If you are interested in spending a day at sea while visiting two of the most beautiful Adriatic islands, then this unforgettable fish picnic is just the right choice for you! Departing from Makarska, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the spectacular view while sailing to Jelsa, a small place on the island of Hvar, which happens to be the longest and the sunniest Croatian island as well as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Upon arrival in Jelsa, you will have some free time for exploring the village or simply relaxing before continuing our trip to the nearby island of Brač. Its highest peak of Vidova gora makes Brač the highest island in the Adriatic. While sailing to Brač, lunch will be served. We will dock in a small town of Bol where you will have plenty of time for various individual activities, e.g. going to a world-famous beach of Zlatni rat, certainly the most attractive beach on the Adriatic coast. After free time for swimming and sunbathing on this not-to-be missed beach we will have a boat ride back to Makarska.
Zip-line is an adrenaline entertainment in which guests descend through the canyon down the steel wire rope, secured with a belt. The adventure also includes training and a short walk in nature. During the walk, you can enjoy the beautiful, almost untouched nature and stunning views of the Cetina River canyon.

Depending on the size of the group, zip-line gives you up to three hours of unforgettable fun and beautiful nature. Before the beginning, the group goes to the training ground and each guest receives the equipment.
This tour begins in a small place called Jakiruša - Brela. The beautiful Jakiruša Bay is surrounded by the spectacular Biokovo Mountain. There is a sandy beach in Jakiruša, popular with the locals and tourists for swimming, and on the west side there is a rocky coast and one of the last untouched bays in this part of the riviera – the Vrulja Bay.
We launch our sea kayaks on the beach and paddle lightly towards the deserted sandy beaches of the Vrulja Bay. We stop to observe the submarine groundwater source which brings 50m3 of drinking water per second to this place even in the summer. Our paddle takes us to the Vrulja Beach where we take a break for swimming and snorkeling in the crystal blue waters.
