Great time on the bat. Very enjoyable time. The islands were nice to visit and spend a little time. The cruising on the water the highlight. Biggest plus is since it’s private you can customize the tour. Highly recommend

Relaxing day on a beautiful boat.
rachel_r, Jun 2022
Captain Peter was amazing! He was very gracious, professional and overall a super nice person. It was just my husband and I on the boat. The boat is beautiful, comfortable and very clean. It was not a run downed boat. Peter customized the trip to our requests and he took us to a restaurant on one of the little islands where my husband and I had a phenomenal lunch! Peter set it all up and we did not feel rushed on this day. I would highly recommend this boat and especially Captain Peter. Thank you Peter! We will definitely book with you again next time we are in Dubrovnik.
Response from Host, Jun 2022

Beautiful boat tour
Myoung_K, May 2022
Great trip! We hired the private boat to take us around and had a great time. We enjoyed seeing the Eliphati islands. We loved the option of doing things our pace. My husband and I went with 2 of our adult kids and enjoyed it.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Myoung, thank you for sharing such a nice review with the Viator / TripAdvisor community. Although they are no longer inhabited by deer, the Elafiti islands owe their name to them (Greek: ἔλαφος, elaphos = deer). We are immensely glad that you and your family enjoyed the beautiful landscapes and sandy beaches in peace, and that our service lived up to your expectations. See you on the second occasion.
Best Boating Trip!

Yzana_O, Jul 2021
We booked this private tour and everything was perfect. The communication was great. We were 9, and were picked up by a deluxe Mercedes bus. The boat was a amazing 43’ Velasco and the captain and crew were so helpful. Very impressed with everything. Thank you!

The percect way to escape the cruise crowds!
RWL-FL, Aug 2019
If you are looking for an awesome day and a great way to beat the heat and the summer tourist crowds then this trip is for you. We took the 8 hour option and we were glad we did. There were 4 of us - my wife and two adult kids. Here's why we loved the trip: 1. Matt the captain was terrific. His only goal was to make sure we had a great time. He succeeded. 2. The beaches. We spent an hour or so at one beach - which had a great hill top bar/restaurant with hammocks. 3. Diving off rocks/cliffs. Amazing. 4. Swimming in caves. (He has snorkeling stuff on the boat AND TOWELS! 5. Lunch at BOWA. Matt got us a reservation even though they were supposedly full. This place is extraordinary and the food was amazing. 6. Blue tooth,. We got to listen to our own play list of music! 7. Room for 4 to lay on the deck of the boat - on comfortable cushions - and fall asleep throughout the day. 8. Free beer. 9. Fee wine. 10. Free other drinks (We skipped those). 11. Croatia! Great views, beautiful water and wonderful people. We all agreed that this was the perfect day. THANKS MATT!

Everything was first class. Easy booking and follow up, transfers, cleanliness of boat, attentive staff and magnificent Bows restaurant. No complaints whatsoever, and worth every penny.

Boat Tour for 10 people was out of this world. Marco and Captain Bronco were so knowledgeable and friendly, made our trip to Croatia so much better.
Response from Host, Jun 2019
Dear Evan O, We are delighted that we have provided the expected experience of the beautiful islands of Dubrovnik (Elafite), crystal adriatic sea and azure sky of Croatia to you and your friends.

Christy_C, May 2019
This was a great day! Someone called the evening before to confirm our booking and pick up. Peter was waiting for us at our hotel dock and had a stocked cooler on the boat. The boat was spotless and we had an amazing day! Definitely recommend visiting BOWA restaurant for a drink.

Amos G, Apr 2018
Mario was great. He was informative but gave us privacy to enjoy the day. Awesome way to spend time in Dubrovnik.
Mario and Frano were exceptional...
Yvonne_F, Oct 2017
Mario and Frano were exceptional hosts! They picked us up at a close boat dock, catered to our every needs, took us to some lovely islands, recommended and made lunch reservations, offered their own coats when the weather turned... when an unexpected rain storm hit, Mario and Frano arranged for a ferry and taxi to our hotel, and then took us out for another lovely day a couple of days later when the bad weather passed! We were so humbled by there willingness to take care of us, they were such pleasant people to spend time with. We recommend these guys... they care! A wonderful experience! We fell in love with Croatia!
Great tour with an English speaking...
Emil C, Jul 2016
Great tour with an English speaking captain and guide. Very flexible schedule to accommodate our interests. We an 8 hour tour that included: a mini Game of Thrones tour, view of the old town from the sea, snorkling, walk along one of the Elaphite Island communities and lunch by the water. Definitely recommend.
