Rafting on the Cetina River is a special attraction for all adventurers. A strong will and good skills are needed to ride down the foamy river. A rafting guide, i.e. skipper, will tell you how, when and how hard you must row, or when you should get into the boat and hold tightly. Guests who go through this adventure remember it for a long time and are very proud of their achievement. All the agencies offer rafting on the Cetina River.
It is believed that we know more about space than the deep ocean. Diving in the waters of the central part of Dalmatia, the Makarska Riviera, enables you to discover a small but extremely attractive part of “the world of silence”. With the development of technology and the popularization of this sport, many people have been enabled to enjoy this wonderful experience of breath-hold diving or diving with a tank. The Dalmatian underwater holds many secrets: from old shipwrecks to a beautiful underwater landscape, and those who are a bit luckier may encounter dolphins.
To fish means to gaze at the sea, to let yourself be captivated by the wide horizons, the azure sky or the shade of a cloud, soaking up the morning sun and wiping away salt from your face. To deeply inhale the freshness of the sea while not stressing about excessive and overpriced equipment. People on the Adriatic coast and islands traditionally catch fish by hand. No matter if they are fishing from the shore or a boat, they rarely use fishing rods. The best time for fishing is early in the morning or at sunrise, when you can enjoy the peace and quiet. Surf fishing at night is an opportunity to experience up close the glow and glitter of tiny sea creatures and plants that come to the sea surface at night like tiny fireflies. This bioluminescence can sometimes be as bright as faint moonlight. A multitude of small crabs and the heaving sea will keep you company on the cliff. This kind of experience could never be found near a larger town or stronger artificial source of light.
Another peculiarity of surf fishing is that, unlike fishing from a boat, it requires no special know-how or skills, which is very important for people who do not own their own boat or hold a skipper licence. However, all fishermen have to abide by the rules and regulations prescribed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management. The law distinguishes between recreational and sport fishing, and special regulations for professional fishermen are in effect. A fishing permit may be valid for one, three, seven or 30 days. These permits are available both for foreign and Croatian citizens. Certain species require a special permit and an authorised person must submit a catch report, containing accurate information, within seven days.
