This small-group tour leaves from Dubrovnik and kayaks to Betina. Never been on a kayak or snorkeled before? Have no fear. One of the perks of this tour is that the guide goes over all the proper techniques as well as safety rules.

As you paddle along, expect the guide to regale the small group with historical anecdotes and tales of legendary figures of the city. Take a moment to drink in the views of Dubrovnik and its ancient 13th-century walls.

Once you reach Betina Beach, take a breather to enjoy a beverage. Then put on your snorkeling gear for a fun adventure beneath the surface of the water, as you look at marine life.

Great fun, great views
, Aug 2022
Great views…hope you are comfortable in a kayak…3 hours total with two haul-outs on pretty spots…consider renting by the hour if you are comfortable paddling
Great and fun way to explore
, Jul 2022
The guides were excellent and this is an excellent way to spend an early evening. Lots of interesting stories about the locale and both guides engaged with the whole party. One of the highlights of our trip.

Kayaking tour only
, Jul 2022
This tour is basically kayaking. If you expecting snorkeling this tour is not for you. If you are thinking to do this tour with teens, make sure you know that they have gone kayaking before. Otherwise you will have a miserable experience. I personally enjoyed seeing the walls of Dubrovnik when you are laying toward the islands. I would give them a 3 stars basically because the title of the tour should say just kayaking.
Great time

Josh was a good tour guide and the kayaking was amazing, you should take it in the afternoon to see the sunset. Would do it again.
Ok but cheaper options available
, Jul 2019
The tour itself is ok but beware that the wind does pick up in the afternoon and makes it difficult to paddle back, especially for beginners. Try to book a morning tour if possible. Snorkeling equipment was sub par and all you get is a bottle of water. We found out that other tour companies offer cheaper options that even include food. All in all the tour is recommended but it wasn’t the best value.

Great tour, but tough workout

My partner and I did this tour on a day that was a little overcast and rainy. We were a small group of around 10 people total. We arrived on time and were offered jackets/wetsuits to keep us warm and of course lifejackets which were mandatory. I feel that this tour was exactly as described in terms of what we did, but not the skill level. The tour guide (who was great and very friendly!) moved through things pretty quickly and we felt we had to keep up with him - which was way faster than we'd hoped. By the end of this we were absolutely exhausted and felt we didn't get to enjoy the scenery and the tour itself. The waters at some points were really choppy and it got a bit concerning being in the middle of the ocean in a tiny boat. My partner and I are mid 20's, pretty healthy and active, and we both really struggled ability wise. Other than that the tour was great!
Highly recommended

Kayaking was a great way to see the city walls from a different perspective. Our guide Romana was fantastic and gave us some great insights into the history of Dubrovnik. The snorkeling was fun and all equiptment provided, even wet suits. It was great to be part of a small-group tour so we could hear everything the guide said and keep together. She gave us regular breaks so we didn't get too tired, having said that 3 hours was enough for the two of us!

Canceled our experience without even contacting us. It was beautiful weather and we showed up and all only to be told no tours were happening. Has been a nightmare to even get a refund as they are all pointing fingers saying they are not capable.
Great work out!

Great, worthwhile fun.

It was windy, so kayaking was more of a challenge but doable and fun with the stronger waves. Thankful the instructor was my partner in the double — he knew what he was doing. My group took a break by a cave and swam/snorkeled in the sea, which was beautiful and pleasant. We then kayaked to Lokrum and took a break there as well for a swim/rest prior to returning. All from the group enjoyed the experience.

This kayak tour was an excellent choice for our short visit to Dubrovnik. Our tour guide Joseph was amazing and very informative. The company worked around our tight schedule to get back to our cruise ship on time. Great customer service and I highly recommend this tour for your kayak trip!

absolutely loved this tour, there was 65 of us in total who booked, we all booked separately but still managed t get on the same tour, the guides were fantastic and the tour itself was brilliant, we started in the old town near restaurant nautika, we set off out to sea and went around the island lokrum, stopped off in a cave before stopping at a beach to have some lunch and the continued around the island back to where we set off. Pack lots of sun cream as you are out at sea for a few hours without any cover, pack some water as well as it is hard work.

The tour was a great experience, the views are amazing! But the guides we had were not really friendly and did not make it a fun trip, it was a large group of more than 30 so everything felt rushed, one guide was always being mean to those left behind, rushing them to move faster, we didn't even stop to see the sunset because they kept rushing us. The guides gave water bottles to some and when I asked for mine they were second guessing me if they had already given me some! Like I'm trying to Steal their water. The guides were not helpful and again didn't make an effort to even make effort to make it fun, the younger man giving the actual tour was knowledgeable and funny but it was such a large group, you couldn't even hear him... the wine at the end is just some boxes of wine and crackers thrown in a bag, the guides don't even stay to talk. It's sad because you could see other tours that had guides that really improved the whole trip... im glad the views are so incredible on their own PS: this is not a relaxing kayak tour, this was an intense 2 hour trip kayaking all the time pretty much and with some medium waves and wind, so people should be prepared for a workout.

Pros: great to kayak in the Adriatic! Equipment was adequate and in good condition. Great location/ route (around Lokrum island and with a stop in a mainland cave). Cons: not a tour - more of a race around island with little info share. Snorkel site: a couple different fish, tons people. Meh
