What you'll do

Set off from the Old Town, where looking up at the imposing medieval walls, you’ll get a true invaders’ perspective of the city! Delve into the history and battle scars of the 900-year-old walls before we set course towards waters near the cursed island of Lokrum. As we paddle near the lushly wooded isle, you’ll discover the roots of its age-old curse, hear tales of the island’s remarkable previous inhabitants and take in stunning views.

Amidst towering rocks and the translucent blue-green Adriatic we visit a sea cave on the far side of the island. Listen to it echo with the island’s secrets. We then circle back towards the mainland, passing by the entrancing ruins of what was once the most beautiful hotel in the area. We “drop anchor” at a spectacular beach cave for sunbathing, selfies, swimming or snorkeling through crystal waters, and refuel on a host provided snack.

Paddling onward, snap photos of Dubrovnik’s ‘Beverly Hills’, the area’s most glamorous and expensive neighborhood. At the edge of the Old Town harbor we stop near Lazareti, Europe’s first quarantine zone.

On final approach take pictures and bask in the spectacular sky-meets-sea views of the Old Town.

Booked this trip off the cuff as our first ever Air bnb activity. What an absolute gem kayaking around Dubrovnik! Tao was an excellent guide and such a relaxed guy. One of our best holiday experiences for sure! Keep up the great work Tao and see you next time!

Couldn’t recommend this tour more! Fantastic value for money, amazing guide, getting to see all sides of Dubrovnik old town as well as Lokrum and Bettina cave. A must do while staying in Dubrovnik.

I would definitely recommend this kayaking trip! Teo was a great host and gave us lots of insightful information and stories about Lokrum and some buildings in Dubrovnik but also left us lots of time just to paddle by ourselves and explore. The whole trip felt very chilled and calm and he was nice just to chat to! We were worried about paddling so far in a kayak and that we would struggle but it’s much easier than we thought and we got all the help from Teo instructing us at the start. Great addition to sit on the beach half way through, enjoy the sandwich and a swim/snorkel in a little rocky bay with lots of fish. Worth every penny because you get taken to the nice places and taught about them.

It was the best tour that we experienced in Dubrovnik! Teo was a great tour guide. He gave us enough time to explore, take pictures, and he was a good storyteller too! We loved it so much and definitely recommend this tour 👍🏼

It was fun to discover Dubrovnik by sea. Our guide told us interesting stories about Dubrovnik. Due to strong winds the route was different than usual. You do not need a lot of experience to kayak.
