From the very outset we were looked after by our excellent guide Amir. Everything ran like clockwork, from the transfers to catching the ferry to the island etc. Once on Lopud we were transported into a stunning & unspoilt small island. The water quality around these islands is truly incredible, warm, clear, with an abundance of fish & octopus. We swam into the Green sea caves which was simply magical, like entering another world. We kayaked from Lopud to neighbouring islands, covering up to 17kl on one particular day. We soon loved our kayaks with a passion, arriving into little harbours by kayak is incredible. To see places from the sea gives a totally different perspective. Kayaking into the sunset has to be one of the most sensational experiences of my life.
On several evenings we partook into yoga classes which were fabulous. My daughter & myself completed a range of moves together with the sun setting behind us. The teacher was fun, challenging & very knowledgable.
Our accommodation was lovely, our apartment had a sensational view over the harbour. The rooms were clean, modest but perfect, there was t anything to not like about this place. Every morning we went down to breakfast & ate fresh eggs, figs, water melon, pancakes we drank lemon water & great coffee - after a few days I just felt so healthy - this place is utterly a dream.
Amir's knowledge of the islands & water is outstanding, he is an excellent guide, always supportive, caring - ensuring everyone is having a great time. He's attentive when you're on the water & truly looks out for your safety but also pushes you to try harder aspects of kayaking like going through small gaps in the rocks & entering a cave by kayak. He's got a great sense of humour, we shared meals with him on many evenings &!our fellow kayaker - it was my best & most favourite holiday that I have ever had!! I have travelled far & wide but I truly left my heart in Crostia - I'd return in a heart beat!!!

Booking and correspondence was prompt and easy. Any questions we had were answered. Aida greeted us at the meeting point and guided us to the island where we were to start our kayaking journey. On the island we were greeted by Maria who was to be our kayaking instructor and tour guide. She was lovely and patient with the beginners and made sure to improve any techniques to make it easier for us. She was also very informative and knowledgable of the local area, and of general information and facts pertaining to Croatia! Overall it was a wonderful, fun day and would not hesitate to book with Discrover again! Thank you again to Maria and Aida for a pleasant time!

We signed up for the day long kayaking and bicycling tour with Amir - and we ended up with him and just our family of four (including a teen and preteen). The kayaking was just the right level of activity without being too strenuous, and stopping at the green cave to swim was a highlight. Amir was one of the best guides we've ever experienced in traveling many countries. He was knowledgeable, helpful, engaging and really just made the trip. The bicycling was also the perfect level of exertion to make us feel like we had earned our lunch. Croatia is beautiful, and this trip was very special.

Having only kayaked once before I was a bit apprehensive about our sea kayaking trip. Armin was a great guide, showed us what we needed to, and then took us to a small secluded beach for some snorkeling. Unfortunately, the waves were too big for us to enter the cave, but it didn't really matter as the trip was paced around us, and what we wanted to do.

We had an enjoyable lunch once we reached Sipan, and than an hour of gentle paddling until we returned to Lopud. Armin stopped regularly so that we could rest our arms.

This was a great day out, with a superb guide, and I would definitely recommend this trip to other visitors if heading to Lopud.

We went kayakking with a guide for half a day, visiting one of the caves near Sipan, coming from Lopud island. First our guide Vid gave us an introduction on how to kayak (technique), since it was our first time, and then we left for half a day. Even though we were unexperienced, the trip went well with help form our guide Vid. We went kayakking towards a stone construction, with a beautiful arch, and next towards a cave, and resting around it. This was a great experience !
Ps: anyone with sea sickness should take anti-nausea medication before going kayakking :-)
