Get ready for a workout! This was a great tour and a fun time - very vigorous! The guide was not the most informative or friendly, but the view was delightful!
Excellent experience. Strongly recommended. Only advice is that you need to be quite athletic to paddle all the way around the island to the cave and back. It's not the easiest thing!
An excellent activity - well organised and great fun. I would certainly do it again and recommend it to others.
The only problem we had was with the pre-booked transport back to the hotels. Drivers refused to take anyone who had wet clothes on. There are no changing facilities at the meeting point.
this was great! a definite must do! the most fun i had while in dubrovnik ! the instructors were friendly and the day was fun and exciting. The only caution is don't forget to bring a change of clothes because the transfer taxi man wont let you in his van/car if he suspects any part of you is wet!!!
Excellent way to see Dubrovnik. Well organised activity and great fun for all the family. Would recommend this.
My husband and daughter had a great time. The tour people had a office right at the cruise port so it was easy to find them. My husband was surprised to see that he ended up at the same place as all of the people that had the same activity from our cruise ship at a much better price through Viator. At the end it was hard to find the ride back to the ship and they hopped on a bus. Got a call from the tour operator saying they could not find them and wanted to make sure they got back. Thought that was nice. Would recommend!
This was a 50th birthday present to a friend & his wife. They had a fab time even though one of them was a little apprehensive about sea kayaking. Pack blister plasters or gloves for hands if you are an energetic paddler!
Loved it! Our guide was great, the distance and time on the water was perfect!
Incredible views! Good for beginners! Not difficult and lots of fun! Guides were helpful! Definitely well worth it! We also stopped in a cove for swimming and some snorkeling. Highly recommended!
Absolutely amazing! I had never ever done this before, but would now gladly do it again. There was so much fun mixed in with beautiful sights along the way. Very safe and understanding instructors too!
Instructors were very good and explained everything to us before setting off and helped during the trip. They also told us about Dubrovnik and the near by island Lockrum when we stopped for a rest which was very informative. We stopped in a cave for about an hour and were provided with snacks including cereal type bar and fresh fruit. We were provided with snorkelling gear but no one done this as it seemed a bit dangerous as it was near lots of rocks and cliffs and the water was very choppy- this would have been nicer in calmer waters. My friend felt un-well and couldn't continue with the trip, we told the instructors and they arranged for a speed boat to come and collect us, they were very attentive and arranged all this with no problems/hassles.
Overall a great experience and I would do it again!
The tour was great, I really recommend it. we really enjoy it and appreciate the kindness of our guide Renato.
We had a very good morning kayaking,and Ivan was a very good tour guide brilliant!!!!
The times on the leaflets/Internet are all wrong the trip said 9.15 am so we thought we would be picked up much earlier but the tour didn't start till 9.30!!!
And confirming was a disaster as I emailed to ask what time they would pick us up but didn't come for us so we had to re schedule,
Some great kyaking. Friendly instructor. A great way to see the sunset should you choose the 4 O Clock slot
Very good tour. I recommend doing this tour early in the morning as we did, so you have the rest of the evening to do other things. The guides were friendly and informative. We enjoyed kayaking into a small cave into the mountain and it's a unique way to see Dubrovnik by the sea. There is a stop off at a nearby beach...remember to have/ wear some water shoes/flip flops. The beaches are not sand beaches but pebble and very hard to walk bare foot on.
Other than that we loved this tour!
no solo kayak available so had to share with inexperienced stranger.. ended up doing all the work since other person had no clue of what to do.. safe and not difficult..
What gorgeous scenery and I don't just mean the tour guide;) Nice chilled out water sport kills a few hours. Water is lovely, snorkeling is in a little cave cove and you get to see a few tiddlers nothing worth eating! It's a beautiful place and worth having a go whatever your fitness.
The sea kayaking was hard work and lots of fun. It really felt great to get the exercise. The snorkeling was unremarkable, only a few fish, not surprising when you consider we were in a small cove visited by groups twice daily. I traveled with 3 other people age 63 and above. We had trouble keeping up with the younger kayakers, so on the return to port, because the whole group had 2 guides, we 2 were able to split off and take a short cut. Our guide was great and stopped often to share lots of history and interesting facts with us. Dubrovinik is beautiful. I would love to spend more time there.
The voucher was confusing as it didn't ID where to go or with which company. Turns out there were two companies only one of which would accept the voucher. Also, I wasted money on a waterproof camera when it wasn't necessary. Otherwise, it was a great trip - both guides (a guy and a gal) were friendly and helpful. It made for a good night's sleep! I would, and did, recommend it. The tour was good, but the voucher could have been more helpful.
Had a little trouble finding the representative from the tour, but once that was taken care of, everything else fell into place nicely. We had 14 in our group which meant 7 kayaks. At various points the guides would stop the tour and give us information about what we were seeing. The stop for snorkeling was the highlight for my son. All in all a good tour.
The outfit providing the tours is easy to find - actually, they are the same group selling tours at the entrance to the old city. The group we were in wasn't very small and this made it difficult to hear information at various stops. Fortunately the scenery is so beautiful that you quickly forget about this. Lunch was provided on the beach and snorkeling gear was available - water was a bit cold to do this though and there isn't a huge amount of sea life to make it worthwhile. Altogether, the tour is definitely a must-do while in Dubrovnik for the experience and for the views if nothing else.
Excellent kayaking trip. Not much snorkeling..had about 25 minutes at the cove. Should advertise it as a kayaking trip. Almost missed the trip because trip representative didn't come to the meeting spot.
It was a terrific experience. The company was small but organized, the equipment was good, and the tour was delightful. Recommended.
My partner and I had a great time on this tour. Unfortunately due to a huge thunderstorm, our original tour (9.15am) was cancelled, but cleared up later in the day and we went on the 4pm sunset tour instead. Only a small group (us and one other couple) along with the guide. Have to say that you definitely would want to have kayaked before as you go right out around the island and it is hard work paddling back into the wind (if it's windy). But we thoroughly enjoyed. The tour is 7.5 kms of paddling in total!!
