Dubrovnik Kayaking Experience
Welcome to Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik kayaking is a great way to experience Dubrovnik from another perspective. Fun, sun, exploring beaches and caves, enjoying a superb view of The Old town, swimming, snorkelling – it’s more than enough for an unforgettable day!
Lokrum is great for a daily excursion – it’s near Dubrovnik, and is a particularly interesting island for both its nature and its history – and its more recent distinction as a Game of thrones filming location.
The legend of the Lokrum Curse began when a French army general ordered the expulsion of the Benedictines and closure of the monastery. After the last mass was celebrated on the island, the monks donned their hooded cloaks and walked around Lokrum in a procession. They went around the island three times with lighted candles turned upside-down towards the earth so that the flame licked the wax, which left a melted trail. During the ceremony, they were chanting the words of the curse: “Whoever claims Lokrum for his own pleasure shall be damned!” Then they embarked on a boat, left the island and never returned.
Around the island coast you can find many interesting caves, beaches and rocks like the Blue Cave and Ploče beach, famous for its large flat rocks which is also an open air theatre used for plays and concerts during Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
On the island you can visit the amazing botanical garden, with over 200 plants from all over the world. You can swim in a Dead Sea, a salt lake connected to the open sea, visit an old Benediction monastery or just wander the footpaths through the peaceful pine tree forest.
An interesting location is the Betina cave, accessible only by sea, an ideal place for swimming or cliff diving.
Experience all of this on a Dubrovnik kayaking tour and have a fun with your friends.
