Full description

This Dubrovnik Sea Kayaking Tour begins with a safety briefing at a stunning Old Town hotspot. Head off with your guide across the channel and on the seas near the cursed Island of Lokrum. You’ll make several on-sea stops at points of interest along the way. 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 rest at it's popular cave. You can swim, snorkel, explore, relax, eat, or sunbathe. Later you'll continue back along the coastline of Dubrovnik and see the area’s Beverly Hills and Dubrovnik's first quarantine zone.

A well-organised and enjoyable tour. Our guide, Andro (hopefully I have spelt this right!) was great. Very chilled out and funny. He gave us several short breaks from paddling to tell us interesting things about Dubrovnik and the local area. He was very attentive and made sure everyone had a great time. Thanks, Andro!

A beautiful, interesting, fun and unique experience. A different way to see the city walls and watching the sun set was totally beautiful. We paddled around Lokrum island before entering Betina cave, then paddled back along the coastline just as sun was setting: the perfect backdrop to the harbour and ancient walls. Our guide Nano was very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history. He kept us entertained and even offered to toast our sandwiches on the open fire which had been lit in the cave! Totally unforgettable 3 hours.

Fun tour around the coastline of Dubrovnik. Our guide took us around Lokrum Island, into a tall cave and over to a small beach for a swim and a snack. Guide was friendly and answered lots of questions, and our large group was broken down into smaller groups of 6/7 people to make the tour more enjoyable. We paddled 7-8km on the extended tour, definitely manageable for most people. Could do the tour self guided if you just hired a kayak, however you would miss out on the snippets of information about Dubrovnik’s history.
