1. Introduction @ meeting point Pile Gate

Our job is to get you into kayaking master in a matter of minutes, your job is to arrive at least 20 minutes before the tour and listen carefully to our instructions. We’ve made them super easy for you. Our guide will demonstrate kayaking and safety techniques and provide you with the life vest and waterproof bags for your belongings.

2. Dubrovnik City Walls 

Our local kayak guides will introduce you to sea kayaking on the tranquil waters of the Adriatic Sea and tell you all about Dubrovnik’s history and modern days. We love questions, so don’t hesitate to ask whatever comes to your mind.

3. The Island of Lokrum

The Island of Lokrum, located right next to old Dubrovnik city centre, is one of Croatia’s most iconic nature reserves. The scenery is spectacular, with clear turquoise water, special forest vegetation and secret coves. 

Many mysteries and stories surround this beautiful gem, including the great legend of the Lokrum curse. Our guide will tell you all about it. 

We’ll also make several stops to capture picture-perfect moments by the island, including the famous Game of Thrones filming locations.

4. Betina Cave

A true traveller knows that the treasures worth talking home about usually take a bit of work to uncover. This is one of those treasures. Betina Cave beach is completely hidden inside a cave. It can only be reached after swimming or kayaking. But once at the beach, there is plenty to do. 

There are beautiful reefs in the water, perfect for an afternoon spent snorkeling. Of course, there’s plenty of room on the beach for sunbathing with the perfect view of Lokrum Island and Dubrovnik City Walls. And, if you are one of the brave ones, cliff jumping from Betina Cave is an awesome way to get that adrenaline up and running. 

5. Easy Return 

By now we’ll get you to that state of mind where everything just feels so…easy. So, we’ll just paddle slowly back along the coastline and the city walls, and let you have plenty of photo opp breaks with breathtaking backdrops.
