  • Dubrovnik 3-Hour Sea Kayaking Tour with Snack

    1. Dubrovnik 3-Hour Sea Kayaking Tour with Snack

    This Dubrovnik Sea Kayaking Tour begins with a safety briefing at the park below Pile Gate before you head off with your guide across the channel and around the cursed Island of Lokrum. You’ll make several stops at points of interest along the way. On the 2.5-3 hour tour you’ll be accompanied by a guide that speaks excellent English and is very familiar with the coastline around Dubrovnik. Learn about the curse of the island and the history of Dubrovnik, previously known as Ragusa. Stop at one of the only hotels that was not rebuilt after the war. The hotel was the site of hand-to-hand combat between the Serbian and Montenegrin armies and the Dubrovnik defenders during the war. Spend around 30 minutes at the only beach in Dubrovnik that’s not accessible on foot, and explore a fascinating cave. You can swim, snorkel, explore the cave, relax, eat, or sunbathe. Later you'll continue back...

    Great tour with lots of interesting facts about the town. I would surely recommend it! A friend liked it so much, he did the tour twice in two days.

    2. Zrmanja: Full-Day Canoe or Kayak Trip in Kaštel Žegarski

    Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner canoeists but their scenery makes them also very exciting.

At the end of the trip optionally you can enjoy refreshments at a nearby restaurant or take a picnic on your own. Itinerary: 10:00 - Arrival to dest...

    Well organized, probably better during the beginning of summer. We missed a bit of water in September…

  • Dubrovnik: 3-Hour Sunset Sea Kayaking Tour

    3. Dubrovnik: 3-Hour Sunset Sea Kayaking Tour

    Join this kayaking adventure on the Adriatic Sea to visit Lokrum Island, Betina Cave and see the Elaphiti Islands at sunset. Your journey starts from the Old Town at the small port of Pile. After a short instructional session, you will paddle beneath the city walls until you reach the hidden cave beach known as Betina, where you will take a short break for swimming and snorkeling. From there, paddle around Lokrum Island and explore its caves. Upon your return, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a magnificent sunset in the direction of the Elaphite Islands. When you return to Pile port, some wine and a snack will be waiting for you.

    We had a great experience which ended with an amazing sunset outside the city walls. Our two guides were brilliant and gave us information on history, wildlife and life in general in Dubrovnik and Croatia. We managed to have a stop off in a cove for snorkelling and stay ahead of some other larger groups.

  • Dubrovnik: 2.5-Hour Kayaking Tour

    4. Dubrovnik: 2.5-Hour Kayaking Tour

    The starting point for this tour will be from Pile Park Beach. Everyone will receive equipment and then your guide will give you a short explanation of the basics of kayaking, paddling, safety and similar issues.  First, go around the city walls passing near the old town port and going all the way to Betina Cave, where you will have a half an hour break for a snack, snorkeling, swimming, and cliff jumping. Afterwards, continue with your tour and paddle around the beautiful Lokrum Island with several stops at caves and various bays. You will also get to explore the Dubrovnik city walls from the water. 

    Awesome experience. Beautiful sunset. Bit colder than I thought due to slight wind blowing. Slightly smaller group than some of the other tours out at the same time which I think is much better. Definitely bring watershoes as the cave's beach has sharp pebbles and rocks where you get into the water.. Unfortunately not much to see when snorkeling and only goggles available due to covid (no snorkels)

  • Lokrum Island and Dubrovnik City Walls Tour by Kayak

    5. Lokrum Island and Dubrovnik City Walls Tour by Kayak

    Make your way to Banje Beach to meet your guide and get a demonstration on how to kayak in safety. Then, paddle under the ancient fortifications of Dubrovnik's Old Town and make your way to the island of Lokrum. See the botanical gardens and the summer residence of the Austrian emperor Maximilian from the sea. Learn about the history of the area and hear about some of the mysterious legends from your guide. Kayak along the shore of the island and discover the hidden caves. Get some time to go for a swim at Betina Cave or snorkel with the amazing marine life. Enjoy the complimentary fresh fruit and drinks in the sun and take up the challenge and get an adrenalin rush on an incredible cliff jump.

    This was probably the best thing I did in Dubrovnik. An amazing experience and views of the city from another perspective.

Fantastic tour! Our guides were amazing and I’d recommend the sunset one, it’s such a fun experience. If you’ve never kayaked before this may be more challenging as it is in the ocean.
