Embraced by nature – make your dreams come true
The Adriatic Sea is different than the oceans. The sea is warm, limpid, clear and the tide changes are insignificant, which is why the Adriatic is one of the most beautiful, diverse and safest kayaking destinations in the world.
With a kayak on the island of Vis, you have unlimited freedom of movement, it will take you to places the boats and sailboats cannot even dream of – quite close to large rocks, underneath high cliffs, you will explore caves and relax on the beaches of countless bays.
The island of Vis is simply stunning, because of its beautiful natural surrounding, but besides the beauty of landscape, it can also amaze you with its history. Our island and coast are witnesses to the power and glory of the Greek and Roman Empires, Great Britain, Austria, the Napoleonic Legions, Italy and the Allied Army. All that history is visible at every turn. Thus, kayaking will not just be a sport or nature experience, but a cultural experience, as well.
Paddle with us! Explore the coast, find remote beaches! By rowing lightly, enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the pristine beaches.

Windsurfing is definitely the most beautiful water sport, a kind of meditation on the move, while every muscle on your body maintains balance on the bord, keeping the sail in the right position, catching the rhythm with the wind and looking for your ideal wave to jump…
Wind surfing is a relatively young activity among the locals, well aware of the wind and the weather on some parts of the island, so this sport becomes an attraction for all adrenaline lovers. A team of surfers from Vis will be happy to engage and join you on the waves towards the open sea.
If you are interested, there is a small sailing school for children and adults on the island, which offers organized transportation, equipment rental, guides and training.
