How to get there
There is a ship going to Kolocep island from Dubrovnik main port called Gruz, at 10 am. You can buy the boat tickets at the Jadrolinija office just across the ship Postira.
Just a quick email to say thank you for organising our Kayaking trip last month.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day on Kolocep and our instructor was very understanding and reassuring, as it was our first time Kayaking!
My girlfriend was nervous to begin with, but is now very proud of her achievement.
Please pass on our thanks to the instructor (sorry, we have forgotten her name).
We'll recommend you to our friends if they visit Croatia!

We had the great fortune to seakayak around the island of Kolocep with Bavi from Huck Finn. Peggy, the office manager, was great in arranging our pick up and drop off from our accomodations. The sea kayaking was absolutely amazing. Bavi gave us a quick tutorial and we were off. Without stopping, it's about a two hour paddle around the island, but we stopped to swim, rest and explore some incredible caves that would give the Italian Blue Grotto a run for the money. I would highly recommend this tour company for a great day.

We booked a day trip Kayaking around Kolocep island. Huck Finn arranged to pick us up in Cavtat, drive all 7 of us to Dubrovnik, where we were ferried to Kolocep, and after brief training and intro in a smart hotel, we were whisked out to our Kayaks for a paddle completely round the island, touring caves and an excellent stop at a Taverna where we enjoyed a delicious light meal before continuing a trip back to the hotel.
As the Ferry was not running to a convenient time, the Huck Finn team took us back to the mainland in their own dinghy followed by a Mini bus.
This was an excellent value day, that was not overly testing but memorable and enjoyable whilst in safe hands. Their representatives are knowledgable and professional. We would definitely use Huck Finn again.
