About Us

Sea Kayak Croatia was founded in the winter of 2004 and started operating longer trips in the summer of 2007. Meaning we have more than 11 years of experience in this business! We live on the beautiful Rab Island but our playground is the entire Adriatic Sea. In the world of mass tourism, we are not interested in satisfying the masses. That's why our group sizes are smaller (4-10 people) and our guides are only local boys who know the area well. Tours are adjusted to every level of ability, from beginners to more experienced paddlers. Join us on our "relaxploration" tours where we present the best our country and people have to offer.
