  • 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.

  • Dubrovnik: 3-Hour Sunset Sea Kayaking Tour

    2. 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: Half-Day Cave and Beach Tour with Lunch

    4. Dubrovnik: Half-Day Cave and Beach Tour with Lunch

    Admire beautiful caves and the stunning sea on a 4-hour journey from Dubrovnik around Croatia's coast aboard a boat. Relax and enjoy drinks as you admire panoramic views of Croatia, picturesque caves, and beaches. Stop at the famous Blue Cave where you can jump into the water to swim or snorkel. Next, visit three more caves before relaxing on Šunj's sandy beach for an hour — one of the most famous beaches in the Dubrovnik region. Explore the open decks that allow you to feel the cooling sea breeze and while enjoying the striking blue waters of the sea that provide perfect photo opportunities.

    Great time with a small group of strangers. A short trip around Kolocep island to explore caves. The first trio of caves is riveting, with the first one giving you an adrenaline rush, a little bit of danger but all worthy when you need Instagram material. Visiting the sandy beach comes in as a second stop and followed by the blue/green cave as your last stop. There are unlimited water and soft drinks, and the lunch for the day is a school sandwich. I advise using the sandy beach visit to get some čevapi or fried squid at the beach bar.

  • Dubrovnik: 2.5-Hour Kayaking Tour

    5. 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

    6. 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.

  • Dubrovnik 2-Hour Uncertified Divers Introductory Dive

    10. Dubrovnik 2-Hour Uncertified Divers Introductory Dive

    Just beneath the surface of the Adriatic Sea you will encounter some of the most popular and abundant sea life of the Mediterranean. Don't just settle for a view from above as you snorkel, but instead head underwater with an introductory dive. This introductory dive gives you the opportunity to acquire basic diving skills, and in your group of no more than 5 people, you will have personal attention from experienced instructors. After 45 minutes of briefing, head into the water, where you will go down to depths of 16 feet (5 meters). During this 2-hour course, you will be able to get a taste of diving in Dubrovnik. There are plenty of wonderful diving sites in the Adriatic Sea, but the underwater world around Dubrovnik is one of the finest with its amazing flora and fauna. It is renowned also for its clear water and rare marine animals.

    Very helpful staff lots of time for kids with information and very well at communicating to keep calm while under water. The day we went had bad weather and diving was nearly called off but we went a head if only for 30 minutes as weather too bad but at least we got to dive and it was amazing. Marco was a real good instructor and took photos for us under the water. Great experience and has given us a bug for diving, highly recommended !

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.

Nice trip! If you want to see many medieval buildings and amazing views it will be nice choice. Prepare comfortable shoes for climbing up to islands
