We loved this tour, even with the added bonus of rough seas. Made it more of a challenge. Eddie was great, so knowledgeable and funny. Then a glass of wine as a reward that we made it back Loved it!

“ Ivan (GI Joe) was a great guide and we loved the sunset tour!! ”
My partner and I went on the sunset kayak tour today at 3:30pm. We started as a big group of 7 with 2 instructors. After the first leg to Lokrum some of the group were getting tired and slowing so the more experienced guide took them towards the cave and we were split with Ivan (GI Joe). During the briefing we were told that Ivan was in training and would be coming along to learn.
We just wanted to reach out and give Ivan the highest praise! He was so helpful and informative. His knowledge of Dubrovnik and Lokrum was so great we learnt so much from the tour. Ivan would be a great asset to your company as we felt safe and comfortable the entire time! We even shared some laughs and learnt lots too!
Thank you so much!

“ Enjoyable evening activity with stunning views! ”
We had a great time kayaking and it was amazing to see the old town out at sea! The views were surreal! Our hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable and it was typical that my mates were the only ones who capsized their kayak.. would definitely recommend but ensure you are not on low sleep like we were as it can get tiring.
Only downside was the tasting at the end, whilst it was good to taste Croatian wine I was expecting a more group tasting. Better in the evening as the sunset adds more beauty to the scenery.

“ Fantastic experiences and very nice guide tour ”
I enjoyed kayaking with x-adventure Dubrovnik for 8 times last year. Guide names are Dan, Darko and Eddie. They always took care of safety, talked to use about history of dubrovnik, and introduce nice points for diving and seeing sunset. I recommend this company for kayaking tour.
저는 작년에 이 업체에서 카약투어를 무려 8번이나 했었어여. 코스도 좋고, 안전에 신경도 마니쓰고, 스토리텔링도 좋았어여. 선셋을 볼수있는 코스로도 잘 데려다주고요. 저는 이 업체를 젤 추천합니당!

“ Great Sunset Tour! ”
We had a great time on our tour. Our instructor was Danny. He was fun, knowledgeable and helpful with kayaking tips. Danny shared many great stories that added to our experience. Would highly recommend this trip over any other company.
Can’t wait to take this tour again in the future!
Song0211 - 10 apr 2019, TripAdvisor
“ Great time. ”
Darko is the organizer and communicator of the company for my trip. Our first attempt of the trip was canceled due to rough sea conditions. Then we made it happen next day. All through, Darko has been open and honest with his communication.
Dan took us out and the condition is not ideal but definitely enjoyable. The company has gears so you don’t have to worry about storage and things getting wet.
As a beginner, I felt safe and well taken care of.
The view is nice and we got to ‘touched’ Lokrum Island as well.
Till next time. Although I looked the some of the photos of peak season and definitely like our adventures better with the whole cave to ourselves better. :)
MiamariaV - 29 jan 2019, TripAdvisor
“ Disorganised ”
Overall we had a decent time - it was lovely being out on the water, and the snorkeling/jumping off cliffs in the fisherman's cave was lovely! That was definitely the highlight for me, so it was a shame that we could only stay there for about half an hour.
The tour itself was very disorganised - our guide had a lot of information to share with us about the history of Dubrovnik, but he didn't convey it in a way that made sense to us. I also felt that some of the things he said were simply not true. Also, the guide and his helper managed to lose one of the participants on our tour - it was a single guy who was part of our tour group. There were several tour groups of kayakers out on the water, and he must have gotten confused and joined a different group/gone a different way by accident. The guides didn't realise they'd lost him until someone else in our group asked where the single guy was, and one of the guides paddled off quickly to find him. They managed to get him back, but if the girl who pointed out that he was gone hadn't done that I don't think they would have realised he was gone at all!

“ Do It!!! ”
I was on the fence about going. I have kayaked before and for some reason went back and forth. I am SO unbelievably happy that I did it. Dan our guide was fantastic. Funny, informative and well timed. We paddled to a small beach in a cave where we snorkled for a bit and had a snack. Then we paddled aroudn the island to an inlet where we got the chance to cliff dive (do it!) then we got back to land and had some local wine. You will get wet!!! I wore my bathing suite. They give you a dry bag for your stuff as well as a dry bucket to put some stuff you wont need redibly accessable. They do have a place for you to leave stuff behind. Not lockers but a little shed that has some staff. They have bathrooms to use as well. Lastly, they give you these wind jacket things in case it gets chilly later in the tour. Overall I would highly recommend it is something I'll never forget.
angelicque w - 14 oct 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Great tour! ”
A very affordable and fun trip. Dan hits the right balance of informative tour guide and easygoing lead kayaker. They provide food, a little wine after and the best view of the city and the sunset. This is worth a dozen walks on the wall !

“ Great! but no 'wine tasting' ”
We went on this trip and the guys at x-adventure are very professional and there is good quality equipment provided. The tour is very good and the guides very helpful and knowledgeable.
The only down side is this is labeled at a wine tasting experience when all it means is they include some wine at the end. It's very nice and completes the evening but not just ourselves on our group were confused by this.
Either way would recommend!

“ Amazing trip! ”
Me and my boyfriend had such a nice time on the sunset sea kayaking - we would both absolutely recommend trying it! Our guide, Dan, was super nice and friendly. The kayaking was kindof tricky, we both feel a bit knackered the day after haha, but i dont think you need to have any experience kayaking to be able to do this trip. The sunset was stunning.

“ Dan is the Man! ”
If want to do something different around Dubrovnik you should definitely try kayaking! And if you don't want to go through all the kayak tours available in Dubrovnik, let save you the trouble, X-Adventures is satisfaction guaranteed!
We were very lucky to do the tour with Dan, he is funny, knowledgeable of both kayaking and Dubrovnik history, and will make absolutely sure we will have a safe and wonderful time!
Dan will start be giving you all the equipment for the tour which includes a wetsuit, life vest, dry bag, easy access container, etc, then he will give you some tips about kayaking, the sea, and what the tour will include. After that you will be given a kayak and a paddle, and Dan will make sure you get safely into the sea. After that you just have to enjoy a lovely kayaking experience with some stops for Dubrovnik history, a snack on the beach, and the much anticipated wine!

“ Stunning & Worth it! ”
Our guide Eddie gave us the choice of going around Lokrum island or taking a more steady tour enjoying the views. We personally wanted to enjoy it more with a chilled atmosphere as were not huge fitness junkies. But the rest of the group wanted to go all around, so we did. Can be tough going at times but Eddie was lovely stopping & giving us a chance to catch our breath. We stopped off in the cave for a swim & sandwich. And travelled back towards the bay. All the stops we made Eddie talked us through the history of Dubrovnik & Old town which was great. After we watched the sun go down in the kayak we went back into the bay to get dry and warm and enjoyed a lovely little bottle of wine. Not so much a wine tasting but still as lovely.
Aisling H - 29 sep 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Great experience ”
We really enjoyed this, it was my first time kayaking and we all got to go in double kayaks which was helpful. Our guide Dan was very funny (cheeky!) and told us a lot about the history of Dubrovnik and Lokrum. The safety briefing and information given at the start was also very thorough. During the tour, the waves were pretty bad in some parts but we had loads of breaks to help with this. There was a break in the middle where everyone got sandwiches and a chance to snorkel with the equipment provided. You also get given a large dry bag and dry bucket at the start for your kayak. The only thing I would recommend is that dry jackets are provided as I saw other companies had these and I was frozen! Thank you for the lovely experience :)

“ Beautiful way to take in the Dubrovnik sunset! ”
The kayak trip was a great experience - we got very lucky with the weather. The water was warm and calm, and the sunset was gorgeous! We kayaked 7.5 kms, but it was not too strenuous. There were breaks to take pictures of the scenery and to swim (with snacks included), although the swimming spot was pretty crowded with other kayaking groups, but when we watched the sunset we were all by ourselves and had a great view! The wine served after the kayak trip was a great end to the experience!

“ Kayaking in beautiful surroundings with a great guide ”
We went for the sunset kayak trip from 4pm till 7pm. Our host and guide Mario was pleasant, knowledgeable, instructive and helpful throughout. He took us off the beaten track to a more private bay to swim and snorkel. He told us about Lokrum island and gave us a brief history of the conflict in 1991. We kayaked around 7km and it was a fantastic experience, thoroughly recommended. The best thing we’ve done while in Croatia and we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. Thank you Mario for helping to make it a special time.

“ Unmissable sunset experience ”
I was very apprehensive about sea kayaking but this turned out to be an unforgettable and safe adventure thanks to our guide Eddie and his apprentice Giovanni. The 7.5 tour paddling around the island of Otok Lokrum was entirely manageable and enjoyable for a 50something like myself. The four of us in our two kayaks managed to keep up with the party all the way. Watching the beautiful sunset over the Old Town and the sea at the end of the trip was truly magical. The wine at the end was very good too. All in all an excellent adventure. Thank you so much Eddie and X Adventure.

“ Sunset kayaking ”
We did the sunset kayak tour with Eddy.
It was a good group size and plenty of time to rest along the way.
Kayaking was great and a stop off on Lokrum to swim in a cave was fun.
The tour guide didn't really seem to like his job or Croatia and wasn't too professional with some of his comments which was a shame.
But the sunset was beautiful.

“ Highlight of the trip! ”
My partner booked this for my birthday as a surprise evening out during our stay at dubrovnik, upon arrival the staff where very welcoming and conversational, after a briefing and a description of the tour we got straight to it. due to the sea being a bit rough we didn't go around the island however this didn't effect the experience, nikoli was the main tour guide and provided a comical and informative history of dubrovnik. the tour led us to a cave whith a small beech that gave us the chance to have a break and a sandwich that they provided. while on the beech snorkeling gear is provided for use when having a swim offering an amzing view of the sea floor and the fish swimming around. after heading back and seeing the beautiful sunset, local wine is provided for a social drink with the others from the group. my partner asked them if they offer any birthday options, while enjoying the wine the lads from the tour came over with a cake and extra wine while sining happy birthday. They proceeded to spend the evening with us and others it was an amazing evening and the guys that work there really did make it.

“ Stunning view of the city at sunset ”
We booked the sunset tour with wine. The tour was great, we had a great guide who took us around the Lokrum island with the kayak. We went snorkeling for a bit although the cave was quite crowded. We picked the perfect moment to leave and see the sunset. Only minus was the group size and that they scheduled us earlier and then we had to wait for another group to retun. Thanks to our guide, sry don’t recall the name, also for the history catch up on Dubrovnik.

“ An amazing adventure ”
This was an amazing adventure. The X-Adventure crew is kind, respectful and takes safety very seriously. You board two-people kayaks and go kayaking the Adriatic Sea, watching the beautiful coast from the water. You rest in a small rocky beach, have a snack and then go back kayaking in time to see the sun set in the sea. It is important to mark that this is not an activity for everyone. I struggled paddling alone in a kayak with my 7 years old daughter, the sea was rough and windy. Having said that, it was an incredible adventure and I would not change a thing. It was my choice to go do it and I take full responsibility for the tiredness. I highly recommend this company. Philip was great and the other guy who's name I don't remember, was amazing as well (very thoughtful of my tiredness).
taniafrancis - 03 sep 2018, TripAdvisor
“ Beautiful but could be a bit better!! ”
Really pleased we did this! It was a lovely experience and the staff were delightful and helpful. It was not too strenuous and thoroughly enjoyable to be out and see the City from another viewpoint. The girl who took us was quite quiet, but informative when we stopped, which we did on a few occasions.
We used the small dry-pot were were offered, just to store towels, phone etc...though we did use the camera a lot! Worth making sure it is waterproof, just incase!
The stop in the caves was fun, though trying to go for a swim was a challenge...firstly there were so many kayaks being moved in and out of the cave that you have to be very careful to avoid them. Secondly the masks/snorkels we were given were not good & not worth using. The snack also could have been better.
Paddling back in as the sun was setting was magical...though I would liked to have stayed out just a little longer. One of our team, a solo paddler, appeared to get left behind by the crowd, though he didn't mind and nor did we as we waited for him to catch up with our kayak.
Back at base, we were invited to try the local wine, which was very pleasant to finish an enjoyable outing.

“ Very Good Tour ”
y girlfriend and I did the sunset tour a few days ago with Eddie. Eddie is very entertaining and knowledgeable, and was a fantastic guide throughout the 3+ hour tour. We are both in our mid- to late- twenties and found the kayaking piece the perfect balance of fun and challenging. However, we're both still confused about the first stop of the tour, which was a small beach that was so densely packed with kayakers and people that there was literally no more room to fit another kayak on shore. Eddie apologized and noted that the beach was not normally like that, but nonetheless, that was about 20-30 minutes of wasted time. To be fair, we also took the tour on a beautiful Friday night during peak tourist season, so we should have expected crowds. If what Eddie said was true about the crowded beach being a fluke, then this is a five-star tour.

“ loads of fun, perfectly organized, unforgettable sunset ”
In short: do the sunset tour! We enjoyed immensely. The X - Adventure team was very professional, very well organized and Nicola was a wonderful guide on the water! In the course of three hours we paddled roughly 8 km, stopped for a snack and some snorkeling at a little cave and returned to a breathtaking sunset! FYI: Our seven year-old daughter could sit in the middle of our kayak, so it‘s a great activity for families! Have fun!

This was one of the definite highlights in Dubrovik. Amazing experience of kayaking around the Dubrovnik area (around 8km). We had a very kind, professional, and engaged tour guide (Nicola), and finally met new people afterwards at a glass of wine.

Very nice tour. The kayaking is tough going so you'd want to be fit. It was great to see Dubrovnik from the water and hear about the history. It's definitely not a wine tasting tour. You just get a free small bottle of wine at the end! It was hard to get a chance to stop for photos (got told to move on when I tried), but other than that I'd highly recommend this.

Not much of a sunset.... but a really lovely kayak around the island beyond dubrovnik.

Was really looking forward to this tour. Great communication before the tour via email.
Unfortunately the organisation was a bit chaotic as we were getting ready with what seemed like a number of different companies; quite easy to get lost from your group in the crowds.
The beach we arrived at was lovely....just absolutely rammed with a number of different tours.
Went around lokrum and back which was nice. Wine was ok.
Was just expecting a slightly better experience given the great reviews on here. Unfortunately our experience didn't quite meet up to the high quality reviews of other people.
Maybe it was just an off evening but would not do again.

We were on the sunset tour with this company 3 years ago, and back then our guide was Dan the man. These last years were a torture, we missed Dan and the kayaks so we decided to go back to Dubrovnik and do it again. Our guides Edi, Mateo, and Matija were spectacular. We learned so much about the culture and the history of the area, and the sandwiches were absolutely delicious. Almost as delicious as Dan the man. We came back for Dan but we discovered Matija, Mateo and Edi!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to come back! xx

Very fun kayak experience. My guide was Dan ‘the man’ and he lived up to his name. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Made sure everyone felt welcome! The equipment was all in very good shape and they have dry bags and jar for your things while you are in the water. Snorkeling, cliff diving and swimming are all a part of it. The wine and beer after is a great reward for a successful journey! The staff hung out with us, gave tips on where else to go and were all just very friendly! Highly recommend!

This activity was one of the highlights of my trip to Dubrovnik. Lots of kayaking, staff are friendly and very funny. The ‘’snack’’ turned out to be a bread roll and fruit (veggie option even available) which we ate on the beautiful cave beach. Staff provided snorkelling gear which I recommended using. I would note that the kayaking is quite strenuous so rest up beforehand! When we got back to Dubrovnik we celebrated our efforts with lots of local wine (really there was so much available). All the guests chatted and it was a nice social end to the outing. Great for couples, families and solo travellers!

Regardless of the weather conditions, our guides Edi, Mateo & Darko (sure I spelt most of those incorrectly, apologies) were amazing and I wouldn't fault them at all. They were helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and making jokes, but always safe. I felt safe with them. We went on the trip to an island and got a snack (veggie option available) and then went snorkelling in a secret beach/cave area. Once we got back we had quite a bit of wine too, provided by an excellent bartender. All in all, I loved it and can't wait to do it next time I'm there! Thanks guys :) Roxanne

“ Caring and professional tourguides ”
We went on a kayak tour today with the lovely Eddy and matteo today and not only were they professional in their teaching first timers (us), they were also really funny and entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of dubrovnik.
Unfortunately I fell sick during the early part of the kayak tour and matteo guided us back to the beach where the lovely Dan waited for us and helped look after me.
All three men were just always on the lookout for me and ensured that we were ok. On top of all that, they still gave my partner wine and a partial refund which we totally did not expect.
These guys will go above and beyond and will ensure that even if you fall sick like I did, that you will still have a good time (and learn alot about the history).
I couldn't recommend them enough!

“ Beautiful way to experience Dubrovnik ”
Kayaking was quite a workout, but worth the sunset views and private beach time. The wine at the end was a nice treat (not necessarily wine tasting though). The guides are energetic and fun. The guides provide you with a bag to store all your belongings and a secure waterproof bin to keep your camera/electronics accessible and safe. The informational/tour component wasn't the most informative, but then again, that's not whyI was necessarily drawn to this tour. The kayaking itself was the highlight, and this tour delivered on that! Thanks for a fun ending to my time in Croatia!

This was a lot of fun. It's quite a workout, but our guide, Matteo, was amazing and very informative.

Watching the sunset from the water is not something I will easily forget. Thanks, Matteo!

“ The best thing I’ve done so far in Dubrovnik! ”
We went on the sunset sea kayaking tour on the second evening of our stay in Dubrovnik. The guides Matteo and Edi were so knowledgable of the city and delivered the tour in a fun, bitesize way over the stops. The sea swimming/diving/snorkelling in the private cave was awesome and the wine tasting at the end was a great way to chat to the rest of the group. I’m not the fittest person, and my partner was constantly making jokes in the run up to how he’d be doing all of the work, but even I could competently keep a good pace. Even so, the guides are great and keep to the pace of the slowest at the back. I’d 110% recommend this to anyone considering and will be returning when I’m next back in Dubrovnik!

Will definitely do this again on my next trip to Croatia!

“ Stop reading and just book it now! ”
We went on the sunset kayaking tour with Dan and it was the best thing we did in our week in Dubrovnik. You have two to a kayak and you get all the necessary equipment - including a dry-bag and box for phones etc. Just remember sunblock as you will burn without it!
Dan was our guide and he was brilliant. Laid-back, but took it at an easy pace, making sure that everyone stayed as a group. The kayaking itself isn't hard work, but you obviously need to be reasonably physically fit, as it's 7.5km and takes around three hours. There are lots of breaks though, water is provided and a sandwich midway through.
Dan had lots of interesting stories about the various places you go past, but the most affecting was when he told us about the siege during the war and his own personal story.
In summary, I can't recommend this enough and I haven't even mentioned the sea caves, dodging cruise ships, snorkelling, GoT references, nudist beaches, the beautiful sunset from the water and so much more!
Book it now!

“ Possibly the most memorable night in Dubrovnik! ”
Don't make the mistake of skipping out! Went with my girlfriend and had an amazing time! You are provided with everything you need! As mentioned you get a dry bag and box for phones and cameras. The kayak journey is amazing as are the beaches and caves visited. The wine drinking was epic... much more an open bar then small samples! Our guide was Edi, your super lucky if you get him!

“ Best thing we did in Dubrovnik ”
We booked the Sunset tour because we thought it sounded the nicest of the bunch.. plus the wine tasting!
The instructors were all really nice and charismatic guys with very good English. We had a guy called EDI (myyy man) who took us off around Lokrum island, stopping to tell us about the history of Dubrovnik, and really made it inclusive to everyone in the group, he was happy to answer any questions.. no matter how stupid they were. Great views! Cool cove!
Then after, the wine testing ended up being more like wine drinking and it was just really fun, ended up having our best night in Dubrovnik hanging out with the instructors and people from our kayaking tour, they were all really good guys, trustworthy and funny!
If I ever came back I would 100% do this again, great fun!

“ A must-do in Dubrovnik! ”
Thoroughly enjoyed this sea kayaking tour. The sunset was goregous, the kayaking was great fun and Nikola and Edi were wonderful guides, extremely knowledgeable alongside being fun and humorous lads. Ended with some lovely Croatian wine, what more could you want!?

Our sunset kayaking tour was amazing and was a good start to our Croatia trip. Edy, our guide, was wonderful and gave us an overview of Dubrovnik as well. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

“ Amazing Sunset Kayak Trip! ”
We looked around a few different companies before finding X-Adventures, and we were absolutely thrilled with our experience with our tour guide Edi! Edi was very knowledgable about Dubrovnik and was helpful in teaching how to kayak for beginners before the tour. We visited two caves and had the opportunity to snorkel, cliff jump, and swim during our kayak trip. They provided fantastic sandwiches during the trip and local wine at the end. We paddled back to the meeting point at the end while overlooking the sunset, my friend and I had a phenomenal experience! The beaches you visit are very rocky, so investing in swim shoes may be helpful, but we went barefoot and were fine for the short time on the beach.

“ Great price for an incredible experience! Absolutely worth it! ”
This experience for me personally was one of my favorite things I was able to do in Dubrovnik. You’re able to get some incredible views of the Old Town wall with a beautiful sunset. Truly one of the more beautiful places I’ve ever visited.
While on the kayak, it got a bit tiring but the tour is designed in a way that breaks up the path to give you rests. During those rests includes historic stories about Dubrovnik and also enjoying a natural small sea cove. There at the cove you’ll be able to snorkel so bring your GoPro! They’ll also provide snacks for you during breaks so they truly take care of you and want you to have a great time! My girlfriend and I have only had one prior experience with kayaking so don’t be afraid that this would be too rigorous of an experience.
Because the weather can dictate your experience, my girlfriend and I were in contact with them the whole time while the weather was questionable (rain clouds in the distance) and they were very helpful and accommodating, offering other options at the time. It was very easy to communicate with them. Just give them an email and they’ll respond quickly. We were lucky enough to have the rain pass and the skies clear which allowed us to experience the sunset tour. Absolutely great service!
Lastly, they provide dry bags for towels and such, while also providing a water proof buoy container for your phones for easy access. The wine was also good! They picked a local Croatian wine. Most of this information can be found on the brochure but I wanted to reiterate these specific aspects of the tour because they truly made it easy for us to have a great time.
All in all, there is a reason why this kayaking tour company has mostly 5 stars. I haven’t read the other ratings which should have some merit so go ahead and be thorough in your review readings. But if you were to ask me, I would say absolutely do it!

“ Great time and stunning sunset! ”
We had a great time with Edi and Marta! They went at a good pace and stopped whenever there was a beautiful picture opportunity. The places you can swim at were very nice. It’s a fun kayak to do, and see Dubrovnik from the Sea. Edi was extremely knowledgeable in the history of Dubrovnik/Croatia which made the tour even more enjoyable. I highly recommend doing the sunset kayak tour with Edi or Marta!

“ Fantastic perspective of Dubrovnik with extra stories ”
we took a trip which was supposed to end up with sunset view on Dubrovnik. Everything was well beyond expectations. Our guide - Edi, had plenty of things to talk about, some fun facts about Dubrovnik and surrounding areas, some history of it etc. What is most important you can ask like anything, so you get a tour guide only on water and with better view :). Don't mind that you are not experienced kayaker, the guide makes a lot of stops, keeps the group together and give some time for conversations and taking photos. The tour route takes you to few interesting places, a beach, a cave where you can spend some active time with snorkel (provided by the company), jumping from rocks and boulders. Of course at the very end as promised there is a perfect view on Dubrovnik - sunset edition. As soon as you get to the finish, wet or dry - doesn't matter, wine tasting is waiting for you, which is a pleasant accent. Thanks Edi for the trip! Totally worth it!

“ Amazing excursion with Dan ”
I went on the sunset tour as a bit of a last minute whim. It was the BEST decision I made, the tour itself was great and Dan was very knowledgeable. If you do get a chance to to a kayaking tour i seriously recommend. If you can, see if Dan is leading the tour. He wont disappoint you.

“ Great kayak tour ”
We had a great time paddling for awesome views of Dubrovnik city, caves and Lokrum. I was worried about the cold in April, but it turned out fine when you are under the sun and out of water. Our guide, Dan, was really fun and helpful. He told stories about the place and Croatia. He even towed us on our way back to the bay as we were falling behind, in exchange for a 5-star review (so here it is!!). Just kidding. Dan and the tour worth 10-star each! Highly recommend to people who want some exercise while enjoying the spectacular views!

Dont think to much of doing it, and MAKE IT, IS THE BEST EXPERIENCE!!

We did the sunset kayak, which was lovely and we had the perfect view from the ocean! Everything were needed was provided, from wetsuits to waterproof bags to water. The tour catered for both experienced to inexperienced kayakers, and our guide was friendly and informative.

“ Best part of our trip! ”
We were SO excited for our sunset kayak tour and it did not disappoint.
Darko, our guide knew his stuff - he was responsible for our group and took his job very seriously, we felt totally safe in his hands even when the sea got a bit choppy. Also, ask him ANYTHING about his home and the history and he can tell you.
Such a great experience, great guide, great sandwich, great wine - would do it again in a heartbeat.
Also great value for money considering Dubrovnik is quite an expensive place.

“ Best Thing We Have Ever Done! ”
We took the Sunset kayak tour around Dubrovnik yesterday. What can I say? It was amazing, even for a fully paid up scaredy cat like me. Lovely stable kayaks, great stop for swimming and a sandwich, stunning views, fantastic guides with great info, and so much kindness to us personally. Can't thank them enough for an amazing experience. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

“ 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.

Great thing to do at sunset. Renato was a funny tour guide and kept a good pace for everyone. Great value for the money. Would do again.

“ Could not have been any better ”
Booked the sunset kayak tour with wife and 9yr old boy through Direct Bookers - 550kunar for all three. The guide Darian was super nice and knowledgeable, everything was as described on booking website. Quick introduction and explanation from guides, 20 minute kayak, then break, some stories from Darian, more kayak then on to caves, private beach, snorkelling and around Lokrum island for the glorious sunset. It is physically demanding (our kayak had 2 x adults and 1 x kid) so be prepared to put the effort in. My family have only done kayaking once or twice but managed no problem. Up there with one of the best things we've done as a family. We all loved it. Arriving back into 'kings landing' at the end for a seemingly endless supply of Croatian wine was the perfect end. Big shout to Dan for keeping our glasses full and Darian for all the great storytelling. Seek out X-Adventure tours, 100% recommend. They also provide water, sandwiches, waterproof bags, so all you need to do is turn up. Had great craic with Dan too, sent us home with a complimentary bottle of Croatia's finest.
Ps - if you like what they do, give the guys a tip. We did, but did not notice anyone else do so and it's a tough enough gig :-)

“ Darko and his team at X-Adventure Sea Kayaking is the only outfit to use! ”
We stumbled upon Darko and his X-Adventure Sea Kayaking company when we were having a drink at a small cove and saw his kayakers coming in from an early evening trip around the island Lokrum. We went out the next night around 5pm and finished after sunset at 9pm or so. Our guide, Darijan was really a great guy and funny and full of information about Dubrovnik, the history and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip with him as we stopped numerous times to listen and rest, etc. The sandwiches provided were extremely fresh made that day, and we HIGHLY recommend this company. Darko is one of the owners and one of the original Sea Kayak companies and you can trust him and he is also a funny guy with a nice sense of humor. He also sent us to an EXCELLENT restaurant about 4 miles outside of town and I am trying to remember the name of the place. It was so much better than any of the touristy and pricey places inside the walls in Dubrovnik. We only had 6 or 7 of us in our tour, we were lucky and the person attention was fantastic. My wife and 16 year old son and 20 year old daughter really had a great time and dinner tasted so good when we were done.

“ Must-do in Dubrovnik! ”
A lot of the reviews on here and on other tours suggest sea kayaking is very hard work; I am overweight and extremely unfit and I managed it just fine! The sea was perfectly calm on the day my brother and I did this, perhaps that's why. The guide stopped regularly to let us rest and have water. My shoulders are a little achy today, the next day, but that's all. I had never kayaked and I'm not an active person but I enjoyed every single minute! It's even inspired me to check out kayaking near my home as I want to try more!
Being out on the open water was just amazing. We did the morning tour; I would definitely recommend this or the sunset one as I think the sun would be horrendous in the middle of the day!
You will need:
- phone/camera - you will want pics! (Waterproof floating barrel provided for valuables)
- cash (they don't accept cards)
- also recommend a pair of swim shoes or decent sandals you don't mind getting wet (i wore flip flops and traversing the slippy rocks and pebbly beach at the stop point was tricky!)
Our guide, Antonio, was knowledgeable and engaging, and best of all funny.
I really cannot recommend this enough!!

“ So much fun!!! ”
A group of 4 of us did the sunset kayak tour along with a fairly big group of others and 2 tour guides. We were luckily enough to have nice people in our group and the tour guides were great! Lovely and knowledgable about Dubrovnik and Lokrum island. The had good sense of humours too which made it even more fun. They showed us safe places to cliff jump and stopped regularly so we could take pictures and to tell us more about the different things we could see. We kayaked to a lovely cove that is only accessible by boat, where we were given sandwiches, drinks and snorkels! It was a great place to swim and snorkel. The overall trip was around 3 hours long. Well worth the money and was a huge highlight of our trip!!

Brilliant guide with great stories about the city and Lokrum Island

“ Amazing Kayaking in Dubrovnik at 50 ”
Six of us took the sunset sea kayak trip in tandem kayaks and we all thought it was an amazing 3 hours!
We were warned was a bit choppy but I guess this added to the adventure of it all where we kayaked around Lokrum island, into caves and stopped off for a sandwich in a small beach cave for the chance to rest up, swim and snorkel.
The tour leader Daniel did a great job and both guys were really friendly, helpful and made sure no one was left behind.
Totally recommend, just make sure you have your sea legs if it's rough.
