If you're in the area I highly recommend this experience. We had a superb time, and definitely coming back next year. Ivan is a great instructor, and a great guy as well. Paddle surfing was better than I expected, and we like it more than kayacking now. Also, the lakes are gorgeous! It's very peaceful with barely any people, and the scenery is just amazing. 5/5

Great experience. It was our first time stand up paddle boarding. Ivan is great instructor and host. He described everything clearly so we catch up quickly and were able to enjoy tour, he also told us a lot of interesting facts about Baćina Lakes area which is absolutely beautiful. We paddled, swam and relaxed in Chill zone. I highly recommend! ;)

It was a unique experience. Stand up paddling was quite easy to learn and the guide was very experienced. The guide had also a lot of knowledge and nice stories about the environment and the history of it. We also enjoyed the break in the beautifull place with the fruitand the drinks. So it was an unforgetable experience for the whole family.

What a cool tour! We did a big loop tour on two or three lakes. We swam, relax, swam, we talked. :) It was a perfect relaxing program. The water was smooth, so padding was easy, though I tried it for the first time. I heard many interesting things about the neighborhood and about the lives of the guys. Both are great people. I hope I'll meet you them again. Next time I will go to windsurfing tours with them. The paddles are good quality and we enjoyed the chats too. We strongly recommend :) Thank so much!
