Our guide, Helen was wonderful. She was able to share a lot of interesting and new information about Dubrovnik and the area, while at the same time encouraged and helped our young kids to experience swimming in the beautiful water. She explained the importance of staying in particular areas/out of the boat lanes, and gave us reminders of time to keep us on track. The meeting point was not obvious (opposite side of the other kayaking tours), and could have been improved immensely with a sign. The person who lead us from the meeting point was short with some of the tour guests and was not a nice way to start our adventure. This may have been a difference in humor. Thankfully, Helen made up for things with how great she was with our kids.
We had a great tour. Water was a bit choppy so we could not go quite as far but that suited us as can be hard work. The views are spectacular and this was defiantly one of the highlights of our trip. Out guide was great - we had done a walking tour the day before in Dubrovnik old town but we learnt more from this trip. A small group which makes such a difference compared to the other much larger ones!
Our guide Dan was very accommodating to our group who ranged in kayaking experience. We took breaks where he told us a lot about the history of Dubrovnik and pointed out Game of Thrones locations as well! The hidden beach we kayaked to was a lot of fun too! I definitely enjoyed my experience kayaking along the walls of Dubrovnik.
Overall, this was a fun adventure for us and a lot of teen novice kayakers. We started almost an hour late, waiting for wind to die down. It was pretty tough against the wind, but we made it to two different grottos where kids had great time jumping off cliff into beautiful clear water.
You can go out of busy Dubrovnik for a few hours. I enjoyed a peaceful village and a beach in Cavtat with a very kindly guide. Of course wine tasting in wonderful winery was perfect. This halfday tour course is very well organized to explore special places in Konavle. Recommend!
