FAQ & More

When is the best time to go?

July and August are considered Croatia’s ‘season’. It is summer during that time, and tourism is in full swing. The weather is hot, the sea is blue, and the coast is at its best. The only drawback is that it is the peak of tourist season. Everything is busy in Croatia this during the summer and the crowds can be overwhelming. The weather in Croatia varies from the north to the coast. The north has a Continental climate with temperatures averaging around 77 degrees Fahrenheit in August. The coastal areas have a Mediterranean climate and the temperature can reach as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The weather in May, June, September, and October will be milder, but some businesses may be closed.

Will I need a visa?

You will need a passport that is valid for 6 months past the end of your trip, but a visa is not required for tourists who are on trips of less than 90 days.

Do I need to exchange currency before I go?

The currency in Croatia is the Kuna, although some places will accept the Euro, you may get stung by the exchange rate. You can either exchange currency before you travel or get it from an ATM when you arrive, again watch for the exchange rate. Remember, it is never a good idea to keep a lot of cash on you while you are traveling, but in local shops and markets having some Kuna on you is helpful.

Can you cater for special dietary requirements?

As long as we are aware of your dietary requirements in advance of your trip we can cater to these.

Do I need a power converter?

Depending on where you are traveling from, you may need to bring a power converter with you. The outlets in Croatia are 220 volt outlets. The US and Canadian standard is between 110 and 120 volts.

What type of Sea Kayaks do you provide?

We use Prijon HTP sea kayaks. Some of the models we use are Kodiak, Seyak, Touryak and Poseidon. All kayaks are equipped with rudders. Neoprene covers, life vests, spry skirts and dry bags are provided. For day tours we use aluminum paddles while for the multiday programs we provide carbon paddles

 

What do you recommend for sea sickness?

If you are prone to sea sickness, make sure to talk to your physician before travelling for suggestions as to what will help. A natural and inexpensive way to combat sea sickness is ginger chews and acupressure bands.

Do I need hiking boots?

For most of our hiking trips a good trail shoe is recommended - something with a good tread on the sole but lightweight in the heat.  We provide walking poles for all our hikes if needed.
