Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We support the slogan: Help Us Keep the Adriatic Clean.Our guides emphasize on the importance of leaving the environment as it is. We observe marine life but we do not disturb it. We direct our travelers to local private accommodation providers. Overnight in private accommodation enhances the visitors’ experience, since they get an opportunity to be welcomed by a local host and thus get better insight in everyday life of local people on Croatian islands.

Also, in this way our travelers are contributing to the local economy. While kayaking we stop for lunch in local restaurants. Thus the guests have an opportunity to taste some of the typical specialties of the region and at the same time help local economy. Food in the local restaurants that we visit during our sea kayaking trips is produced organically where possible. Those are family owned restaurants that are supplied with fresh fish from local fishermen and vegetables from local farmers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Aside of the kayaking which was clearly the main part of our trip, meeting Josep
(kayaking guide-hope I’m right) he taught us so much about Croatia’s history, culture and his background. It was very personal and amazing to learn.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Take cameras, video cameras and snorkelling equipment. The kayaking
and sights are breathtaking

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I hope so, I’m always keen to try and eat traditional local cuisine,which was first
class, and opted for guest house instead of a hotel and it was fantastic and
personal.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I’d do it again tomorrow, simply stunning country and trip, and everyone I’ve dealt with be it responsible travel or the operator have been amazing and helpful.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Lots of variety due to unpredictable weather. We got a hike around Lopud with wonderful lunch at local small holding. Had a very friendly guide and some good kayaking out to the neighbouring island. When rained off one afternoon we
were treated to the hotel spa.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


When booking through a local tour company ensure that the company have personally checked out the accommodation. Our initial room was not up to standard with very poor bathroom facilities. The firm were responsive in moving group to much better accommodation but the disruption should have been prevented.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes as we stayed in local private accommodation, ate in local restaurants and visited a local farm. We used local public transport and kayaking does not use petrol

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


In spite of mixed weather, lovely experience, good company, freindly local people. Would definitely do it again.

Visiting an isolated farmhouse for a home-grown dinner

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Be aware that if the conditions aren't suitable the kayaking is cancelled. We had only 2 days of kayaking of a planned 3 days. We did some hiking on the non-kayaking day.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


It helped provide employment for local people and sale of local produce.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Enjoyable but disappointed that we couldn't kayak every day.

Read the operator's response here:

Dear Mrs Spence,

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your kayaking tour with us. If the
weather conditions do not permit, instead of kayaking we organize an alternative
activity.Your group had 10 members and both of our experienced guides who were in charge
of the group evaluated that the sea was too rough to paddle on of the days so we
organized a boat trip to the island of Kolocep with lunch.
Unfortunately the weather is something that we can not guarantee for 100% and safety is
our prime concern.

Sea kayaking around the Elaphiti islands, just beautiful with crystal clear seas plus the flexibility of the team, they were amazing accommodating to make sure each day's kayaking experience was the best for each person.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Make sure you take a good lip protector, the sun and sea reflection is powerful and I burnt my lips. A dry bag for your camera whilst your kayaking, because you will be stopping all the time to take photos of the fabulous scenery.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The company supports the local people and includes in the kayaking tours stops at local restaurants around the islands. Plus on our last night they arranged a fabulous meal in a local farm house where all the food was locally produced including the wine.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


First rate, the islands were idyllic, kayaking superb with the team making you feel so welcome. Top vacation

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The guides took our group to a small local farm for an all inclusive 4 course meal where we had abundant home cooked food and drink, all the meat came from the farm and the wine was also made by the family on the farm. It was fantastic!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Bring a long sleeved shirt - It's best to cover up when kayaking as the sun is so strong

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. The guides were both local and had excellent knowledge of the area and the sea. The guest house we stayed in was family run.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The colour of the water! The sea was so clear, you could see to the bottom quite easily. It was especially impressive when we went cave swimming.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


The kayaking is a little physically demanding, so a basic level of fitness and arm strength is required so that you don't find the kayaking a complete drag!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, in that the local economy benefitted from our trip. We had a local tour guide, stayed in locally owned accommodation and ate in local restaurants (e.g. not chain hotels or restaurants). I don't think there were particular environmental or conservation benefits.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


The vacation was excellent. We really enjoyed the tour and were part of a good group of people. Out lead kayaker knew his stuff, and the islands we visited were beautiful.

A knock out - all of it. Possibly to be taken to a turquoise cave when the waves were up - our guide was all up for it convincing us to go in. After paddling in the sunset, we went back to our island.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Enjoy - you will have great guidance - you will have great company. Remember to take mosquito repellent with you for the evenings.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Definitely. The guides were great taking us straight to the local people.

Great vacation!
