Day 1: boarding a sail – boat

Our meeting point will be a marine in Zadar on Saturday at 4PM. If you fly to Zadar in the morning, you have half of the day to stroll around the city.

We will hop on a sail boat and start our adventure with sailing into the sunset. Yo-ho and a bottle of… just kidding, the pirates will be kept away 🙂

We will get to know each other, check up the wind and plan the first destination of this adventure. 

Day 2: sailing and paddle-boarding course

We will wake up in the calm morning somewhere around Kornati Island, have an easy breakfast and start our day with teaching us paddle-boarding basics. Then our sup adventure will begin, we’ll explore the beautiful coast of Croatia in breath in the relaxing summer vibe.

In the afternoon we’ll also have an introductory course to sailing – we bet you will want to help with lifting the sails, so the skipper will teach you all the basics you need to know to enjoy the ride. 

Days 3-7: island hopping and adventurous experiences

Hopping from island to island – with paddle boards or boat, exploring the coast, looking for hidden caves, admiring the mighty cliffs, sneaking into crystal blue underwater world (you can take your snorkel equipment with you), tanning on the deck, relaxing all the way. 

Although we’ll do mini excursions and change locations every day the guide will prepare new sup experiences like balance challenges, downwinding, etc.

Adventurers and adrenaline seekers will be challenged with sup surfing on the waves created by boat and trying windsupping/winging for the first time. 

We’ll stretch our body with morning sup workout and unwind with sup joga to find inner peace again – but not every day, as we want to be able to take some time off as well. 

Maybe we’ll do some hikes to catch the most breathtaking views. Maybe we’ll stroll in a small village. Maybe we’ll visit “krčma” – an authentic local Croatian restaurant.

We don’t have a strict plan, we will create our adventure and experiences along the way. 

We can promise this Mediterranean life will surely amaze you!

DAY 8: to the airport again

Hopefully there will be no tears at saying goodbye to new friends.

We will drop you off at the airport and send you home with some great memories.

We had really fun time with Spela and Iris exploring lake Bled, Soca valley and Ljubljana city centre.We learned some new skills while experiencing Slovenia’s emerald-green and crystal clear waters on a SUP board.Both Spela and Iris are really nice and professional instructors.Thanks for the great days we had!

A young, ambitious and well-organised team of yachtsmen who strive to create unique sailing holidays and doesn’t settle for anything but a perfect experience!

The SUP expeditions will be guided by a Bananaway SUP instructor with the international ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors) licence, who will guide us through bays, choose suitable conditions for stand-up paddling, carry out SUP workouts, an introductory SUP course and SUP course for anyone who wants to upgrade their knowledge.

The sightseeing SUP tours are not physically demanding and are suitable for anyone who knows how to swim, even without any prior knowledge of paddle-boarding.

Sup and sail adventure is adjusted to the group capabilities, if travellers are experienced paddleboarders, we can do longer distances (if someone is tired, the boat simply picks him/her up).

Do you wish to wear a life jacket? Just let us know before the trip.


Children are welcome, of course! They simply adore stand-up paddle-boarding!

Children over 12 years of age can join us on their own SUP board, whereas younger kids can sit at the front of their (experienced) parent’s board where they will enjoy the experience as much as if they were holding the paddle themselves.

For their safety, children will wear life jackets.
