Today there are more than 20 agencies engaged into organizing rafting on the Cetina. However, everything is more or less the same, only the price varies from 200 to 300 kuna per person. Rafting is organized from April to October.
Description of a rafting trip
The adventure starts at an arranged point of meeting where you are introduced to your guide, given some instructions about the trip and of course all the necessary equipment which is included in the price. The point of meeting depends on the agency, but it is usually in Omis or in Radman's mills (Radmanove mlinice) which is some 6 km upriver from Omis. Pick up in Split is also possible but at an extra charge.
The ride from the meeting point to the starting rafting point is some 25 minutes. At the starting point the participants get their equipment: a helmet, lifejacket, paddle and the obligatory safety instructions. In case it rains, the participants also get neoprene suits that protect them from the cold water.
Rafting on the Cetina river is divided into 3 parts: the first and the third part are relatively calm while the second part includes pretty wild waters. Rafting on the Cetina is ranged as category 2 in difficulty. This second part of the route includes abundant rapids, obstacles, waterfalls and lush vegetation which builds natural tunnels and you get the impression that you are hundreds of miles away from civilization. In this part you also get to visit beautiful caves which stretch behind the waterfall Studenci.
Once the wild waters are passed, you will stop at a point called "Tisne stine" (Narrow rocks) from which you can try out your jumping skills. Not far away from this point, there is a part where a scene from the popular American western movie "Winnetou" was filmed. From here you continue to Radman's mills where the rafting adventure ends.
The whole rafting adventure lasts 3 - 4 hours.
In order to remember this unique experience, there is photograph who will take pictures during the whole adventure which you can of course buy.
