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.

This experience is amazing! the ship is magnificent & the tour along the coastline & out into the sea is idyllic. stunning views & great memories made aboard this ship! (proposal) The food on offer is tasty & of good portion, altogether great experience from start to finish! would highly recommend

Excellent tour for those who are an early birds. Ivana, the guider, walked us through the history behind and beyond the wall. She made sure that every detail was shared in such a fascinating way. So this is definitely a must-do tour if you’re exploring Dubrovnik at some stage.
