Korcula-based kayak and snorkel excursion

Get two adrenaline kicks for the price of one by signing up for this adventure-filled day trip.
Paddle through the calm seas surrounding the Korcula archipelago in a sea kayak , admiring the stunning coastline and marine life as you glide through warm, crystal clear waters.
Enjoy a whirlwind tour of dozens of alluring islets aboard a speed boat before being escorted directly to Korcula’s most secluded bays, best beaches and enchanting snorkel spots. You’ll have the chance to discover hidden portions of the island’s spectacular coastline only accessible by sea kayak.

Sea kayaking and snorkeling excursion We book the sea kayaking trip over the internet before we left the UK. The booking process was quick and easy. We were picked up from our hotel by our guide who drove us to the start point where we met the rest of the group there where about 12 of us in total. After we had a quick paddle talk and loaded our bags into waterproof barrels we set off. We first stopped off on Vrnik island to visit and old stone quarry before continuing to Badija island for some snorkeling and our guide Robert collected sea urchins and gave us the chance to try them (I wouldn't have them again but i can say iv tried them). After our sea urchin snack we headed off back to Korcula adventures base for a lunch of salad, cured meat and cheese followed by lots water melon there was also water, local wine and juice. To summarise, the trip was excellent value and really worth doing. Our guide Robert was very knowledgeable and friendly. Weather you have never tried kayaking before or like us have been kayaking for many years this trip is very worthwhile and was great fun.
Sea kayaking and Snorkelling- FULLY RECOMMEND Absolutely amazing day kayaking around the islands off the Lumbarda coast. We were collected by mini bus style taxi but a lovely man, who is the boss! He drove us to the bay and we met our slipper Andre- he was great! Amazing views from the kayak and he led us on a couple of short walks to places of interests including a quarry and fort. He also caught and prepared some sea urchins for us to try- a local delicacy apparently! At the end of the kayak they arranged for us to be returned to our hotel by speedboat- great way to finish! Fully recommend!
Sea Kayaking and Snorkelling Combo First time kayaking and snorkelling so I was a bit scared at first but my guide Roko was amazing and I felt absolutely safe! Tasted sea urchins and Roko was very kind to get more when I requested. Lunch was delish as well, especially homemade Croatian white wine and pršut. I will be back!!! 🙂
Kayaking excursion My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a morning of kayaking and snorkeling with Roko. If you enjoy tours with friendly local guides and smaller groups then choose Korcula Adventures. We kayaked from the owners home, where he also has villas for rent, to a small island with a monastery dating back to the 14th century. We explored the island and snorkeled in the pristine waters before enjoying a snack of caviar from fresh sea urchins plucked from the sea and prepared by our guide. I would highly recommend any of the tours offered by this wonderful small local company.
