
I had a great time on my kayaking trip. The transfers/transportation were right on time and well-organized, the accommodation was comfortable and the meals were just fine. Our guides, Amir and Ivan were amazing and should be recognized for their warmth, skill, flexibility and all around greatness. Our group had a nice mix of solo/couple/group travellers and we got on really well.
One thing to note is that the trip description says that no skill beyond reasonable fitness is required. I'm more than reasonably fit, but I found it quite difficult to cover the distances scheduled for each day in the conditions we encountered. So, you might consider making a note that beginners or people without significant upper body strength might find solo paddling to be quite challenging. That said, Ivan was so patient and supportive as I struggled my way through. I'd probably still be out there paddling if it wasn't for him!
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone interested in seeing a quieter side of the Croatian coast.

...earth. A Sea kayaking holiday removes you entirely from modern life and immerses you in the wilderness, yet is entirely accessible to beginners - and it is that combination that makes it like no other. Case in point, imagine yourself paddling deep in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador, surrounded by primeval rainforest, jungle populated only by indigenous communities and exotic wildlife, or sea kayaking amidst the incredible wildlife of The Galapagos Islands?
On a similar wildlife theme, you could be exploring Johnstone Strait off Vancouver by Sea kayak, camping in the amazing Canadian wilderness and getting the chance to see killer whales up close, literally. That is if you aren't looking the other way at the bald eagles hunting for wild salmon and dolphin playing in the waters. Or alternatively, paddling amidst the vast floodplains of the Selinda Spillway in Botswana, home to hippos, elephants, buffalo and sable antelope.
The scenery too is often worth the price of entry alone. Imagine yourself Paddling on Milford Sound overwhelmed by towering glacial mountains, the imposing sheer rise of Mitre Peak sat almost above you and waterfalls pouring into the sea, or exploring the sheltered sea lochs and inlets of Western Scotland where the beautiful Highlands meet the sea.
And of course, if all those glacial landscapes send a shiver down your spine there are always the pristine desert Islands & beaches of Lake Malawi or the wealth of tiny Islands in the Sea of Cortez in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico in which to dip your paddle.
Finally an apology. Sea kayaking is very much distinct from canoeing on many levels, but we have deigned to include a number of fantastic canoeing holidays in our collection of sea kayaking holidays. It isn't perfect but are you going to blame us, if, whilst browsing a sea kayaking trip in the Highlands of Scotland your attention is taken by a rather exotic and enticing canoe safari in Botswana?
