“Lovely but not perfect”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

I'm a young fit guy and I thought this was going to be a little bit of a challenge, however, it was slow going the whole way. Which in hindsight makes sense seeing as it has to cater for everyone. Though I was told that there was cliff jumping, and that didn't happen. But the guide was great, informative and funny. The caves were amazing as well. Make sure you use the snorkels, they are well worth it.

Dear Tom,
We appreciate your comment. Safety is our prime concern. We have been in operation since 2004 and we work with some of the most distinguished adventure travel agencies from UK, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, Australia, France, Holland, Denmark, etc. In all of our contracts safety comes first. Our guides do not encourage the clients to jump from the cliffs and unlike some of our competitiors we do not promote cliff jumibg on our website.
Cliff jumping is one of the most dangerous extreme sports. However, if some of the clients insist on cliff jumping they can do it on their own responsibility.
All of our guides are trained according to international standards and some of them were in Croatian National Kayaking Team. We work in small groups and we ensure that each of the clients is given needed attention and training.

“Kayaking week”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Fantastic week of kayaking. Solo traveller in a group of 9 (including guide) and felt very settled in a group that generally wanted to socialise together. The guide was expert (I understand that he has competed at National level), relaxed and very accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Some of the kayaking was a challenge when the wind and the waves picked up, but very satisfying at the end. The best evening for me was a meal on a local farm with delicious home made wine and goat (I think that's what it was). Definitely recommend Adria Adventure to anybody who wants a week of activity, some relaxation and good evenings.

“Excellent Sea Kayaking in Stunning setting!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were a family group of 11, with 12yrs the youngest to 48 the oldest. We were extremely well looked after throughout and the previously non-paddler gave the biggest thumbs up at the end of the 3 days sea kayaking experience. Our guides Amir and Ivan were fantastic and couldn't do enough to make it a memorable experience, for all the right reasons. We were matched with 2 smaller family groups and the enlarged group of 19 worked really well. Our group formation was described as 'anarchy' trying to keep everyone together being a challenge! I have no reservations nor hesitation in recommending the company and the activities they offer and I fully intend to bring other friends back for a return visit soon!

“Fantastic sea kayaking experience”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We had a brilliant day out on the Three Islands tour. Our guide was friendly and helpful with lots of interesting local stories and information, as well as tips on how to paddle. He met us at the port in Dubrovnik and stayed with us until we returned to Sipan, when we had some free time to wander around and explore until the ferry back. The kayaking itself was great fun and not too difficult - we had kayaked and canoed before (though never on the sea) so he didn't waste lots of time telling us things we already knew! Diving and exploring the secret cave was one of the highlights, as was the beautiful scenery and refreshing breeze on a very hot day! The excursion was fantastic value for money and I would recommend it to beginners and people with some paddling experience too.

“Unbelievably Good Day”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

First off, the value for money is brilliant on this- an entire days entertainment and guiding for approximately £40 after conversion.

The guide himself was brilliant, a guy named Ivan, so relaxed and friendly and liked to play around with you but also obviously knew exactly what he was doing.

I'd not really kayaked before, but it was easy to get to grips with. Within 15 minutes of setting off we were in beautiful open seas, sun shining, no wind and with a dolphin jumping in the water about 100 metres to our right. Total bliss.

The stops are excellent too, really relaxed! The green cave is stunning, colour of the water is unreal. You get time to just swim in the sea or they provide free snorkeling gear too. Also highly recommend taking the jump off the cliff at the cave....wicked!

It is a tiring day, but one thats totally worth it in every way.

Couldnt recommend this company and the 3 island tour enough.

Thanks guys
