The equipment we use foractivities is of the highest standards. Security is one of the most important things to us. Maximum adventurous experience and having fun in wild and unbelievable environment are the result of twelve years of experience.

“A perfect introduction to rafting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Me and my girlfriend booked a rafting tour with Adventure Dalmatia Day Tours. Our guide for the day was friendly and experienced Mijo.

At the point of departure he provided us with neoprene suits, floating vests and helmets and gave us a safety briefing. He explained that we would get splashed but there was no risk of falling into the water.

As we were the only clients for the day Mijo opted for an inflatable boat with three seats. He occupied the rear position, took care of the steering and gave instructions. We sat in front and paddled occasionally.

The tour lasted about 2,5 hours and included several rapids of category 2 and 3 (out of 6). We made stops at a small waterfall and a cobblestone beach.

We recommend the tour either as an introduction to rafting or a fun family activity. We fear though that these small rapids will not provide sufficient thrills for experienced rafters.

“Great guide and fun rafting in the rapids of Croatia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

We booked the Canoe Safari II trip with Adventure Dalmatia. Jelena took our booking and even met us off the ship - she was very nice and accommodating, so was good to meet her in person! Getting to and from the river wasn't the best, I have to admit. Took an hour each way and they dropped the 6 of us off at a gas station. After '15 min', which was actually 30 mins, they picked us up and took us another 30 mins to the river. If we would have known up front, I think we would have been less frusterated. Just let people know, and they're more likely to be understanding.

Finally reaching the river, our guide Marin (sp?), was awesome. He let us opt for the raft instead of the canoe because it didn't go as fast - thank you. Just fyi - the rafts are for 2 people, not 6. The are fun though, more fun than sharing with a bunch of people. The rapids were awesome! We went the beginning of Sept., the water was calm until you got to the rapids. I think he said the toughest one was class 3, but a 2+/3. So, the water was cold - thank heavens he gave us wetsuits. My husband was tall, so they didn't have one to fit, but since he's a manly man, he toughed it out ;-) Did I say the water was cold? Yeah. Be prepared. We're from AZ, so anything below 80 degrees is cold, so take it in context.

Was 3 hours and we were wiped. Was one of the best adventures we had on our trip in doing the rafting. We got stuck a few times, but Marin bailed us out, poor guy ;-) Thanks, Marin, for a great trip!

“If you want to explore Split, make sure it's with these guys!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

We went rafting in Split with these guys and they absolutely rock! Pick-up was from our tiny hostel outside of Split. They are experienced and fun - afterwards we bought a CD full of pics from our trip which was well worth the price. One of the best experiences I've had in Croatia, and I've had many!

“extreme canyoning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

we went one day on a canyoning tour on the cetina river.
it was very well organized. i booked online and did not have to pay anything before the trip (they just needed a confirmation email on day before)
they came and picked us up in split in front of the palace basement. the transfer lasted an hour.

the canyoning trip was very fun. it lasts 4 hours or so. we booked the extreme version, and it was physically not harder than the normal version ! the group was small (5 people) so that was very good.
you definetly have enough time to enjoy , as you have some breaks to jumps off the rocks or small cliffs.

i can only recoment this tour !

“Getting Close and Personal with Croatia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

We were looking to spend an action packed day arround Split area with two children 16 and 14 y.o. and a good friend has suggested to have a look at Adventure Dalmatia. This came out a very solid piece of advice as we have had an exciting day with canyoning , cliff jumping and kayaking. Our guide Andy was definitely on top of things, and very pleasantly wasn't bored with what he is doing.

The canyoning track is mild to easy which came as a bit of disappointment but the 'refreshing' mountain water of the river at 15 oC has made up for the lack of physical challenge of the route. The kayaks are well maintained the oars have now chips and nice handles.

The only thing to remember - as everybody here - the guys live on Med time, which is not the most precise and accurate in the world, so if you have a time constrain you need to keep your own eye on the watch. ;)
