SUP and Sail Adventure - Island hopping in Croatia

SUP and Sail Adventure is a unique summer holiday in Adriatic sea combining sailing, paddle-boarding and pure relaxation!

For many, sailing itself is the highlight of their holiday experience: the whistle of the wind in the sails, complete independence, cruising past pristine, deserted bays and scenic islands.

No fixed plan, no routh, so every trip is a unique Adventure!

And with our paddle-boads we can also explore the coast up close. We’ll paddle along the Adriatic coast and visit gorgeous beaches, only to see one dramatic view after the other open up in front of us. This is the essence of stand-up paddle boarding and the greatest experience it can offer. A truly SUPerb adventure!

PADDLE-BOARD. We're going to sail longer distances between the islands and paddle-board near the coast. We’ll visit a variety of spots on our stand up paddle boards, organise SUP games, do an SUP workout at sunrise and sunset, paddle out for a night swim and go on a downwind trip for the brave on a windy day.

RELAX. The sup programme will be varied but not exhausting. If you want to simply relax on the deck, you can opt out of any of the daily activities.

LEARN. Because we’ll paddle in calm bays, the programme is suitable for beginners or anyone who hasn’t tried stand-up paddling yet. The programme also includes an introductory SUP and sailing course, which we’ll do on the first day to demonstrate the basics of both activities.

EXPERIENCE. It's not only about paddle-boarding. We're going to hike Kornati hill, explore the town of Sibenik, see the Krka waterfall, eat in local restaurants called "krčma".

We will try to adapt the programme and pace of the trip to the participants’ experience. If you’re already a skilled stand-up paddle boarder and you’d like to have a more intensive programme, please let us know this when you book sup and sail cruise and we will try to consider it.


We’ll sail in 4 or 5 berth 50 ft sailing yacht, which is fully equipped and very spacious. High quality materials and professional craftsman combine style, comfort and experience. The sailing yacht features the best sailing qualities, reliable workmanship, perfect style and practical space.


Organiser will take care for the food and drink shopping (make a menu, buy fresh and healthy food – lots of fruit and vegetables, health snacks) and prepare everything for the voyage. If you book the whole sailing yacht, we can hire a cook/hostess to prepare all meals for you. If you have any special requests, please contact us and we will prepare an offer tailored to your needs.

Who will guide a tour?

SUP and sail cruise in organized in cooperation with a respected agency that has years of experience with organizing sailing tours in the Mediterranean – Just Perfect Yacht Charter. 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!

Our yacht will be steered by a professional skipper who has been sailing since childhood and feels that he’s truly free only on a yacht. He’s dedicated to ensuring our safety, carefully monitoring the weather forecast, taking us to the best restaurants and directing the sails towards our goals.

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.

Who can attend the tour?

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

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

What about children?

They 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.
