Know More about this tour

Following pickup from your centrally located Dubrovnik hotel, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the port of Gruž, where your professional skipper and crew are waiting to welcome you aboard a gleaming sailboat for your cruise around the Elaphite Islands. Hop aboard your boat and find a seat on deck. Then, help yourself to a glass of unlimited wine or soft drink as you slip away from the harbor and out onto the Adriatic Sea’s shimmering waters.

Make your first stop at the island of Koločep, where aromatic lemon and orange gardens and beautiful forests of pine and carob trees await you. As you approach, admire the sheer cliffs that rise dramatically from the sea. Then, disembark and set off to explore independently. Enjoy around an hour of free time to relax on the beach or discover the sun-baked isle’s sights, which include the 15th-century Chapel of St Anton.

Next, continue on to Šipan, the largest island of the Elaphite archipelago. With time here spent at your leisure, perhaps discover the ruins of 15th-century manor houses and medieval churches, or explore the groves of citrus bushes, grapevines and fig shrubs.

After around an hour, return to your boat and set sail for the island of Lopud. As you cruise toward your next destination, tuck into an included onboard lunch. Choose from a selection of traditional Croatian dishes such as local mol fish, chicken or a vegetarian plate, each accompanied by sides such as cabbage salad.

On arrival at Lopud, dock by Šunj, one of the area’s most famous beaches. Lap up the sun on the white sands or dive into the azure waters for a cooling swim. Later, perhaps visit the island’s main town to explore the medieval architecture, aged monuments and other beaches independently.

Return to your boat after around three hours of free time, and then relax on the cruise back to Dubrovnik. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

  • Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great which slightly affected our trip. Our first impression of the boat wasn't good but it actually turned out ok. The islands are nice and some interesting aspects. Food and drink on the boat was plentiful and the 'skipper' cooked us the nicest fish we have had in a long time! Overall a really fun day!

  • A good trip for relaxation. Food was really good.

  • 3 islands, Koločep, Lopud and, Šipan all with subtle differences. Packed in like sardines, it was a very social activity even as a solo traveller as the seating directions make for conversation. The meals were very good, choice of fish, meat, chicken or vegetarian all barbecued up and delivered to the boat for consumption. Free drinks of water, lemonade, red wine and white wine helped loosen tongues and made for a very enjoyable day on the water.

  • We loved Lupod which was the first island we stopped at. We took a 10 golf cart ride to the beach side of the island and found a fantastic sandy beach , no waves and warm water.Two beachfront restaurants served food and drinks with one restaurant offering 2 for 1 drinks . .Plenty of time to relax and enjoy this great large cove.
    Lunch -fish was tasty .We had a fun group which made sure the wine was flowing freely. The other two islands were small and unremarkable with some shops and restaurants.

  • Despite the pick up being half an hour late the overall trip was worth the money. The weather was good but due to a prevailing wind we were only avle to visit two islands, missing out on Sipan. This was disappointing but did not detract from the rest of the day. My choice of lunch was chicken/salad with plenty of fresh bread. Unlimited local wine and soft drinks were available. The boat ride back was bumpy, to say the least, due to rough seas with everyone getting soaked. However this added to the enjoyment. A group of about twenty people from all around the globe who were friendly and food company. All in all I would highly recommend.

  • FUN day and would recommend it to get a flavor of the other islands that aren't as popular. There is little to do on these islands but being able to see and be transported to another island that is less touristy was nice.

  • I throughly enjoyed the day out visiting the 3 islands.It was a beautiful day, the islands were scenic and the food was delicious.

  • Really enjoyed this-because of the weather the order of the islands got changed which worked out very well. On Sipan we wandered up the road out of the port and stumbled upon a vineyard and olive oil producer Family Danicic- fabulous- one of the best Merlots I've ever tried. The other islands were great to explore and there was plenty of time. Loved it.

  • The crew was great, capitan and mate were super fun, lunch was pretty good. We had fish, not sure what kind of fish but it tasted good. Alcohol was cheap, so if you're ok drinking water and cheap wine you'll be fine. My biggest issue with this tour was the boat was not as listed in description. In fact 3 other couples on the trip agreed that picture that Viator had up was not the same that we were on. We only ended up goi g to 2 islands, supposedly the winds were too strong. Overall it was good for the money.
