Sea Kayaking Week - Vis island


Day 1:     Airport – Split – Vis
Transfer from the airport to the town Vis on the island of Vis, accommodation, and dinner.

Day 2:    Vis- the Green cave – Rukavac  (paddling distance = 16 km)
In the morning we set off in kayaks from the port of Vis to the lighthouse Stončica. We stop for a short break and swim in the sandy bay Smokova. Then we continue rowing to the small island of Ravnik where we enter the Green cave in our kayaks. Shortly after this visit we come to the small village Rukavac for a lunch and accommodation.

Day 3:    Rukavac – small bay Stiniva – rocket base – Komiža  (paddling distance = 19 km)
We paddle along the wild southern side of the island to Stiniva, one of the most ravishing small bays in the Adriatic. We rest on the pebbly beach surrounded by high cliffs, which create sea gate, not more than a few meters wide. After Stiniva we go to the cape Stupišće where we visit a deserted rocket base, underground tunnels and blockhouses and where we have a lunch. After lunch we enter Komiža, the old fisherman’s port on the southwestern part of the island. Accommodation is in Komiža.

Day 4:    Around the island by van
We drive around the island by van and visit its sights. We visit the fishing museum, have lunch and relax...

Day 5:    Komiža – the Blue cave – the Bear cave – Porat   (paddling distance = 18 km)
The next two days we spend in the local waters of the island of Biševo that has no more than 15 permanent inhabitants. We row to the Blue cave, the best-known sea cave at the Adriatic. After we visit the cave, we consume our packed lunch and continue rowing to the Bear’s cave, which spreads 96 meters deep into the centre of the island. At the end of that cave there is a small beach, one of the last sanctuaries of the monk seal, an animal that is probably extinct today. Accommodation is in the village Porat on Biševo.

Day 6:    Porat – the beach Izvori – Komiža  (paddling distance = 12 km)
While the whole group is still asleep, Dado and Pino, two fishermen from Komiža, throw the net so we could have fresh fish for lunch. Then we leave Porat in our kayaks and meet the fishing boat to help them lift their fishnets. The catch is almost always sufficient to prepare lunch after the rowing to pebbly beach Izvori in the bay of Komiža. Accommodation is in Komiža.

Day 7:   Komiža – Vis – Split – Airport
Transfer from Komiža to the airport.
