      Great experience
      Super friendly, helpful advice, everything worked very smoothly. We rented a sea kayak and spent a few hours paddling around the different islands, stopping at beaches. Unfortunately this late in the season the beach bars were all closed, but the solitude was great.

      Stunning tour of the islands with a fun guide
      Marco was a great guide. It was fun to be in someone else’s safe hands and to be taken to some absolutely stunning spots, beaches, bars, restaurants, snorkelling without having to do any planning. And we felt pretty proud of ourselves for all the kayaking. Marco even helped us spot a baby octopus and we had interesting chats about life, tourism, politics.

      Great experience with competent and friendly crew
      There are lot of companies who want to take you to the Blue Caves. Kayak & SUP Hear is probably the best. People in the office give you honest advice what to do and what to avoid, their boat was spacious and well maintained which matters when the sea is a bit rough and the crew (Frane and Petr) was very helpful AND competent. They gave us lots of useful info, but also made sure we were safe at all times. The Blue Cave is definitely worth the tour, but the Green Caves not at all (which we were told in advance). We still went there and as the entrance was free this time, we were able to swim in the Green Caves. But you need a lot of imagination to find the light green spot! Overall a fantastic trip with a great company! Highly recommended!

      Went above and beyond
      Hired a SUP board for an hour. There was a well organised space to store stuff whilst on the water and the guys were super helpful and gave me much more help/instruction than expected. Nice location a bay up from the main Hvar port, 15 minutes walk along the promenade.

      Fun kayak experience, and GREAT staff
      We rented a double kayak for a couple of hours in early/mid afternoon. Because the sea looked choppy, the staff were initially concerned about our desire to go out, but after they were assured that we’re experienced kayakers, they set us up quickly (including providing a dry bag and waterproof watch) and gave some tips. We had a grand ol’ time, enjoying the rough water and knowing it’d take more time and effort to go against the current. But of course, returning to the beach was much easier with the wave and current in that direction. All in all, our overall experience was elevated due to the staff – different members served us before and after, and each person was so friendly and helpful. (One or two were trying to squeeze in a late meal after being busy for 7-8 hours but still, they dropped their sandwiches to help whoever needed it.) Rental prices were very reasonable. We weren’t guests at the hotel and actually sought out this company – they did not disappoint. We highly recommend!

      Great Experience
      The guys at Kayak and SUP Hvar were amazing. They helped us plan our full day rental of a sea kayak and even agreed to meet us before theor official opening time to give us a better (calm) time to cross to the islands. They watched the weather and were prepared to escort people back if they needed. The islands were beautiful, we discovered some great spots!!

      Amazing
      We kayaked out to the islands near by and they gave us all the equipment we needed like snorkeled, dry bags, and a map just in case. They were very helpful and made sure we were safe. It was really scary paddling out that far but it was the best thing of the whole trip. They did only take cash though so make sure you have enough.

      Amazing Guides and incredible experience
      This nighttime SUP tour was so cool and surreal! The guides were very funny and kept us entertained the entire 2 hours. The bay/ocean part of the tour was awesome! The river portion that went through a neighborhood was not all that scenic - I would have preferred more time out in the bay.

      Fun kayaking and worthwhile
      Very enjoyable day kayaking across the bay to a beach with stop for lunch. The guide was knowledgeable and flexible. The company was responsive suggesting we go a day later to avoid the winds. Everything went smoothly

      Highlight of our holiday!
      We (5 adults) booked an 8 hour kayaking session without a guide. We turned up 2 hours late (12pm) and they didn’t mind at all. They provided all the equipment and gave us a map with recommended stops, given we only had 6 hours at this point. We followed the recommended route and it was beautiful! The sense of adventure, going out on our own across the sea, was unmatched. If we came back to hvar this is the first thing we would book. The wetbags are great and fit a change of clothes + valuables, and best of all they work - we found this out after capsizing. Excellent all round

      10 stars out of 5 ...
      These guys are great! I booked to go with a friend and she bailed (she preferred a massage :)) they noticed I was a bit nervous about going out alone so the owner took me out for the tour I booked with zero extra charge for the private tour (usual minimum is 3 people)! He stopped often to check how I was doing and see if I needed a break and what I wanted to do... Such a fun day!

    We found this company online and we decided to call them. We were being welcomed by Joško and he provided us with all the equipment (all the equipment is new and in good condition). He gave us all the recommendations about Paklinski islands (hidden bays and places to eat). I worked as a sea kayaking guide in Dubrovnik but service and offer here is on another level. Alongside that, landscape and sea is magical. If you're looking for place to rent a kayak or to go on the tour, this is the place!!

    All the best from Domagoj.

    We rented SUP boards two times. Being beginners Josko gave us good advice for starting and even met us on the water for further help.
    On another occasion we got kayaks and were well prepared with a map and exact details on the wind and waves around Pakleni Islands. We got very good recommendations for nice beaches and enjoyed the day very much. Josko made us a really fair price and we felt very safe on our excursion. Thank you very much!

    Amazing time! The guide is clear and tells you everything you need to know. You get to kayak between all the island yourself and the guide is great at suggestions. So much fun and so nice to be able to explore the islands yourself! Would recommend to everyone!

    The kayak experience is one of the best and most fun activities you could do on Hvar. We went to perna secluded beach, swam in the blue water and enjoyed the most amazing scenery. Stopped for lunch on zdrilca bay and then got caught in a rain dump which was so much fun the kayak in.

    The equipment is as new and top quality. Staff friendly and helpful. Thank you Josko & Jasa

    Best experience of the holiday so far, rented the kayaks from 10-6PM and explored the nearby islands as guided on our map by staff. Had so much fun kayaking and we also got snorkel gear and dry bags for all of our stuff! We were beginners but managed all of the route with no disasters. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Hvar, great value for money!!

    Great experience with provision of kayak, wet bag and snorkeling goggles. Very nice staff advising route, reminding us about safety crossing the channel and checking on us if we have enough drinking water with us.
    Spend around 3 hours kayaking and stayed on one of the nearby islands to have lunch. Beautiful beaches and crystal clear water.

    We absolutely enjoyed our self-guided kayak tour in Hvar. We were prepped on safety with a very engaging young man who answered all our questions and concerns before we left. We were given a suggested route of things to do and see. Even though it was a windy day, we had a blast!! Snorkeling in different areas was beautiful. What an adventure!

    After the clear instructions of the crew we started to kajak. When me and my girlfriend were on the sea I realised I forgot my medicines again sea sickness. At some point you have to cross sailing routes for boats which caused some waves. These made me feel sick pretty quick.

    After approximately 30 minutes we returned. The two people that where present where very understanding, relaxed and helpful. They even offered me different alternatives. That was really kind. Really nice, pure people with the heart in the right place.

    One of the best experiences of our holiday in Hvar. 30mins kayak across the channel to another island with fabulous beaches and restaurants. Then another 30mins around to a private beach! Fantastic. We left at 9:30 and returned at 5pm. Map and instructions provided and the kayaking gear and life jackets were good quality. Thank you 😊

    This was so fun! The crew does a great job briefing you before you leave and sharing all the best places to visit. Go as far or stay as close as you want. It’s nice to be free to travel at your pace and see the things that interest you. Everything was closed on the islands this late in the season, so definitely bring water and snacks if you plan to spend the day.
