    Pakleni Islands
    Stop: 4 hours
    Did you know that the Pakleni Islands’ name is often mistakenly translated as “Hell’s Islands”? Although the Croatian word “pakleni” translated to English corresponds with “hellish“, the name originally derives from “paklina”, an archaic word which refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships that was harvested on these islands. Kayaking is an excellent way to explore and discover the chain of 14 untouched Pakleni islets that are approximately 10 km (6.2 miles) long, with a very indented coastline and numerous wonderful bays and beaches. The islands are mainly covered with pine trees, providing you with the shade you need on hot summer days. We use modern Sit-on-Top single and double (tandem) Feelfree kayaks fitted with deluxe seats, paddles, and all additional equipment included. Their advantage over sit-in kayaks is that they fit all types of people (including those with long legs) and, because of their open decks, there is no risk of being trapped in the kayak if it tips over. The kayaks are very stable and suitable for beginners due to their large capacity and wide bottom. We also offer dry bags (100% waterproof, 3L or 30L) where you can put all your personal belongings (towels, clothes, shoes etc.), including mobile phones, cameras and other personal items that must stay completely dry during your kayak trip. Depending on your personal preferences, the duration of the guided kayak tour, and the weather conditions, your guide will suggest the best possible route for your kayak group. You don’t need previous experience in kayaking and our experienced guide will teach you the kayaking techniques you need to be safe and comfortable in the water. Your guide on the tour will also share with you all interesting information about the Pakleni Islands, local life on Hvar and the island’s and history, kayaking, flora and fauna around etc. Due to our good location, many attractive places on Pakleni Islands, like beautiful pebble beaches (eg. Mlini beach), are less than 2 km or 40 - 60 minutes away (one way) from our center by paddling. On the Pakleni Islands you’ll be able to take a break with your guide and you can taste some local food or have something to drink in the nearby restaurant, swim or relax. The guide will also show you the best spots for snorkeling to enjoy Hvar’s rich underwater flora and fauna.

I can only recommend these guys, everything was perfect. Communication over WhatsApp was very fast and efficient, I could easily book a kayak tour. On the day also everyone was welcoming, the guide was very very helpful and showed me how to paddle right and also helped when we were tired. I had enough time to take pictures and videos, swim. Also when I came back, they were kind enough to let me rest in front of their shop by the beach because I was dead! I loved my first kayak experience, I hope to be doing it more often. Definitely book here with them because these are 100% professional and honest people who are doing what they love. I can feel it by the conversations I had with them and how they helped everyone who approached them. Thank you!

Had an amazing day exploring Hvar and Pakleni Islands with the guided kayak tour. After crossing the channel, we reached a sweet spot on one of the islands. There, we explored beaches with turquoise water, smelled the lavender fields, learned a bit about the local history and had a coffee in a cool little beach bar. We were in June and the weather was just about right.
But special props to the guys running it. Jasa and Josko were both chilled and professional during the booking while our guide Tibor was very knowledgeable and inspiring with his stories and experience. We felt very welcomed and we will come back for sure, maybe trying SUP next time! :) Cheers guys!

We had a wonderful private tour around Hvar and to Pakeleni Islands with Mr. T; he was really fun and knowledgeable, and we loved all the information he had to share about the island. He took us to a couple of gorgeous beaches in the pakeleni islands. We had a great time and it was one of the highlights of our time in Hvar. Definitely recommend!!

Thank you so much to Kayak and SUP Hvar for a great day! We went on a half day tour with Marko. He was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable, telling us about all of the different sites along the way. We enjoyed stopping at the different islands and going snorkeling. Such a fun and active way to see Hvar, and could not recommend enough!

We spent a wonderful day on a kayak trip. Our guide Tibor was extremely kind and fun and is really a true professional. Apart from kayaking itself, we also heard very interesting stories about the island and its history. Anyone staying on the island of Hvar should afford this trip. The organization was perfect and we will repeat it at the first opportunity. Thank you for everything.

First time in kayak and it has been a beautiful experience with our guide Marko. He was very nice, he brought us to Pakleni islands by kayaking. We have seen beautiful places and we had a lot of fun. We also try grappa, that was very good!
It has been the best experience of our holiday!
They also gave us masks, dry bag and life jackets.

The team here are so friendly and welcoming - I emailed a lot of questions (including sensitive ones about weight limits!) and they were answered with patience and kindness. The trip was fun and relaxed and our instructor (D) was kind, knowledgeable and inspiring. Thoroughly enjoyable.

*Wow! Just wow!*

What an experience! One of the most beautiful and authentic experiences so far. We went kayaking with our guide Tibor and the tour was about 4 hours long. We explored three divine little islands around Hvar, swam a lot, had delicious lunch and also dived a little bit. We had an opportunity to try stand up paddle boards which was pretty fun but also challenging. A day filled with so much of the beautiful island of Hvar nature, a day full of fun, full of exploring, delicious food .. all framed by great and calm professionalism and a modest price. Visibly experienced guide Tibor knew all the answers to our questions, as well as teaching us how to ride a stand up paddle. Definitely want to recommend to everyone and will repeat next year!
