A very good day trip to the Elafiti islands on a pirate ship.
A nice boat with welcoming staff and a reasonable bar.
3 islands visited. Lapud (3hours) kolocep (45 mins) and sipan (1 hour).
Great food too.
The only downside is we wanted more time on kolocep and less time on sipan / lapud.

Brilliant tour which takes you to 3 islands of the Elafiti Islands and gives you time to explore them on your own. The fish lunch is delicious and there is a great atmosphere on the boat from the musicians and the tour guides.

Great tour! We really enjoyed the Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik. This is such a great tour. The boat ride was really fun but also NOT hokey at all. I've been on pirate ship boat tours before and they put on some sort of show that is just kind of dumb, but this is NOT like that at all. Each Island stop is different from the next with various things to do while there. They also give the tour participants a good amount of time at each stop to enjoy each island. The food was also really good as well. I would definitley recomment this tour to anyone.

This cruise is amazing! The ship is incredible, and so much fun to ride on. The Elafiti Islands are beautiful, and you get a surprising amount of time to relax and explore each one. We were very impressed by the whole tour! The lunch is nice, too, but I would suggest asking for an alternative if you don't like fish, because it is a fish lunch.
This cruise is worth every cent you spend - and it's on the cheap side for what is included! I would highly recommend it for anyone considering doing a cruise in Dubrovnik - particularly those who want to avoid the younger, partying type crowd!

This is fantastic trip with some good music entertainment. We were given a shot of Grappa to start the day off and wake us up and then visited three of the Elafiti islands. You spend about an hour on the first two islands and then about 3 hours on the final one. I think this was slightly too long if you are not a fan of sitting on the beach. Great day out though!

We had done other island trips so found this a bit repetitive. Korcula town is mini, more run down Dubrovnik. Guide talked way too long. Have to drive over 2 hours in bus to get to ferry - ferry trip just 20 minutes. Wine trip is on mainland - not on island as we thought - so you only get to see the town on Korcula. The Elafiti Island trip is far, far better.

Overall, the logistics leading up to the sea kayaking Viator tour was not as advertised. What is even worse, the picture used for this advertisement is actually a picture of the "competitors" kayaks; the actual kayaking service is directly across from the picture site, making this entire experience quite confusing and frustrating. Also, the so-called easy directions provided are not that at all; none of the "talk to me about sea kayaking" groups know where to send you--in the end, we matched the advertisement picture, walked down the stairs to the kayaks, asked the "competitor" and eventually was loosely directed to the appropriate check-in spot.

Next, the check-in attendant was uninterested, not friendly and certainly not in the mood for providing additional details regarding the sea kayaking event. Moreover, the tour started 15-20mins late and ended over an hour late due to the unannounced and unadvertised length of the actual amount of "sea kayaking" being done.

For context, this excursion is 99% sea kayaking (over 8 miles) and 1% snorkeling. There was less than 15mins of really snorkeling time; the rest of the 30min stop was used to recover for the upcoming, unknown and unexpected 6-7mile sea kayaking tour around the nude beach island--Viator's travel experts clearly left this 'revealing' detail out. Word for the wise: this isn't a "casual" kayaking tour; if your party is not in great to excellent physical shape, they will struggle mightily and tire out quickly.

One bright spot: the first stop at the cave inlet for snorkeling--there is an actual cliff that can be climbed and subsequently jumped off (i.e. 7-10meters) for a free and fun cliff diving experience! This definitely beats paying 100 kuna to jump from the Old Dubruvnik city wall. So instead of snorkeling, I would plan on grabbing a quick breather and then take a few cliff jumps before kayaking past all the nudes :)

Final conclusion: save your money and do the Elafiti Islands tour :)
