Finding Family Adventures in Croatia : Sea Kayaking & Cliff Jumping in Split

Looking for a family adventure this summer with your kids? Something for everyone to enjoy?  Yet is safe but offers a little challenge too? So why not see what Split in Croatia has to offer on their combined Sea Kayaking & Cliff Jumping Adventure with Red Adventures….

Having visited Split & Dubrovnik during this trip, we’d already been amazed by the stunningly clear waters of the Adriatic as we paddled through Dubrovnik’s ‘Game of Thrones’ harbour and past the city walls… (see short video here) . But ‘Red Adventures Croatia‘ are known to be the best adventure company in the region, so how would a trip with these guys compare?

Always eager to add to our growing ‘Water Sports Adventures‘ across Europe… we’ve loved finding new family activities to both inspire and challenge our growing daughters… from ‘Stand Up Paddle’ Safaris in France to White Water Rafting in Norway. You’d struggle to ever achieve ‘boredom status’ here in Split.

Although the old city may be more expensive, visitors from the UK will notice their money goes a whole lot further here… so you ought to be able to see just about everything on offer for the price of a standard French Riviera holiday…  that includes the self guided tours to nearby islands by boat or kayak or even grabbing an adventure experience like we did!
With easy parking available on site for both cars and motorhomes, it really is the perfect place to grab a kayaking adventure on the Marjan peninsula to the west of the main city.  As ever these types of trips are only as good as the guides, and we ‘lucked in’ with the impressive Marko taking control from start to finish… When grabbing  water sports adventure, we’re quite clear about our priorities

i) Is the equipment good enough for us to feel confident that it will be a great family experience
ii) Does the company prioritise safety over adventure
iii) Has the company instilled confidence in us before we even arrive at the ‘start point’

Well, we can safely say that ‘Red Adventures’ managed all three without losing anything from what is still a high adrenaline, energetic ‘family experience’ that our kids absolutely loved!

The whole 10km+ sea kayak takes place from the Marjan Nature Reserve amidst the pine filled forests and allows an easy first 3km of paddling alongside the picturesque coastline… the water is clear, the visibility was excellent and the company even better (as we enjoyed yet another water based experience with ‘Aussies on Tour‘)



so where did we park the bus for the night?
