The water is crystal clear, the beach is beautiful and the paddle through Zaton Bay was nice & relaxed. Best of all, Ivor was a great guide who we learned a lot from, both out on the water and on the drive to the site. It was so great to get his perspective on the area, including some stellar restaurant picks for later. Would highly recommend as a way to get close to that beautiful water you’ve been looking at from Old Town.

I can only recommend to book with Ivan and Igor if you want to go kayaking in Dubrovnik.
They were very nice and patient, thoroughly explained everything and took great care of us.
They told us loads if interesting details of all the surrounding islands and places to visit in and near Dubrovnik.
Thank you guys for looking after us, we’ve had a great time.
Surely we will be back!

Our half day of sea kayaking was a highlight of our trip to Croatia. Ivan was professional and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. In addition to kayaking we also enjoyed cliff jumping and swimming. I would highly recommend Adriatic Kayak Tours and Ivan to anyone visiting Dubrovnik.

Our 3 day kayak trip was simply fantastic. Our guide Ivan was superb and great company. It was all just fabulous. Well organised, friendly, relaxed, great food and drink and amazing sea kayaking experiences (and the extra bonus walks on the islands too!).

Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to kayak beyond the bay and go through the caves so we were not able to do this or go cliff jumping. We were also not led to a good snorkelling spot so we just kayaked around the Bay. The guides were good and you could tell they were safe but the trip itself was a little underwhelming. We had 11 in our group so there was a lot of waiting around both at the start and the end of the trip.

Unfortunately, we can't control the weather. Client safety is a primary concern. You refer to "guides". Our maximum group size is 8/ AKT guide; a second guide was added to accommodate the larger group. There are plenty of sea kayaking companies in Dubrovnik that take out groups of 50 people or more- City Walls and Lokrum Island tours. Because of the weather (and perhaps the group's level of experience), your guides did not feel it was appropriate (safe) to leave the bay and paddle in the open sea. One of the great features of our 1/2 day Zaton Bay kayak tour is that you can stay in the protected waters of the 2.5 km deep bay and still have an amazing experience. Zaton Bay is lovely. 10 km north of Dubrovnik, the bay has 3 small villages filled with coastal life and is free of the high volume unregulated motor boat traffic encircling Dubrovnik and Lokrum Island.

We had a fabulous day with Tammy doing the half day Zaton Bay tour. We were driven out of the city to Zaton Bay, got into the kayaks, paddled around the coast, stopped at a sheltered cove where we swam, snorkled and cliff jumped, and then paddled back. The scenery was wonderful, and all the activities were great fun! It was lovely to see the fish, and it was a great spot for diving into the water.

The difference between this and other Dubrovnik kayak hire is that Adriatic Kayaks do full week kayaking holidays, and so are set up with real kayaking in mind. Many of the tours you can book in the city are very large groups in the busy harbour, with two-person sit-on-top kayaks. Adriatic Kayak Tours drive you up the coast away from the city, and have single person kayaks with sprayskirts and storage compartments, and smaller groups. 'Realer' does come with slightly more effort (we helped carry the kayaks down to the water, and rinsed off our kit at the end of the trip, and there aren't any loos or changing rooms!) but it is much more fun. It was great to have one kayak each so you could paddle where you wanted to and really feel how the boat responded to you.

Spending half a day on the ocean with Adriatic Kayak Tours was truly the highlight of our entire trip! The guides were so knowledgable and they took us to some gorgeous spots to swim, snorkel, and cliff dive. Highly recommend this tour to all travelers who love exploring beautiful places from the water!

I recently was in Dubrovnik for 4 days with my family. We had a morning free and wanted to do a last-minute kayak trip. We happened upon a brochure in the tourist information center for Adriatic Kayak Tours and decided to stop by their office and see if they had any availability. Booking the 1/2 day Zaton bay excursion was super easy which was especially nice because it was so last minute. Our tour guide was Dui ( I'm sorry if I spelled that incorrectly) and he was great. He was very careful to explain everything we needed to know and we all felt very safe with him. We kayaked to a small cave and then over to a secluded beach where we were able to cliff jump, snorkel, and take a small hike to a scenic overlook. They provided all equipment including the snorkeling gear. It really was a great time and I would absolutely recommend it.

From the beginning of this trip, my husband and I knew were in excellent hands. Before we even got in the water, Ivan took the time to teach both of us how to paddle, how to get into our gear, and secured our things in a water-proof container. Then we were off! The water was unbelievably clear and calm (apparently this is common in the Adriatic, making it perfect for beginners!), and Ivan was so friendly and knowledgeable about everything (the area's history, class, politics, wildlife...). We explored a cave, and swam and snorkeled in Zaton Bay (the water was a little cold). We could have done some cliff diving too, and swam in the cave--Ivan let us dictate the tour and move at our own pace. We were the only two on the tour that morning, due to a last minute cancellation, which was lucky for us, but it's an absolute shame that more people aren't taking advantage of Adriatic Kayak Tours. It was our favorite part of our Croatian vacation--absolutely beautiful and Ivan's expert handling made it easy too.

We went on a morning tour with out guide and two other tour-takers. We had a great time! Never went kayaking before but our guide explained everything very well. The views are beautiful and the cliff-jumping was a lot of fun. Would recommend to anyone!
