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.

Disappointing trip

I chose this day trip in July at the recommendation of one of the employees at the hotel where I was staying. As an historian, I also thought it would be interesting to go on a replica of an historic ship. Unfortunately we learned almost...More

Decided on this version of the Elaphiti Island tour since the boat was kind of Game of Throne-ish, reviews were decent and seemed like a good option. In reality, boat was overcrowded, the crew was not particularly motivated and the musicians were annoying. Expected the...More

Jolly day out

This an enjoyable way to see the islands. Boat was not too crowded and a reasonable lunch is included. The small band on board was excellent and made the atmosphere on the boat relaxed and happy.
