Our Mljet island tour will take you to this magical place, home to the oldest National Park on the Adriatic.
Situated just an hour and a half from Dubrovnik by speedboat, near the peninsula of Pelješac and island of Korčula, Mljet is one of the many must-see locations of the South Dalmatian coastline.
Our first stop on this Mljet boat tour is at the far end of the island, in a village called Pomena, which is where the entrance to the Mljet National Park is located. Should you need any assistance, your skipper will help you with buying tickets and getting around. With 2 hours of free time, you can visit the saltwater lakes and the monastery of Saint Mary at your leisure.
The richness of the flora and fauna on Mljet Island is one of the reasons why the northwestern part of the island became a national park in 1960. The protected area stretches over 3000 hectares.
As we approach the island by sea from Dubrovnik, you’ll quickly realise you’re entering an unspoiled oasis. It is awe-inspiring to see the dense green vegetation surrounded by clear, mesmerising blue sea, listening to the chirping of the birds and the song of the crickets.
A Mljet island tour is truly a must-do on your Dubrovnik holiday!
If you’re looking for another day trip adventure, you might also like our Elaphite Islands boat tour. Bask in more luxurious time at sea while exploring more islands for fun days out. And, of course, you can always contact us with any special requests to customise your day out.
The next stop on our Mljet boat tour is Odysseus’ cave. Legend has it that Odysseus was shipwrecked on Mljet, and was trapped by the nymph Calypso in a cave that can only be entered by sea, either swimming or in a smaller boat.
The cave is only a few meters wide but, on summer days around noon, the sunlight creates a natural phenomenon: a spectrum of colours in the sea.
We will drop our anchor near the cave and snorkel inside. You will be provided with complimentary snorkels, towels, and a GoPro camera to take the most amazing pictures and videos.
After your snorkelling excursion, you will surely need a break and some tasty nourishment, so we suggest a local speciality lunch on Šipan Island. We will happily offer our recommendation for a delicious seafood restaurant!
After lunch, we will begin our journey back to Dubrovnik. Since this is your private, custom tour, we will happily adjust the speed of our trip and pause for photos or a quick dip in the sea as you’d like!
We hope you’ll create beautiful memories from this day, ones that you will always rewind and replay to remember your experience in Dubrovnik.
