WEATHER

We closely monitor weather conditions every day and follow local forecasts. If the water around Uvala Veslo is too choppy and unstable, then we will reschedule the tour or take you paddling to a different location to ensure everyone’s safety. This usually isn’t an issue during the high season (April-October), but it happens. Your safety is our number one priority and we have to react to sudden changes in water conditions. In case of inclement weather, we’ll notify you as soon as possible and try to reschedule immediately.

 

SAFETY

We take all the necessary precautions to ensure that everyone is safe at all times during this kayak (SUP) trip. Personal flotation devices (PFDs) are given out to everyone in the form of Restubes; a comfy, discreet pack that attaches around your waist and stays out of the way. Our routes are carefully planned around weather/water conditions, coastal rockiness, and group fitness levels. We keep a 4:1 guest to guide to ratio so that everyone has a great time while staying safe.
