This tour, which is suitable for kayakers of all experience levels and ages, has something for everyone.
We meet in our base on Lopud. After instructions about paddling techniques and safety, we’ll begin our circumnavigation of the island, which is famous for its sandy beaches and limestone cliffs.
Paddling to the southwest, you’ll immediately have views of majestic limestone cliffs towering above. But these Karst phenomena also have a hidden treat awaiting: caves. Our guides will steer you to some of these secret getaway spots, where we can snorkel inside and get an insider’s perspective of the island’s formation. For those brave souls who also want a bird’s-eye view, these are perfect — and safe — places for cliff jumping.
At the halfway point of our excursion, the group will stop for a lunch at the sandy beach of Sunj. After, we’ll swim, lounge, or try the popular traditional game picigin, which is something like free-form volleyball played in the water. Refreshed, we’ll complete the round trip journey before heading back to Dubrovnik in the late afternoon.
What to bring: drinking water, sun block, hat, sunglasses (with a leash) and long-sleeve T-shirt if you are particularly sensitive to the sun. Bathing suits should be worn under your clothes and active sandals (Teva, Merrell, etc.) are great for kayaking and light hiking although we provide guests on day-tours with basic aqua shoes. Towel is useful. Bring spare (warm) clothes in pre and post season. Except that you’ll need some cash for lunch.
