Take a break from walking around Dubrovnik Old Town and see it from angles many visitors never experience on this guided kayaking tour. Paddle a kayak around the medieval walls and across the channel to the waters near Lokrum Island. Swim, snorkel, and snack at a popular but isolated beach-cave on the mainland. A choice of departure times gives you flexibility, and if you select the evening time slot, enjoy the sunset and chilled wine on the beach. No previous kayaking experience required.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at a beach near Dubrovnik’s Pile Gate and after instructions, receive your life vest and paddle. Then, board your kayak. Paddle off behind your guide, gliding along the waters between Dubrovnik’s 12th-century walls and Lokrum, an island just offshore that’s home to gardens, a Benedictine monastery, and a Napoleonic-era fort. Along the way, admire the scenery and hear snippets about Dubrovnik’s history and legends, together with what life was like during the 1991-1995 Croatian War of Independence. After seeing Lokrum, cruise to the Dubrovnik coastline and pull up at a secluded bay with a cave. Here, enjoy time to sunbathe, swim, or snorkel using the provided equipment, and refuel with snacks. If you book the evening tour, your beach time includes watching the sunset over a glass of wine. Lastly, return to your kayak and paddle back to the starting beach, where your Dubrovnik kayak tour concludes.

This was one of our favourite parts of our trip to Dubrovnik. Really great experience with really good guides. The sunset wasn't great on the day we did it but just being out on the sea and seeing the views of the old town was brilliant. Definitely recommend.
