Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered

Get picked up at your hotel in central Dubrovnik, hop in the cozy air-conditioned vehicle and head to Gruž, the section of Dubrovnik where the new port is located. Meet your professional skipper and crew, and then board the sailboat for your day cruising around the sun-kissed Elaphite Islands. Grab a seat inside or on the deck and don’t be shy about helping yourself to a soft drink or a glass of locally made wine, as the boat begins to sail out of the harbor. 

Your first stop is Koločep Island, where pine forests meet citrus gardens and the Adriatic Sea. Hop off the boat to explore the island on your own and be sure not to miss the late-medieval churches and the 600-year-old manor houses. 

Return to the sailboat and ship off again until you reach the Island of Šipan, where there are more 15th-century and houses to discover. Take a walk around the verdant island, the biggest in the Elaphite archipelago. 

About an hour later, head back to the boat and set sail once again, this time for Lopud. Enjoy lunch on the boat as you cut through the dazzling Adriatic waters. On the menu: fish, chicken or veggie fare. 

Once in Lopud, dock Šunj beach where you can lounge on the shore for a while or go for a swim in the revitalizing waters. Take a stroll around Lopud Town to get a glimpse of island life before returning back to Dubrovnik. The tour’s conclusion is being dropped off at your hotel after a relaxing day of island hopping.
Pass By:  
Following pickup from your centrally located Dubrovnik hotel, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the port of Gruž, where your professional skipper and crew are waiting to welcome you aboard for your cruise around the Elaphite Islands. Hop aboard your boat and find a seat on deck. Then, help yourself to a glass of unlimited wine or soft drink as you slip away from the harbor and out onto the Adriatic Sea’s shimmering waters.
Stop At:  
Kolocep Island
Make your first stop at the island of Koločep, where aromatic lemon and orange gardens and beautiful forests of pine and carob trees await you. As you approach, admire the sheer cliffs that rise dramatically from the sea. Then, disembark and set off to explore independently. Enjoy around an hour of free time to relax on the beach or discover the sun-baked isle’s sights, which include the 15th-century Chapel of St Anton.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Next, continue on to Šipan, the largest island of the Elaphite archipelago. With time here spent at your leisure, perhaps discover the ruins of 15th-century manor houses and medieval churches, or explore the groves of citrus bushes, grapevines and fig shrubs. After around an hour, return to your boat and set sail for the island of Lopud. As you cruise toward your next destination, tuck into an included onboard lunch. Choose from a selection of traditional Croatian dishes such as local mol fish, chicken or a vegetarian plate, each accompanied by sides such as cabbage salad.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
On arrival at Lopud, dock by Šunj, one of the area’s most famous beaches. Lap up the sun on the white sands or dive into the azure waters for a cooling swim. Later, perhaps visit the island’s main town to explore the medieval architecture, aged monuments and other beaches independently. Return to your boat after around three hours of free time, and then relax on the cruise back to Dubrovnik. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Island tour

Really good overall day and staff really friendly on the boat, beautiful islands etc. Only slight downfall was we had paid for drop off back to our pick up point but the driver was a little rude and made us get off the shuttle in the old town giving us a half an hour walk home.

The tour was supposed to start at 9, it started at 10 and we were back at 5 It was supposed to be a sail boat but instead it was a very noisy motor boat The staff was not very pleasant and did not make any commentaries Very disappointed with this tour

Island hopping

Excellent tour with enough insight given for each of the islands. The meal was excellent and the crew was very friendly and professional. The only downside was a bit of congestion for the shuttle back to our hotel. Not a big deal though.

Loved this trip, no complaints about where we stopped or how long in each place, it was perfect. Great way to see a beautiful coastline and islands!

An excellent cruise that takes you to three lovely islands. The views are fantastic wherever you look, with the Adriatic Sea on one side and mountains on the other. One falls in love with the quiet charm of the island and the coastal areas you pass by. The lunch, which was served on the boat, was delicious. It was a medium-size boat with about 30 people on board. So you get to know most people and can enjoy their company while relaxing in the gentle breeze. We found it to be a very enjoyable cruise and would highly recommend it. Croatia is a very beautiful place indeed.

Waste of time - You spend more time getting to the islands than actually being on them. Complete waste of time and money.
Fun day in the sun

Overall enjoyable experience. We were walked from our lodging down to the port where we boarded a 25 seat boat. The people who helped with the initial check in really didn't speak to us that much (which was different from the over-the-top customer service you get in the US). They were in no ways rude but just didn't really acknowledge us. From there, the day did improve. We were offered drinks once the boat started moving. You stop at 3 different Dalmatian Islands and spend 1-1.5hr on the first 2 and closer to 3 hours on the last one. Lunch was served and was actually pretty good. I would definitely do this excursion again if given the option!

It was a nice day out. We visited three islands. The stop on the first island was a bit short would have loved to go swimming, the second one slightly too long and Lopud Island was perfect for having an ice cream and go swimming. The food served on the boat was delicious! It was an enjoyable end to my trip to Croatia.

I must say that when I booked a cruise, I did not expect to rock up to a small boat over filled with people. It was quite unacceptable and some patrons actually got off the boat. Nevertheless, these things are what you make of them. The driver of our boat and tour guide had quite a fun loving nature about him and because of this we really enjoyed the day. The beaches I could not flaw - they were picturesque! , They do however see the tourists coming and charge absurd amounts for things that you wouldn't expect, but this is normal when on vacation anywhere. Be sure to give the golf cart rides a go when visiting the last island, that'll be sure to give you a rush!
