I went on this kayak trip on October 18th. It was a clear sky with very calm water. Kayaking beneath the walls of Dubrovnik was an amazing sight and one that you otherwise don't get unless you're out on the water. Kayaking along he cliffs and then around Lokrum island was a nice 3hour trip. I'm in my 30's and would consider myself somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate kayaker. I found this trip to be a comfortable workout, but depending on your experience and especially the weather, this may be different for others. My guide was from Adventure Dubrovnik and her name is Tonka. She was a SUPERB guide! Extremely knowledgeable. Out of the 3 hours on the trip, we spent at least 2.5 hours talking about the history, geography, wine, and culinary traditions of Croatia as we paddled. I love all of those subjects and Tonka was willing to indulge my curiosity. That was probably the best part - learning so much while kayaking in a beautiful place.
If you're looking for a different way to experience Dubrovnik and love a bit of activity rather than just reading a guide book, then this is the trip for you. My husband & I chose a very hot day to escape the city. The guides from the very beginning were helpful, especially as we were complete kayak novices. This trip had everything, a bit of activity, but not too much, wonderful views, interesting facts from our guides, cooling sea, rest stops with the ability to swim (but for my non swimmer husband, it wasn't required) - they even threw in a nice lunch! I think it was a really good duration too - long enough to feel like you'd got good value for money & actually achieved something, but not so much you were exhausted. Honestly I loved it so much I'd definitely go again. I didn't see anyone in our group who didn't enjoy themselves and it was all very well organised and easy for us.
Me and my friends decided to do the kayak tour to get a new perspective of Dubrovnik and to try something a little adventurous. We did the 10:00 trip and absolutely loved the three hours we got to spend in the water. Our guide Edin was so amazing and it was a joy talking to him. He was very helpful and interesting to talk to. The tour itself was incredible. The nature was gorgeous and we stopped at two caves. We even got snorkel masks at one of them and got to see fish and swim. The sandwich that is included was absolutely delicious. I must admit my expectations were low but everyone agreed it was the best tour sandwich they ever had. I cannot recommend this tour more. We were in Dubrovnik for two days and it was well worth it to spend time doing this trip. Will be back!!
Me and my wife really enjoyed the tour. Theo and Maida were amazing tour guides and made sure we were confortable the whole time. The guides provided a lot of information about the locations we passed through and gave us opportunities to enjoy the water as well if we wished to do so. The snack was good and water was provided so we could stay hydrated. Swimming masks were provided at the beach. Overall, it was amazing and we definitely recommend!
Sea kayaking at sunset was a highlight of our trip in Dubrovnik. A must-do. Not only was the experience a lot of fun, but kayaking was a great way to see a different side of the city (plus an unreal sunset!) Our guide, Theo, was very helpful and kind. He also struck a good balance between having a good time and being safe. Thanks for the adventure, Theo!
