Explore the natural beauty of the island of Dugi Otok on a half-day kayaking adventure from Zadar. Delight in the white sandy beach of Veli Žal, and swim in a hidden cave. Begin your tour by boarding a ferry at Gaženica port in Zadar and cruise for 1.5 hours to Dugi Otok. Admire the beauty of the magical Zadar archipelago on the sunny deck during the ride. Upon arrival in Brbinj, Dugi Otok, meet your guide in front of the ferry, then take a 15-minute ride to Veli Žal. Once at the beach, choose how you want to spend the first part of your adventure. Soak up some rays on the beach, go for a swim, explore the surroundings in a kayak by yourself, or join your guide on a ride around the island of Mezanj. 2 hours later, transfer to another bay where the real kayaking adventure starts. Paddle out in your kayak with a certified local guide, and try cliff jumping, swimming, and diving in an astonishing cave that changes color depending on sun reflection/the angle of sunlight.
