“ GI Joe pulled the kayak ”
We had a great day on the water. It was kind of windy and we needed help with the paddling against the strong winds (waves) on the way back. The guys were very helpful and very funny (entertaining). This was one of our favorite tours in Dubrovnik, even though we could not go swimming (the Adriatic Sea was still a bit too cold).
Two thumbs up!

We had a great couples of hours out in the sun on the waters outside of the old town. Visiting the cave and Lokrum. The kayaks were very stable out on the waves. Very caring and friendly service from the staff before heading out.

“ Highly Recommend ”
I would highly recommend this company for anyone interested in a kayaking trip. They were very easy to work with. They were able to set up a trip for 4 within the hour over WhatsApp. They were also very accommodating, when we were not able to join any of the regular tour times they set up a private trip for us. The tour it’s self was beautiful, informative and very fun. Thank you!

This is the best day out for a family, young and old. A great adventure with amazing views and interesting history. Our guide, Dan, was fun, down to earth and great with the kids. Surprised with sandwiches, water and scuba gear at the beach. Would highly recommend.

“ Excellent experience ”
It was an amazing experience and Edi, Joe, and Dan were great hosts. The kayaking was incredible and we were given enough knowledge to feel confident even though we haven't kayaked before. Edi was very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik's history and culture which was obtain to learn about whilst kayaking. It was also a nice touch having wine together by the sea as the sun set. Overall a perfect addition to our holiday!

We did the half day tour about one month ago. The kayaking was fun and the scenery was beautiful but the best part was our hosts Eddie and Giovanni.
Eddie's knowledge of history mixed with his dry sense of humour made the paddle entertaining. Giovanni was very kind to everyone on the trip.
Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone in Dubrovnik.

“ Amazing staff ”
So I “attempted” to do sea kayaking, i can’t tell you how it was because I only managed to get 20 minutes before being sick into the sea. The staff were great they called a boat to come take me back and sat with me making me feel better. They were so friendly and made me laugh even though I felt like death. One of the workers walked us back to the site and said he would refund the money. If you are going to do sea kayaking I would defiantly recommend you go here!
shanksyuk - 07 oct 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Fantastic 3 Hours! ”
What a great afternoon! Booked the 13:30 tour and had the pleasure of Darko taking us out seeing Dubrovnik and Old Town from a different perspective. For those that had never been kayaking before or had little experience like us, Darko went through all the basics and no one fell behind. we had plenty of stops along the 8.5km journey and were told different stories about the history of Dubrovnik. I would recommend bringing flip flops or wet shoes for the cave stop, the stones are very uncomfortable for those with soft feet. Overall it was a fantastic 3 hours and Darko made it very special for us. Thank you to the X Adventure team for a memorable day.
cecilialec - 01 oct 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Awesome Kayak Adventure ”
The guides, Jakov and Mateo, were excellent and explained how to kayak for those who were inexperienced and helped us along the way. They were entertaining with many historical facts and stories to tell as well as answered our questions. It was a long trip around Lokrum island but we stopped as needed to rest and enjoyed snorkeling in a cave at one of the rest stops. The kayaking was smooth and the scenery spectacular. Highly recommended.

“ Cool way to see the city ”
Kayaking with Matt and Tommy was fun. We paddled around the city walls, had a small but informative history lesson (just enough info) and then headed over to a small beach for a swim. Then paddled over to the island of Lokrum, saw a cool cave, naked and not so naked beaches. Got to have a few swims along the way, lots of fun and definitely cooler than walking around town.

“ Awesome ”
We have just returned from sea kayaking with Edi, Matteo (and I'm very sorry, but other 2 guys names I cannot remember).
We were in a group of 14/15 people. Tour itself is very interesting, informative and fun. Edi gave us local knowleage about the history of the area, which we did not expect. He's really funny and makes the the tour feel relaxed, his one liners are spectacular.
Flip flops or swim flat shoes are a must and I would bring a towel for after the tour.
We would most certainly recommend these guys to out loved ones and we will definitely return next time we're in Dubrovnik.

“ Great Way to See Dubrovnik from A Unique Perspective ”
A guide on another tour told my sister and I that one thing many people miss out on is seeing Dubrovnik from the sea. The view of the city from the water was amazing, and it was fun to take part in Croatia's affinity for water sports. Our guide was awesome and took us to a cave on the side of Lokrum where we were able to jump off the cliff (worth it even if you're afraid of heights). If you have sensitive feet I recommend water shoes as the beach is rocky and can be hard to walk on. Also, make sure to eat something before you go as it is a long trip (8km of paddling with breaks) and the sandwich they give you is nothing special.
mickd851 - 28 jun 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Very safe, eloquent to a leader, not a difficult kayak ”
Certainly well organised, the team are there to look after you and you certainly feel safe the whole time, the leader in our case Tonker was a very eloquent young lady and she set a good easy pace for the whole group. On the particular occasion, we didn’t get to go right round the island as the wind was blowing quite heavily, however they put us on a beach very nicely and we did a bit of snorkelling, if you used to Australia, with fine sandy beaches and great snorkelling then this will disappoint, however there were rocks to walk on and limited fish life, a few of the lads jumped off the rocks, impressive!!!!
Harperbyc - 28 jun 2018, TripAdvisor

“ Cool hosts! ”
We did the morning start half day tour. Nikola and Mario were our guides and they were pretty on point with everything. Kayak itself was a but more exhausting than expected but there was also a head wind for the 1st part so that was to be expected. Coming back was a breeze with the wind and current behind us. Well arranged day, we felt safe at all times, and the guides were fun to spend time with. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Dubrovnik!

“ Amazing Kayaking Tour with the Best Guides ”
We absolutely loved the tour. Our guides were Nicola and Mario (and a trainee). All the guides were extremely knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and Lokrum, very friendly, and helpful in terms of explaining how to kayak. We loved getting to visit some of the caves and learning about the history of the various places around us on the water. The group provides waterproof bags, waterproof buckets, and lunch! It was so accommodating having everything given to us. The meeting place is super easy to reach. Don't hesitate to take this tour group!

“ Worth doing! So much fun.. ”
Mario was our guide and he was great! He gave us full instructions, took us into some really cool caves, and gave us a lot of interesting information about Dubrovnik on the way. It was a really relaxing few hours of kayaking, exploring Lokrum and swimming the the 'dead sea' and ocean snorkelling. We enjoyed the free time we had on Lokrum Island, and the view of Dubrovnik from the sea is amazing. We would definitely recommend this tour! Thank You again Mario..

“ Little gem ”
On a lads holiday. Thought we would try something a little different (not just sampling the local beers). We all really enjoyed the 8km kayak around the island. Was a great surprise when stopped at beach for lunch and the guide got our snorkels. There are so many fish in the waters and they loved our baguette. Would recommend even more than the wall if you are even slightly outdoorsy.

Had an excellent time kayaking around the Dubrovnik walls today. Our guides Matija and Eddy did an excellent job of keeping everybody safe and told us a lot of great stories regarding Dubrovnik. It ended up raining midway through the experience but that didn't deter how beautiful the rain was from inside the cave where we were having lunch and swimming.

We spent a fabulous 2.5 hours early evening kayaking with Marko and Andrew - starting near Fort Lawrence, we paddled round the small island off the shore of Dubrovnik (Lokrum) - stopping off at a couple of caves - one for a longer break with snorkelling and sandwiches plus cliff diving for the brave!
Great way to spend a couple of hours doing some exercise and getting to watch the old city framed by a beautiful sunset - to finish we had a glass of local wine - all in all a lovely evening adventure

“ Great way to start the day ”
The 9:30 tour was the perfect way to start the day. We kayaked around the island of Lokrum, stopping for short breaks during which the guide would talk about the history of Dubrovnik. It was a bit tiring at some points but definitely worth it. Our guide also let us stop to do some cliff jumping!
Lucy M - 28 may 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Lovely tour and relaxed company ”
We thoroughly enjoyed our kayak tour around Lokrum. The guides, Mateo and Angelo where really relaxed and friendly, and they interacted with everyone and made sure to keep a steady pace. The breaks made the journey achievable, although it is a bit of an arm/shoulder work out - but this just made it all the more rewarding. It was also great to here stories of the city and get a locals perspective on the good places to check out whilst in Dubrovnik. The departure point is also a fab place to relax and swim without being overlooked by tons of tourists at Pile Square. Highly recommended!

“ Hard work but fantastic!! ”
Great day with Eddie and XAdventure doing the half day sea kayak afternoon tour today. Super chilled guide, full of great history stories & advice. Paddling with a partner is tough going to get your synchronicity going, but the scenery made all the tough paddling worth while. Two or three stops for stories, a swim in a cave & viewing of some of the Game of Thrones locations. Just brilliant.
Great to have use of a dry bag & a dry barrel for phone etc.
I'd recommend lots of Sun cream. Great day - thanks guys

We went on a morning tour with Nik and Marta. They made the tour very interesting by their knowledge about Dubrovnik and the stops we made on the way. Beyond the kayaking experience we also asked the rest of the staff what were the best things to do in Dubrovnik and we had a great time following their recommendations.
Definitely worth the money and would totally do it again ;)

We went on the morning half-day tour with Edi in mid-May. It was a great experience. When we stopped for breaks, Edi would tell us lots of interesting information about the history of the city. My sons enjoyed cliff jumping at the cave, and we all enjoyed the swim / snorkel / snack break before heading back in.
CARLASJT - 20 may 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Best Experience in Dubrovnik ”
I did the 3 hour kayak tour and I can not recommend this company highly enough!
It is the best way to see Dubrovnik from a different perspective because the tour starts under the city walls, then around Lokrum Island and stop in an incredible cave to rest for a while, eat something, snorkling, swimming or jumping from a cliff.
Dan is the best tour guide I have ever met! Very funny, professional and explains in a simple and clear way the history of the city and the country. He even sang a Croatian song to make me happy :)
It was a highlight in my vacation in Dubrovnik, definitely!
At the end of the tour, I met other members of the company who shared a drink with me. I felt like I was among friends.
Traveling is my passion, mainly because of the experiences I have and the people I met during the jouney. In this company I found the perfect match!
Thank you very much!!!

“ Best kind of morning workout! ”
Found out about this kayaking activity from the hostel I was staying at. You’re provided water proof bags, a smaller container for electronics, water, and snacks! We started at 9:30 am with our guide Edi. What a wonderful and funny guy! He kept us entertained with stories, jokes, and most importantly safe the entire time! We were fortunate to be in a small group of 9 people so it was easy to follow and hear Edi. We kayaked around Lokrum island, stopped by a cave, then headed to a little beach where we were provided a sandwich! Then it was back to the shore where we first departed. Got back around noon or so.
All the people from X-Adventure are extremely nice and helpful so I highly recommend checking them out and have a memorable time out on the water! Seeing Dubrovnik from another perspective was amazing and something you need to do (if able).
Thank you Edi and everyone at X-Adventure for a great time!
Andy D - 12 may 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Excellent trip and good value for money ”
Did the three hour morning trip. Our guide Edi was very friendly and full of local history. We were a reasonably experienced group so nobody required any instruction. Paddled out around city walls out and around Lokrum with a stop on far side for some cliff jumping. We then came back inshore and stopped off in large cave (I forget the name) grabbed a bite to eat (guides gave us cheese and ham rolls and some water) then did some snorkeling (guides brought along a batch of masks and snorkels for everyone). We then paddled back up the coast to our start point. Excellent all round. Highly recommended

I went kayaking with my best friend, our first time on the sea. Nikola was our guide for the day and lead us around Lorkum and the Dubrovnik city walls. We kayaked for about 2,5 hours and got a sandwich during a half hour break. During the break you get a chance to relax, swim and dive from rocks. Nikola is a very honest guy, who knows a lot about the city and its history and is fun to kayak with. Also great for non-experienced people, 10/10 would recommend!

My friend and I really enjoyed our Kayaking tour and happy that we chose to do it there. Guides were very helpful to let us know how to Kayak correctly not to get too tired, also we heard many interesting and funny stories about the Dubrovnik and Lokrum island, entered multiple different caves near the island and closer to beach, jumped from cliffs, enjoyed the views of Dubrovnik from the sea and loved the complementary sandwiches and water while we were taking a break in one of the caves.
I would totally recommend this tour to others and also would recommend Marta and Edi as great guides!

This is a very interesting way to explore the coastline around Dubrovnik. Nicolai was our guide and he was clearly very focused on ensuring that we had a good time - and we did!
This is quite a physical activity - you are paddling a kayak for over two hours - but Nicolai made sure at all times that we were able to keep up and we never felt pressured at all. My wife and I are in our mid 50s, so not so young anymore!
A great adventure. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful way to see the old walls and lokrum Island. A group of 22 of us headed off from a tiny cove in 2man canoes lead and followed by very informative and experienced instructors. We kayaked for 45 mins before heading to a cove where you could, if you were brave, cliff jump.. and then we bobbed in the water for an informative recount of the history of Dubrovnik.
After this we headed to a bay for a sandwich and snorkelling.. then back to base.
Wonderful sites, great guides and a perfect way to see Dubrovnik!

It was an amazing tour with a really nice tour guide (Pablo). We sometimes stopped during kayaking so he could tell us some stories about Dubrovnik or Lokrum.

“ Great paddling around in the open sea ”
Darko and Danny were our hosts for this amazing sea kayaking/snorkeling tour near the walled fortress of ancient Dubrovnik. We were going on a cruise and had called another company that was booked up so they recommended Darko's group. (I like to set up my own excursions rather than use the ones on cruise ships).
My wife and 11-year-old daughter and I climbed into a kayak and set off, after Darko gave us a map and snorkels and big, plastic screwtop dry well jar to store our cameras/phones in. (I had called Darko ahead of time and set everything up).
The tour costed only € 80 for all three of us together and was so nice. We enjoyed the crystal clear waters, snorkeled in a cave, and felt like ancient mariners as we battled the seas on our own. How liberating this was!
We had the option to take a city bus for just a few euros back and forth to the cruise terminal, but before going back to the ship we ate a nice quick meal of pizza and beer at a spot near the bus stop. Thanks to Darko and his assistants. This was a fun time.

“ Will Do It Again! ”
We booked the sunset kayak way before we arrive in Dubrovnik. We had few email back and forth due to schedule change and they replied promptly.
The entire experience was very challenging but once you've done it the reward will last forever! After the first 20 minutes non-stop rowing, our tour guide stopped and gave us option to take the comfy route, or continue on the regular route, that is to circle around Lekum Is. This is my first time ever kayaking not to mention it is at sea. However, because the calm water it is actually quite easy. With the confident that we have two guides, one in the front and one at the end, all I need was concentrating on our own kayak.
We eventually stopped at a Cave where there were already lots people from other companies. They seemed like having an agreement how long each team would stay so the beach won't get too crowded. We stopped for cliff jumping, snorkeling, and to our surprise, the break also came with a sandwich and a bottle of water!
Once we headed back out, it was this amazing sunset awaited for us. It was quite breathtaking by seeing a sunset and the old city wall together. At the moment, I was really glad that I completed the whole regular route. If I have a chance, I'll do it again.
Oh, forgot to mention that toward the end of the kayak, they offered a bucket of wine bottles for everyone to enjoy.

“ Sunset Kayak ”
Amazing fun and great way to see the city and lokrum from another angle. The guides were helpful, patient and informative. It did get slightly tiring as i'm not used to kayaking but it wasn't difficult to do. The guides told us some facts and stories about the area and had prepared sandwiches and fruit as a snack in the cave. Kayaking along the coast at sunset was gorgeous and memorable and very worthwhile. On return they gave us small bottles of decent enough local wine. They give you a dry bag for clothes etc. and a separate easy access tub for phones so you can safely take pictures. You will get wet even if you don't choose to swim - mainly as the seats and footballs tend to collect water so I would recommend bringing a towel or swimwear. There were toilets nearby the starting point but not directly next to it so bear in mind if changing. If you go swimming i recommend keeping on shoes/ sandals/ wet shoes as there are sea urchins about. Highly recommend.

It was fairly challenging at some points although they admitted it was rough seas. The staff were awesome and explained about the Croatian war and gave facts about the island. Sandwiches and water included and as we were on the sunset kayak, free wine. We also stuck around as the place was gorgeous where you finish and we ended up having a fair few bottles of free wine!! Thanks guys for an amazing evening

“ Challenging & amazing ”
My husband and I were a little dubious if we could manage 3hrs kayaking and 7k at sea but we were reassured we could were aged 49 & 52. We can do 7k walking no problem & it was on my to do list so we gave it a shot as very novice kayakers! We had Antonio and Roberto as the 2 guys who looked after us who were friendly and informative and at ease at the sea. We were never asked can you swim but hey ho you have a life jacket & why would you go out on the sea if you can't swim!
We were given instructions and a bottle of water each and a barrel which is waterproof for your valuables and a sack for clothes.
I have a little motion sickness as it happens but thought be ok at sea which for the majority of it I was until we stopped n huddled kayaks together for info on tour. But after a little vommiting was fine to continue. The views are amazing and Antonio skilfully navigated us threw the waters. We stopped at some caves were unfortunately a lady older than me had too be taken back to shore by the rescue boat as was unwell but not serious. I thought she did amazing at her age in a kayak.
We continued the journey around Lockrum island you don't get off as would have to pay a fee and we went past the nudist part were people were enjoying the sun on the whole of their bodies.
We made it to the next cave for lunch included in price which was a small cheese & ham sandwich nice and fresh and tasty but lacking in substinence after expending all that energy I could have eaten twice as much and would have loved an apple or bannana but this was the lunch for those not eating the sandwich. So handy hint take something extra I'm not greedy my bmi is 23 but needed more energy as was knackered at this point and wondering on this half hour break would I make it back!
The last part of journey was approx 25mins so spurned on and enjoyed the view and history talk from Antonio about the war and how the city was under attack. A lot of the younger ones were knackered too I asked around and felt better it wasn't just my age lol. But it was an achievement for sure and felt good accomplishing it. The fitness level required on the leaflet states as low but that for me was inaccurate so just know your limitations and enjoy beautiful Dubrovnik by sea and if no energy ho by boat.

“ Great views ”
There are several companies all in the same part of town and so its confusing to know who you have booked with and the staff are not that helpful, if not booked on the internet they do not take cards on site only cash. It is about 8km kayaking around Lokrum and takes about 3 hours. We enjoyed it but a bit disappointed with the company, we didn't really get any information on the island or any local knowledge. The stop off points are very disappointing the first a cave where you stay in the boats and one instructor just wants to take people up onto the cliff about 10m high and jump into the sea, the second a beach stop - not really a beach but another cave with a stone shore where all the tours from all the different companies stop, its busy and not very pleasant and you only stay 30mins and they give you snorkels, by the time you get in the water with everyone else its time to move on, after this you paddle back to the start. Make sure you pick your company as we met a fellow traveller later that day who'd done the kayaking with one of the other companies and got lots of info and history of Dubrovnik and Lokrum

“ Fantastic adventure ”
I've done kayaking before, but only on the rivers. It is a completely different sensation to be kayaking at sea! You get a really good view of Dubrovnik from the water.
It is really easy, so you don't have to be extra fit to participate. Guides are really helpful, and those without any experience get some training.
Only thing to add - 3 hours is not enough. Take longer tours, guys, it's totally worth it!

“ Wonderful! ”
I had one day on my own in Dubrovnik after my friends flew home, I met Darko on Stradun who recommended this sea kayaking tour. I had a great time! The guides were very friendly and looked after us all. They come off as really genuine guys that you would love to have a drink with! We kayaked out towards Lokrum and to a very cool beach in a cave where we had lunch. Our guide told us some really interesting stories and pointed out landmarks that we could see from the sea view of Dubrovnik. Wetsuits and lifejackets were provided and we got a wee tutorial on how to handle the kayak. I felt very safe throughout, the kayak was very stable and it was great value for money. Thanks guys!

“ A fantastic family day out. ”
After thoroughly enjoying our Kayaking to Lokrum with x-adventure last we have returned to repeat the experience again!! Folowing a thorough safety briefing we boarded our comfortable kayaks and headed off towards Lokrum with our knowledgable guide Dan. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip across the sea, stopping for a rest a various intervals to be given some information about the history of Dubrovnik. Once we arrived on the island Dan guided us around giving us a full tour and history of the island, patiently answering our many questions. After a sandwich and drink we headed back to Dubrovnik.
