Dubrovnik Island-Hopping Cruise in the Elaphites Including Lunch
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.

An excellent cruise that takes you to three lovely islands. The views are fantastic wherever you look, with the Adriatic Sea on one side and mountains on the other. One falls in love with the quiet charm of the island and the coastal areas you pass by. The lunch, which was served on the boat, was delicious. It was a medium-size boat with about 30 people on board. So you get to know most people and can enjoy their company while relaxing in the gentle breeze. We found it to be a very enjoyable cruise and would highly recommend it. Croatia is a very beautiful place indeed.
Overall enjoyable experience. We were walked from our lodging down to the port where we boarded a 25 seat boat. The people who helped with the initial check in really didn't speak to us that much (which was different from the over-the-top customer service you get in the US). They were in no ways rude but just didn't really acknowledge us. From there, the day did improve. We were offered drinks once the boat started moving. You stop at 3 different Dalmatian Islands and spend 1-1.5hr on the first 2 and closer to 3 hours on the last one. Lunch was served and was actually pretty good. I would definitely do this excursion again if given the option!
It was a nice day out. We visited three islands. The stop on the first island was a bit short would have loved to go swimming, the second one slightly too long and Lopud Island was perfect for having an ice cream and go swimming. The food served on the boat was delicious! It was an enjoyable end to my trip to Croatia.
I must say that when I booked a cruise, I did not expect to rock up to a small boat over filled with people. It was quite unacceptable and some patrons actually got off the boat. Nevertheless, these things are what you make of them. The driver of our boat and tour guide had quite a fun loving nature about him and because of this we really enjoyed the day. The beaches I could not flaw - they were picturesque! , They do however see the tourists coming and charge absurd amounts for things that you wouldn't expect, but this is normal when on vacation anywhere. Be sure to give the golf cart rides a go when visiting the last island, that'll be sure to give you a rush!
Great crew, a lot of information, fun,music, free drinks! and a lot of nice people!
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!
