What You Can Expect

Croatia Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Croatia Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Book this fun cruise to three of Croatia’s most beautiful islands, a short boat ride away from Dubrovnik. You’ll escape the tourists of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and get to see what real life is like along the Dalmatian Coast, as you sail along in a 16th-century galleon, complete with a crew dressed up in period costume. 

The first island is Kolocep, laden with coniferous forests, orange and lemon groves and fields of olive trees. Take some free time to relax on the beach or explore the island by foot. Be sure to stop by the Chapel of St Anton, a 15th-century sanctuary with an eye-pleasing collection of paintings from centuries past. 

While on the boat, indulge in drinks and snacks (at own expense) and listen to local musicians play Croatian tunes as the boat makes its way to Šipan, the largest of the Elaphiti islands. On the island, pop into one of the many Gothic churches and Renaissance-era manor houses or stroll among the citrus groves and grapevines. 

Finally, stop on the island of Lopud, where you’ll have 2.5 hours of free time to swim, lounge on the beach or snack on local food before going back to Dubrovnik for the night.

Fun, relaxing day. All the time on the islands was free time. Recommend not eating lunch on the boat. Wait to eat lunch on the last island - very good food with beautiful views.

Just everything as in the tour description.The ship is a beauty. For small kids it would be a childhood dream to feel as real pirates and for adults that kept a childlike heart it is a pleasure too :- So we were satisfied. The crew is friendly. Especially the longer stay at Lopud is worth it, as you can go swimming in the sea and visit the church and lit a candle, through the monastery was unfortunately closed because of renovation work.The other stops are more or less little stops to have some breaks. We did book it without the dinner as fishmeal is not my boyfriends favorite. No prob as the islands offer icecream and potatochips and you can buy drinks as coffee on board.

This tour was everything it promised to be and more. The ship was a huge hit with the children and there was plenty of shade on a very hot day, The tour quides were informative and humerous. The islands visited are very beautiful and enough time is spent on each one to enjoy it. A bonus was the delicious fish and salad served for lunch!

It is truly recommended to visit the Elafiti islands. This tour provided us a compact view of the islands, all in one day. We had knowledgeable guides and also some free time at the end which allowed us to swim at Lopud.

The boat was very unique and beautiful.. Everything was ok.. Multi-language guides in the boat... But there's no choice of food.. They only serve fish or veggies for lunch.. It will be perpect if they have more choices.. Apart from it.. Everything went smoothly.. I highly reccomend this trip..

A wonderful day out exploring the islands and the deep, blue seas. Two down points - initial representative contact was poor and the ship didn't displays its sails! Otherwise lots of fun in the sun!

A bit on the boring side and the lunch left a lot to be desired--the fish was ok but I highly recommend the vegetarian choice eaten by fellow passengers as it had much better flavor. Perhaps much of my disappointment in this tour came from the extreme heat in Dubrovnik during our time there--which was not the fault of the tour company. The crew was exceptional, however, and very caring toward my injured traveling companion who had to remain on the boat during our 3 stops due to her injury.

We enjoyed the cruise and seeing the islands and would probably not have done this independently. Could have spent a little longer on first 2 islands. Really enjoyed the last island and would consider visiting there for a longer stay in the future.
