Know More about this tour

Make your own way to the beach near Pile Gate in UNESCO-listed Dubrovnik Old Town, and meet your guide for your 2.5- to 3-hour sea kayak tour. Put on your lifejacket, listen to a safety briefing and then paddle away from the cove in your provided kayak.

The route covers the narrow channel of the Adriatic Sea between Dubrovnik’s age-old city walls and the pretty island of Lokrum. Known for its tropical gardens and history, the island also has some local legends that hint at a mysterious, maybe dark, past. Listen to tales of Lokrum as you paddle, and gaze out at the impressive sights. The island's Benedictine monastery and a Napoleonic fort are just a couple of the landmarks you'll spot on your route.

Your guide stays close-by through the experience, allowing you to hear brief stories that cover a range of topics from scenery to the country’s history and the impact of the Croatian War of Independence. Besides the commentary, you’ll also get tips on how to improve your paddling technique so you can get the most out of your time on the water.

From Lokrum, paddle back toward the mainland and along the Dubrovnik coastline. Enjoy a 30-minute stop at a secluded beach cave along the way, and use the time to refuel with a snack, soak up the sun, shelter in the shade or snorkel in the sea. (Snorkel equipment and snacks are provided.)

Feeling refreshed, paddle your way back to the start point where your tour ends. If you have booked the sunset tour, then an added bonus is in store: finish with a chilled glass of wine on the beach and toast to your accomplishment.

  • This tour was breathtaking .
    The guide shared so much information and even though it was very windy it was lots of fun!

  • Our tour guide Tonka was amazing and knew all about the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia and was able to answer all our questions about the area. She also told us many stories about the Croatia and Dubrovnik which were great! Would have loved a little more time at the beach however the kayaking around the island was great!! Thank you again!

  • Kayaking with Adventure Dubrovnik was a really good time. The company sent out detailed instructions about the the meeting location 24 hours before the scheduled meeting time and was there waiting on the group a bit earlier than the meeting time. Once the entire group was there we walked to the beach, received an initial kayaking orientation then given waterproof buckets for larger and smaller items before we were off.

    We paddled out from the Pile gate and stopped close to shore at Lokrum and was given an option to paddle around Lokrum 1 hr, 15m or going directly to the cave and relaxing on the beach while the rest of the group paddled around Lokrum no stopping on the island on this tour. While paddling around Lokrum, the guide provided great facts about the island and the history of Dubrovnik. After we finished paddling around Lokrum we met up with the rest of the group and had lunch just a ham sandwich or fruit, if vegetarian and enjoyed swimming in the cave for about 20 or 25 minutes before heading back to the Pile gate to wrap up the tour.

    The only things I'd change is, that I would've liked the opportunity to be in my own kayak instead of being paired up with a random stranger I believe there are only 3 or 4 individual kayaks so it's likely you won't be given the opportunity to have one. Also, it would've been nice if the company recommended bringing water shoes and towels, etc. just so all participants knew what to expect. I'm a regular kayaker so I was aware, but other people on the excursion expressed that they were clueless.

  • Good experience! The tour was well organized and the guides were very accommodating.

  • So much fun! Guides were great, nice guys who gave us some great little stories about the history of Dubrovnik and surrounding islands. So glad we did the morning tour as the weather was perfect and warm enough for snorkelling in the gorgeous bay we pulled up in. Would do this again for sure!

  • A Great Workout with Fantastic Views
    No better way to star a morning then to kayak with friends. The weather was favorable and guide was knowledgeable. We got a lot of history about the island and castle. We then spent the rest of the morning swimming from a secluded cove and enjoying lunch. I would recommend wearing a dry fit top. I made the mistake of wearing a cotton tee and ended up soaked and cold on the kayak trip back.

  • Amazing!! Do it at sunset. Worth the extra to see the sun setting as you kayak back. The included meal was ok. Basic. It was too windy to go around the island which was unfortunate.

  • It wasn't an easy trip, but it was worth it! I hadn't been kayaking in awhile, but found my 14 yr. old son and I were able to do just fine. It's a 3 hr. trip so be prepared for a lot of paddling! Our guide did stop several times to offer a little rest while he told us about some of the sites. It was a little hard to hear everything out there in the ocean, but he encouraged us to ask questions, etc. I would definitely wear some water shoes as entering and exiting points are very rocky. We had flip flops, but I would've preferred water shoes. The view of the Old Town and its walls from the water was pretty amazing. If you're into a little exercise, adventure and site seeing, I think it's a great trip!

  • Emailed them the day prior and received the meeting place and photo of the guy who was meeting us. Great service and a great kayak tour

  • Really enjoyed this excursion. It was challenging but by no means impossible for anyone of moderate fitness. Good value for money and well organised!
