Kayakers who venture to Koločep are rewarded with a sweeping vista of steep cliffs that rise abruptly from the sea, revealing dramatic wind-carved caves. Visit the island’s two small settlements, hike its shady walking trails, and fill your dry bag with homemade jams, dried herbs, candied fruits, and virgin olive oil purchased from a local family. Paddle to an unforgettable lunch at a charming seaside restaurant in one of the island’s small settlements. Highlights include snorkeling in Blue Cave, swimming in a secluded cove surrounded by towering cliffs, walking through pine forest and citrus groves, feasting on grilled sea bass or steamed mussels, and paddling home with some tasty Koločep Island delicacies.

A crossing and full circumnavigation of Koločep island is roughly four to five hours of kayaking: 2 to 2.5 hours in the morning, a leisurely break for lunch, swimming, and island exploration, and 2 to 2.5 hours kayaking back to Zaton Bay in the afternoon. In the case of unfavorable weather or rough seas, the itinerary may be shortened to the crossing from the mainland, paddling a portion of the island’s coastline, and more time to walk and relax on the island.

What To Bring

Drinking water, sun protection (sunscreen hat, sunglasses), and money for lunch. A towel and camera are optional. Wear a bathing suit with clothes over. AKT supplies all of your kayak and snorkeling gear, including aqua shoes for kayaking, swimming, and walking on the rocky shoreline. We supply dry bags for your personal items (wallet, camera, clothes, towel, and phone), which stay dry in your dry bag stored in your kayak bulkhead compartments while you are kayaking. These items are available while you are on the island. In cooler weather we supply waterproof paddle jackets. You may want a set of dry clothes for the return drive. On Koločep you have time to hike, swim, snorkel, explore small villages, cliff-jump, relax, and eat lunch.
