Night kayaking & snorkeling near Makarska

Night kayaking & snorkeling is the only and unique experience of Makarska Riviera. Night kayaking by itself is a great way to enjoy spectacular views of Milky Way and stars above you and sea life underneath you. We'll snorkel under the strong diving light and explore some peculiar rock formations that are unique for the beach that we start at. Bioluminscence of the plankton is another great thing which can be observed only during the night. You'll be able to observe how plankton shines with every stroke of the paddle and during snorkeling session. At top of it, we'll discuss about the Universe a bit, try to find well known constellations and stars and learn something new about the night sky.

We had an amazing morning kayaking with Andrea and Mario on Bacina lakes. They were wonderful hosts and allowed us to dictate the pace. The views were amazing. We were amazed at the peace and tranquility of the lake.

Andrea&Marko prepared the tour professionally. Bacina Lakes are beautiful, crystal clear and away from crowded beaches. My 4 year old son really enjoyed kayaking. I recommend it to families with children.

Our family of five enjoyed a fantastic kayaking trip with Mario & Andrea. We couldn’t fault our day and we will be back! The surroundings are beautiful, the lakes warm and perfect for swimming. We learned and saw a lot; our friendly and informative guides gave a great tour with lots of opportunity to play, swim and relax too. This place is a gem and these people are too. Thank you both 😊
