Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Sea Kayak and Snorkeling Small-Group Tour

Dubrovnik Kayak and Snorkeling Small-Group Tour

Disembark from your ship and then hop on a smaller boat: a kayak. This ensures you’ll see this pristine city, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic,’ from a totally different perspective. After meeting your guide, learn proper kayaking and snorkeling techniques and then hop in the kayak and start paddling. Cruise by Dubronik’s imposing medieval walls and learn about the history of the city from the guide, who paddles closeby.

Once at Betina Beach, take a break to eat some local treats and drink some water. Then grab the snorkel gear and head below the surface of the water to gawk at some marine life. This is a great way to ensure you’re getting the most out of your shore excursion and that you’re seeing Dubrovnik in a very unique way. 

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Dubrovnik port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Great tour that allows you to see Dubrovnik from a different angle on the water. Kayaking was great however needs a good level of fitness as the total distance is about 7.5km. The snorkel was a little disappointing due to the large number of tour groups at the small beach. Still a great trip

This was a fabulous way to see Dubrovnik. Our guide Marko was informative, interesting and funny. He brought us a local lunch which was appreciated. We went for quite a trip - Marko told us everything we needed to know about kayaking. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :-)

What an amazing trip! They were easy to locate and the guides were so friendly and engaging. They gave us great tips for activities in town and pointed out great features of the town and surrounding areas. We kayaked around a nearby island and then went for a snack and break at a small cave where we could swim and look at the little fishes. I can't wait to go back!

This is the way to go if you are in Dubrovnik. Our guide Marco was amazing, he gave us some history on the city as we kayaked to a small cove. He gave us some delicious local snacks and we had time to swim, snorkle and relax. Then we got back on the kayaks and went over to the nearby island of Lucro and back to the departure point. On the way back we experienced some high winds and pretty big waves, but Marco tied our kayak to his and was able to safely pull us back ashore. It was tiring but I would certainly do it again! Memorable experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

We really enjoyed the chance to see beautiful Dubrovnik from the water side. The tour guides were personable, safe, and knowledgeable. We got to hear about the history of the city and ask questions. We will remember this experience always. Be warned there is a competing group of kayak adventures who are vey pushy and strangely will warn you away from this tour. I found them to be unprofessional and inaccurate. Our guides and equipment were fantastic!

Very fun tour! We kayaked almost 5 miles around an island and got in about 30 minutes of snorkeling. Recommended!

Don't worry, you will make it back to your ship in time...that was my biggest worry. The on site viator guides were willing to refund us if we thought we couldn't catch the return bus to the ship. (That helped) July (temp about 85F) We are active (45 y/o married couple) - No exp. necessary (training provided) Our guide was Antonella - She was absolutely great! She customized our excusion to fit our time. Our excursion was supposed to start at 5:30PM, they started it at 5:00PM and finishing at 7:15PM (Viator guide Antonella - gave us the option to shorten our tour due to weather / catching the last bus 8PM to Cruise ship)
The cruise ship bus takes you to the point where the Viator tour starts and ends (can't get lost)
Professional - Knowledgeable - English speaking - Safety gear provided
Learned the history of Dubrovnik as we kayaked
An air tight container (Either large or small - you pick) is provided to put your wallets, ipad's and camera's etc into - It is secured to your kayak.
Sea water was beautifully clean, and not too cold (perfect)
Provided a complimentary bottle of water
Snorkeled from a sea cave - and we saw many sea creatures (fish) from the minute you put your head into the water.
HINT** If you have individuals who aren't interested in the kayaking, they can ride the same bus ($12 USD p/p for round trip) to your drop off point and site see. Conveinently located, they will definitely have plenty to see while you are on your excursion...and then again, the pick up point is the same for every ship.
None - Just plan on being tired and laughing a lot (Especially if you are a couple in a double kayak)
