Overview
Take a day on the Dalmatian Coast to do some island-hopping on this day trip from Dubrovnik. Board the spacious and comfortable boat and set off for pine tree-clad Koločep to swim, snorkel and sunbathe and then to the town of Suđurađ on the island of Šipan to explore the fishing village and the Renaissance-era mansion. Finally, linger on Lopud Island and discover its proud naval traditions. Indulge in a feast of a lunch buffet on the boat and enjoy a drink at the bar while cruising the Adriatic.
What to Expect
Your adventure begins at 9am, when your driver will collect you from your centrally-located hotel and take you to Dubrovnik Port. Board the spacious, air-conditioned boat and enjoy a sail towards Koločep, a pine tree-studded island with a picturesque fishing village along the bay. After some free time for swimming, snorkelling, and sunbathing, the boat will continue its journey to the island of Šipan. Here you will visit the town of Suđurađ, with its charming fishing port, beautiful villas, Baroque churches, and hills speckled with olive trees. Near the main port stand a 16th-century Renaissance mansion belonging to the Skočibuha family, and the centuries-old defence tower nearby once served as protection from pirate attacks.

A delicious Dalmatian buffet lunch will also be served onboard, featuring local cheese and prosciutto, grilled chicken and fish, pasta, various salads, and seasonal fruit.

The last stop of the day is Lopud Island, home to many famous local captains and sailors. Marvel at the white-stone Franciscan monastery that lies right along the water. and take a stroll through the lush Gjorgic-Mayneri Park. If you would prefer to just relax, the white-sand beaches of Lopund Bay are perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Or, if you want a break from the sun, enjoy a cold drink at the boat's onboard bar. After returning to Dubrovnik Port, your driver will take you back to your hotel.

Nice cruise and day outing from Dubrovnik

This cruise was a nice day out from Dubrovnik with our teens aged 14 & 12, it was well organised and served a decent lunch (I wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised). Going on the replica ship “Karaka” was a really neat way to...More

Great day spent on a medieval ship

We had an amazing day on the Elaphite Island Cruise on a Karaka! We were transported to the port from our hotel and boarded the ship fairly easily. There is a lot of seating on the Karaka but there are only a handful of seats...More

Great time

We had a lovely trip... the buffet was reeeeeaally good, loads of food. The staff was helpful, professional, kind and enthusiastic. The band were excellent musicians and singers and played traditional and more modern music, it was sensitively done, not "in your face" at all....More

Amazing ship, great cruise

The team handling the cruise is super nice, the tour is great and despite the bad comments I could read on the food, the lunch was great. The only downside is that I expected the islands to be much more interesting, don’t expect too much...More
