We were picked up from Split and driven 30mins to the Cetina River. There Heike met us and took us for the last drive up to the rafting point. There were neoprene suits and anoraks against cold, life vests and helmets. Our skipper Marin was funny and knowledgeable. He also explained how we would go through a cave (including 1m jump) while he took the rafts over rapids that we too wild for passengers and met us on the other side. There was an optional cliff jump (looked like 5m) towards the end of the course. A wonderful experience!

This was amazing. Christian was our guide . He really loves his job. He definitely knows his stuff and very funny too. We would do it again. We did cliff jumping, swimming, canyoning additionally. Such a amazing day. I fully recommend. Thank you. Take the transfer option if you are staying in split. it is like 1 hour drive.

Our favourite experience in Croatia. Rafting was very fun, not too intense but adventurous enough - it involves crossing dark caves and jumping off cliffs! Our guide was friendly, fun and professional. Can honestly recommend this activity.

I would highly recommend this trip! I had never gone rafting before and was nervous about how rough the water would be or falling out of the boat. I never once got nervous on the trip and never came close to falling out.

Christian was our guide and he was perfect! He really loves this job and made everybody enjoy it too :)
