Explore the idyllic Elaphite Islands on this full-day trip from Dubrovnik on a private boat. Choose between a speedboat or a yacht and relax as your professional skipper guides you around the sun-baked archipelago.
Meet your professional skipper at the prearranged time and location in central Dubrovnik. Hop aboard your boat and take a seat on deck. As you drift away from land, chat with your skipper about the day ahead; one of the advantages of this private tour is that the itinerary can be tailored to your interests.
Take in stunning views of Dubrovnik Old Town as you glide across the Adriatic Sea’s calm waters. Perhaps refresh with some fruit and a soft drink or water, and peer over the side of the boat to see the vibrant reefs and marine life that flourish below sea level. Your first stop is a cave at the island of Koločep. As you approach the island, admire the cliffs that rise dramatically from the sea and then, when your boat comes to a standstill, dive into the water and explore the natural beauty of the wind-carved sea cave (if weather conditions allow).
Then, continue to Lopud. Dock by Šunj, one of southern Dalmatia’s most famous beaches. Soak up the sun on the powdery sands, or jump into the azure waters for a refreshing swim or snorkel. Later, visit the island’s main town to explore the medieval architecture, aged monuments and other beaches independently.
Next, head to Šipan, the largest of the Elaphite Islands. Spend time here at your leisure. Perhaps discover the ruins of 15th-century manor houses and medieval churches, or explore the endless groves of citrus bushes, grapevines and fig shrubs. Then, maybe recharge with lunch at a local tavern (own expense).
After exploring Šipan, return to your boat and cruise back to Dubrovnik. On the way, perhaps ask your skipper to stop at another one of the idyllic islands for a final swim or snorkel. As this is a private tour, you can choose to stay and swim wherever you'd like, as long as it does not jeopardize the safety of the boat or its passengers.
Your tour concludes back at the original start point in central Dubrovnik.
