Brilliant kayaking experience on the Dubrovnik coast! Our guide was very patient and lovely. He explained everything so well and made even the nervous kayakers feel at ease. We got a bag full of fruit and water which was appreciated! They have barrels to take your bags and photos in etc, so you don’t have to worry about your stuff getting wet. My favourite part was kayaking close to Lokrum island and then stopping at the hidden beach cave. We had a swim there and it was insanely beautiful! It can only be reached by kayak or boat so this was a special treat. Turquoise and warm waters. I just wish we could have had more time there! Definitely recommend this activity, you’ll have so much fun.

We were supposed to do the sunset kayak but due to cooler weather it was rearranged for an earlier time, the communication for this was excellent. The kayaking was amazing with our instructor Pop, my partner had never kayaked before and sometimes gets a bit nervous being in the sea, however he loved every moment of it!

Our guide was very friendly and helpful. We were also told some interesting insight into the history and caves of Dubrovnik.

Knowledgeable guides throughout the day, plenty of free time to explore the towns, Great experience
