What You Can Expect

Best Croatia Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Croatia Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Enjoy a fun and relaxing day out as you sail on a ship designed like a Dubrovnik galleon from the 16th century, completely made of wood and equipped with sails, cannons and a costumed crew dressed like pirates!

Your first stop will be the island of Kolocep, where forests of pine and carob trees, lemon and orange gardens and groves of olives await you. You’ll have enough free time to relax in the beach or explore the isle. Don’t miss the 15th-century Chapel of St. Anton with its collections of landscape paintings from various ages.

Enjoy drinks and snacks at the bar on the boat (own expense) and listen to local musicians while you continue your cruise to Šipan, the largest of the Elaphiti islands. When you arrive, have free time to discover the ruins of medieval churches and 15th-century manor houses, or make your way through groves of citrus bushes, grapevines and fig shrubs -- nibbling some of the fruit as you pass by!

Next, depart for Lopud. Take in views of the beautiful green and blue colors around. In Lopud, you will have 2.5 hours to swim in the Adriatic Sea or relax and work on your tan on the white-sand beaches, before heading back to Dubrovnik in the evening.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

Wonderful trip! It's really worth it if you like islands and a beach trip!

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.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

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!

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

The cruise is nice...however....I felt that after doing ston and korcula islands....this wasn't required....

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

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.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2013

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.
