The experience was brilliant and the guides were helpful and cheerful. The scenery is awesome. Wet shoes are good to have, however if you dont, you can get away with using sandals as well. The return journey to the starting point is only for the driver, but it is easy to get back. If unsure the guides are happy to put the address into your navigation. Highly recommended.

Beautiful day on the water. As it was quite windy and the sea was rough we were glad our guide changed the itinerary to avoid trying to paddle over to and around Lokrum. We would have been exhausted. Instead we had a lovely sojourn at the cave beach, swam and snorkeled, dried out in the sunshine, and swam some more.

We saw sunset from a bar just outside the walls on our first night in Dubrovnik and immediately made the decision to book this experience. So happy we did! Dom was a wonderful, informative and relaxed guide. Beautiful swim, amazing sunset, lovely memories. Must do!

Would definitely recommend this tour! Ivan was awesome. He had great knowledge of the city and history and made the 3hr kayak tour fun with a good pace. Also the thought of wine and crackers at the end helped keep the hanger at bay.

Ivan was a fantastic tour guide- extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Will recommend this to everyone coming to Dubrovnik! We had a lovely time kayaking around the island and the sunset was beautiful!
