About Us

Established in the winter of 2004 as a kayak rental company, Sea Kayak Croatia expanded its offerings in the summer of 2007 to include expedition trips. With over 15 years of experience, we distinguish ourselves as more than just a typical tourist company. We pride ourselves on being a small, passionate family business with an exclusive focus on sea kayaking. Our mantra is simple: we do one thing, and we do it right – without haste, embracing the philosophy of "Pomalo," not just as a phrase but as a way of life. Beyond our sea kayaking adventures, we engage in permaculture farming at 3 Sisters Farm. On most of our trips, we incorporate our homemade products or source from local producers whenever possible. While our home base is the enchanting green island of Rab, our playground extends across the Croatian part of the Adriatic. In a world dominated by mass tourism, we are uninterested in catering to the masses. Instead, our focus lies in providing a unique and intimate experience. Our groups are deliberately kept small, and our tour guides are exclusively locals intimately acquainted with the region, deriving their livelihoods directly from the sea. Adaptable to all skill levels, from novices to seasoned paddlers, our tours are under the umbrella of our distinctive "RELAXPLORATION" brand. This brand represents our commitment to offering the finest experiences in exploration and relaxation. In the upcoming years, we plan to fully develop this brand – stay connected and follow our progress at relaxploration.com. Additionally, you can support our permaculture project at www.rab.com.hr.
