Stand Up Paddleboard the Dalmatian Coast

Stand Up Paddleboarding

You’ll meet your host in Split town centre and drive to your camp next to the Adriatic Sea. Settle in and explore the coastline before heading off at sunset for a moonlit paddle. Your steed for the night is an LED board that lights up the deep beneath, giving you a unique perspective of the tranquil Dalmatian waters. Head back to base and get a good rest ready for more adventure tomorrow.

Day 2

Today you’ll make your way to the former pirate town of Omiš and start your paddle down the emerald-green Cetina River. Glide through fast-moving waters and narrow canyons, past mountains and through untouched nature. Stop before you get to the sea and explore Omiš and the canyon from above, then while away the rest of the day relaxing back at camp.

Cetina river tour and night time Glow SUP trips were fab and definitely worthy of five stars, totally amazing experience. Unfortunately we had bad weather on day 2 which cancelled our day 2 activities but we didn't get an alternative proposed and it seemed a bit disorganised- I would have expected a bad weather activity as it would have been cheaper to book the two tours we did directly with the operator.

Ceri(October 2019)

Loved everything. The trip was fun, the scenery incredible. The hosts were great - relaxed and flexible. The trip was perfect - it feels like I’ve been away for much longer than a couple of days.

Manon(October 2019)

Everything was great.

Jane(October 2019)

Friendly, professional, fun, great day one.

Laura(October 2019)

Beautiful paddles, great guys. Wished it could have been a couple of days longer.

You couldn't hope for a nicer set of lads leading this tour. Advise ensuring if you want private accommodation for the overnight.

The river trip and night time SUP were awesome. The scenery was spectacular.

Jennifer(September 2019)

I had an amazing time, the guys were great, the location superb, the nighttime light trip was inspired. I might just be back for some more!

Kate(September 2019)

The guides were great from the get-go, really encouraging us to roll our sleeves up and gain confidence. The boards without being pushy. The variety between trips was great too, gave a broad all-round introduction to SUP.

Mhairi(June 2019)

Really chilled, amazing scenery, the guys did a great job getting everyone standing!

Chris(September 2018)

It was relaxed but the great fun vibe, excellent hosts, beautiful surroundings. They taught me how to paddleboard from scratch in a few minutes, and went out of their way to help whenever it was needed.

Dave(September 2018)

Ante and Marino were great hosts and the whole experience was amazing!

Helen(June 2018)

Activities, food, location were great. Good apartment and transport to/from the airport. Very considerate, caring hosts - I dropped my phone in the river and they went out of their way to retrieve it!

Michelle(May 2018)

The hosts were great, very flexible, great at encouraging our progress. Wonderful patient teachers and they had a great sense of humor.

Deon(May 2018)

Both Hosts were very knowledgeable and happy to help with any questions which we did have. All three tours were different and provided a unique experience. The campsite was exactly as imagined and was very relaxing. Both hosts were helpful on the paddle boards and also in giving suggestions for things to do around split and even the whole of Croatia.

We partner with the World Land Trust to ensure this trip achieves Net-Zero emissions. We also support their Buy an Acre programme, helping local communities to buy and protect natural habitats in perpetuity.

What's the number?
It works out on average at 58kg of CO2 emissions per person, including all local transport, accommodation, food, activities, guides, staff and office operations.

The only thing it doesn’t include right now is flights and travel to the destination. We do make an overall estimate across all our customers separately, but as we don’t book flights, have customers from all corners of the world, and no way of reliably knowing their travel plans, we simply can’t include an individual number in the figure on display here. We’ve got a goal to fix that, so that when you book, there is a way to measure and mitigate the carbon emitted by your flight too.

But what does the number mean?
Yep, hard to picture eh? To give you an idea:

  • Driving 1000miles/1609km would be approx. 281kg of CO2 in an average car (or 140.5kg per person if there was 2 of you in it).
  • A return economy class flight London - New York would be approx. 1,619kg (1.66 tonnes) per person.
  • 10 trees in a temperate forest are estimated to remove approx. 250kg of CO2 from the air in a period of 5-10 years.

What are we doing about it?
Our trips are relatively low-carbon by design, and we're working with all our hosts to develop long term carbon reduction plans. We partner with the World Land Trust to ensure this trip achieves Net-Zero emissions. We also support their Buy an Acre programme, helping local communities to buy and protect natural habitats in perpetuity, ensuring the protection of the reserve and its wildlife.

Want to know more?
Amazingly, no international travel company has ever publicly published their carbon measurements before, as far as we know. We believe that must change, quickly. So we’re openly sharing the method we used in the hope that other companies will be able to more easily follow suit and build on what we've done so far. You'll find it all here.

No SUPing experience is needed. Stand Up Paddleboarding offers a fun way to explore on the water, with the added benefit of a full-body workout. With only a little instruction, most beginners are able to stand up and start paddling shortly after taking a SUP out for the very first time. The water might be calm and flat but you still need a moderate level of fitness and the ability to swim to enjoy this trip to the full.

Sure can! Over 50% of our travellers travel solo, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people.

The sun is usually shining on Split, with temperatures ranging from 13-18˚C in spring, and highs of 25˚C in summer.
