Fantastic sunset kayak Went on a sunset kayak with my husband and our friends and we were very impressed with the service and the experience. Our guide was friendly knowledgeable and courteous to our group. I really loved the additional touches of a bottle of water, fruit prior to beginning as well as sampling local wine with some snacks after the tour. Exceeded our expectations and value for money. Thank you guys so much ! Would definitely do another tour with you again.

Best sunset tour☀️ Nick and Adam were very friendly. You can join this tour for reasonable price. It was my first time kayaking, so I went with a guide(Nick). He was a very gentleman. During the kayaking, He tell stories about Dubrovnik's city, buildings and island. We met before the tour and had a briefing. Water and fruit are provided to each person. I got into the kayak with a waterproof bag, life jacket, and a small container to store electronic devices. It was difficult at the end due to my lack of health, but it was worth it. And I liked moving with small groups. Other teams seemed too crowded and complicated. After the tour, Nick will clean up the kayak. Adam gave me a glass of wine. If you're visiting Dubrovnik, take a kayak tour here! Thank you guys👍❤️

Definitely a must do A great trip. Both novices at kayaking but thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked with Adam who explained everything to us with no pressure to book there and then. Nick took us out on the trip. He was kind, friendly, chilled, and informative. 4 hour trip with two stops. Beautiful scenes from the sea, would 100% recommend.

Tour of a life. Enlightenment There are tours that deliver everything promised technically, and people rate them 5 stars. But there are Adam and Nick, absolute geniuses and kindest guys we ever meet, they took this to another realm and made it out of body experience. Honestly I don’t know what they are doing as kayak guides, they could be country leaders. I will remember this tour forever. I can’t say enough how they were dedicated and the best tourist representatives we have ever encounter, never seen anything like it. the whole tour atmosphere was magical. I will dream about this tour. Wish them all the best in life and hope that girls who end up with them know how lucky they are

Fantastic experience! Sunset paddle was superb. At 40 euro per person is a steal for this experience. Staff were very friendly and knowleagble throughout. Their attention to detail and organisation was exceptional. I wouldn't go anywhere else if this company is avaliable.

Nick's guidance throughout the tour was top-notch. Nick's guidance throughout the tour was top-notch. He provided clear instructions on paddling techniques and ensured everyone's safety. His commentary about the history and culture of Dubrovnik added depth to the journey, making it more than just a physical adventure. The scenery along the coastline was breathtaking, and Nick knew all the best spots for photo opportunities. Overall, it was a fantastic way to explore the beautiful coastline of Dubrovnik while learning about its rich history. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.

3 hour sunset kayak Our three-hour sunset kayak trip in Dubrovnik was a delightful experience. We, a family of four, navigated around the beautiful Lokrum Island, located in front of the historic Ragusa Fortress, a symbol of Dubrovnik’s rich past. The trip was of moderate difficulty, making it enjoyable and engaging. We marveled at luxurious houses along the shore and explored gorgeous caves, both adding a touch of intrigue to our adventure. Dubrovnik, known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic," showcased its stunning beaches and landscapes, with the city’s iconic walls and structures creating a beautiful backdrop. The experience was enriched as we witnessed a stunning sunset, casting warm hues over the tranquil waters and silhouetting the rugged landscapes, leaving us with lasting memories of this beautiful city. This kayak trip is a wonderful way to explore and appreciate the beauty and history of Dubrovnik, offering a unique perspective of the city and its surrounding nature. Whether you're an avid adventurer or looking for a relaxed excursion, this experience is a great option.

1. Introduction @ meeting point Pile Gate

Kayaking isn’t as tiring as one may imagine, especially when you know what you are doing. Dubrovnik guided kayaking tour is great for beginners and our experienced guides make sure to get you well prepared for this extraordinary adventure. The only thing that is expected of you is to come at least 20 minutes before the tour and listen carefully to our instructions. We expect this from everyone taking the kayaking tour, even if you are the master of paddling.

2. Dubrovnik City Walls 

More than a half of the 2 kilometres long Dubrovnik City Walls is facing the sea. Therefore, the view of the mighty walls from the sea is simply breathtaking. You will start your tour from Pile gate where you’ll pass right next to the detached powerful fortress of St. Lawrence and continue your journey towards the Island of Lokrum. 

Your guide will tell you all about the history of the walls and its great towers, fortresses and bastions, while you are paddling right beside them. He’ll make sure to take you to the best spots to take extraordinary photos and simply relax soaking in the beauty of it all.  

3. The Island of Lokrum

Your Dubrovnik guided kayaking tour will take you further along the Island of Lokrum, with stunning scenery and lush green forests.

The island itself is a spectacular nature reserve, with only one family living there, but thousands of travellers visiting it every day. Paddling along its secret coves on a turquoise water will give you a closer look of this beautiful gem. 

Your guide will make sure to introduce you to many mysterious stories that have been passed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. He’ll also give you plenty of time to capture the beauty of the island and the famous Game of Thrones filming locations.

4. Betina Cave

Just when you think you’re in paradise, and things can’t get any better, our guide will take you to hidden Betina Cave beach, accessible only after swimming or kayaking. 

Here, hidden in the rocks, on a beautiful pebble beach, you’ll have a half an hour to rest, enjoy your complimentary snack and snorkel. Did we mention that the beach itself has the most amazing view of the Lokrum Island and Dubrovnik City Walls? 

Those who love the adrenaline rush can even go cliff jumping. But, if you are not one of those, just enjoying the view while sunbathing will give you chills. 

5. Easy Return 

You will paddle back to the starting point easily along the coastline and Dubrovnik Old Town, which will give you plenty of time to truly get into the vibe of the Pearl of the Adriatic.
