We had an excellent kayak tour with our guide, Jay. The kayaking is well-paced, surrounded by natural beauty, and interspersed with interesting tidbits about Croatian history/culture/ecology. Jay has had a fascinating life, including working as an extra in the Game of Thrones franchise. He told us stories from the production and was even able to point out filming locations from the water, which was really cool for GoT fans like us. We spent about 45 minutes of the tour at a rocky beach, swimming, snorkeling and jumping off rocks. Jay provided wetsuits and water shoes for those who wanted them. Upon our return to shore, Jay and his boss (a lovely woman whose name I didn't catch) offered our little kayaking group beer and wine. We stayed on the docks chatting for about an hour as the sun set over the harbor. It was a really lovely experience and I'd highly recommend it for anyone staying in Split.

Really enjoyable Kayak trip with Mike who was an excellent guide. Despite the worst weather of the week & choppy waters we were able to do the full trip and had plenty of time to chat about the area, do some rock jumping and snorkelling. We never felt rushed and were able to make the most of the time out on the sea.
