Sea Kayaking Dubrovnik

We designed this Sea Kayaking Dubrovnik holiday for those who love traveling, being active outdoors and exploring seaside, nature, heritage, history and art. Daily routes are rather short – 2 to 4 hours of easy sea kayaking – and not demanding, fit for all ages between eight and late sixties. No previous sea kayaking experience is necessary.

Based on Lopud Island, we will kayak Elaphiti Islands shorelines, rich in cultural and natural heritage and visit Dubrovnik – one of the world’s most beautiful old towns. Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to the Elaphiti Islands Archipelago – 13 green islands covered by pine forests, without car traffic, with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, less than an hour by ferry from Dubrovnik. Each has no more than a couple of hundred permanent residents who live in stone houses of traditional character. You will spend a day exploring each island and its hidden coves, caves, reefs and sandy beaches while sea kayaking, cycling, swimming, snorkeling and on foot. Our experienced local guides will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience.

The holiday is perfect for families with children but also couples and solo travelers looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy fun activities. Designated family and adult departures will ensure suitable group dynamics.
