  • Dubrovnik: Half-Day Cave and Beach Tour with Lunch

    1. Dubrovnik: Half-Day Cave and Beach Tour with Lunch

    Admire beautiful caves and the stunning sea on a 4-hour journey from Dubrovnik around Croatia's coast aboard a boat. Relax and enjoy drinks as you admire panoramic views of Croatia, picturesque caves, and beaches. Stop at the famous Blue Cave where you can jump into the water to swim or snorkel. Next, visit three more caves before relaxing on Šunj's sandy beach for an hour — one of the most famous beaches in the Dubrovnik region. Explore the open decks that allow you to feel the cooling sea breeze and while enjoying the striking blue waters of the sea that provide perfect photo opportunities.

    Great time with a small group of strangers. A short trip around Kolocep island to explore caves. The first trio of caves is riveting, with the first one giving you an adrenaline rush, a little bit of danger but all worthy when you need Instagram material. Visiting the sandy beach comes in as a second stop and followed by the blue/green cave as your last stop. There are unlimited water and soft drinks, and the lunch for the day is a school sandwich. I advise using the sandy beach visit to get some čevapi or fried squid at the beach bar.

  • Elaphite Islands Day Trip with Lunch from Dubrovnik

    2. Elaphite Islands Day Trip with Lunch from Dubrovnik

    Your day tour begins with a drive to the port of Gruž, where you’ll board a boat for the excursion to the islands of Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan in the Dubrovnik archipelago. You’ll head to the Elaphiti islands, admiring the beauty of the marine environment. When you arrive at Koločep, you’ll have free time for sightseeing and a chance to explore the island. The next stop is Sipan, where you can enjoy a pleasant walk around the island. When you’re back on board, the boat will head toward the island of Lopud. It’s time for lunch on board! You can choose from 3 menu options: fish, meat, or vegetarian. After lunch you’ll visit the island of Lopud. You can spend your time sightseeing, swimming or relaxing on Šunj Beach.

    Trip is good. Food is good (Fish and Veggie). My only problem to not give 5 stars is the punctuality of the pickup and sailing time. Picked up around 9 and sail start around 10. So we kinda need to wait for an hour so.

    3. Dubrovnik: Odysseus Cave and 4 Islands Speedboat Tour

Great time with a small group of strangers. A short trip around Kolocep island to explore caves. The first trio of caves is riveting, with the first one giving you an adrenaline rush, a little bit of danger but all worthy when you need Instagram material. Visiting the sandy beach comes in as a second stop and followed by the blue/green cave as your last stop. There are unlimited water and soft drinks, and the lunch for the day is a school sandwich. I advise using the sandy beach visit to get some čevapi or fried squid at the beach bar.

This trip to the caves was fun, we went on second smaller boat, and we stopped at a very small cave used by fishermen, just for pictures, a couple of seconds, then we headed to the three caves, the sandy beach in Lopud and to the blue cave. It was a new experience for me and Milo, our guide and Antonio our skipper made it very pleasant, they helped us and explained everything to us, they even offered to accompany me in case I wasn’t feeling so confident to go into the cave.

Brilliant day! Very good value for money, plenty of space on the boat and plenty of drinks too! Very entertaining, good chilled out music on, the guys are very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions you might have. Masks and snorkels were fully cleaned- dry bags available to put a few essentials in for the swim to the beach at Sanj.

The snorkeling tour to the caves and the blue grotto was really great! The guides were totally relaxed and really nice! I can only recommend it to everyone. Food was included - with drinks (beer, cola, water) and sandwiches. Great people!

Really great experience seeing the most beautiful spots and hidden gems of Kolocep Island.
