What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Outdoor Croatia Sea Kayaking, Svetoga Krizha 3, Dubrovnik 20000 Croatia

Starting from Dubrovnik’s Gruž Harbor in the morning, we'll hop on the ferry to beautiful Elaphite islands. Our stop is central island - Lopud.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lopud Island, Dubrovnik Croatia

Upon arrival to Lopud and after a safety talk and kayaking instructions, we set off across the channel for the island of Šipan. Heading south and west, we first paddle to a natural stone arch which is a perfect photo-op. Under this archway, you can see the Adriatic sea open up in all of its glory.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Sipan, Dubrovnik Croatia

Next, we regroup and paddle along the coast to the hidden Green Cave. We’ll then tie up our kayaks and get ready for a wonderful morning of swimming and cliff jumping. But first, we’ll grab snorkels and masks and swim down through the cave’s opening. Very few know about this cave … even the locals. Inside,there is plenty of room for swimming and even standing. This large, and safe, cave opens up to reveal an ethereal green light caused by the sun’s reflection off the sandy bottom. After, the group will swim in the deep cove outside the grotto’s entrance and try some cliff jumping.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Sipan, Dubrovnik Croatia

We continue on to the delightful fishing village of Šuđurađ, on Šipan, for a lunch of local delicacies. We'll have some free time after lunch for sightseeing.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Lopud Island, Dubrovnik Croatia

Following lunch, we paddle back toward Lopud. Before calling it a day, we stop at the island of Ruda - our third island of the day – to explore and kayak into another cave. Guests will be back on Lopud in time for a walk and for the evening ferry back to Dubrovnik.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Port Gruz, Obala Pape Ivana Pavla II 13, Dubrovnik 20000 Croatia

We'll finish the day by taking the ferry to Dubrovnik in the evening.

Duration: 1 hour

Departure Time

Since we start the tour with a ferry ride, our meeting time is directly connected with ferry schedule. Schedule is different for shoulder season and for high season, so first thing you need to check is whether your tour takes place in shoulder season or in high season. Additionally, Sundays and public holidays (listed below) have different schedule than other week-day.

So IF if your tour takes place in high season – from June 29 till August 26 than this applies to you

Monday to Saturday we meet at 9.35 a.m. for 10 a.m. ferry.

Sunday & Holidays we meet at 8:40 for 9: 00 a.m. ferry.

OR,IF your tour takes place in shoulder season  from August 27 to November 1 this applies to you:

Monday to Saturday we meet at 9.35 a.m. for 10 a.m. ferry.

Sunday & Holidays we meet at 9:10 a.m. for 9:30 a.m. ferry.

 These are the dates for 2018 public holidays in Croatia, so if your tour is on any of those dates, apply Sunday schedule:

Aug 5 Saturday Homeland Thanksgiving Day

Aug 15 Tuesday Assumption of Mary

Oct 8 Sunday Independence Day

Please keep in mind that although weather is perfect most of the time, sometimes it can be windy or choppy. Very rarely we get really bad weather in period between May and September, but it's more common that you get clouds in the morning. When that happens, many people who are not local think weather will be bad all day. Same applies to the winds; not all winds are bad for kayaking, but you need to have the experience to be able to safely predict how things will turn out.

This is where we come in. We are the experts in reading local weather forecast and we'll make a final decision whether to cancel a tour or not by 8.30 am on the day of the tour. Our primary concern is the well-being of our clients, so we would never make a decision based on a blind ambition to make few extra Kunas. We realize people book our tours to have fun, and if we think conditions will prevent us from having fun, we will cancel. In case you don't hear from us by 8,30 am, it means tour is a go!
