Sea kayaking Dubrovnik/Elafiti

This tour is designed for those who love being active in the nature. Daily routes are rather short - 2 to 3 hours of easy paddling  - and not demanding, fit for all ages between 14 and late sixties (no previous kayaking experience is necessary). Dubrovnik and Elafiti shorelines are rich in history and natural variety - cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches...

Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to Elafiti Islands Archipelago - green islands covered by pine forests, without car traffic, with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, less than an hour sailing time from Dubrovnik. Each has no more than a couple of hundreds permanent residents who live in stone houses of traditional character.

Tall palm trees, parks, gardens and flowers everywhere contribute to easy going life style. Occasionally groups of kayaks are escorted by friendly dolphins or tunas that are often seen in the area.

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.
