Kayaking Kornat Islands
November 13, 2008 at 5:16 am #15125
We are planning a three week paddling trip in the Kornat area. The nearest campgrounds (that I know of) are located on Murter – that is way too far for day paddles to Kornat area. What is the most practical way to handle this? Is island hopping possible there? We will be equipped for overnight camping.
This is from our last trip to Gulf Islands – BC.

Difficult one. Try local private accomodation, rooms, sobe. Wild camping is against the law. Perhaps you can rent boat andsail around? Sorry, I am not sureNovember 14, 2008 at 1:59 am #16522
Sunfun, thanks for quick reply.
If we decided to hire a boat, what could we do in the area besides sailing and kayaking? Could we at least go to the shore for a hike? Is fishing allowed?
Another question is about the weather. How warm the water will be in the early September and how serious is the wind?
Thanks.November 16, 2008 at 10:31 am #16525
here are the visitors rules for the Kornat island, http://www.kornati.hr/eng/visitors/rules.htm which should be quiete helpfull.
Weather in early September is normally very good around 25-27 degrees and water is very nice temperture.
Wind is normally not a problem at that time of year.
for further informationion regarding kayaking you could maybe contact Shane at http://www.lifejacketadventures.com they do tours several times a year, normally always in September.

Morten, thanks for quick response. The info looks helpful. My understanding is that the islands have some acommodations available, but those are being handled by a touristic agency in Murter. I have hard time finding that particular agency. Any ideas?
Thanks. GregNovember 17, 2008 at 7:19 am #16532

A three weeks in Croatia is enough time to paddle and explore.You are lucky to have that time.The day trip to Kornati is useless as you need around two hours of paddling from Murter to Kornati and two back.My suggestion is to paddle toward Zut island and than from there you can explore Telascica Bay on Dugi otok and cam on the Levrnaka islandin Kornati.from there you can explore the whole area.You can see some details on my web site http://www.sea-kayak-kornati.com or http://www.seakayak.hr – I’m sorry for advertising on this pages but I’m not offering you to take my trips but just to see from our itinerary what can be done there.You are welcomed to ask me anything on my private mail at email@example.com
